Some women long for fuller and bigger breasts, but the large size is not always a blessing. Excessively large breasts, i.e., macromastia, have been linked with a variety of physical health issues, including-
Though some women address these problems with the help of heat packs, massages, or physical therapy, they are not long-term solutions. But all these problems can vanish with a breast reduction.
Once you decide to undergo breast reduction surgery, the doctor needs to evaluate your health to ensure that you are an ideal candidate for the procedure. The plastic surgeon will discuss the following things to diagnose your health-
Based on the discussion, the doctor will assess the risks and potential complications of the surgery and provide instructions to prepare you for the surgery.
As the method for breast reduction varies significantly, the procedure is different for each patient. The steps involved in the procedure are explained below-
Your breasts will be covered with a gauze dressing or bandages. A tube may also be placed to allow drainage of excess blood or fluid.
The plastic surgeon will guide you properly to prepare for breast reduction surgery. You will be asked to get the following things done-
Besides these, the doctor will also give you instructions regarding what to do and what not to do on the day of surgery, such as-
During the Surgery
The risks with breast reduction surgery are very similar to other procedures. The potential risks are-
After the Surgery
Along with the risks during the procedure, many complications can also arise after the procedure. These complications include-
Immediately after the surgery, your breasts may feel tender and sensitive. The doctor will prescribe pain medications to manage your pain and antibiotics to minimize the risk of infection. The breasts will be swollen and bruised after the procedure. For that, the doctor will suggest wearing an elastic compression bra to support the breasts.
You are most likely to get discharged on the same day. If necessary, you may have to stay overnight in the hospital. The surgeon will provide a detailed recovery guide before the discharge and enlist the follow-up schedule.
Typically, breast reduction is needed for women whose breast size has increased significantly – a condition known as macromastia. In this condition, the breasts become disproportionate and start causing physical and emotional distress. The pain and discomfort further make it difficult for the woman to perform common physical activities, including running, jogging, etc. A woman may opt for the surgical reduction to resolve issues, such as-
Breast reduction addresses physical and psychological issues and helps to get rid of such problems effectively. Along with undergoing breast reduction for medical reasons, there are many women who opt for the procedure for aesthetic reasons to cite cosmetic concerns, such as social stigmas or wardrobe concerns.
No, hospitalization is generally not necessary after breast reduction. The patient is discharged on the same day of surgery. The doctor will only ask the patient to stay longer if there is a risk of post-surgery complications.
After breast reduction, you will have to wear a support bra 24×7 for the first two weeks. Later on, the bra needs to be worn at least 12 hours a day until the breasts heal completely.
Yes, you can breastfeed after undergoing a reduction mammoplasty. However, the amount of milk that can be produced by the glands may be affected.
Yes, it is completely safe to combine a breast reduction and lift. It provides aesthetically pleasing results and improves the shape of the breasts. The size of the breasts is reduced considerably to make them perkier and lifted.
Most surgeons recommend waiting until the breast development is complete before getting the surgery.
You can discuss the goals with the surgeon before the surgery so that he/she will have an idea of what your expectations are regarding the size of the breasts.
Usually, the breast size won’t increase again. However, the breasts may feel enlarged during pregnancy. Another scenario where you might feel like your breasts are getting larger is weight gain.
A woman is considered the right candidate for breast reduction surgery if she meets the following criteria-
Liposuction for Breast Reduction
In many cases, breast reduction can be made using liposuction alone. This technique involves using power-assisted, laser-assisted, or ultrasound-assisted liposuction that breaks down the fat tissues and suctions them out. It is a minimally invasive procedure chosen for patients who have primarily fat tissues in the breasts. The best candidates are the ones who desire only slight moderation in the breast size and have good skin elasticity with no sagging.
Vertical or ‘Lollipop’ Breast Reduction
Patients who need a moderate reduction in breast size and have noticeable sagging are the best candidates for vertical breast reduction. This technique involves making two incisions, one is around the edges of the areola, and the second one is vertically from the bottom pint of the areola to the inframammary fold or the crease beneath the breast. This pattern allows the plastic surgeon to remove excess skin tissues and breast tissues to reshape the breasts internally.
Inverted-T or Anchor Breast Reduction
For heavier and bulky breasts, the inverted-T method is used. It involves making 3 incisions, one around the bottom edge of the areola, one from the areola to the breast crease in the vertical direction, and the third one along the crease underneath the breast. This technique allows better tissue removal and reshaping. This approach is preferable when the breasts are asymmetrical and have considerable sagging.
Breast reduction is a life-changing decision for most women. Every woman who was suffering due to the large size of the breasts will get permanent relief and also experience other benefits too.
Some key benefits of breast reduction are given below-
Some non-surgical or natural methods to reduce breast size include the following-
These methods are not as effective as surgery in reducing breast size.
The results of breast reduction surgery are clearly visible once the reduction is done. The effects will be noticeable after the swelling subsides. The size of the breasts will be smaller than before, and the backache, neck pain, and other problems will also disappear. The scars from breast reduction surgery take some time to fade.
The average recovery time after breast reduction takes around 4 to 6 weeks. Throughout that period, the patient has to take extensive care of the body to get the expected results. The exact time may vary for each patient based on the overall health and the technique used.
In Jan 2022, a patient, Sharon (name changed), came to us concerning the large size of her breasts that were causing physical discomfort and backache. Her breast size was 38DD, and they sagged to a great extent. She wished to undergo breast reduction surgery.
Dr. Sharad Mishra handled the case. Sharon was overall healthy and had an ideal body mass index. The doctor ensured that she was an ideal candidate and then performed the surgery. Her size was reduced to 4 cups through the Inverted T technique. As Sharon was overall in good health, there were minimal risks, and the surgery took around 2 hours to finish. She was discharged on the same day.
She is perfectly happy with her 34B breast size. She recovered quickly and is now living a life without any type of back, neck, or shoulder pain.
The breast reduction surgery cost in India ranges from Rs. 70,000 to Rs. 1,50,000 approximately. The actual cost will be different for each patient due to the following factors-
