While there is a large section of the population looking to enhance the size of their breasts, there are also those who wish to make their breasts smaller. For them, breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty is the recommended procedure.
After Surgery: What to Expect
After the breast reduction surgery is completed, your surgeon will place a bandage/gauze to cover all the incisions. The breasts will either be wrapped in elasticated bandages or supported using a customized surgical bra. Your surgeon may also feel the need to insert a tiny tube in both breasts in order to drain out any remaining fluid or blood. These tubes are placed temporarily and will be removed within a few days.
You would need to come back to your surgeon in one or two weeks to get the stitches removed too. After the breast reduction surgery, most women experience minor pain in the breast in the first couple of days. This minimal discomfort usually subsides within a week. Dr. Minniti may prescribe certain pain relief medications to help during this period. You could expect the bruising and swelling to remain for some weeks as the healing progresses. It is a good idea to wear the surgical bra consistently as it helps minimize swelling and will also give good support to your breasts.
Patients all over the world vouch for the efficacy of the breast reduction procedure and the accompanying results. The transformation in your breasts is a long-lasting one, though it may over a period of time be slightly affected by factors such as aging, hormonal and weight fluctuations, and gravity The new size of your breasts will also alleviate the physical restrictions and pain experienced before surgery. In addition to this, a better-proportioned and more attractive physique will naturally boost your self-image and self-confidence.
