WHAT IS A BREAST REDUCTION?
BREAST REDUCTION DUBAI | 14 March 2022
Breast reduction is a cosmetic procedure to remove excess fat and skin from the breasts making them smaller, better shaped and more uplifted.
There are several different surgical procedures for breast reduction. Excess skin and fat is removed. Your breasts are reshaped and the nipples are repositioned. All procedures result in a scar around the areola (dark area around the nipple) and each method results in additional scarring. Your surgeon will discuss each procedure with you and together you will decide which is best in your particular case. Breast reduction can also be used to correct asymmetry (imbalance) of your breasts.
Patients are usually required to stay in hospital one to two nights. You will have dressings on your breasts and there may be drains (plastic tubes). The drains are usually removed before you leave hospital.
You will be given post-operative pain killers and instructions regarding your dressings and any stitches you may have.
Most patients are mobile from day one and return to normal activities within six weeks. However everyone heals differently. Be sure and discuss your return to work with your surgeon.
The results of breast reduction improve gradually over time. Your breasts should become softer and more natural as the healing continues.
