Breast reduction

General information about breast reduction


Breast reduction is a surgical procedure performed under general anesthesia and in most cases supported by social security if the amount of gland removed in each breast is greater than 300 grams.

The intervention consists of reducing breast volume and also of correcting the ptosis.

Given the problem of back pain, discomfort in sporting activity and in getting dressed, or the impact in social life, breast reduction is often seen as an option.

The preoperative mammograms are carried out systematically.

If overweight, a diet is recommended before any surgical intervention, with weight stabilization of at least 3 months.

 

Quitting smoking is strongly recommended.

Postoperative the breast reduction


Postoperative there will simply be some bruising and swelling which usually disappears between the 8th and 10th day.

Scars which are large or hypertrophic, generally inverted T-shaped, settle between three and six months after surgery.

They are permanent and in some cases may require touch up surgery or a prescription patch silicone scar when very inflamed.

A decrease or sometimes a temporary disappearance of sensitivity of the areolas is caused for several weeks or months. The return to normal usually occurs after one year.

Wearing a bra day and night for a month is advised after the surgery.

Sports are prohibited for a month and a check-up is carried out within 10 to 15 days after the surgery.

The final result can be seen between 6 and 8 months.

Pregnancy can change the shape of the breast and is not recommended within one year following breast reduction.

Breastfeeding is usually possible after a breast reduction.

In case of breast enlargement, a small vertical mammaplasty may be performed which eliminates the horizontal scar in the inframammary crease, with a periareolar scar (periareolar and vertical).

The benefits of breast reduction, in terms of back pain, or for sports and getting dressed, puts the intervention and scarring into perspective in most cases.

Surgery for breast ptosis



The procedure is identical to that of breast reduction for hypertrophy, with scars most often an inverted T. The length of the scar depends on the amount of skin removed and the degree of the ptosis. In cases of a moderate ptosis, the technique of vertical mammaplasty can be applied, removing scarring of the horizontal inframammary fold. In cases of a severe glandular mould, for a stable curved breast a silicone gel breast implant should ideally be combined with the treatment of ptosis.
