Also known as reduction mammoplasty, breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts. It can also reduce the size of the areola. Women with large breasts may present some problems due to this excess weight, such as back pain and neck pain, skin irritation beneath the breast and respiratory problems.
Although there are different techniques used depending on breast size, patient age, etc., in general, necessary incisions around the areola, vertical and horizontal in the fold (anchor shaped).
Often there are bruises and some swelling in the postoperative period. In some cases there may be a reduction or loss of sensation in one or both areolas, which usually recovers over time. It is very rare partial or total lesion of the areola or nipple. The scars resulting from this surgery can sometimes be bulky or wide, being convenient, in these cases, make an adjustment and scar excision under local anesthesia, after 6 months.
WHO IS THE IDEAL CANDIDATE?
Breast reduction is usually performed to relieve a physical problem, rather than purely aesthetic reasons. Many women who undergo this procedure are concerned about the excessive volume of their chest that interferes with many activities and cause physical discomfort. In most cases the patient wait until the chest is fully developed, although it can be done earlier if the physical problems are very important. This procedure is not recommended for women who intend to breastfeed after pregnancy.
