On the one hand too big breasts took shape due to physical condition or any other reason oppress the spine significantly so causing backache and on the other hand they are obstacles in the everyday life, for example during sport or sleeping as well as cause also self-estimation problem for many women. Here the solution can be an operation that lessens the volume, weight of the breasts and form their shape more beautiful at the same time.
For whom we recommend
We recommend breast reduction ideally for women who are already over the childbirth and therefore their breasts have enlarged, become less shapely as well as who have not given birth but their full breasts cause even health or aesthetical problem.
Before the breast reduction
At the first meeting you can discuss with your doctor how smaller breasts you would like to have as it depends on the degree of the reduction what the surgical technique is and where the incisions would be. The scars are usually around the areola, in the fold under the breast and between the former two in a vertical posture forming a T shape. This time the plastic surgeon also informs you if the correction of the areola and relocation of the nipple is necessary (this is practically always needed in case of reduction).
The breast reduction is one of the most complicated breast surgeries so during the first consultation it is also has be cleared up if you have any serious health problem (diabetes, varicose, etc.) These illnesses influence the preparation for the breast reduction so the operating plastic surgeon must know about them by all means.
Before the breast reduction more screening and breast examinations have to be done for the sake of your health.
During the discussion before the operation we also mention the risks of the breast plastic (haemorrhages, scarring) and also the postoperative tasks.
What happens during the breast reduction?
We always carry out the surgery in an operating room equipped with modern, reliable equipments and with a professionally prepared and experienced group of doctors and assistants.
The breast reduction is done under general anesthesia and requires cca. 2 – 3 hours. During the operation we remove the necessary amount of breast tissue, replace the nipple on the appropriate place as well as remove the redundant skin too making the breasts tight, shapely. With this method the asymmetry of the breasts can be corrected as well if there is a need for it.
After the breast reduction
You usually have to spend 1 – 2 nights in the clinic after the breast reduction intervention, in one of our comfortable rooms. After the breast reduction you have to wear a special bra (generally for 4 – 8 weeks). The surgical area can be painful for a few days that we reduce with painkillers.
We remove the stitches on the third week after the operation. You have to treat the body part indulgently in the next 1 month after the breast reduction by all means, avoid physical work, strong strain. After the breast reduction 2 – 3 months are needed for the breasts to achieve their final, shapely form.
