What is Breast Reduction?
Breast reasts by removing excess fat tissue and glandular tissue, and tightening the skin. Disproportionately large breasts or implants might be a cause of pain and distress and might make it impossible to comfortably participate in certain activities resulting from the size and the weight of the breasts. Breast reduction can be performed to address medical issues as well as cosmetic concerns.
You are an ideal candidate for a breast reduction surgery if you:
Wish to correct breast asymmetry
Want to change the size of your breasts
Want to switch your implants with smaller ones
Would like to improve your body proportions
Wish to improve your confidence
Are healthy and at your ideal weight
Have done your research on the procedure and the possible risks
Bruising, swelling, sensitivity, and mild pain are normal and expected. You might have to wear compression bandages or garments for support, prevention of excessive building of fluids, and correct positioning of the breasts. You must follow the specific instructions your surgeon gives you until you are fully healed. You may go back to work after a couple of weeks of rest for recovery.
As the Voila health care team, we will ensure that you have gone through all the necessary health checkups before your surgery, and always be there for you during recovery to ensure you feel your best the whole time.
Aftercare is as important as the surgery itself when it comes to boosting the effects of the procedure.
Quitting smoking and drinking during the healing process are recommended, as smoking and alcohol intake might slow down the healing and potentially affect the surgery results.
Make sure you keep yourself propped up with multiple pillows while lying down or sleeping.
Swelling is expected but it will start to go down after day 2 and 3, which are the most challenging. Just trust the process.
If necessary, your doctor may prescribe you painkillers.
Patience is key. A better you is on the way!
