How this Procedure is Done
What is Breast Reduction?
Because of having large breasts, some women suffer from back and neck pain, poor posture, difficulty in exercising, and finding clothes that fit.
In breast reduction surgery, the surgeon removes excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breast to reduce the cup size. After the operation, patients usually feel better since back, shoulder, and neck pain are highly reduced. The breasts also become more uplifted, and clothing fit better.
Before undergoing this surgery, you need to consult with skilled plastic surgeons with specialized training and considerable experience to discuss your goals and express your concerns. They will review your medical history, determine how much breast tissue can be removed for your comfort and self-confidence, and inform you of the possible risks and complications. Considering all these issues and the importance of such surgeries for your appearance and self-esteem, Iranian experts can help you a lot since they are so well-known specially for successful cosmetic surgeries they annually perform. They can make sure that you are healthy enough to have this surgery, raise your awareness of the stages you need to go through and order the necessary tests before the surgery.
Who Can Benefit From Breast Reduction?
For undergoing this surgery, there is no age limit. Even teenagers can have it if they suffer from the problems mentioned previously. However, if breasts aren't yet fully developed, surgeons avoid performing it for you.
Women with large and heavy breasts having problems like back and neck pain can undergo this surgery. They should be in good overall health with no special disease or destructive habits like smoking or taking certain medications which can reduce the effectiveness of the procedure.
This surgery is mostly carried out as an outpatient procedure and may take two to five hours. Surgeons make incisions around the areola (the area surrounding the nipple) and go down in a straight line to the bottom of the breast.
For extremely saggy large breasts with a large amount of volume, another incision might be made in the crease of the breast. Afterwards, excess fat, skin, and tissue are removed, and the breast is tightened and lifted.
Following the operation, patients need to rest for the first several days. Extreme physical activities and exercises specially those involving the upper body should be restricted for at least one month. However, light exercise is permitted if the patients don’t feel pain.
They will need to wear a special bra during the recovery process to help support the breasts. There are no worries about swelling since they will reduce gradually.
Your surgeon will set several follow-up appointments to remove bandages and stitches later on. Patients can usually go back to work after 7-10 days.
If all the steps are taken successfully, pain in your back, neck, and shoulders will reduce to a great extent. Your ability also increases to do physical exercises, and you will definitely feel more confident. Patients should consider one significant issue; despite the fact that results are permanent, the breast shape and size may change because of aging, extreme weight gain, or weight loss.
