What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Are you feeling self-conscious and experiencing discomfort due to the size and weight of your breasts?

If so, consider breast reduction surgery at Eternelle Aesthetics in Hyderabad, where you’ll find top female plastic surgeons who can provide the best solution for you.

Having oversized, saggy, and heavy breasts can lead to various physical and psychological side effects. Individuals in such situations may experience skin rashes, shoulder pain, and even chronic neck and back pain. Moreover, large breasts often cause feelings of shame and awkwardness.

So, what can help?

Breast reduction surgery or Reduction Mammoplasty is a highly individualised, major operation done to subsequently reshape and elevate the breasts to create a more proportionate, smaller bust size. In this surgery the excess breast tissue, fat and skin is removed, and it assists to bring the breasts into better proportion with the rest of the body.

This surgery is performed by the Best Plastic Surgeon in Hyderabad at Eternelle Aesthetics, a fully equipped ambulatory surgical clinic and centre.


Breast Reduction Procedure

Before commencing with the surgery, the patient’s vitals are checked and then the anaesthesiologist provides general anaesthesia. Next, the Breast Cosmetic Surgeon in Hyderabad makes final markings on the patient’s breasts to determine what newly operated breasts would look like in terms of size and position.

Once the anaesthesia shows its effect and the patient lies asleep, the surgeon begins the surgery. Breast reduction surgery procedure involves the following steps:

  1. Making of incision– During breast reduction surgery, an incision is carefully created by the surgeon to suit the specific type of procedure being performed and the individual condition of the breasts. The surgeon has two options for incision patterns: the keyhole incision and the loophole incision.
  2. Removal of excess breast tissues and skin– Through the incision, the surgeon puts inside a cannula to dislodge and eliminate stubborn, unwanted fat cells from the breasts. This is known as liposuction. The surgeon goes for an excision of excess skin and glandular tissues if sagging is caused by excess skin and glandular tissues.
  3. Nipples repositioning– Nipple repositioning is an integral part of breast reduction surgery in Hyderabad. While performing the procedure, the surgeon ensures that the nipples maintain their blood supply and nerve connections. However, they are strategically repositioned based on preoperative markings. 
    Typically, the nipples are relocated to align approximately with the midpoint between the arm and the breast folds. In cases where the breasts are significantly enlarged, the surgeon may opt to completely remove the patient’s nipple and areola and relocate them to a higher position on the breasts. This careful redesigning of the nipples contributes to achieving a desired aesthetic outcome.  
  4. Closing of incisions– After all removal and repositioning are over, the surgeon closes the incisions using dissolvable sutures, surgical tapes, or skin adhesives. To drain out extra fluids and blood after surgery, the surgeon places drainage tubes at incision sites. Lastly, the surgeon applies a light dressing (using gauze or a bandage) on the suture lines.

Who are Suitable Candidates for Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery is considered by anyone bothered to have enlarged breasts that are not in proportion with the rest of their body. Women may opt for breast reduction surgery to improve their overall appearance and regain their confidence or simply to get relief from back, shoulder, or neck pain associated with large, heavy breasts to enjoy their physical activities.

Moreover, they may undertake breast reduction if suffering from shoulder indentations resulting from their bra straps and/or experiencing skin irritation under their breast crease.

However, those seeking breast reduction must be:

  • Females who are healthy
  • Who want to enhanced breast profile
  • Non-smokers
  • Non-pregnant women
  • Non-breastfeeding mothers
  • Having a positive outlook and specific goals in mind concerning their surgery.

Preparing for Breast Reduction or Pre-Surgery Advice

Before going ahead with Breast reduction surgery, the patients need to follow some surgeon’s instructions. The patient also needs to meet our surgical team to discuss the procedure and what it entails. These include:

  • Get a thorough physical examination of the breast, a breast mammogram, and lab testing done
  • Go for breast imaging studies depending upon age and personal or family history
  • Get home ready with things needed during the recovery period such as ice packs, gauze, clean towels, loose/comfortable, buttoned tops, and prescribed ointments for incision sites.
  • Arrange for someone to drive home post-operation and even to stay and take care for at least the first night.
  • Quit smoking or stop smoking at least 6 weeks before the day of the surgery.  
  • Avoid heavy alcohol consumption and even drug abuse
  • Avoid complete filling of the stomach a night before the surgery or 6 hours prior to the procedure. Up to 2 hours before the surgery, it’s allowed to have small sips of water, black tea, or black coffee.
  • Avoid intake of blood thinners and anti-inflammatory medications.

Recovering After Breast Reduction Surgery

The patient will need someone to assist them for the first 24 hours after the procedure. As the patient recovers from surgery, their breasts will feel sore and swollen; and this will disappear over time. The patient must also refrain from bending, lifting, or straining, which can affect healing.

Post-Operative Care 
  • Do not expose the operated breasts to direct sunlight for 2-4 weeks. Apply sunblock or cover the breasts properly if stepping out in the daytime to prevent the darkening of the surgical scars.
  • Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet, preferably more of a protein-rich diet to allow fast recovery.
  • Avoid wearing tight-fitted tops or tops made with uncomfortable fabric. Wear front opening, loose, comfortable tops.
  • Wear a proper-fitted, elastic compression bra for at least 6 weeks after surgery, and for the same period avoid any vigorous physical activities that focus on upper body workouts.
  • Take painkillers and antibiotics as prescribed by the doctor.
  • Schedule a visit to the surgeon or the surgical care team after 1 week of the surgery to check on the progress of recovery.

FAQs about Breast Reduction Surgery

1. Can I breastfeed after my Breast Reduction?

It may be more difficult for some patients to breastfeed after Breast Reduction Surgery. That’s because the surgeon may remove the glandular tissues and ducts that carry breast milk to the nipples for nursing the child.

2. Is Breast Reduction painful?

Breast Reduction Surgery is not painful as the patient is provided with anaesthesia to ensure comfort throughout the surgery. However, after an operation, the patient might feel sore for 2-3 days. The patient can apply ice packs to reduce pain or swelling and take painkillers. Still, if pain or discomfort persists for more than a few days, schedule a follow-up visit to the surgeon.

3. How long will the procedure for Breast Reduction be?

Typically, breast reduction surgery gets over in 3-5 hours. Depending upon the patient’s condition, he or she will be asked to stay in the hospital for a few hours or discharged just after the surgery.

4. How long is the Breast Reduction recovery?

There is no definite recovery time for every patient who has undergone breast reduction surgery. The recovery timeline of it is as such:

  • Week 1– There is some swelling, pain, and bruising so the patients are advised to restrict their physical activity.
  • Week 2 to 3– The patients start feeling much better and can return to their job that does not involve labour work.
  • Week 4 to 5– The patients are asked to continue being gentle with their breasts, wear support bras, and increase their physical activities.
  • Week 6 and beyond– The patients still need to self-examine their breasts, schedule routine mammograms, and then discuss scar optimization with the surgeon and when allowed resume their normal routine.

5. Is Breast reduction risky?

Just like any other surgery, Breast Reduction surgery also carries the risk of complications that usually are small or rare if performed by experienced, skilled surgeons. The potential surgical complications are:

The breasts of women change in shape and size during and after breast reduction surgery. Following the surgery, women may not be able to breastfeed their children. So, it’s better to consult the surgeon to know the possibilities of breast reduction before or after pregnancy.

7. What kind of Bra should I wear after undergoing Breast Reduction surgery?

For the first two weeks, 24/7 you should wear a surgical bra as given by the surgeon. After 14 days of the surgery, schedule a follow-up appointment with the surgeon to know when to replace the surgical bra with some support garment and finally a traditional bra. Commonly, the surgeon advises patients to avoid underwire bras for three complete months following their breast reduction surgery.
