Breast Reduction Mexico
Reduction mammaplasty or breast reduction is extremely satisfying amongst patients. Women with big and saggy breasts can take care of problems such as pain, back deformities, neck pain, skin irritation and others thanks to this procedure. In a reduction mammaplasty, the surgeon will not only reduce the breast’s size, he will also sculpture it to give it a more esthetic shape. Many patients the issue is skin flabbiness along with drooping which affect the breast’s shape. The surgeon will do his best to lift up, firm and tighten the breast giving it an esthetic shape without drying out the breast’s tissue. Depending on the breasts’ size, implants can even be placed during this procedure.
Different techniques may be used, depending on the breast’s size. A classic and frequently used technique with big and flabby breasts is the inferior pedicle. The incision surrounds the areola going down to the inframammary furrow going underneath the breast following the furrow’s outline. If needed, the areola’s size can be reduced as well, drying the surplus glandular tissue, fat and skin. The areola is place higher in order to fit the new breast better.
In breast lifting cases or when there the amount of remaining tissue is not too much, the technique can be adapted. If this would be the case, the incision would also surround the areola, go down the inframammary furrow but we would avoid leaving horizontal scarring. Breast tissue is lifted to enhance the upper area giving it a nice conical form. Each case will determine which procedure is the best for each patient.
Breast reduction and lifting surgeries may be outpatient procedures; however, each case is different and staying overnight at our facility might be suggested. The procedure is usually done with general anesthesia, especially if other procedures will be done at the same time. En some breast lifting cases, though local anesthesia and sedation could be used.
Surgery is an average of two to three hours. The patient will be set with special brassiere, which must be worn for the first few weeks. Some pain and swelling is to be expected for the first few days. These symptoms are easily taken care of with painkillers.
We strongly recommend avoiding straining efforts for the first week. The patient will gradually be able to return to her regular routine.
