BREAST REDUCTION

Breast reduction surgery is sometimes the answer for ladies with large breasts who visit my offices complaining of medical problems caused by the excessive weight of their breasts. These problems can vary from chronic neck and back pains to respiratory difficulties and severe skin irritations. Most of these patients also experience psychological problems, and some find that the size of their breasts affect many of their normal activities in life. Teenagers with large breasts often feel extremely self-conscious.

Breast reduction surgery, or mammoplasty, is designed to vastly improve the quality of these patients' lives, and I find this operation one of the most gratifying cosmetic surgery procedures.

Breast reduction in South Africa is performed under general anaesthetic, with a projected initial recovery period of 12 days. Most patients are extremely happy with the results after years of back and neck strain from cumbersome breasts. They also reportedly find it easier to find clothing that fits once their breast size is more in proportion to their overall body shape.

The most common reduction procedure involves making three incisions on each breast – one around the areola, another from the areola to the under the breast and a third along the crease of the breast. Fat, tissue and skin is then removed and the nipple and areola are repositioned as required. Excess skin that has been stretched is also removed. The vertical mastopexy (also known as the lollipop technique), however, is my preferred technique in most breast reductions - although it is restricted to more moderately oversized breasts.

Drainage tubes may be inserted temporarily. You will need to ease very slowly back into your regular routine, taking plenty of time to recuperate before putting strain or pressure onto your upper body.

The results of this procedure are permanent. To find out more about breast reduction cost or other general breast reduction questions, contact us today.
