Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction Surgery Solutions in Gauteng

Breast reduction surgery is a cosmetic surgery that aims to reduce the size of a woman’s breasts in an effort to reduce the physical strain on the upper part of their body that is caused by oversized breasts.

Oversized breasts can cause medical problems for women because of the additional, disproportionate, weight being put on the upper part of the body. Women with oversized breasts commonly experience bra indentations on their shoulders, which can cause skin irritation and discomfort. The increased weight on the upper body can also lead to skeletal deformities, breathing problems, and recurring back and neck pain. Luckily, Centurion Cosmetic Clinic is your answer when you are considering a breast reduction surgery in Gauteng.

The Procedure

A breast reduction surgery, also referred to as reduction mammoplasty in medical terms, removes excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue from the breasts, reshaping the breasts into smaller and a more proportionate sizes that are more suitable for your body’s build. After the breasts are reshaped, the nipples must be relocated to ideal positions to fit the new shapes, resulting in no more breastfeeding afterwards.

In the end, the purpose of this procedure is to relieve a woman’s upper body from carrying excessive weight because of large and oversized breasts, delivering a feasible solution for a healthier and more proportionate upper body.

Recovering from the Procedure

During your recovery, you will wear a surgical bra for about 6 weeks to 3 months after your surgery. This will allow your breasts to adapt their new shape while being held still for the most part. You can expect some swelling and bruising, which will heal steadily during recovery. You can expect some pain and discomfort when you move around or cough as well.

Your surgeon will prescribe specific painkillers to manage pain and discomfort while your body recovers from surgery. It is crucial to only use your prescribed medication to ensure that your painkillers do not interfere with blood coagulation. If you are a smoker, you must refrain from smoking for two months before and during your recovery period, as well as a few months before to optimise oxygen levels in your body.
