To achieve breast reduction, many steps are required from a procedural standpoint. For one, general anesthesia is administered to ensure no pain is felt during the surgery on the patient’s end. From there, incisions are made to cut and remove the appropriate amount of tissue, and in some cases, liposuction techniques are utilized to remove tissue. The exact shape and pattern of incisions used will vary from procedure to procedure, however, your plastic surgeon will walk you through the exact details before operating. Reshaping work will be performed following the appropriate removal, and during this, reshaping the areola (the dark region of skin surrounding the nipple) and repositioning the nipple may be required if your plastic surgeon considers it appropriate, whereas a final breast lift will follow this. Once this is complete, the incisions are closed up and the procedure is complete. For more details regarding what is specifically included in a breast reduction surgery, it is best to speak with your plastic surgeon or have a form of consultation before deciding if it will be beneficial for you.
There is quite a range regarding recovery time for breast reduction surgery as it is typically between 2-6 weeks, where the details of the surgery often play a role in how quickly one will recover. In general, the best way to achieve a speedy recovery is simply resting and taking care of your body. Ensuring a sufficient amount of sleep and proper nutrition and hydration will aid the body in carrying out tissue repairs and immune function for the desired speedy recovery. In regards to the scarring experienced post-surgery, it will fade away and appear less over time, however, the scar will likely be very faintly visible moving forward.
Many people also wonder how sensation in the breasts is altered after surgery, and like all surgeries, this is a potential risk factor: there may be no sensation alteration, a short-term sensation alteration, in which the sensation rebuilds over periods of months following the surgery, and even permanent altered sensation or even sensation loss in rare cases where the nerves aren’t able to fully regenerate. While there are certain aspects to this recovery process out of a patient’s control, it is still crucial to focus on the components we can to aid a speedy recovery.
While weight loss is not the main reason to pursue breast reduction surgery, it is certainly a small outcome of the procedure. On average, people can generally expect to have anywhere from 2-8 pounds of tissue removed from their breasts, but keep in mind that this is patient-dependent. While the weight lost from surgery is not much, patients frequently speak of the drastic change the surgery has brought to their bodies, specifically the idea that it appears they lost more weight from the surgery than in reality.
In addition, the lifestyle changes that breast reduction surgery can bring for people, especially when it comes to ease of exercise, are tremendous, thus, the surgery can actively make it easier for those to pursue weight loss. So to reiterate, people shouldn’t expect to lose a tremendous amount of weight, nor should they view the procedure as a weight loss treatment, however, some very notable benefits may lead to healthy weight loss or desired cosmetic results for some patients.
For some people, large breasts can cause or intensify a variety of health conditions including, but not limited to back pain, nerve pain, skin irritation, and muscle soreness, so it follows that people who experience these and suspect it to be in part due to their breasts may want to consider breast reduction surgery. In terms of the actual threshold of breast size, medical professionals recommend the procedure for candidates with a C cup or larger. Additionally, the surgery has a large amount of interest for aesthetic purposes, which may also be a fit. With that being said, it is still important to consult your physician and plastic surgeon no matter what reasons for pursuing the operation to ensure that it is suitable and safe for you.
