Breast Reduction Summary
This surgical procedure reduces overall breast size through the removal of breast tissue and skin. The breasts typically require reshaping by narrowing the width and elevating and reducing the size of the nipple areola complex. After removal of the necessary amounts of tissue and skin, the precisely placed incisions are closed. General anesthesia is typically given in breast reduction procedures, and Houston and Lake Jackson patients can expect the surgery to take between two to three hours to complete. This type of surgery is most often done on an outpatient basis. Liposuction may be performed in addition to breast reduction as a complementary procedure to shape the breast.
The incisions will typically be dressed with gauze following breast reduction surgery, and the breasts will need to be supported with a surgical bra that will need to be worn for six weeks. Sutures will usually dissolve gradually. Houston and Lake Jackson patients may experience some discomfort for the first several days following surgery, with minor aches lasting a couple weeks. In addition, bruising or swelling lasting up to three weeks is normal. Regular activities can resume within a couple of weeks, however, no exercise can be done for four to six weeks.
