Very large breasts can cause pain, skin irritation on sub-pectoral folds, breathing problems, skeletal abnormalities, and reduced self-esteem. Breast reduction is usually performed to relieve the person from these problems. The procedure takes 2-4 hours and is performed under general anesthesia.
During surgery, the surgeon removes fat, mammary gland tissue, and excess skin, which results in smaller breasts, of less weight, which are in harmony with the body structure of the patient. At the end of surgery, a dressing is placed around the breasts, which is replaced the first postoperative day by a special bra that the patient will be wearing for a month.
The sutures are removed in about 10 days following the surgery. Patients may feel a mild pain immediately postoperatively, which is often described as discomfort, numbness or even bites. Also, there is often some swelling and bruising. The majority of women can return to their work approximately 14 days after the surgery, and should avoid weight lifting for 1 month.
