Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that removes fat, breast tissue, and excess skin from the breasts, resulting in more aesthetic and proportional breasts to the overall women’s body. In addition, it relieves physical discomfort due to overly large breasts causing back, neck, and shoulder pain and also causing shoulder grooves and discomfort while exercising or performing strenuous activities. Breast reduction surgery benefits patients in three ways— physical, aesthetic, and psychological. Reduction mammoplasty can be performed at any age but preferably when breasts stop developing, usually by the age of 16 or 18.
The goal of breast reduction surgery is to reduce, reshape, and resize breasts proportionally to suit the rest of your body, reducing physical discomfort caused by it. Dr Tahir would explain to you the appropriate benefits and limitations( almost negligible) of breast reduction surgery in Dubai.
You can consider breast reduction in the following cases:
Apart from imposing physical and physiological implications due to its appearance, heavy breasts can cause the following problems also:
Like every other surgery, breast reduction too has some limitations, which Dr Tahir will explain in detail before planning the surgery. Some common benefits and limitations to breast reduction surgery in Dubai are discussed below as follows:
Dr Adnan will be happy to discuss whether this procedure is right for you and how it could transform your life in an initial consultation.
The surgeon will check your candidature on the following basis:
However, the surgeon may ask to prevent you from surgeries if you have the following conditions:
If you are planning to have children in the short run, it would be preferable to wait until you are done with having children, as pregnancy and breastfeeding can interfere with results (size and appearance).
The plastic surgeon will select the appropriate incision method that produces the best results while leaving the least amount of scarring. The scar takes a few months for complete recovery. However, some breast reduction methods may not create a scar. The breast reduction method includes:
LIPOSUCTION: In some cases, a breast reduction can be accomplished solely through liposuction, leaving virtually undetectable scars – this option is best for patients who only want a slight reduction in breast size, have good skin elasticity, and do not have sagging breasts. This procedure removes only excess fat, not breast tissue vertical or lollipop :
THE VERTICAL OR LOLLIPOP INCISION: A scar comprises two incisions: one around the edge of the areola and one vertical from the lower areola edge to the inframammary fold. This procedure is appropriate for women who require a moderate breast reduction and lift.
INVERTED T OR ANCHOR: An inverted or anchor scar is created by making three incisions: around the areola’s edge, one between the lower areola and the inframammary fold, and one along the inframammary fold (smaller or bigger depending on each particular case). The inverted T, also known as the Anchor, is a more invasive technique that allows for more tissue removal and reshaping. This procedure is best for women who require a significant amount of breast reduction and reshaping.
If you seek breast reduction surgery in Dubai, the surgeon will explain to you the breast reduction scope and corrections possible in conjugation to breast reduction surgery. The breast reduction surgery will include:
Breast Reduction and Lift in One Procedure
Women who want to reduce their breasts size and look appealing should consider breast reduction surgery. However, breast sagging may arise due to breast reduction; that can be compensated with a breast lift. A lift is included in all reductions performed through Vertical or Inverted T incisions.
Areolas That Have Been Expanded
With a breast reduction, you can shrink the size of your areolas. So, the surgeon will reshape the areola to the appropriate shape after breast reduction.
Overall Size Reduction
This is the major goal of breast reduction, i.e. attaining the appropriate size, firmness, symmetry, and overall breast’s appearance with no flabby skin hanging out of the breasts.
When you consult Dr Tahir for the first time for breast reduction, he shall examine your breasts and suggest you realistic expectations that can be achieved with surgery. In addition, the surgeon will consider the following factors for drafting a surgery plan.
Dr Adnan Tahir will advise you on an approximate size possible after a thorough examination of your physical characteristics and desires.
Breast reduction recovery, like any surgery, takes time, and the better you prepare for it, the easier it will be. Therefore,it is critical to understand what to expect to plan your life duties (work, kids, home duties, social events, etc.) accordingly. The appearance of breast reduction scars will be determined by the size of your breasts and the amount of reduction you desire.
The recovery can be factored into the following timelines.
IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE SURGERY
Breast lift surgery is usually done under general anaesthesia, and the patient is discharged the next day. You will feel tired, sleepy, and possibly dizzy when you wake up from anaesthesia. Swelling and pressure will also be felt in the chest area, especially when you breathe deeply. You are strictly recommended to avoid driving home and arrange for pick-up back to home.
THE FIRST THREE DAYS
Breast reduction recovery can be painful for the first 48 hours, so it’s best to take the pain relievers prescribed by your doctor. You must rest completely for the first 24 hours before getting up and showering the next day. We recommend resting at home for the first three days. The drainage tubes will be in place for about 24 to 48 hours before being removed at your first appointment.
AFTER A WEEK
After three days, most patients can resume simple activities. After a week, you may be able to engage in other activities such as driving, short walks, dropping children off at school, evening parties, and lighthouse cleaning.
AFTER TWO WEEKS
You can return to work (avoiding exertion) and start with a light gyming. If you’re healing normally, you can also go swimming (covering the scars). Then, around ten days after surgery, the stitches are removed.
AFTER FOUR WEEKS
You can resume your pre-surgery lifestyle, including intense physical activities, the use of normal bras, and sleeping on your stomach. However, if pressed, the scars may still be slightly tender.
AFTER THREE MONTHS
After 3 to 6 months, the final result of a breast reduction surgery is expected as the shape and position of the breasts settle.
AFTER TWELVE MONTHS
Scars are permanent, but they fade over time, usually between 12 and 18 months.
Breast reduction makes a significant difference in a woman’s life. The following are some of the advantages of having a reduction mammoplasty:
APPEARANCE: Smaller breasts give a woman a more proportional and natural appearance, boosting confidence and self-esteem. Most women start wearing clothes they didn’t wear before surgery (t-shirts and smaller tops).
COMFORT: Improvements in posture, head, back, and neck pain, skin irritation, and other conditions associated with having excessively large breasts. Breast reduction improves or eliminates these symptoms in the majority of cases.
QUALITY OF LIFE: Excessively large and heavy breasts can make it difficult to engage in certain activities, such as exercising. Having lighter, more proportional breasts will improve your ability to perform certain activities and your overall quality of life.
