Female breast reduction
Female breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) is a procedure to remove excess adipose tissue, part of the mammary gland, excess skin and subcutaneous tissue.
Health problems are the main reason for reduction mammoplasty. The hypertrophy of the mammary gland and excessive accumulation of fat tissue in the breasts cause the breasts to differ significantly in size from a standard size. The consequences of disproportionately large breasts are: back pain, chest pain, back and shoulder deformities, restriction of physical activity, discomfort in performing daily physical activities and lack of self confidence.
Preparation for surgery
Two weeks before the surgery, it is advisable not to take aspirin and other drugs containing acetylsalicylic acid or its derivatives (e.g. metamizole, ketoprofen, ibuprofen, diclofenac etc.), only paracetamol is allowed. To reduce bruising, we recommend taking Rutinoscorbin (ascorbic acid+rutoside) for 3 weeks before surgery (2 pills 3 times a day). Makeup, contact lenses and nail polish must be removed before surgery. Smoking is also inadvisable.
Effects of the procedure
The first effects of the surgery can be assessed after 6 weeks, when the wounds are healed. The full effect is visible after about 6 months. Breast reduction reduces spinal cord and chest compression, and as a result eliminates pain. This surgery often improves physical fitness, mental comfort and self-confidence.
