Macromastia is a condition characterized by large breasts. Women with macromastia can seek breast reduction surgery if they are unhappy with their breast size or are experiencing symptoms of discomfort. Symptoms can include back pain, bra shoulder grooving, rashes under the breast, and discomfort while exercising. Breast reduction surgery reduces the size of the breast; during the procedure, the size of the areola is also reduced, and the nipple is placed in a more youthful position.
What is breast reduction?
Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that removes extra tissues from the breast. In some cases, the surgeon may also reposition the nipples in a more youthful position. If you have large breasts that cause body pains, backaches, neck pain, and discomfort during exercise, you might consider undergoing breast reduction to relieve these symptoms.
What is the recovery process
after breast reduction?
How you recover in the three months after your surgery determines the outcome for years to come. Dr. Vial will provide a list of step-by-step recovery guidelines after your surgery. Your breasts will be wrapped in bandages and compression garments after the surgery to reduce swelling. Forty-eight hours after surgery you can remove your dressings and shower. Often, no bra is needed. The swelling and bruising will gradually dissipate after 1-2 weeks.
