Information about Breast Reduction
The main objective of the breast reduction surgery, is to make the breast smaller and lift it. Because it's used to relieve symptoms of back pain, neck pain, breast pain and other problems associated with having large breasts, it is considered a reconstructive surgery.
The surgeon draws on the skin the place where your nipples will be located. Then he performs an incision around each one of the areolas. If the areola is too large, the incision may be done inside its outline, so as to remove the part of it that is nearest to the edge. The areola and the nipple are kept joined to the breast by means of a pedicle. This is an important aspect in order to preserve the blood supply and sensibility, and to avoid necrosis. To separate the rest of the skin, the surgeon performs a series of incisions under the areolas. After that, the surgeon cuts and folds the glandular tissue so as to fit the areolas in the places previously marked. He then cuts and removes the excess glandular tissue and skin until the breast reaches the desired volume and shape. In order to finalize, the surgeon sutures all the incisions.
Hospitalization: The patient will have to stay hospitalized for one night.
