Breast reduction surgery reduces the size of the breast, with the goal being to achieve a beautiful, well-formed shape in the end.
Ladies with large breasts may experience a variety of problems from the weight and size of their breasts, such as:
- Chronic neck & back pains
- Breathing problems
- Severe skin irritations
They may also experience psychological problems, including feeling too self-conscious that affect many of their daily activities.
There are different methods of performing a breast reduction: minimal scar/short scar technique, inverted T technique etc. The latter to be discussed at the time of your consultation, as well as possible risks, postoperative courses and concerns.
This procedure is performed under General Anaesthetic with usually one overnight stay in hospital. The projected initial recovery period is about 12 days.
The results of a breast reduction are permanent.
