For many surgeons it has become the most popular way to perform breast reduction on a patient who is about a DD size. Very large and pendulous breast still require the more traditional methods that result in longer scars.Pre Operative Care: Inform us about any allergies, any serious medical condition(s), and all medications you are taking (both prescription and non-prescription) Avoid aspirin and aspirin-containing medicines for two weeks prior to surgery.
Duration of Operation: Around three hours
Hospital Admission: Two nights admission to the hospital.
Anesthesia: General anesthesia that renders the patient unconscious.Post - operative Care : After surgery, you will be wrapped in elastic bandages or gauze dressings and a surgicalbra. A small tube may be placed in each breast to drain blood and fluids for the first day or two. The extent of the post - operative swelling and bruising is dependent on whether you tend to bruise or swell easily. The amount you can expect varies for each individual but past surgeries or injuries should be a good indication.
The bandages will be removed a day or two after surgery, though you will continue wearing the surgical bra around the clock for several weeks, until the swelling and bruising subsides.
In most cases, stitches will be removed in one to three weeks. Sometimes the surgeon will use only dissolvable sutures. If breast skin is very dry following surgery, moisturizer can be applied several times a day, but the suture area must be kept dry at all times.
It is important to follow a careful plan on return to strenuous activity, in order to avoid tension on the wound (which could lead to worse scarring).
Results: Your surgeon will make every effort to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible. Still, it is important to remember that mastopexy scars are extensive and permanent. They often remain lumpy and red for months, then gradually become less obvious, sometimes eventually fading to thin white lines. Fortunately, the scars can usually be placed so that you can wear even low-cut tops
Recovery: The recovery takes one to two weeks. Most people are back to work within a week or two.Risks and Complications : All operations have some risks. The risks of surgery are divided into two groups; first, those that are seen in all operations and, second, those that are unique or special for a particular operation. In the first group, the main risks are swelling, bruising, bleeding, infection, a scar, and numbness or change in sensation. The main problem which is unique to this operation is damage to the blood supply of the nipple and a heavy scar. Breast reduction does NOT increase the risk of breast cancer and indeed may slightly decrease the risk. Price: includes 2 nights hospitalization, surgery fee, anesthesia fee, operation theater fee and routine medicine necessary for the procedure.
