Breast reduction surgeries are surgical procedures that aim to reduce enlarged breasts to normal sizes due to excessive breast development or weight gain and pregnancy. Such surgeries are usually performed for both aesthetic and functional reasons. Large breasts can cause back and shoulder pain, restrict physical activities and limit clothing options. At the same time, large breasts can affect a person’s self-confidence and create aesthetic concerns.
Breast reduction surgery is performed by removing excess fat, tissue and skin. This procedure allows the breasts to have a more proportionate size and shape, so that the person can relax both physically and psychologically. The surgery is usually performed under general anaesthesia and can last between 2-4 hours. The recovery period may vary depending on the extent of the procedure and the general health status of the patient. Prior to surgery, a detailed consultation between the patient and the surgeon ensures a clear understanding of expectations and possible outcomes.
