Breast Reduction |, , , ,

Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) is the solution for women who are burdened by the weight and size of their breasts. The excess skin, fat, and other connective tissue is sculpted into a set of shapely, symmetrical breasts that fit the natural contours of the body.

When is the Breast Reduction Procedure Advisable?

The best candidates for breast reduction surgery are women who have passed the childbearing years of their life. However, this is simply a general precaution for women who are worried about the shape and size of their breasts changing during this phase.

Breast reduction surgery is advisable for younger patients who understand they can always have a second surgery after childbearing or maturity. Breast reduction surgery is recommended for the following issues:

  • Negative body image from disproportionate size
  • Chronic pain in the back, neck, and shoulders from the weight
  • Limits on athleticism and daily tasks
  • Clothing and bra restrictions due to size
  • Chronic outbreaks of rashes or skin irritation under the breasts
  • Disproportionate breasts where one is larger than the other

A consultation prepares patients for the surgery by assessing their individual needs. Breast reduction surgery will not reduce the ability to perform cancer screenings nor will it increase your risk for cancer.

Our English-speaking specialist cosmetic surgeon will advise you to stop taking certain medications and to stop smoking at least two weeks before surgery to hasten the healing process and reduce scarring.

Visualizing the shape, size, symmetry, and final appearance of the breasts are all vital to achieving a body image that you are happy with for the rest of your life.

Breast Reduction Treatment

A variety of surgical methods are used to reduce the size of the breasts and reshape them into the desired cup size and form. These may include liposuction to remove excess fat and incisions to remove excess skin tissue. Then, tissue is modified into symmetrical shapes that reduce the overall size of the breasts.

The typical incisions are made around the areola or below. The areola is often reduced in size to achieve the proportional character of the desired breast appearance.

Breast Reduction – Recovery

Finally, recovery begins with the application of a surgical wrap or compression bra.

This is to help remove pressure from healing incisions. Tubes may be inserted under the arms where the lymph node saturation is highest to drain the pressure of excess fluid and blood. As standard procedure, pain medicine and antibiotics are prescribed to reduce the risk of infection and any discomfort you may experience.

Ten days, or two weeks later, the sutures are removed.

Firstly, do your homework! Check out Peru’s medical college website (Colegio Medico del Peru) and see if the doctor really has a RNE (National Registry of Specialist) license. Many doctors only have a CMP license, but this is not enough for invasive, specialist procedures.

Finally, talk to us. Make contact and have an in-depth conversation is a good starting point. This is important because you get a feel for the type of clinic we are and the service you can expect to receive.
