How is breast reduction surgery done at Ambrosia Clinic in Hyderabad?
As one of the top plastic surgery clinics for Breast reduction surgery in Hyderabad, We have always been particular about the process we follow, it has been the core of our success. We believe that the following steps are extremely important:
During the consultation, discuss your desired breast size as well as anything else about your breasts that you would like to see improved with Dr Priti. You can see the representative clinical pictures of patients to satisfy yourself about the procedure and ask any questions regarding the results, and possible risks of the surgery. You should come to the consultation prepared to discuss your medical history. This will include information about any medical conditions, drug allergies, medical treatments you have received, previous surgeries including breast biopsies, and medications. It is important for you to provide complete information. You should tell if you plan to lose a significant amount of weight, particularly if you have noticed that your breasts become smaller with weight loss. It is recommended that you stabilise your weight before having surgery. Routine diagnostic tests will be ordered.
Before taking you into the operation room, your breasts will be marked with you standing to shape them to the desired size. The operation is under general anaesthesia and is pain-free.
You will wake up soon after surgery with a bandage and bra on your chest. You can drink water after 4 hours and have some snacks afterwards. You walk and have dinner on the same evening. Drains (tubes) are usually removed the next morning, and you are ready to go home.
About the Breast Reduction surgery
Individual factors and surgeon’s preferences will determine the specific technique selected to reduce the size of your breasts. Dr Priti Shukla, one of the most renowned lady plastic surgeons in Hyderabad, uses the short vertical scar technique which results in a scar around the nipple and going vertically down from it till the breast crease, leaving the barest minimum scar. On rare occasions, the scar may be inverted T-shaped if the breasts are too large.
One incision is made around the areola. Another runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease underneath the breast. After the excess breast tissue, fat and skin are removed using a process known as breast liposuction, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position. The areola, which in large breasts usually has been stretched, is reduced in size and the skin that was formerly located above the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the breast.
Breast Liposuction may be used to improve the contour under the arm. Usually, the nipples and areolas remain attached to remaining breast tissue, and this allows for the preservation of sensation. The ability to breastfeed may also be preserved by this method, although this cannot be guaranteed. Rarely, if your breasts are extremely large, the nipples and areolas may need to be completely detached before they are shifted to a higher level. In such a case, you will need to have made the decision to sacrifice sensation and the possibility of breastfeeding to achieve your desired breast size.

Are there risks involved in Breast Reduction surgery?
As in any major surgery, there are always risks; however in Breast Reduction Surgery significant complications are rare.
Some of the potential complications may include bleeding, infection and reactions to anaesthesia. On rare occasions, a patient may require a blood transfusion during the operation. This can be anticipated in advance, and blood of a known donor can be reserved for possible transfusion.
Following reduction, sometimes the breasts may not be perfectly symmetrical, or the nipple height may vary slightly. If desired, minor adjustments can be made at a later time. Permanent loss of sensation in the nipples or breasts may occur rarely. Revision surgery is sometimes helpful in certain instances where incisions may have healed poorly. In the unlikely event of injury to or loss of the nipple and areola, they usually can be satisfactorily reconstructed using skin grafts.
How will I look and feel after the surgery?
The day after surgery, you will be encouraged to get out of bed for short periods of time. During the course of the next several days, you will be able to move about more comfortably. However, straining, bending and lifting must be avoided, since these activities might cause increased swelling or even bleeding. You may be instructed to sleep on your back to avoid pressure on your breasts.
Any surgical drains will be removed a day or two after surgery, at which time your dressings may also be changed or removed. You will be instructed to wear a support bra for a few weeks until the swelling and discoloration of your breasts diminishes. Stitches are self-absorbable.
You will feel less sensation in the nipple and areola areas. This is usually temporary; it may, however, take weeks, months or even more than a year before sensation returns to normal. Your breasts may also require some time to assume a more natural shape. Incisions will initially be red or pink in colour and remain this way for many months following the surgery.
After Breast Reduction Surgery, it is often possible to return to light work after a week or two, depending on your job. In many instances, you can resume most of your normal activities, including some form of mild exercise, after several weeks. You may continue to experience some mild, periodic discomfort during this time, but such feelings are normal. Severe pain should be reported to your doctor.
Any sexual activity should be avoided for a minimum of one week, although your plastic surgeon may advise you to wait longer. After that, care must be taken to be extremely gentle with your breasts for at least the next six weeks.
What results can I expect after my breast reduction surgery?
Breast Reduction Surgery will make your breasts smaller and firmer and lighter. If you have suffered from back ache due to heavy breasts, it will be relieved. Your posture will improve. The incisions from your Breast Reduction Surgery will heal and fade over time. It is important to realise, however, that the incision lines will be permanently visible, more so in some individuals than others. Fortunately, the incisions of Breast Reduction Surgery are in locations easily concealed by clothing, even low-cut necklines.
Is Breast Reduction Surgery permanent?
Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, your breast size should remain fairly constant. However, gravity and the effects of ageing will eventually alter the size and shape of virtually every woman’s breasts. If, after a period of years, you become dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may choose to undergo a Breast Lift Surgery to restore their more youthful contour.
For how long do I need to see the doctor after the surgery?
You will be required to return for follow-up care at prescribed intervals, usually two days, two weeks one month and three months later. During these visits, your progress will be evaluated, and minor problems are taken care of. Once the immediate postoperative follow-up is complete, you will need to return for periodic checkups to observe and discuss the long-term results of surgery. You are not charged for follow-up visits after surgery till one year. Please remember that the relationship with your plastic surgeon does not end when you leave the operating room. If you have questions or concerns during your recovery or need additional information at a later time, you should contact Dr Priti Shukla. We take our patient care very seriously at Ambrosia Clinic.
Will I be able to breastfeed after Breast Reduction Surgery?
Since the breast gland and ducts are routinely removed during Breast Reduction Surgery, chances of breastfeeding go down; however the remaining gland can still produce milk and you can safely breastfeed if you are producing milk. A lot of women have breastfed after this surgery, but there is no guarantee that you will be able to do so.
If I am yet unmarried, do I need to inform my future husband about my Breast Reduction Surgery?
Scars of the surgery tend to fade out but usually are visible on close examination permanently. So the decision to divulge information regarding the surgery is entirely up to you, after weighing all the pros and cons.
Is the breast gland that is removed routinely sent for biopsy?
It is recommended to have the tissue examined by a pathologist to detect any coincidental tumour that may be too small to be detected otherwise. If you are younger than 25 and have no history of breast lums or family history of breast cancer, the biopsy is optional.
How long do I have to wait to buy new sized bras and clothes after the surgery?
Will my breasts enlarge again after the reduction surgery?
All conditions remaining constant, breasts do not enlarge again. However, if you gain weight, become pregnant or if you had the surgery before your breasts were fully grown, they may enlarge to some extent. If necessary, the same procedure can be repeated.
Is there any way to reduce the risk of scarring post the breast reduction surgery?
Scars can be gradually reduced by creams, gels and taping for 3 to 6 months. Excessively prominent scars can be revised surgically after six months.
Is there any way to have the breast reduction surgery done without scarring?
I am 30 kgs overweight and unable to exercise because of my large breasts. If I have the Breast Reduction Surgery now and lose weight over time, what can I expect about the size of my breasts?
I have had bariatric surgery to deal with morbid obesity and have lost 50 kgs. My breasts are now sagging. Can I have Breast Reduction Surgery to correct this?
One of my breasts is larger than the other. Do I need Breast Reduction Surgery for the bigger breast or enlargement surgery for the smaller one?

What is the cost of female breast reduction surgery in Hyderabad, India?
I had lovely laugh lines that made me look attractive when I smiled, or so my friends said. But it worried me that my skin was getting less supple as I grew older. Having read and heard so much about skin tightening treatments, I decided to give it a shot. My first consultation at Ambrosia helped me understand what to expect and how to care for my skin post procedure. Dr. Priti’s thoroughness during the examination was very reassuring too. I thoroughly recommend everyone who is concerned about their skin looking uncared for as they age. Ambrosia totally helped me remind myself that age is only a number. Thank you Dr. Priti for your magic.

My teenage acne had left a lot of scars on my face. That was all I saw when I looked in the mirror. While searching for treatment, I came across Ambrosia and decided to check out what could be done about it. My first impression when I walked in was one of complete ease with the warmth of the staff and the calm atmosphere. The initial consultation helped me understand what can be done to gradually remove the scars on my face as well as what I needed to do post-procedure. I am so happy with the results and go out of my way to mention Ambrosia whenever someone points out how smooth and beautiful my skin looks now. Thank you Ambrosia!

I had broken my nose as a child after a fall. It was misshapen because of that. The twisted nose also led to breathing problems. Searching for solutions, I came across Ambrosia Clinic and the procedures they offer to correct that. I was suggested surgery. I am thankful to the team of plastic surgeons who helped correct my nose as well as the breathing problems. My recovery time was minimal and I am able to lead a normal life since then. A big thank you to the great team at Ambrosia.

I had skin pigmentation on my face. It always made me conscious and I would hide it with layers of makeup. My friend suggested I meet Dr. Priti and do something about it instead of hiding behind makeup. I did not know what to expect, but was totally blown away by her warmth and the modern set up at Ambrosia. She not only explained the procedures I could get done but also what to expect at each stage during recovery. I thoroughly recommend Ambrosia and especially Dr. Priti to everyone.
