Performing the surgery: What is the procedure like and is it possible to preserve the breast feeding ability and original sensation?
Depending on the surgical method, the incision can be performed vertically (lollipop incision), as an inverted T incision or periareolar, which is an incision around the areola.
Excess breast tissue such as skin, fat and glandular tissue will be removed and the nipple-areola complex will be repositioned at a higher level.
Considering all aesthetic aspects, the remaining mammary tissue will be modeled and the final touch will be given by the sophisticated intracutaneous suture technique, all in all resulting in a new shaped, symmetric breast with a firm and youthful appearance. It is not only a fact, that a broad variety of different methods can be provided; your attention will be directed to the preservation of the nipple-areola-complex functionality. A specific feature of our routinely applied technique is that the milk ducts are not transacted and thus the association between nipple and mammary gland will persist, which is essential for lactation and breast feeding ability. As a rule, the sensation of the nipple also remains due to the relevant sensitive nerve fibers being spared.
The breast reduction surgery will be performed in one of our partner hospitals under general anesthesia. Depending on the surgical technique and the scope, a breast reduction surgery will take between 2 to 3 hours. The hospitalization period lasts usually only 1 overnight stay.
Recovery time after a surgery: How long should you rest?
Depending on the complexity of the surgery, you should take your time of 10 to 14 days to recover. You will need to wear a supportive bra for approximately 4 to 6 weeks and should avoid vigorous activities during the healing process.
