Breast reduction

What is Breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure which involves removing excess skin and fat tissue from breasts in order to reduce their size and form an aesthetically pleasing contour of the bust.

The whole breast may be anatomically divided into several regions according to the 3 main arteries and their branches that supply blood to the tissues. Simply put, when the breast is reduced, it still needs its vascular supply from at least 1 of the arteries. An artery, its branches and the tissue surrounding it form a pedicle. Therefore, a great variety of breast reduction methods essentially differ from one another in the pedicle that is kept during the operation as the main irrigator.

In addition to that, there are several incision patterns to choose from, depending on the amount of tissue that has to be resected from the breasts. Wise, also known as inverted T, and vertical incisions are the most commonly used patterns.

Breast reduction surgery for medical reasons

Breast reduction becomes a medical necessity when the size and weight of the bust start affecting one’s general well-being. Excessively large breasts are associated with shoulder, neck, back pain and numbness that may later result in some serious medical conditions that affect the spine and upper body muscles, such as scoliosis, etc. Moreover, a very large bust may limit one’s everyday activities such as exercising and impair one’s social life contributing to an increased daily mental distress. If a person experiences physical or psychological discomfort due to the abnormal properties of one’s bust, a doctor should be consulted.

What is the difference between breast reduction and breast lift? 

The main aim of breast reduction surgery is to make one’s breasts look smaller by removing excess skin and tissue, whereas breast lift adjusts the volume of the breast regardless of their size or shape. However, both of these procedures share techniques of tissue resection and skin incision patterns, with the main difference being the amount of breast tissue resected. Therefore, breast reduction is essentially the same procedure as breast lift but only performed on patients with excessively large breasts.

Who is a proper candidate for breast reduction surgery?

A proper candidate for breast reduction is often someone who has been experiencing neck, back or shoulder pain for a long period of time which cannot be attributed to any other cause but excessively large bust. Moreover, breast reduction should be considered if the size of the breasts affects the quality of one’s everyday life and well-being, as it may significantly improve patient’s self-esteem and body proportions. It is important for a candidate to be in good physical health and have realistic expectations about surgery outcomes, too. As safe and reliable as reduction mammoplasty is, it may be successfully performed on patients who are overweight with BMI up to 33-35.

Preparation for breast reduction 

Success of reduction mammoplasty greatly depends on patient‘s determination to cooperate during the pre-operative period. Here are some major pre-surgery instructions to follow:

Recovery after breast reduction surgery

Recovery after breast reduction takes time and patience for it to be successful.

Post-operative patients are expected to stay at home for at least 1 week. During that time one should refrain from even mildly strenuous activities involving upper body, such as lifting, pushing or pulling heavy objects, driving etc. 

It is required to wear a support bra at all times for 6-8 weeks after the procedure. The bra not only provides support for the breasts, but also holds them in a proper position and so the healing process is accelerated. 

Breast reduction scars are distinctively noticeable in the first few months after the surgery and slowly fade into a thin line later on. However, an unlikely abnormal scarring may be fixed with an additional surgical procedure, if necessary. 

Bruising and swelling around the breast may be present for up to 8 weeks as a clinical manifestation of a local inflammatory response to a surgery. If it lingers on, a doctor should be consulted.

Can breast reduction be combined with other surgeries?

Breast reduction is usually performed together with breast lift and areola reduction. Depending on patient’s preferences, breast reduction may be combined with breast implants as they effectively augment the upper pole of the breast and so the bust regains its natural firmness and symmetry. In some cases, if a patient has recently undergone a massive weight loss in a short period of time resulting in significant sagging skin, breast reduction may be performed together with Fleur de Lis tummy tuck. However, it is worth remembering that the more invasive the procedure is, the higher the risk of peri-operative and post-operative complications, and some additional precautions should be taken. 

After breast reduction surgery 

Once the surgery has been performed, only a few more things should be taken into consideration for a smoother recovery:
