For a selected segment of the female population, large breasts are a curse and not a blessing. These young women find that in early puberty their breasts begin to develop at a faster rate than normal and by their early twenties they suffer all sorts of physical and emotional discomfort. For some women they feel that people look at their chests first, before they look at their faces, other women feel embarrassed and struggle to find clothing to fit. These women suffer headaches, neck and back pain and have grooves dug into their shoulders from their bra straps. The answer is a breast reduction in Phuket.
During a consultation with your plastic surgeon you can discuss your envisioned goals for the surgery and your surgeon can help you to decide which is the best procedure to suit your needs. A breast reduction in Phuket involves creating an incision around the areola and the nipple and extending that line in a keyhole shaped V incision down to the crease of the breast.
The nipple will need to be repositioned higher up on the chest wall. There are two methods that may be used, depending on the patients needs. A nipple graft can be performed and this procedure involves temporarily separating the entire nipple and areola from the chest wall and repositioning it higher up on the breast. The pedicle method means that the areola is lifted but the nipple is kept partially attached. This means that the milk ducts are not severed, which is ideal for women who intend to breast feed after the surgery. The nipple is rotated upwards, keeping the blood supply and milk ducts intact.
An incision is made beneath the nipple and excess fatty tissue and glandular tissue are removed. The breast is reshaped to a more aesthetically pleasing appearance and then the skin is drawn together, the excess is trimmed away and the incision is usually taped closed to minimise scarring. The breasts will be wrapped in a pressure bandage for several weeks to offer support and to minimise swelling and bruising as well as to aid in the healing process after a breast reduction in Phuket.
There is pain and discomfort associated with any type of surgery. The pain associated with a breast reduction will be moderate during the first two weeks after surgery, but this can be controlled with the aid of painkillers.
Patients can expect to be able to return to work within two weeks after the surgery. It is advisable to take it slow and not to resume normal activities until six weeks after the surgery. The final results of the surgery can really be noted three to six months after the surgery.
There may be pain, bruising, bleeding, swelling, infection, scarring and numbness experienced after a breast reduction surgery. Most symptoms are temporary and will disappear after a few weeks. Permanent numbness can result as a side effect or nerve damage. Skin irregularities, shooting pains in the breasts for the first few months and pain and swelling during the menstrual cycle may also be experienced.
