Surgical breast reduction, also referred to as reduction mammoplasty, is the reduction or reshaping of a person’s breasts through plastic surgery. You can easily have the procedure at Dubai Cosmetic Surgery, where we have a number of qualified and experienced surgeons on hand.
This type of plastic surgery in Dubai is considered as the most successful, because most people who undergo are satisfied with the results. In fact, during a recent study on a number of women who underwent breast reduction surgery, it was discovered that the participants showed 94 percent satisfaction with the outcome of their procedure. This was in relation to shape, size, sensation and nipple position.
Why breast reduction
Most people who undergo breast reduction surgery normally have large and heavy breasts and a small or average body. This can most likely be caused by genes, which means the large and heavy breasts run in the family. This ends up causing problems in your day to day life including:
- Chronic neck and back pain.
- Breast lesions which are difficult to heal.
- Stretched skin which leads to cracking and pain.
- Lack of sufficient sleep due to the limited sleeping positions.
- Poor posture which leads to slouching , difficulty in standing up straight and inability to relax your shoulders
- Excess stress on the shoulders normally caused by your bra straps, which can easily lead to scarring.
- Low self-esteem.
- Inability to exercises.
- Loss of sensation on your breasts
There are some non-surgical procedures which can be considered to increase comfort like having good bra support, massages, physical therapies etc. but in the end not much relief is experienced. This is because not much can be done short of a surgical procedure not unless the macromastia (big breasts) are as a result of being extremely overweight. In this case, you can go on a weight loss program or have Liposuction in Dubai to get you started.
Are you a candidate?
When it comes to breast reduction surgery, not everyone with big breasts can undergo this procedure. Some of the reasons that can push you a step back from having a breast reduction surgery include a history of clotting problems, undiagnosed lumps on your breasts, mental instability, smoking, irregular mammograms, history of diabetes and,unrealistic and grandiose expectations among others.
On the other hand, for you to be able to undergo through breast reduction in Dubai, you should be:
- Realistic expectations of the results
- Healthy without any active diseases
- Sound mind and ability to talk with your surgeon about what you want
- Non-smoking to avoid any complications.
After the surgeon has cleared you of all shortcomings and qualified you for the surgery, it is time to go under. The surgeon then removes excess skin and tissue from your breasts. If need be, he can also reposition your nipples as well as reduce the size of the areola. This takes between three and five hours under general anesthesia. When it is all done, he stitches the openings. The procedure is normally done in one session and the patient can go home the same day.
What to expect
After the surgery, drainage tubes are attached to your breast to collect fluids. These tubes are removed after a couple of days. Secondly, you are given a surgical bra which will offer your new breasts support as they heal.
After two weeks, the stitches may be removed, while the soreness and swelling might last for several weeks. You can carry on with your normal activities after 2 to 4 weeks, but it is advisable to stay away from any heavy lifting or strenuous exercises.
Lastly, you will have noticeable scars on your breasts, which might diminish over time, but they will not disappear entirely.
The biggest setback of breast reduction surgery is for women who might need to breastfeed in future. A reduction mammoplasty can lead to a possible difficulty in breastfeeding.
Having a mammoplasty changes your life completely for the better, with very high self-esteem, no more pain, better posture as well as a positive alteration in your appearance.
