The Best Candidates for Breast Reduction

The ideal candidate for this type of procedure is someone who understands what this type of surgery entails. Having a deep understanding of this procedure includes learning about reduction techniques, risks, and what to expect post-surgery.

It's also vital for any breast reduction candidate to be in good overall health. In this case, being in good health means not having any underlying lung, heart, or neurological conditions.

Different Breast Reduction Techniques

T Inverted Incision (Anchor Scar)

This procedure gets its name from the T-shaped incision a breast surgeon makes down the middle of the chest and bottom of the breasts. A T-inverted incision is best for women with either moderate or severe sagging.

Vertical Breast Reduction (Lollipop Scar Reduction)

Another option for breast reduction is a vertical or lollipop procedure. With this method, the plastic surgeon makes two incisions. One of these incisions is around the areola, and the second incision runs from the bottom of the areola to the pleat underneath the breast.

Liposuction - Breast Reduction (Scarless Breast Reduction)

Liposuction breast reduction involves making a tiny scar that's a few millimeters in diameter. Because of the small incision, a liposuction breast reduction results in minimal scarring.

This surgical procedure is best for women who have larger breasts from fat accumulation instead of excess glandular tissue.

Breast Reduction Surgery - What to Expect

First, you'll need to schedule a consultation appointment. During this appointment, a surgeon will perform a physical exam to ensure you're a safe candidate for this type of surgery. If you're a good candidate for this procedure, a staff member will schedule your upcoming procedure.

Understandably, you will receive anesthesia before this procedure begins. Immediately after this procedure, a surgeon will place some type of dressing around your breasts. You may also have tubes attached that collect excess liquids.

You'll also likely receive both pain medication and antibiotics to decrease the risk of any kind of post-surgery infection. During this period, you'll also need to attend a follow-up appointment with your surgeon. This appointment allows your surgeon to remove your initial stitches and see how you're recovering.

Reduction Mammoplasty Recovery

Recovery time after a reduction surgery varies from person to person. Certain people can heal incredibly quickly after this type of surgery, while others take longer to recover fully.

One of the first recovery steps is having your stitches removed, which usually happens 5 to 10 days after your initial surgery.

For the next few weeks after your surgical procedure, expect to feel soreness in the chest area. It's also common to feel pulling sensations around your breasts. Some patients also experience something that feels like fluids moving inside the breasts, which dissipates over time.

Advantages of Breast Reduction Procedures

One of the main advantages of reducing the size of your breasts is experiencing less pain. Larger breasts can cause pain around your neck, back, and shoulders. By reducing the size of your breasts, you should start dealing with less pain.

Some people feel that their large breasts get in the way. By receiving a breast reduction, you'll have more petite boobs that aren't such a nuisance. Not dealing with this problem can make you much happier.
