Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and performed with general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery is dependent upon a variety of factors, including what incision method is used, the overall technique, the degree of reduction. The nipple and areola repositioning will also be a factor. In most cases, liposuction is required for fat removal to decrease the breast size. During the consultation, all of these factors are addressed with Dr. Schwartz. The topic of scarring is also discussed as it is common to occur, although advanced methods have led to a decrease in overall scarring. Depending on the complexity of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be used. The breast tissue is removed, and the remaining tissue and skin is tightened.
What to Expect
After surgery, patients will be observed closely in our private recovery facility and then released home to heal. A draining tube will most likely be placed near the surgical site to help control swelling and bleeding. A medical sports bra should be worn for several days that will improve blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will settle and the post-op effects will disappear. The majority of our patients remark they feel very relieved, lighter, and more self-assured. After breast reduction surgery, you can buy the clothes you have always wanted and feel confident with your new contour. Remember, it is still important to adhere to a healthy weight so the results are not negatively impacted.
