Information about breast reduction
Breast reduction surgery, is a common plastic surgery procedure.
Breast reduction is primarily done because of physical problems, but also for purely cosmetic reasons. Most women who reduce their breast size have problems with large, sagging breasts that hinder them in their daily life and while exercising. Heavy bust can cause skin irritations and eczema under the breasts and pain in the neck, shoulders and back. Bra straps are often cutting into the skin around the shoulders. The problems often increases with age because of weaker muscles and repetitive stress injuries, which is why most women who choose to do this procedure often are middle-aged or older.
The operation is performed under general anesthesia, which means you sleep and is painless during the procedure. After surgery, you will stay one night at the clinic. The first few days you will feel a tightness and a pull in the wounds but mild painkillers, such as Alvedon, will be enough for the actual pain.
You will get the medications you need to bring home with you. The stitches are removed after three weeks, and this is usually done at the clinic.
After surgery, you will usually get a scar around the areola, a vertical scar from the areola down to the breast fold and a horizontal scar in the breast fold. The scar hereby gets the shape of an anchor and is also called “anchor scar”. Usually the scars fade nicely and become small thin white lines.
This is a procedure that gives very satisfied patients.
