Surgery Process Guide to Scarless Mammoplasty
“Ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery are women whose oversized breasts are causing medical problems, low self-esteem, physical or social discomfort or frustration in general.” – Dr Jennifer L. Walden, MD, PLLC
Small incisions are made in the crease of the breast or subtly in the armpit. It’s more suited to patients who have a larger fat to glandular ratio in the breast.
A general anaesthetic will be given to you before surgery commences.
The surgeon will make tiny incisions (around a few millimetres wide) in either the crease of the breast, or in the upper outer section of the breast, close to the armpit.
Liposuction techniques are then used to drain the excess fat from the breast.
Once all the surplus fat has been drained, the incisions are closed.
Swelling of the breasts after surgery.
You may experience asymmetry of the breasts following the surgery.
Having a general anaesthetic administered can cause serious risks – however these are rare (typically, these risks will occur one case in every 10,000).
These complications can include:
-Anaphylaxis (a harmful reaction to the anaesthetic)
Inherited reaction to the anaesthetic
In extremely rare cases, death (approx. 1 death for every 100,000 general anaesthetics given).
These problems are more likely to arise if:
you are undergoing emergency surgery
you have other illnesses
you are a smoker
you are overweight
Your surgeon should talk you through these risks before your operation.
