The excision of excess fat depends upon the size of the breast and required volume of the breast to be achieved. Various techniques involve incision lines that vary from patient to patient. In a traditional breast reduction surgery, one can expect some degree of scarring, and the scar will be horizontal and more prominent than in a vertical incision surgery.
In some cases, liposuction can also be used for breast reduction where only one small incision is placed in the less prominent areas such as the arms and therefore is referred to as scar-free breast reduction surgery.
Scars will be slightly raised and red for a few months after the procedure. The visibility of scar also depends upon the technique used by the surgeon and level of aftercare. A skilled surgeon positions the scar very discreetly and offers the tools and techniques that enhance the healing process.
Does Breast Reduction surgery interfere with breastfeeding?
At Aestiva Clinic, the breast reduction surgery is performed by female plastic and cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mrinalini Sharma, and the procedure is carried out with proper techniques. However, there can be cases where women won’t be able to breastfeed their children. This treatment is entirely cosmetic based on the degree of the reduction of the breast size. Therefore, it is advisable to discuss the issue with the surgeon during the consultation.
