In reduction mammoplasty, a surgeon will remove some of the tissue and skin from the breasts to alter the size your breasts and create a natural-looking shape. If desired, the doctor will change the size or positioning of the areola to suit your needs. Sometimes, surgeons will suggest fine-tuning the precise shape of your breast using liposuction for the most natural look possible. The breast reduction surgery is sometimes paired with a breast lift for a perky and youthful silhouette.
Breast reduction is a long-term solution for health and wellness concerns.
After your breast reduction surgery, your breasts are wrapped in gauze and protected by a special support bra which is sometimes outfitted with a small device for drainage during the first few days as your breasts heal.
Many patients feel comfortable wearing soft tees and blouses that are comfortable during the healing process. After a few weeks, the swelling reduces and many women return to exercise and other activities after three to four weeks on average, the vast majority feeling more confident, active, and unrestrained than ever before.
