Well-developed breasts enhance women’s beauty. But the same breasts sometimes grow disproportionately large and become a reason for chronic pain and embarrassment. Breast Implants surgery can bring large breasts to normal size.
You may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery if you have one or more of the following conditions:
- Breasts are too large in proportion to your body frame.
- Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by the weight of your breasts.
- Skin irritation beneath your breasts.
- Grooving in your shoulders from tight bra straps.
- Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of your breasts.
- Heavy, pendulous breasts with nipples and areolas that point downward.
- One breast is much larger than the other.
- Dissatisfaction or self-consciousness about the largeness of your breasts.
- Inability to find bras that fit.
- Anaesthesia: General
- Duration of Surgery: 3-4 hours
- Hospital Stay: 1 Day
- Stitches: Self-absorbable
- Recovery: Walking and dinner same day
How Is It Done?
Individual factors and surgeon’s preferences will determine the specific technique selected to reduce the size of your breasts. Dr Priti uses short vertical scar technique which results in a scar around the nipple and going vertically down from it till the breast crease. Rarely 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, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position. The areola, which in large breasts usually has been stretched, also is reduced in size. Skin that was formerly located above the nipple is brought down and together to reshape the 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.
