If any of the following symptoms sound familiar, it could mean that a breast reduction and lift is for you:
Of all our cosmetic surgery operations, breast reductions have some of the highest satisfaction rates. Thousands of women have experienced revolutionary positive changes in their lives as a result, and there’s no reason you can’t as well. As always, the first step is an initial consultation session in which you’ll meet your surgeon, get answers to any and all questions, talk about how exactly you’d like your bust to look and find out more about the actual surgical process. The operation itself is conducted under general anaesthetic and usually takes about three hours, depending on the amount of tissue to be removed. There are three main types of breast reduction surgery, each of which is better in different situations.
Inverted-T mammoplasty is the most common method. It involves making three small cuts, one around the areola, a vertical one on the breast underside and a horizontal one around the natural below-breast crease. This has the advantages of offering great access to most breast tissue for a smoother and easier operation, while ensuring the incision scars remain unobtrusive. After making the incisions, breast tissue is removed and the skin is retightened around the new, smaller shape. The areola, which usually gets overly stretched in large breasts, is reduced in size and gets shifted to a higher and more natural position along with the nipple. Where necessary, liposuction is applied to the underarm area in order to improve skin contours and achieve a better look.
Vertical mammoplasties are similar to the triple incision method, but dispense with the horizontal incision. These achieve the same results with a simpler operation and less scarring. The downside is that it’s only suitable for moderately large breasts, and won’t work when the chest is too big.
Separating mammoplasties are used in those rare cases where breasts are extremely large. For these, the nipples and areolas need to be completely detached from their underlying tissue in order to achieve natural looking smaller breasts. This unavoidably results in a loss of nipple sensation and an inability to breastfeed. The good news is that the odds of you needing this method are extremely slim, and the other two techniques maintain full sensation and breastfeeding capabilities.
Overly large breasts cause a severe range of issues. They’re uncomfortable, painful, inconvenient and the source of a lot of chronic health problems. A lot of women endure these pains, but most will never seek treatment.
