All such heavy breasts can be reduced.
Oversized breasts are not only a matter of embarrassment but extremely uncomfortable too. These can result in constant discomfort, shoulder and neck pain. Oversized breasts are seen both in young and elderly females.
Operative and post operative:
Breast size can be effectively reduced by surgical removal of the excess tissues. This surgery is done under general anesthesia and requires about 3 days of hospitalization. Dressings are required for about 7 to 10 days until the stitches are removed. There is a resultant scar around the nipple areola complex and inverted T shaped lines over the lower portion of breast and chest wall. All efforts are made to make the breasts of equal size and shape however if the size in the pre operative stage was too big this may not be achieved. But reduction in oversized breasts itself gives immense relief.
