What is a Breast Reduction and can you achieve a desired size and shape?


It is possible to give whatever shape is desired by an individual after discussion with the plastic surgeon and also to make it firm and tight if the breast are hanging in addition to enlargement ( hypertrophy of breast). 

Reduction requires 2 nights stay in hospital. Back to work in 10 days after reduction. Below are the surgical markings of the tailing the breast to size planned before surgery. Breast reduction surgery may be the solution to the discomfort caused by excessively large breasts, constant back and neck pain, gouges in your shoulders from bra straps, deteriorating posture and an inability to participate in certain activities rank among the common complaints of women with large breasts. Breast reduction surgery (reduction mammoplasty) may help relieve these symptoms. As technology advances and surgical techniques improve, more women are seeking consultations from plastic surgeons to discuss options for adjusting their breast sizes to a healthier and more comfortable level. If you're considering breast reduction surgery, find out more about who the surgery can benefit and what you can expect from the procedure by visiting Professor Dr. Ashok Govila.

Indications for breast reduction surgery?
Breast reduction surgery is for women who have large breasts and want to resolve one or more of the following associated problems:

• Chronic back, neck and shoulder pain
• Poor posture
• Skin rash under the breasts
• Deep grooves in the shoulders from bra strap pressure
• Restricted levels of activity
• Low self-esteem
• Difficulty wearing or fitting into certain bras and clothing

You can have breast reduction surgery at any age, but it's generally advisable to wait until you're at least age 20,
by which time your breasts are likely to be fully developed. However, sometimes surgery is performed in teens who suffer significant emotional and psychological effects of having too-large breasts.

If you want children, consider postponing breast reduction surgery until you've had them. Changes to breast
tissue during pregnancy could alter your surgical results. Also, after the surgery, breast-feeding may be difficult.

Benefits of breast reduction surgery?
Benefits of the surgery include relief of pain in your upper back, neck and shoulders; reduced shoulder pressure from bra straps; increased ability to exercise and participate in physical activities; and a more positive self-image. The surgery may also help you breathe and sleep easier. Most women who have breast reduction surgery are highly

satisfied with the results.

Risks of breast reduction
Breast reduction surgery has the same risks as any other type of major surgery — bleeding, infection and an adverse reaction to the anesthesia. Other possible risks specific to breast reduction surgery include:

• Loss of sensation in the nipples and areola.
• Impaired blood supply to the nipples, leading to loss of the nipples and scarring.
• Inability to breast-feed.
• Asymmetry in size, shape, position and contour of the nipples or breasts, which may lead to further surgery to improve appearance.
• Altered body image and a period of adjustment to get used to the change in your appearance.

Understanding what's involved in breast reduction surgery and weighing the benefits and risks of surgery can help you decide if it's right for you.

Teen Breast Reduction
Teen breast reduction is a plastic surgery procedure that is performed in order to reduce the size and weight of the breasts especially when it’s a cause of embracement to the individual and creates functional difficulties in life like back ache , shoulder ache and dermatitis under the breast. Teen breast reduction can be performed on young women as early as sixteen years old. Teen breast reduction is best performed on breasts that have finished developing, as continued development may compromise surgical results. Teen breast reduction is performed on patients who suffer from medical or emotional problems associated with large breasts.

Why a Teen Breast Reduction surgery is required?
Teen breast reduction can be extremely beneficial to patients whose activity is restricted by troublesome breasts. 

Some teen girls are unable to participate in sports activities due to the size of their breasts or may be self-conscious when completing such activities. Teen breast reduction surgery candidates may also suffer physical problems associated with breast size including:

Shoulder, neck, and back pain, backache, Skin irritations, dermatitis under the breast skin, Breathing problems skeletal deformities Restricted sports activity

Embracement and personality disorders

Are there any Special Concerns for Teens?
Teen breast reduction surgery carries special concerns due to the age of a patient. Continued physical development is a concern that should be addressed on an individual basis to determine whether a patient is a good candidate for teen breast reduction surgery. Traditional breast reduction techniques involve repositioning of the nipple. This part of the technique carries the risk that a patient may not be able to breast feed in the future. A technique that does not interfere with the glandular and ductal system of the breast should be selected in such girls if in future they are planning to breast feed the baby.

Know What to Expect?
It is important for a teen breast surgery candidate and her parents to have a good understanding of what to expect before, during, and after surgery. Parents, surgeons, and patients together should ensure that a teen is emotionally and physically prepared for teen breast reduction surgery. As with all surgical procedures, teen breast reduction surgery carries both risks and benefits that a patient and her guardians should understand before the procedure.

Surgical Procedure
Teen breast reduction surgery is an inpatient procedure that is performed under a general anesthesia. In the
traditional procedure, an anchor-shaped incision is made in the breast fold up the lower portion of the breast and around the nipple. Some degree of scarring is an inevitable outcome of this procedure. Once the incision is made, excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue is removed, the nipple is repositioned, and the incisions are closed. Scar less teen breast reduction is performed through a 1 cm cut in the skin to suck the excessive fat out of breast and give them smaller shape. Scar less teen reduction is an outpatient surgery while for other types of procedures I normally admit the patient for a night making it a inpatient surgical procedure.
Some patients may be good candidates for scar less teen breast reduction surgery that involves a much less
extensive incision. This technique involves using liposuction to extract excess fat from the breasts and leaves the nipple intact. This can be a very desirable technique for teen breast reduction patients. Following any teen breast reduction surgery, the patient may experience discomfort, bruising, and swelling that usually subsides after a few weeks. Teen breast reduction surgery produces highly desirable dramatic results that often leave a patient physically and emotionally uplifted.

How to Prepare for Surgery:
To prepare for surgery both physically and mentally, consult Professor Dr. Ashok Govila so you'll know what to expect before the operation, the day of the surgery, and afterward:

1. Surgical consultation. You'll meet with the Professor Dr. Ashok Govila to discuss your medical history and the procedure. If you have any questions, ask at this time so you understand what the procedure will entail and what to expect from the recovery period. A medical examination may also be performed at this visit, and preliminary tests may be ordered.

2. Pre-surgical visit. Professor Dr. Ashok Govila will go over the final surgery details with you and give you instructions to follow (fasting - nil through your mouth for 8 hours before surgery) the night before your surgery. Inform him the medications you are taking in case you need to stop taking any of them prior to surgery.

3. Day of surgery. You will meet with your medical team to go over your medical history and the procedure. The anesthesiologist will explain how the anesthesia works and what effect it will have on you. Double-check that the information on your hospital bracelet is accurate. And if you have prosthetics, wear dentures, or use a hearing aid, be sure to inform your medical team. Inform the team of any drug allergies if you have, if you are diabetic, if you have thyroid problems, if you smoke, if you have hypertension.

4. Discharge after surgery. You will receive instructions on how to take care of yourself, when to have a post-operative appointment, and what prescriptions you may need. You will be provided with medications to be taken for 3 - 5 days after the surgery by the hospital pharmacy. You will need to arrange to have a family member or friend take you home after surgery. Within first 24 hours after surgery one is not allowed to drive.

Prepare for Surgery: Improving Your Outcome

To best prepare for surgery, take these steps in the weeks and days leading up to it:

1. If you smoke, stop. It's best to stop smoking at least two weeks before your procedure, but even a few days ahead will help. Inpatient surgery usually requires general anesthesia, and if you stop smoking your lungs will adjust better to the anesthesia. Quitting will also help reduce your risk of infection.

2. Medications. Carefully follow all of your surgeon's instructions regarding if and when you need to stop taking any of your regular medication prior to surgery. People who take blood thinners such as warfarin (sold under Coumadin
and other brand names) will likely have to stop before surgery.

3. Control your blood pressure. Surgery will be less risky if your blood pressure is at a healthy level. This can be a particular concern for overweight patients. If you are able to lose weight before your surgery, it may help reduce your blood pressure and make the surgery easier, professor says.

4. Take it easy. Relax and try not to overdo it in the days before your surgery. It's hard not to be anxious, but if
you are well rested and in good shape, you will be better able to withstand the physical toll of surgery. Make sure to sleep well on the night before surgery even if it means taking a small dose 5 mg of
tablet valium.

After Surgery: Guidelines
You will be encouraged by Professor Dr. Ashok Govila to get out of bed and move around as soon as you can, since 

being immobilized can be a cause of deep vein thrombosis. Be sure you know when to resume taking medications that
you discontinued prior to surgery, and confirm that they won't cause a negative interaction with any pain killers
you might have been prescribed. Follow all of your doctor's instructions about what you can or can't do whether the
advice is about having sex, driving a car, taking a bath, or walking up and down stairs. Understand that it may take
some time before you can get back to all your normal activities. Continue to watch your diet and keep your weight and your blood pressure in check until you can return to your regular exercise routine. Remember, the better you prepare for surgery, the easier the procedure and your recovery will be.

Breast Reduction Mammoplasty

After your surgery

After surgery, you'll be wrapped in a surgical bra over gauze dressings. In some patients Professor Dr. Ashok Govila
may leave a small tube placed in each breast to drain off blood and fluids for first day or two. Professor Dr. Ashok Govila prefers for patients to pick the design and individually fit each of his patients with their bra before surgery for most breast surgery procedures. But for reduction mammoplasty this measurement may not be accurate and therefore it's better to better to wait for a week when most wounds have healed and a new shape of breast has emerged. Professor Dr. Ashok Govila prefers after breast surgery bras for support and comfort with front opening so as to have the ease of use.
The gauze can be changed as needed. The front opening bra makes this much easier. This bra support can help with continued comfort. Professor Dr. Ashok Govila normally uses dissolvable sutures on the surface, so no suture removal is normally needed.

You may feel some discomfort for the first couple of days- especially when you move around or cough- and some
soreness for a week or more. Although Professor Dr. Ashok Govila prescribes a strong pain medication, his patients
typically tell him that plain Tylenol /Panadol is more than enough to manage their comfort.

Professor Dr. Ashok Govila will need to see you the day after discharge from the hospital. If your breast skin is
very dry following surgery, you can apply a moisturizer several times a day.

However, be sure to keep the suture area dry and keep away from the SteriStrips paper tape. You are advised not
to use any bra that has sharp or hard supporting borders.

Your first menstruation following surgery may cause your breasts to swell and hurt. You may also experience random, shooting pains for a few months. You can expect some loss of feeling in your nipples and breast skin, caused by the swelling after surgery. This usually fades over the next six weeks or so. In some patients, however, it may last a year or more, and occasionally it may be permanent.

Returning back to normal

Although you may be up and about in a day or two, your breasts may still ache occasionally for a couple of weeks.
You should avoid lifting or pushing anything heavy for three or four weeks.

Professor Dr. Ashok Govila will give you detailed instructions for resuming your normal activities. Most women can
return to work (if it's not too strenuous) and social activities the same week of surgery. Activities involving bouncing, bending over, or lifting the arms over the head will take longer. Comfort is nature's way of telling you what you can, and cannot do. Listening to your body is the best way to protect your healing tissues.

You may be instructed to avoid sex for a week or more, since sexual arousal can cause your incisions to swell, and to avoid anything but gentle contact with your breasts for about six weeks.

A small amount of fluid draining from your surgical wound, or some crusting, is normal. We encourage our patients
to call us if there are any unusual symptoms, such as bleeding or severe pain.

Your new look

Breast shape evolution after surgery depends on the surgical method. Shorter scar techniques require a redistribution of tissue to achieve their contour. Although much of the swelling and bruising will disappear in the first few weeks, it may be six months to a year before your breasts settle into their new shape. Even then, their shape may fluctuate in response to your hormonal shifts, weight changes, and pregnancy.

After Surgery Scar Care can help improve your scar look to their best. Professor Dr. Ashok Govila will make every effort to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible. However, It’s important to follow up with him for the management of scars since it takes several months of close follow up if one is looking for inconspicuous scars.
He uses specially fabricated and designed medicated bras for this purpose. Some patients respond better to medicated silastic plates over the scars and under their bra. These plates are custom designed on the body of the patient by professor himself. Still, it's important to remember that breast lift scars are extensive and permanent. They often remain lumpy and red for months, and then gradually become less obvious, sometimes eventually fading to thin white lines. Fortunately, the scars can usually be placed so that you can wear even low-cut tops.

Of all plastic surgery procedures, breast reduction results in the quickest body-image changes. You'll be rid of
the physical discomfort of large breasts, your body will look better proportioned, and clothes will fit you better.

However, as much as you may have desired these changes, you'll need time to adjust to your new image-as will your family and friends. Be patient with yourself, and with them. Keep in mind why you had this surgery, and chances are that, like most women, you'll be pleased with the results.

With smaller, better proportioned breasts, you'll feel more comfortable and your clothes will fit better.
