Many women suffer from having breasts that are too large, out of proportion with their body frame that also may cause painful problems with their neck, back and shoulders. Some women cope with tiredness, even depression and low self-esteem due to this condition. A breast reduction is the removal of breast fat, glandular tissue and excess skin from oversized breasts.
What to expect after surgery: with some breast procedures you may be able to go home several hours after surgery or the next day. Moderate pain is typical for the first few days and is easily controlled by medications. Bruising is unusual and swelling will be moderate for the first week but rapidly disappears. For the first three weeks breasts sit high on the chest wall. They will gradually settle into a natural position and contour. Depending on your breast procedure many everyday activities can be resumed within the first week and most by the third or fourth week.
After breast reduction surgery you will find that clothes fit better, you will have a more healthy, balanced and beautifully proportioned overall body creating more self-confidence and self-esteem.
