Breast reduction treatment is also known as reduction mammaplasty. It is also a surgical procedure aimed at removing excess tissue, fat, and skin from the breasts. Firstly, a woman can opt for breast reduction surgery for decreasing the size of the breasts. Most women suffer from sagging breasts in the middle age or after pregnancy.

Sagging or heavier breasts can lead to severe neck and back pain, nerve pain, chronic rash and irritation of the skin, difficulty in daily routine and restricted activity. If a woman feels uncomfortable because of the large breasts, they can opt for breast reduction surgery. The surgery offers several benefits such as proportionate body shape, improved confidence, and ease of performing physical activities.

Bigger breasts can also lead to issues such as skin irritation or discoloration under the breasts due to sweating. The surgery is a good choice for women with bigger breasts owing to the higher success rate. Most candidates share that the recovery is quick and symptoms are relieved within a few days after the surgery. The risks if any are rare and minimal.

Breast Reduction Procedure

The breast reductiontreatment is performed via an incision on the breasts. It removes the excess fat, glandular tissues, and skin from the breasts.  The first step is administering anesthesia. It includes anesthesia. The cosmetic surgeon will recommend the best option for you.

The next step is making the incision. They remain visible as they are permanent scars. However, they easily get concealed beneath a bra or swimsuit. An incision is made in a keyhole shape around the areola vertically down the breast crease.

The next phase is removing the tissue and repositioning it. After the incision, the nipple is repositioned. The areola size is reduced by excising the skin at the perimeter if required. 

Underlying breast tissue is reduced, shaped, and lifted. In some cases, for extremely large breasts, the nipples and areola might need to be removed and transplanted to a higher position on the breasts.

The last stage in the procedure is putting the incision together for reshaping it to smaller breasts. The sutures are layered deep inside the breast tissues for creating and supporting the newly shaped breasts, or surgical tapes close to the skin. Incision lines are permanent but slightly fade away or improve over the time.

While the results are visible immediately, the swelling will resolve within some time. As you recover, the confidence will keep on improving.
