Breast Reduction

Why Do Women Need Breast Reduction Surgery?

It is vital for any woman to feel comfortable with her body. Because this isn’t a reality for every woman, there are many physical, emotional and psychological issues that can arise from something like having breasts, which are too large.

Patients can suffer from neck pain, back and shoulder pain, or there can be skin issues under the breasts as well as sleeping problems. All these are physical, in occurrence, and these will affect joining in certain sports, or wearing some kinds of clothes.

No matter what the issue, there will be a major dent in self-confidence.

Before Breast Reduction Surgery

No two women are alike, so Dr. Z will conduct a consultation with each patient to find the underlying problems and issues they face. Not only this, but he will need to know about a patient’s medical history to make sure they are a suitable candidate to proceed with the procedure.

Lastly, Dr. Zuriarrain needs to discuss with the patient to know the amount of breast reduction or mammoplasty they seek to feel comfortable. The doctor will make his own recommendations once a thorough physical is made, and he can determine what size of breasts will balance with the patient’s body to achieve the ideal results.

Patients will learn where the incisions will be, and what levels of scarring are likely to happen once the healing stage is reached.

During Breast Reduction Procedure

There may be a couple of processes during breast reduction. There will be incisions made while the patient is under general anesthesia. Depending on the size and reason for the breasts being large, there may be liposuction used as a secondary means of removing excess fat deposits. Skin and glandular tissues will be removed by other means at the hands of Dr. Zuriarrain.

The techniques used will be based on the initial consultation, and what the desired results should be. Once all the tissues are removed to reach the desired size, the reduction will end with the nipple and areola being sighted in a natural position.

Breast reduction is a very personal issue, and patients do need to be aware of the risks involved. However, most are willing to undergo this procedure to gain their self-confidence and to end the suffering many of them face.

Dr. Zuriarrain will discuss all these in detail, but patients are in the best hands for this procedure. Some of the risks and complications can include

  • Undesirable scarring
  • Bleeding or infection
  • Deprived sensations in breasts or nipples
  • Asymmetry of the breasts
  • Accumulation of fluids
  • Possible inability for breastfeeding
  • Deep vein thrombosis
  • Chances of revision surgery required

After Breast Reduction Surgery

Once the surgery is over, patients are likely to feel tired, and sore. Depending on the degree of surgery, this discomfort can last a few days, and can be managed with subscribed painkillers.

Dr. Zuriarrain will explain how to recover, and patients should not undertake any strenuous activities. There will be dressings and bandages and an elastic support bra can be used to ease pressure. On occasions, thin tubes may be inserted to drain excess fluid.

Many patients can return to routine activities after one week as long as they take things steady.

With a more welcome breast size, many women find their self-confidence returns, and they can now wear as they wish and take part in the activities they were unable to before without any aches and pains.
