The main reason for breast reduction is discomfort and, in some cases, severe pain because of the size.
Removal of the excess skin with glands is performing from typical incisions around the nipples areola with replacement of areola complex for upper position , vertical scar under the breast and horizontal line in breast folds.
I perform breast reduction procedure using different methods, adjust them to the individual expectations of the patient and their anatomical conditions. Depending on the type of surgery, the location of the scars is different. I discuss the choice of the method during consultations.
Before the surgery:
Basic blood tests: morphology, creatinine, blood coagulation index, prothrombin index, ecg (electrocardiogram), blood type
Type of anaesthesia: general
Recovery time: drains for 1-2 nights, wearing special post- surgery bra for 1-2 months, swelling and bruises persist for about 1-2 weeks, self-massaging on the scars after 4 weeks from the surgery, back to sport activities not earlier than after 4 weeks.
Scars: depends on the method.
Patient will stay overnight in the clinic after treatment.
