Breast reduction surgery is a procedure which reduces the size and weight of the breasts in order to provide a more comfortable situation, as well as a more aesthetically pleasing appearance to a woman’s breast. The advantages of this surgery include a comfortable and lighter, more manageable, and more aesthetically pleasing chest. Possible sequels include changes in sensation, and difficulties with breast-feeding. All aspects of the surgery should be discussed with your surgeon before any surgery is performed.
‘Breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia, and lasts between two and three hours, depending on the individual needs of the patient. During the surgery, the excess breast tissue is removed from the middle and lateral aspects of the chest, the nipple and areola are relocated and lifted to their anatomic position, and all wounds are closed with the scars being located on the underside of the breasts. The surgeon will minimize unnecessary scars. The end result is a chest which is size-proportionate for the patient, and provides a lighter and more comfortable chest for all activities of daily life. The surgery is mostly performed as a day-surgery procedure on an out-patient basis.
