Breast reduction surgery
Some fat, skin and glands are removed during the surgery, not only breasts themselves are reduced, but also nipple areolae that are too large. Breast reduction can be performed by making a circular incision around the nipple, an inverted T shaped incision or an incision around the nipple together with a vertical incision to the breast fold. After the incision, the nipple is carefully relocated, and a new form of the breast is formed. Visible scars are left in the spots of incisions that fade away during the time.
After the breast reduction surgery bandages are applied, and the patient must wear special bra that supports breasts, for some time until the healing process is in progress. There is a slight ache, swelling, bloating and pain, which can be managed with medication. After this surgery you can return to work just in 1–2 weeks and begin work out in 1–2 months. Surgery results are long-term and visible right away.
After the surgery of breast reduction, the recovery process is slightly longer than after breast lifting surgery, therefore you must be aware it in advance that complete recovery will take several months.
