How safe is Breast Reduction Surgery?
I have been doing Breast reduction surgery in Lucknow for more than 15 years. I ensure patient safety and strive to provide the best results. I am passionate about my work and would love to share the before and after pictures of my Cosmetic Breast surgery patients. I generally do it as a day care procedure and you won’t even require admission to hospital. No bed rest is required and you would be up and about from the next day. Pain tolerance varies from person to person but most patients do not require regular pain medicines in a few days. Straining in the form of lifting weights or high impact exercises are to be avoided for a few weeks only.
Some myths and truth about breast surgeries:
Myth: I will not be able to breastfeed at all.
Truth: Though it may decrease slightly yet there are newer techniques which preserve this ability; ask your surgeon about it.
Myth: I will lose sensation over breast and nipple.
Truth: May be slightly decreased but again overall with right technique most of that improves over time to nearly normal level.
Myth: I will develop cancer.
Truth: Surgery will not increase the chances, rather, if at all, removal of part of breast tissue means removing part of chance of having it.
Myth: Causes ugly scars.
Truth: Some skin types may be more prone to unfavourable scaring, but again, if properly performed, scars are well hidden.
Myth: I can reduce breast size through medicines, creams, or exercise.
Truth: No medicine or cream can do that, although exercise may achieve little decrease yet it will return once you stop, also, without surgical tightening of extra loose skin, breast will sag and drop further.
