Reduction Mammaplasty is the surgery performed for women who are having heavy and large breas-Ts (as per body proportion) and are experiencing discomfort and symptoms related to that like back and neck pain, skin rashes, redness, and itching. Reduction mammaplasty surgery brings about a reduction in breas-T size as well as making it more attractive and symmetrical. It overall brings motivation for an active lifestyle.
Skin markings are done on the breas-T before taking the patient to OT as the position of breas-T changes while lying down. General anesthesia is given. We give the local block to the breas-T tissue so that there will be less pain in the post-procedure period. The procedure usually takes 3-5 hours. Drains are kept for a day or two.
A breas-T that is lifted, rounded, appropriate for body proportion can be seen immediately. The final results will take around 6 months.
Reduction mammaplasty is usually sought by the females after completing their family size. But the procedure is also performed in the females who are unmarried or going for marriage but having heavy breas-Ts. Patients are usually able to feed, but in addition, some amount of top feed will be required.
The advantages of surgical procedure overweigh the presence of scars, in our experience patient feels so much self-confident and lifted that they have never complained about the scars. Scars that are prominent at the start do settle to a fine line with time. Circumareolar scars are not visible, and scars that are in the inframammary fold are also hidden, the scars along the vertical axis are visible but usually fade with time.
