Breast Reduction Techniques and Risks
Several techniques can be used for breast reduction, all of which have the goal of preserving the nipple and areola while leaving scars that can be hidden from view by regular clothing. Some of the risks associated with this operation are bleeding, infection, asymmetry, nipple or skin loss, altered nipple sensation or ability to breast-feed. Using careful technique and expertise we strive to minimize these risks.
Breast Reduction Recovery
Following a breast reduction procedure patients will have gauze over their breasts and will need to take a week or two simply resting to recover from the procedure. Any side effects of the surgery will be the most significant during this time and pain medication will be prescribed. Most Hartford, Connecticut breast reduction patients take two weeks off work to give themselves time to recover. However, full recovery from the procedure can take a couple of months and it is important that patients wear supportive bras or sports bras for the months following their surgery to provide sufficient support until the area has fully recovered.
