Breast Reduction Surgery (Reduction Mammaplasty)

Like the name suggests, a breast reduction procedure aims to reduce the size of the breasts. Women with large breasts can often suffer from an array of physical symptoms because of the added weight. Heavy breasts can take a toll on the back and can lead to significant pain as time goes on. In other instances, women have noticeably disproportionate breasts, which can cause a patient to feel very self-conscious about their image. During the procedure, excess tissue is removed and the nipple can be repositioned if required. The result is smaller breasts that are shapelier.

The procedure

The process of reducing the size of the breasts is very similar to completing a lift procedure. An incision is made that looks like a similar shape to an anchor, with a circular incision around the nipple, a vertical incision from the bottom of the areola to underneath the breast and a semi-circle cut made in the fold underneath the breast. The incision around the nipple means the size of the areola can be decreased in size if desired.

Once the incisions have been made, the surgeon can remove fat and tissue. The amount removed will have been predetermined before the procedure. The excess skin will also be trimmed away and the nipple is repositioned. After closing with sutures, the gauze dressings are applied and the healing process begins. In order to aid the healing process, patients will be asked to wear a surgical bra for several weeks after the procedure. This bra will hold the breasts in place.

Potential complications

All procedures will come with risks and it is important for a patient to know and understand any possible complications that could occur during or after surgery. There is a risk of general surgical complications, which include risks such as bleeding, excessive scarring or infection. Risks that can occur with this specific procedure can include loss of sensation in the nipples and areolas. This is particularly a risk when a significant reduction and repositioning has been performed.

There is also the possibility that the final result of your procedure will not be what you expected. For this reason, it is important you have a thorough discussion with your plastic surgeon prior to the surgery to determine the realistic outcome of the procedure.
