Breast Reduction, also known as mammoplasty or boob reduction, reduces the size and weight of large & heavy breasts. Many women choose to undergo this procedure to help alleviate symptoms such as back, neck & shoulder pain, discomfort whilst exercising, & overall self confidence as clothes will also look and feel better. Led by world renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Jaffer Khan, your experience is tailored to suit your needs and outcomes.
Combining a breast reduction with a lift will benefit those patients with overly large and sagging breasts.
Many patients suffer from self consciousness due to the size of their breasts. Post breast reduction surgery, you will likely experience a boost in confidence.
Your breasts will be lifted and firmer post breast reduction, helping you achieve a more youthful look.
Many patients will find that they have more clothing options post breast reduction surgery. This is largely due to the fact that their body is more proportionate.
Increased Physical activity
You will no longer feel restrained and discomforted whilst engaging in exercise or sports. Breast reduction surgery means you no longer have added stress or weight on your body.
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.
Dr. Khan will go through any questions or concerns you may have about your procedure. He will also go through associated risks. During your in depth consultation, you will have the ability to see what your breast augmentation procedure results will look like with an advanced system called the Crisalix 3D Imaging software. The 3D image is created with a specialized camera. *There is no guarantee of specific outcomes so individual results and experiences can vary from person to person.
You must not smoke. Smoking can greatly impair your safety prior to surgery and your ability to heal following surgery.
Avoid aerobic exercise that may cause a lot of bounce. You may begin range of motion exercises but not with any weight, pressure or resistance of any kind.
Although breast reduction will lift the breasts slightly, those patients with overly large and sagging breasts do benefit from an additional breast lift in conjunction with their surgery.
You can continue to enjoy the results of your surgery for a lifetime. This is provided you maintain a stable weight and do not have anymore children.
It can take up to three months for your breasts to take their final shape and to see the final outcome of your breast reduction surgery.
