This surgery is done to reduce and reshape breast size. This ensures that the breasts are proportional to the rest of the body and that they do not cause physical discomfort. Overly large breasts can lead to physical and psychological discomfort.
You should consider having this procedure if:
• Your breast have become too large compared to your body frame.
• Your large breasts cause you back, neck or shoulder pain.
• Your breasts are heavy and your nipples are pointed downward.
• One of your breasts is significantly larger compared to the other.
How the Procedure is Carried Out
Initial consultation is required to iron out the fine details about the surgery. The surgeon will explain the procedure, its potential side effects, and come up with a suitable plan of action. This procedure usually takes between 3 and 5 hours to complete.
The doctor begins by removing excess breast tissue, skin, and fat. The areolas and nipples are then set at a higher position, while the skin located below the nipple is brought down and reshaped to finish the breast. The surgeon will try to conceal incision lines within the natural breast contours. Despite their permanent nature, incision scars usually fade with time.
Liposuction is used for women who have fatty breasts and only require minor-to-moderate reduction. It is also suitable for women who do not want visible surgery scars, or reduced sensation in their breasts. It can also be used to correct asymmetry.
