Large breasts can dominate a woman’s appearance and make you look unbalanced and make exercise difficult or even impossible to do. Breast reduction surgery is a procedure for reshaping exceptionally large breasts surgically to increase your comfort and satisfaction. The aim of surgery is to give you smaller, shapelier breasts that are in proportion to the rest of your body.
Breast Reduction (Mammoplasty) is designed to decrease the volume and size of the breast and usually done under general anaesthesia.
In general the incision has the appearance of an inverted “T” but the size of the incision depends on the shaping and excision required. Extra fat, breast tissue and skin is removed as required and the remaining skin placed under moderate tension to help maintain a natural curved outline for the breast.
What is the recovery time?
Depending on the individual patient recovery times will vary. You should be up and about in a day or two but your breasts may still ache occasionally for a couple of weeks. Most patients will return to work with 14 days but this is down to the individual.
