Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for women with very large breasts causing them medical or psychological problems.
Women with very large breasts may experience various medical problems. Common complaints are back and neck pain, breathing problems and irritation/maceration of the skin under the breasts. Breast reduction will reduce or cure most of these symptoms by reducing breast size. Breast reduction can also reduce anxiety in women with very large breasts. The procedure removes skin and breast tissue which makes the breasts smaller and firmer.
Breast reduction is normally safe when performed by a qualified plastic surgeon. However, as with any surgery, there is some risk involved and possible complications. Please check with your surgeon regarding the details of these risks and complications.
Breast reduction is usually done as an outpatient procedure in a hospital, surgery center or office. The surgery usually takes 2-4 hours. Breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia.
Some women can return to work in about 2 weeks and others may take as long as 4-6 weeks depending on their job requirements.
Most patients are very satisfied with their operation and most are symptom free compared to their preoperative condition.
