Heavy breasts can be considered an aesthetic advantage, but excessively larger breasts may not be a breeze as it appears. One may be prevented from actively engaging in some physical activities by having heavier breasts, in addition to the pain one experiences, particularly in the back.

Breast reduction surgery, commonly referred to as reduction mammaplasty, removes extra tissue, skin, and fat from the breasts. A qualified plastic surgeon carries out this procedure to reduce overall breast size, alleviate discomfort, and achieve a breast size that is proportionate to the body.

In this blog, Dr. Parag Telang, the Best Plastic Surgeon in Dubai, explains what happens before and after breast reduction surgery. Read on for more insights.

Before and During the Surgery

The surgeon will evaluate the medical history and current health status during the initial consultation. He discusses the patient's expectations from the surgery, its benefits, and any risks involved and provides a detailed description of the procedure. The surgeon may ask one to take various lab tests, get a baseline mammogram, quit smoking for some time, and avoid certain medications.

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Depending on the preferences, the procedure involves incisions and liposuction to remove the excess fat from the breast. Generally, the surgeon makes an incision around the areola before removing the excess tissue from the breast. This is done to reshape and reposition the nipples. The incision scars will heal with time. Regardless of the procedure, the surgeon will try to achieve symmetry between both breasts. However, there is a sort of variation in breast size and shape.

After the Surgery

After the surgery, the breast will have a dressing or bandages. Under each arm, a tube will be inserted to help drain extra blood or fluid. Although one might feel soreness, pain, and discomfort, the surgeon will prescribe drugs to alleviate the feeling. Additionally, one might notice some swelling and bruise in the breasts, which is completely normal.

Additionally, one will probably notice their breasts becoming tender and more sensitive. The surgeon will ask the patient to reduce their physical activities and refrain from wearing certain styles of bras for a few months after the surgery. One will notice instant results post-surgery. However, the swelling takes a few months to heal completely.
