Welcome to Egemed Hospital, a trusted provider of comprehensive plastic surgery services. We take pride in offering breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammoplasty, to help women achieve enhanced comfort and improved breast appearance. In this article, we will explore breast reduction surgery, including the ideal candidates, the relationship with breast cancer, the possibility of breastfeeding after the procedure, scarring, recovery process, pain management, risks, size reduction, combination surgeries, pricing, and the psychological benefits associated with the surgery.
Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction surgery at Egemed Hospital is a specialized procedure designed to alleviate the physical discomfort caused by overly large breasts and enhance the overall appearance. Our experienced surgeons skillfully remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a more proportionate breast size that complements the patient’s body frame.
Ideal Candidates for Breast Reduction Surgery
Egemed Hospital recommends breast reduction surgery for individuals experiencing physical and emotional distress due to excessively large breasts. Common concerns include chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain, skin irritation, difficulty finding well-fitting bras and clothing, and self-consciousness about breast size. Ideal candidates should be in good general health and have realistic expectations about the results of the surgery.
Breast Reduction Surgery and Breast Cancer
There is no direct relationship between breast reduction surgery and breast cancer. However, breast reduction surgery can make it easier to detect potential abnormalities during breast self-examination or mammograms due to the removal of breast tissue. It is crucial for all individuals, including those who had breast reduction surgery, to continue with regular breast cancer screening and mammograms as advised by their healthcare provider.
Breastfeeding After Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction surgery may impact breastfeeding ability, depending on the surgical technique used. While some techniques preserve more breast tissue and the ability to breastfeed, others may reduce this possibility. For patients concerned about future breastfeeding, Egemed Hospital recommends discussing this with the surgeon during the consultation.
Scarring After Breast Reduction Surgery
Scarring is an inevitable part of breast reduction surgery. At Egemed Hospital, our skilled surgeons place incisions strategically to minimize visible scarring. Incisions are often made around the areola and vertically down the breast. Over time, scars usually fade and become less noticeable.
Recovery Process and Pain Management
Recovery after breast reduction surgery varies among individuals. Patients can expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising immediately following the procedure. Wearing a supportive surgical bra during the initial healing period is essential. While some pain and soreness are common, Egemed Hospital provides pain medication to manage any post-operative discomfort effectively.
Risks of Breast Reduction Surgery
As with any surgical procedure, breast reduction surgery carries some risks. Potential complications include infection, bleeding, adverse reactions to anesthesia, scarring issues, changes in nipple sensitivity, and asymmetry. Egemed Hospital prioritizes patient safety and takes stringent measures to minimize the risk of complications.
Breast Size Reduction
The amount of breast size reduction can vary based on the patient’s individual needs and desired outcome. At Egemed Hospital, our surgeons aim to achieve a more proportionate breast size that aligns with the patient’s body frame while addressing specific concerns.
Breast reduction surgery can be combined with other procedures, such as breast lift or liposuction, to achieve the desired result. The combination of surgeries can be discussed with the surgeon during the consultation, based on the individual’s needs and safety considerations.
Pricing of Breast Reduction Surgery
The cost of breast reduction surgery can vary depending on factors such as the surgeon’s experience, geographic location, the complexity of the procedure, and the surgical facility. Egemed Hospital provides detailed cost estimates during the consultation, including all associated fees.
Psychological Benefits of Breast Reduction
In addition to the physical benefits of reducing discomfort, breast reduction surgery at Egemed Hospital can have significant psychological benefits. Patients often experience increased self-esteem and confidence, improved body image, and relief from emotional distress associated with overly large breasts. The surgery can enhance overall well-being and quality of life for those struggling with the physical and emotional burdens of large breasts.
