Breast Reduction in Hannover

BrustverkleinerungUsually, most women wish for a Breast Augmentation or Breast Lifting, if they consider a Breast Surgery. However, some women suffer from a too big breast, for example if they have pain due to the weight or posture problems and are therefore restricted in their everyday life. In these cases, a Breast Reduction can help to both eliminate the complaints and to obtain an attractive appearance.

The Breast Reduction in detail

The reasons for a Breast Reduction can be numerous. If the breasts are too big in comparison to the whole body, the body seems unnatural und not aesthetic. Moreover, they can become an unintentional eye-catcher and can therefore lead to discomfort in public. Furthermore, physical complaints can be the result of a too big breast, such as posture problems, neck and back pain and tensions. Sometimes, also the mobility is restricted and shopping clothes can be difficult. It is not seldom that too big volume and recessive fat leads to a a drooping breast leading to unpleasant sweating. The reason for a too big breast is mainly the genetic endowment, in some cases, weight gain or an abnormal deposition of subcutaneous fat can be the reason.

Experience by more than 1000+ successful surgeries

The Breast Reduction will be carried out under general anaesthetic and the surgeon can choose between different cutting techniques. Depending on the physical conditions, the surgeon can cut along the breast crease or centrical around the nipple. Besides these two versions, a more modern technique such as the Breast Reduction after Hall-Findlay can be chosen. This method is preferred by most surgeons because it can lead to a better form and the surgery will last shorter. Moreover, the recovery phase can be shortened because no drainage is laid and the nipples are not affected.

After the elimination of excessive fat, the surgeon forms the breast, whereby the nipples can be moved depending on technique and operation procedure. Finally, the wound margins will be sewed and drainages will be laid. In general, the surgery will last at least two hours, depending on the starting position and wished result. A possible ambulatory surgery is not recommended because the support is not highly given und the process is more complex and extensive than for example a Breast Augmentation.

Possible Problems and Care

There is a certain risk because a Breast Reduction is also a surgical procedure. However, the patient can be relaxed if the surgery is carried out by an experienced surgeon because he already performed many surgeries. Complications can never be excluded, but they are rare in this case. Bruises and local swellings are the most common side effects of the surgery and will disappear after a couple of days. The drainages can be already removed after a couple of hours. However, the surgery can lead to a different sensibility of the nipple or to redness and swelling, but also these side effects will disappear automatically.

A recovery phase of seven days is highly recommended, during which no sport activities should be performed. In general, solar radiation should be avoided. In order to protect the breast, patients should sleep on the back and a tight bra should be worn in the first twelve weeks after the surgery to support the form and recovery.
