BREAST REDUCTION OR MAMMOPLASTY

Breast Reduction or Mammoplasty is a cosmetic surgical procedure to reduce the volume and weight of breasts.

Breast Reduction is also known by the name of Reduction Mammoplasty. Some women find that having breasts that are too large causes them to suffer from serious emotional distress and also very real health problems. Besides simply self esteem issues, a woman may endure discomfort, physical pain, neck ache and back ache due too large breast size. Women with breasts that are too large may struggle to keep up a physically active life. : The procedure involved in breast reduction include removing extra amount of breast tissue with an end goal in mind of attaining a final result of natural looking breasts that are well in proportion with the rest of the body frame.

Many factors may influence the size of breasts in women like genetic inheritance, hormones, pregnancies and body weight. Normally, breast size is proportionate to the body, but, in some women they may be excessively heavy causing discomfort. Problems associated with large breasts may range from neck pain, back ache, rashes under the breasts, grooves or weal on shoulders from bra straps, poor posture, infection to self-consciousness. Moreover, women with heavy breasts often complain that they aren’t comfortable wearing tight fitting fashionable clothes and find it difficult to participate in active sports. Breast reduction surgery can relieve these women of their discomfort by decreasing the weight and volume of their breasts to a desirable limit, thus, bringing back their lost confidence. Breast asymmetry can also be corrected by this surgery, if one breast is comparatively larger than the other.

The procedure involves reshaping the breasts by removing surplus fat and skin and repositioning of nipples, the final outcome being smaller uplifted, youthful and attractive looking breasts. Different techniques may be used to perform the surgery, depending upon the breast size and desired results, the most common being anchor shape or inverted T reduction, vertical pattern breast reduction and circumareolar reduction. However, every technique will leave a scar around the areola with vertical or inverted T shaped scar. Most patients find these scars very acceptable and are grateful for the improvement in their physical symptoms as well as shape and size of their breasts.

WILL THE RESULTS LAST?

The results are lasting as long as the operation is done at an age when your breasts will not grow anymore. The physical limitations, pain and discomforts experienced before the surgery will be relieved and your image and self-confidence will be boosted as a result of your enhanced proportionate figure. However, weight gain or pregnancy may increase the breast size, while weight loss can decrease it further. With age, even normal breasts tend to sag or droop and the same can be expected after a breast reduction surgery.

SURGERY OUTCOMES

Although the surgery will enhance your figure by reducing the size and improving the shape of your breasts, you’ll be left with scars. Mr Javaid will try to minimise the scars as far as possible. Generally the scars are hidden when you wear the bra. However, the marks will be noticeable when you are topless. Following the surgery the marks will be initially red and noticeable, which will fade after some months and become pale, soft, supple, thin and less visible. It should be noted that most women are unable to breast feed after the surgery, as such, young women should consider this fact before deciding to opt for the operation.

LIMITATIONS AND RISKS

A thorough discussion with the surgeon regarding the procedure and desired breast size is very essential beforehand. The desire to achieve a drastic reduction can compromise the aesthetic quality and appearance of breasts.

Other limitations:

  • - The surgery can restrict certain diagnostic processes.
  • - Most woman lose their ability to breastfeed post operation.
  • - It may instigate infections while nipple or breast piercing.
  • - Breasts can regrow if the procedure is performed at an age when the breasts are still growing.
  • - Pregnancy and weight gain can further increase the size of your breasts.

RISKS

Infection, bleeding, haematoma, seroma, changes or loss of breast or nipple sensation, either temporary or permanent, loss of nipple in extreme cases particularly in smokers, noticeable scars, breast asymmetry, irregularities in breast shape and contour, fat necrosis, persistent pain, dissatisfaction with overall aesthetic outcome and possibility of corrective surgery.

PRECAUTIONS BEFORE SURGERY

You should give up smoking as it interferes with the healing process. If overweight, reducing weight is important and you should avoid taking contraceptive pills at least six weeks prior to surgery.
