How is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?
Under general anaesthesia, breast reduction surgery includes removing extra skin, glandular tissue, and fat from your breasts, contouring the remaining breast tissue, and relocating your nipples. Usually, the procedure takes two to three hours. This surgery will leave scars in the area of darkness surrounding the areola. You will determine which operation is ideal for your individual situation after discussing options with your surgeon. This surgery is another option for resolving your breasts’ imbalance.
The inverted-T or anchor-type reduction
This method is the most frequent type of breast reduction. Beginning at the nipple, the incision proceeds straight down before continuing down the crease beneath the breast.
Breast reduction in a vertical pattern
There is no cut beneath the breast; instead, the cut is made around the nipple and proceeds straight downward. With this method, the scar is smaller, but the surrounding skin may seem puckered. For very big breasts, the vertical-pattern reduction is inappropriate.
The circumareolar reduction
This procedure is effective only when a little amount of tissue needs to be removed. It may also be advantageous when only one breast has to be shrunk to match the other. The periareolar reduction, often referred to as a circumareolar reduction, leaves just a scar around the areola.
Recovery After Breast Reduction
On the day of your breast reduction operation, you’ll get out of bed, and two weeks later, you can start performing some mild exercises. You should be able to return to your usual training schedule after six weeks. A few weeks following the procedure, your breasts will continue to be uncomfortable and swollen. And you should not lift anything heavy for a few weeks.
