Breast Reduction Summary
This surgical procedure reduces overall breast size through the removal of breast tissue and skin. The breasts usually require some reshaping, and it’s common for the areola to be resized or relocated. Upon the removal of the necessary amounts of tissue and skin, the carefully placed incisions are closed. General anesthesia is typically given in breast reduction procedures, and patients can expect the surgery to take between three to five hours to complete. This type of surgery is most often done on an outpatient basis. Liposuction and breast lift may be performed in addition to breast reduction as complementary procedures.
The incisions will typically be dressed with gauze following breast reduction surgery, and the breasts will need to be supported with a special bra or bandage that will need to be worn for up to a few weeks. Sometimes drainage tubes used to evacuate blood and fluids are put in place for two to three days. Sutures will usually dissolve gradually. Patients may experience some pain and discomfort for the first several days following surgery, with minor aches lasting a couple weeks. In addition, bruising or swelling lasting up to three weeks is normal. Continuing to wear a surgical bra during all hours of the day and taking medicine as directed by Dr. Yarish can help with these symptoms. Regular activities can resume within a couple of weeks.
All scars can be concealed beneath bras or bathing suits and will fade over time. Dr. Yarish’s experience and skill make this procedure safe and effective, and all relevant safety information will be shared with you prior to the procedure.
Breast reduction surgery can increase both physical and emotional comfort in patients. It can relieve a lifetime of suffering, allowing patients improved function in all areas of life. Call us today for your consultation appointment.
