Personalised one on one experience
A breast reduction procedure assists patients with large breasts. The procedure involves removing excess breast tissue to make the breast size more proportionate and manageable for the patient.
Is It For Me?
Bilateral breast reduction surgery is designed to decrease the amount of discomfort a person experiences when they have large breasts. This could be physical discomfort such as:
- Back, neck and shoulder pain
- Skin irritation due to sagging breasts
- Stretched skin
It could also alleviate mental discomfort, such as anxiety within your body due to your breast size.
Things to Consider
Dr Mistry recommends keeping the following things in mind before having the procedure done.
- Breast reduction surgery can affect breast development and breastfeeding. We advise to wait until after these milestones have been reached
- Smokers are more at risk of complications
- Infections are likelier if you have breast or nipple piercings.
However, if you are aware of the potential effects and you still desire to have the surgery done, consult with our Dr Mistry today.
Possible Risks and Complications
Large breast reduction is generally safe, but patients do have the risk of experiencing complications. These include:
- Allergic reactions to anaesthetics
- Uneven breasts
- Changes in nipple, skin and breast sensation
- Need for further surgery to treat complications and fix problems
- Swelling, bruising and skin discolouration
After Surgery Recovery
It is likely that after the procedure, you will need time off to rest and recover. Your recovery may include some of the following:
- Taking medications to aid healing
- Caring for yourself after surgery
- Post operative Care
- Taking time off normal exercise and activities
