It is a procedure to reduce the size of breasts through the resection of fat, gland and skin, making them firmer and more proportional to your body. You can also reduce the size of the areola and nipple.
Two hours and a half.
It is an outpatient procedure in most cases (discharge the same day).
Most patients return to their daily activities in 7-10 days, no stitches are removed since we use absorbable sutures. Patients must wear a special bra postoperatively for 4 weeks.
Surgery results are variable considering the aging process in each patient. They may last up to 15 years, though.
Pain is mild in most patients. However, this depends on each patient’s pain tolerance. Analgesics are prescribed to reduce pain.
Complications are infrequent. However, some can be bleeding, infection, partial wound dehiscence and decreased sensitivity.
It is variable; patients who are dissatisfied or who have health problems associated to their breast size are candidates.
It can be combined with face or body procedures.
