Breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty Surgery is one of most effective surgical procedures to reduce enlarged or sagging breasts permanently. Usually, women with very large breasts suffer from dragging pain in the shoulder or the upper back. A breast reduction surgery can relax the muscular pain by reducing the breast size leading to a healthier body, free of a backache and shoulder pain. Sometimes, severe embarrassment due to large breasts and infections below the breasts are also major factors that persuade women to ask for the breast reduction surgery. The size of the breast is reduced after removing excess fat, breast tissue and skin from the breast giving it a firmer and a younger look.
The procedure is usually performed under general anaesthesia and the whole surgical process takes three to four hours depending on the volume of breast reduction. Pre-operative marking is an essential and very important part of the breast reduction surgery. Marking is done in standing position and according to the technique used, different measurements are taken and final marking is drawn carefully on the breast. Breast Reduction Surgery in Ahmedabad, India exactly follows the previously made marking pattern. During the breast reduction surgery, excess fat, breast tissue and skin is removed from the breast and the nipple and areola are moved accordingly to its new position. The closure of the surgical incisions produces a circular scar around the new areola which becomes almost invisible with the passage of time and a linear scar from the lower border of areola up to lower pole of the breast (inframammary crease) which also fades nicely within few weeks.
Since a large part of the breast tissue is usually removed during the breast reduction surgery, this surgery considerably reduces the chances of having breast cancer subsequently.
Breast reduction surgery is usually done under general anaesthesia and requires a minimum of two-day hospital stay. For the first few days after the surgery, the patient is advised to wear an elastic bandage or a special surgical bra over the dressings. Usually, the bandages and drainage tubes are removed from the body after a couple of days which greatly facilitates the ambulation of the patient. There are no major complications after a breast reduction surgery in most cases. Some patients may, however, develop small sores at their suture lines after the surgery; these can be treated with antibiotic creams.
