Step By Step Procedure of Breast Reduction Surgery in Gurgaon

Breast reduction in Gurgaon is an inpatient procedure , performed under general anaesthesia. Here is a stepwise illustration of breast reduction surgery.

  • The anaesthetist administers general anaesthesia to help relieve pain and discomfort during the surgery.
  • The surgeon marks the extra tissue region and the areola- the dark region around the nipples.
  • The surgeon makes an incision corresponding to the marks made and removes the fat, tissues, and skin from the breasts.
  • The surgeon repositions the nipple and areola while bringing the incisions together to check with the smaller breasts.
  • The incisions are sutured, a semi-compressive dressing is placed, and excess blood and fluids are drained through drains if needed.

The wounds are allowed to heal while covered with gauze or bandages.


Preparing for Breast Reduction Surgery (Pre, During & Post)

Here is what one can expect pre, post, and during a breast reduction surgery.

Before Breast reduction surgery

While you prepare for a breast reduction surgery, your surgeon will take you through the following before the procedure.

  • A thorough evaluation of medical history and overall health status,
  • A detailed discussion on the expectations and desirable breast look, risks, and advantages associated with breast reduction surgery,
  • Examination of the breasts, size, and volume,
  • Medically record through pictures the pre-surgery breast size,
  • Conduct diagnostic procedures like- routine blood analysis and baseline mammogram.

You will need to quit smoking and avoid taking anti-inflammatory drugs, anti-coagulants, or herbal supplements a couple of days before and after surgery.

During Breast reduction surgery

During the breast reduction surgery, you can expect general anaesthesia administration, surgical incisions around the breasts, and reduced areola in rare cases.

The incision scars reduce over time but do not completely vanish. Sometimes, during the surgery, the nipples and areola may be removed and reattached in a different position to re-contour the breasts.

After Breast reduction surgery

Immediately after surgery, the breasts will likely be covered by dressing and bandages. A tube that drains excess blood and fluids may be placed under the breast crease. Medications and pain relievers help reduce the risk of infections and pain.

After a week of surgery, breasts may seem tender, sensitive, swollen, or bruised. It may take a few months for these symptoms to subside. To protect and comfort the breasts, the surgeon recommends post-operative compression bras or sports bra. Avoid underwire bras for a couple of months after the surgery. You may also have to refrain from heavy physical activities for two to four weeks post-surgery.
