What to Expect from a Breast Reduction

Surgical breast reduction is an outpatient treatment conducted under general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery depends on a few factors, including the surgical technique and the size of the reduction. The areola and nipple area repositioning is also a factor. In most cases, liposuction is needed for fat and tissue removal to reduce breast size. After surgery, patients will be monitored closely in our private recovery room before they are discharged home. A thin tube for draining is usually placed near the surgical site, and you will need to wear a compression bra for several days that will increase blood circulation to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the post-surgery effects should go away.
