Women with excessive breast development (above 17 years) who have problems I have described above are eligible for this surgery. You should share with your doctor if you are pregnant, overweight or giving weight. All of this can affect the results of the surgery.
In this surgery, your breasts are made littler, shaped and lifted to create a more aesthetic breast shape. During this time, nipple areolar complex is moved up for lifting. The surgery usually takes 2.5 – 3 hours. When doing this, fine linear incision marks may remain on the skin to remove excess skin and breast tissue. Depending on the technique, incision may be a lollipop like or anchor shape. The choice of breast reduction surgery is quite complex technical and determined by your breast size, skin quality and the preferences of your surgeon. All of these incision marks are under the bikini.
Aspirin, coumadin and similar blood thinners should not be used before surgery. Before the surgery women who are under 40 years, should have breast ultrasound and over 40 years of age should have mammography.
