Once the breast reduction surgery is performed, you can expect to feel considerable soreness in the breast area.

You will have to wear a surgical/sports bra in order to provide the needed support to the breasts post­surgery. As with any surgical procedure, it is recommended to avoid heavy exercise or any strenuous activities that may involve the breast muscle. You should refrain from lifting, pulling or pushing anything that causes pain and limit strenuous activity or upper body twisting if this causes discomfort.

Many patients feel ready to return to a desk job within 1 week, once they are no longer reliant on pain medication.(Every patient is a unique individual and every surgery has unique aspects. Therefore no two procedures or rejuvenation treatments will get the exact same results. Individual results vary from patient to patient.)



Scars will continue to refine & will vary amongst patients depending on their natural healing process & location of incisions. Scars are generally refined to fine incision lines one year after surgery.



You will likely feel considerable soreness and tightness in the beginning, which can be relieved with pain medication.


What is Breast Reduction or Reduction Mammoplasty?

Reduction Mammoplasty, also known as breast reduction or boob reduction, is a surgical procedure that aims to bring about symmetrical and proportional changes to a person’s breasts. Simply put, this is a surgery for those who wish to have their breast size reduced or have symmetrical changes made to their breasts.

Why Opt for Breast Reduction?

Men or women with large breasts not only face difficulties with respect to their appearance but it also causes insufferable pain in their necks, backs and shoulders. Moreover, they can also experience soreness underneath their breasts, whereby it becomes more than just a physical restriction in their movement. 

That is why boob reduction procedures amount to more than just physical appearance needs. While it also grants a boost in confidence and improves the self-image a person has, it’s also done for medical reasons. 


How Painful is Breast Reduction?

Whether you’re an outpatient or an inpatient, you’ll be under an anaesthetic that will numb you before the pain. Thereby, making reduction mammoplasty an effectively painless procedure.

However, the first week of recovery from the procedure will be a little uncomfortable as your body rehabilitates itself with the new contours. Once you’re done with the breast or lollipop reduction process, you will be sent home with prescription meds for the pain. 


Who is a Good Breast Reduction Candidate?

An ideal candidate for breast reduction someone who:

  • Doesn’t smoke
  • Is at their ideal weight but still faces appearance issues due to excess of fat
  • Is non-diabetic and not pregnant
  • Is not a breast-feeding woman or has plans to breast-feed in the future


What are the Types of Breast Reduction?

There are three types of breast reduction surgeries.

  • Inverted-T Type Reduction (also known as Anchor Type)
  • Vertical Type Reduction (also famous for its variation, Lejour Technique)
  • Periareolar Reduction Type

Depending upon your case, your surgeon will decide which type will procure the best results.

How much does Breast Reduction Cost?

A breast reduction procedure can have variable costs that are determined by the following factors:

  • The type of reduction surgery
  • The surgeon, their expertise and the clinic they’re operating in
  • The location and market competitivity 

While it is possible for you to find cheaper variations of the procedure, it’s recommended to have the best surgeon conduct your surgery. The results can vary with the experience of the surgeon and with a permanently invasive procedure such as reduction mammoplasty, you’d not want to take the chance.

Is Breast Reduction Permanent?

Reduction mammoplasty is a lasting procedure that produces permanent results. However, it doesn’t mean that your breasts will stay that way forever. If you put on weight, your breasts might become fuller and saggy. For women, the situation can become different if they have a baby.

What are Breast Reduction Risks and Complications?

Apart from allergic reactions, chest infections and blood clots resulting from risks associated with anaesthesia, there are no new risks in breast reduction surgery. Like all others, this procedure also presents complications if there are undisclosed medical histories that the surgeon isn’t aware of, errors made by the surgeon, or bad quality of the equipment or procedure itself.

Having established that, some of the most common unwanted effects and risks of the surgery include:

  • Scars
  • Nipple sensitivity
  • Unable to breastfeed (It’s almost certain that you won’t be able to breastfeed after this procedure)
  • Wound Drain (For maximum 2 days, a drain is inserted in your breasts to clean out blood and fluids)

What should you ask the Breast Reduction Surgeon?

Firstly, discuss all your medical history with every detail, regardless of how minute it may seem. Discuss the permanent effects such as the chances of not being able to breastfeed.

After they have done their assessment, ask them about the type of procedure they’ll go for. You’ll be able to get an idea of the time that it will take to get done with the procedure. Moreover, ascertain that your medical condition will not complicate the procedure.

Breast Reduction Recovery & Follow-up

While the initial surgery is 2-3 hours long, you will have to stay in the hospital for another day for observation. Under medical supervision, the doctors will make sure there are no complications that will arise in the near or distant future. If there are adjustments to be made, they can make them then and there. You’ll have prescribed medications for pain before you are sent home.

Once home, you’ll have to avoid physical activities for at least 2 weeks. The pain will gradually subside but keep redressing the wounds on a regular basis. You can go back to work in 3-4 weeks, if it’s a desk job without any physical exertion involved. You might feel exhausted at the end of your working days in the initial stages. Your stamina will rehabilitate itself gradually. The swelling that might occur should go away in a maximum of 3-months’ time.

You can contact your surgeon anytime during your recovery period if you have any questions or emergencies. They will keep you updated on your scheduled visits for check-ups.

Breast Reduction Results – What Can You Expect?

You can expect your breast size to be reduced and have symmetrical changes to last for long, along with scarring that can last for a while as well. However, if you have unrealistic expectations of a celebrity look, it’d be best to have an overview of the results of the surgeries the surgeon has performed in the past.

After the pain has subsided and the swelling is gone, patients report feeling satisfied with the resulting contours.


Does a Breast Reduction Make You Look Thinner?

Breast reduction is not an alternative to weight-reduction and should not be considered as a way to look thinner. If you gain weight after the surgery, your breasts will become fuller and saggy again. The same is the case for women who get pregnant. The surgery won’t stop the natural growth of the body.

While the process will result in a thinner and aesthetically pleasing look, it’s not going to involve contouring your abdomen, hips, thighs, belly fat or neck fat.
