The procedure efficiently changes the size, weight, firmness, and shape of the breast. This surgery can eliminate many problems such as skin irritations, neck and back pain, posture problems, etc., arising because of the heavy breasts. The surgery can alter the appearance of the person as disproportionate breast can be embarrassing.
Steps to take before the procedure
Your doctor will physically examine your breasts and will run a few tests such as X-ray, lung test, echo test, blood tests, and urine test, to assess your condition. Mammography is also done. You need to inform your doctor about your routine medicines. Your diet will also be monitored before the surgery. Usually, you cannot eat or drink for few hours, before the surgery. It is also important to discuss with your doctor, about your expectations. Talk about your appearance post-surgery.
What happens during the procedure?
You will be given local or general anaesthesia. A surgical cut will be made around the areola (the pigmented area of your nipple), to the underside of your breasts. The fatty tissue and skin will be removed. Sometimes, your nipple and areola will be detached from your breasts, during the surgery. In that case, at the end of the procedure, your nipple will be repositioned. A surgical bandage will be used on your breasts. The excess blood will be removed, by placing a tube under your arms.
After the procedure
Post-surgery your doctor may prescribe you a few painkillers and antibiotics to relieve pain and reduce the risk of infection. Your breasts will be sensitive, swollen, or bruised, for the next few days. You will be required to wear a soft bra, and not exert the breast portion. Scarring will go away with time.
