PURPOSE :

Adapting the size of the breasts to fit the patient's body type. Large breasts can be both a source of low self-esteem and bothersome for active women. They can also cause such problems as back pain, skeletal deformities, and skin problems. In addition to health benefits, breast reduction can also correct breast shape and the location of the nipples.

PROCEDURES :

anesthesia : general
procedure:the total mass of the mammary gland is reduced, as is extraneous skin. The nipples are placed in the appropriate position. The scar runs the border of the aureola and in a skin fold under the breast. It is also possible to decrease the size of the aureola. Liposuction is also possible during this procedure

POST OPERATIVE CARE :

special bra + elastic bandage
Dressing changes, stitch removal after 10 days.
special bra + elastic bandages (see breast augmentation)
The expected effect is visible in 4-6 weeks, with complete healing by 3 months' time.

POSSIBLE COMPLICATIONS:

Complications are rare and relatively non-threatening. As with any surgical procedure, there is the possibility of hemorrhage, hematomas, and infections, although these have no effect on the final result and can be treated by standard means. There may also be transient loss of sensation in the breast and/or aureola.

LENGTS OF TIME PATIENT MUST REMAIN AFTER THE PROCEDURE:

2 days

TIME NEED FOR RECUPERATION:

The patient must not lift her arms or undertake vigorous activity for 4-6 weeks. Normal activities may be resumed 2 weeks after the procedure.

PRE-OPEERATIVE PREPARATION:

It is best to perform the surgery 2 weeks into the menstrual cycle, 6 months after stopping breastfeeding, and/or after the last planned birth of a child. The patient must quit smoking at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure, and no medications affecting coagulation may be used (ex. Aspirin). The patient must be in overall good health, and laboratory test results must be within normal limits. Emotional unsteadiness and lack of specific expectations (or unrealistic expectations), of the final effect of the procedure on the part of the patient may be contraindications for going ahead with the surgery.

REQUIRED TEST :

EKG blood morphology, blood type bleeding time, clotting time .

Patients are encouraged to have an ultrasound or breast mammogram before the procedure. The surgical procedure performed by our staff allows for the precise analysis of the results of these tests.

CONTRAINDICATIONS:

coagulopathies, uncontrolled blood pressure disturbances, uncontrolled diabetes, infections in the area that is to be operated are absolutely contraindicative of the procedure
