About breast reduction

Whether you are experiencing back problems, feeling uncomfortable with your breasts, or simply think your breasts don't fit your physique, whatever your reason for wishing abreast reduction, Essential Aesthetics is there to help you. Breast reduction can be perfect solution if you are looking to have smaller or firmer breasts. There are different methods for breast reduction, one of which is also removing fat (liposuction) [add link]. Our surgeon will discuss the possibilities with you during a no-obligation consultation, so that the best result is achieved with as few scars as possible.

What happens during breast reduction surgery

This procedure takes place under general anaesthesia and lasts on average 2 hours. The surgeon makes an incision under the breasts and removes glandular and fatty tissue and skin. If necessary, the nipples are repositioned so that they fit the new shape of the breast. Usually two scars appear; in the fold under the breast and from the areola downwards (anchor scars).

The result

After the procedure, your smaller breasts will be wrapped in compressive bandages, so you won't immediately be able to see them. During the first period your breasts will be swollen. You will really notice the result after 6 months. The end result is attained in one year and by then the scars will have taken on the colour of your skin.

Recovery after a breast reduction

Your breasts will be firmly connected bandaged after the operation. The bandage can be removed after 48 hours. You will wear a special postoperative bra immediately after the operation. This bra looks like a sports bra and gives your breasts the support they need. Wear this bra for as long as necessary. Most patients experience a sensation of pressure on the chest. The pain is mostly not so bad and can be easily controlled with pain medication. Sometimes drains are inserted to drain wound fluid. For the first six weeks after surgery, it is not recommended to lift your arms higher than your shoulders or to lift things or exercise. After those 6 weeks, you can slowly start moving normally. Make sure however that your breasts remain well supported.
