Some women with overly large breasts discover that their breasts diminish their self-esteem and interfere with their day-to-day activities, which can contribute to a diminished quality of life. This may be due to physical, social, or cosmetic concerns that overly large breasts exacerbate.
Fortunately, breast reduction surgery can reduce large breasts to the size and weight that patients prefer.
What Are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?
Have More Concerns About Breast Reduction?
Patients should anticipate needing one to two weeks off of work following breast surgery. During the breast reduction recovery period, patients should refrain from physically demanding tasks. Most patients can resume rigorous activities after six weeks.
Women should expect mild to moderate discomfort during their recovery, especially in the first two to three days. Most patients manage these symptoms with prescribed pain medication and proper compression garments.
Breast reduction surgery will leave scars, but the natural creases and coloration of the breast will conceal many of them. All breast reduction scars will fade over time, which can be expedited with proper care and scar-fading treatments.
The initial results of a breast reduction will be visible within six weeks as post-operative swelling fades. Final results may take up to six months to fully develop.
