Before and During the Surgery
Before a breast reduction, we will complete a detailed medical evaluation of your health and medical history. The breast reduction is preferably performed on individuals who are physically healthy and non-smokers. The patient will be advised to avoid tobacco products, alcohol beverages, definite blood-thinning supplements and medications for a number of days before the breast reduction. To begin with, the patient will be placed under the influence of general or local anesthesia. The surgeon will create small incisions in the region of the areola, the bottom of the breasts or along the breast fold. After that, the surgeon will remove the breasts’ excess tissue, fat and skin. Once finished, the incisions are closed. Instantly following the breast reduction, discomfort, numbness, and swelling can be experienced but these can be managed with prescribed medication. To control swelling, aid proper healing and support the new form, a bandage or compression garment is wrapped into the surgical site for a number of days. After a week, the patient can get back to her normal routine and work but must avoid heavy lifting and energy-demanding activities for two to three weeks.
