Breast Reduction Surgery
0 Replies
bodiesbeautifuluk - June 29

Breast Reduction surgery is performed in an operating theater under general anaesthetic, and can last from 2–4 hours. Surgeons carrying out breast reductions tend to use classical stitches that will be removed about 14-21 days after the surgery.

At operation the plastic surgeon will removes excess fat, glandular tissue and skin that all contribute to large, pendulous breasts. In order to achieve the desired shaping, the surgeon will make anchor-like incisions, creating a vertical line downwards from the areola (the colored area around the nipple) and the horizontal line beneath breast. In most cases the areola, its blood vessels and nerves are detached to be repositioned together.

The vertical incisions are joined to reshape the smaller breasts. Sometimes, in significant reductions, it might be necessary to detach the areola totally and to relocate it. The size of the areola can also be reduced, if this is needed. Either before or at the time of surgery the plastic surgeon will decide the most appropriate technique to use.

The scars from breast reduction surgery will not normally be visible in normal clothing or in most swimwear. After the operation the surgery scars will appear red, firm and raised. Remember it is still early days and these scars will mature, fade, and soften within 3–12 months. Very often scars fade and are almost invisible, however some scars may become wide and raised (keloid scarring). The final appearance of the surgical scars is impossible to predict prior to surgery.
