The Breast Reduction Process
So how do we actually reduce your breasts? First, we use some general anesthesia to put you under—this is an in-depth procedure, so you’ll need to be asleep while we work.
From there, your breast tissue and fat will be removed until the predetermined size is reached. We might find that your breasts are lacking volume, so we may use implants to replace the fullness. Yes, as silly as it may seem, you may actually end your breast reduction with breast implants!
The surgery takes about 3-4 hours in total, depending on the amount of breast tissue to be removed and if you need implants or not.
After the Treatment
Once the treatment is finished, you won’t be able to resume all of your usual activitiesusual activities in about 2 weeks. Some discomfort following the procedure is normal, but luckily, this won’t last too long. You can use pain medications and muscle relaxants for the next several days
You will need to be careful not to lift anything over 10 lbs for the next 6 weeks or engage in any strenuous exercise, especially any activities that involve your chest muscles.
Your breasts will continue to heal over the next 6 weeks, and you can resume most of your normal activities including exercise.. After 6 months, you’ll find that your breasts have fully recovered.
If you have any questions after the procedure is complete, feel free to ask! We want you to have a solid understanding of your treatment timeline.
