Some women, due to the large size of the breasts, often suffer from pain, difficulty playing sports and muscular contractures in the back due to bad positions from the mammary weight. Reducing the breast volume improves the quality of life in these patients.
This surgery helps to avoid problems related to back pain, shoulders, neck, skin irritation under the breasts, insecurity, difficulties playing sports and other activities. A breast reduction not only reduces the size, but also repositions the areola and nipple so that the new size is harmonic.
The excess skin that is located in the area near the areola is removed to adopt the new upper position, and diagonal openings are made in the lower part of the breast that extend far enough to result in a scar around the areola coming down vertically from its edge to the lower mammary groove.
The results are seen immediately, although there is a healing process and inflammation that gradually decreases. You will see the final result after 2 or 3 months. You can go back to your daily activities approximately 2 weeks after the procedure, but you will not be able to carry things during the first month.
It is important to follow your doctor’s instructions to avoid compromising the result of your surgery and to have a satisfactory recovery. For example, do not raise your arms above your shoulders, do not sunbathe and do not carry weight during the time indicated.
