What is Breast Reduction?
Breast reduction surgery is a procedure where skin and tissue from the breasts are removed to reshape and reduce the breasts' overall size. This surgery can also reduce the size of the dark skin surrounding the nipple, known as the areola. Patients decide to have breast reduction surgery for several reasons, including the desire to feel more comfortable, reducing the limitations that come with being large-breasted and altering their appearance. Gynecomastia, a condition causing enlarged breasts, can also be a problem for males, leading to the need for male breast reduction surgery.
How Much Does Breast Reduction Cost in Cleveland, OH?
The cost of your breast reduction is going to depend on the extent of the procedure needed to help you achieve your desired results. Dr. Husni will go over the details of your breast reduction including its overall cost during the time of your private consultation. At Neo Aesthetic Institute, we are happy to offer financing options that allow you the comfort and convenience of paying for your procedure at your leisure.
How do I Prepare for my Breast Reduction?
The first and most important step in preparing for your breast reduction is to discuss the operation with a doctor, who will explain the results, help clarify expectations, and explain the risks and recovery time associated with the procedure. Sometimes, certain lifestyle changes may need to be made prior to your breast reduction. Preparing for your breast reduction procedure may include the following:
- Cease smoking at least six weeks before the operation to help post-operative healing.
- Stay away from aspirin or any medications that may promote extra bleeding.
- Make the necessary accommodations wherever you are recovering so you will not be forced to move around excessively.
What Can I Expect During my Breast Reduction?
Hospitals and surgical centers are the most common places for breast reduction surgery to be performed. The surgery rarely requires an overnight stay, and it is generally completed in three to five hours. General anesthesia is most commonly used, however, IV sedation may be used upon request under the right conditions.
The removal of skin and tissue from the breast requires several incisions, carefully performed. The skin is closed with stitches after the breast reduction surgery is complete. In very rare cases, the nipple and areola must be removed and repositioned during the operation. Liposuction may be performed when most of the breast is composed of fatty tissue, and excess skin is not a problem.
What Can I Expect During my Breast Reduction Recovery?
When you wake up from the surgery, it is likely that you may feel slight breast pain for the first few days, followed by mild discomfort for a week. Pain medicine will provide relief. Gauze is placed over the incisions immediately following the surgery, and breasts are then either wrapped with an elastic bandage or supported with a special surgical bra. Wearing a surgical bra 24 hours a day may aid in a decrease of swelling while supporting the breasts as they heal.
A small tube may be inserted into each breast to aid in draining blood or fluid for the first few days that follow the surgery. Stitches generally dissolve in the incision sites and do not have to be removed. Your breasts may remain swollen and bruised for several weeks. Work and social activities may be resumed within a few weeks of the surgery with the exception of heavy lifting and strenuous exercise. Vigorous workouts and activities are most often avoided for at least the first two weeks that follow breast reduction. Scars will be present post-surgery but will be covered by a bra or swimsuit. While the scars will fade with time, they will not disappear completely.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Reduction?
Women who carry the weight of large, heavy breasts may endure neck and back pain that they wish to do away with. Other issues women with large breasts may experience include difficulty breathing, and/or numbness in parts of your breasts and upper chest due to excess breast weight. There are often physical limitations associated with carrying large, heavy breasts, as well. These may include participation in sports or other activities that may be painful or just plain awkward for women who have larger breasts. All of the issues listed above can be quickly fixed with breast reduction surgery, in most cases.
A major reason many women choose to have breast reduction surgery is to alter their appearance. Some women decide to have breast reduction surgery because their nipples and areolas point downward. Others choose to have this procedure to balance their breasts when one is noticeably larger than the other. Large breasts often appear to be disproportionate to height and weight for small or slender women, which can cause body image issues. Many large-breasted women feel self-conscious in swimsuits or other clothing because of the unwelcome attention that comes with having a larger chest. Finding clothes that fit well is also a common complaint that leads a woman to choose breast reduction.
If you experience any of the issues above and are in general good health, breast reduction with Dr. Husni may be right for you.
