Breast Reduction Techniques

During the surgery, excess skin will be taken and the nipple will be realocated to where it should be in order to reduce the volume of tissues.This operation can be applied in different methods, varies depending on the size of the breast. It can be defined only after the evaluation. If the breast is very large, an inverted T-shaped incision is formed, while the small breast consists on surrounding the brown region of breasts as a lollipop and a straight line descending downwards.The traces are initially red but it becomes paler and start to disappear step by step after a year at the most. Generally, it does not bother the person in their daily life.

After The Operation

After the breast reduction surgery, it’s necessary to stay in the hospital for 1 night. Usually the next morning the drainage is removed and the patients discharged. Edema and swelling in the tissue after surgery decreases in 3 to 4 weeks. The final shape of the breast takes up to 6-12 months. During the recovery period, burns and tingling may cause a slight pain sensation. After the operation a sport bra must be worn day and night for 3 to 4 weeks for limited movements and for the comfort. 3 days of rest can be enough after the procedure and the daily life can be recuperated after this period.
