Why Undergo Breast Reduction Surgery? 

Having fuller and shapely breasts is indeed an asset, a gift in fact to some. Women born with them act and feel confident and proud of their body. The greatly endowed ones, however, think and act the opposite. Having oversize breasts make them feel insecure and embarrassed, affecting their personal growth and social life. Some girls’ ages 12- 15 years old who already have big breasts are also not spared from the social stigma perceived of them by the conservative society. In addition, large oversize breasts can also pose health risks such as back, neck and shoulders pain due to weight, as well as circulation and respiratory problems.

THE SOLUTION:  BREAST REDUCTION.

THE GOAL: The primary goal of this procedure is to make the size of your breasts proportional to your body frame and to lessen the discomfort related with overly large breasts.

THE Breast Reduction Surgery:

Breast Surgery involves removal of excess fat, glandular tissue and skin through incisions, and then the nipple is placed in new position. In some cases, excess fat may be removed in conjunction with liposuction. Dr. Alonzo, however, states that if the breast size is largely due to fatty tissue and excess skin is not a factor, then liposuction alone may be used. The reduction technique will be determined by your breast composition, individual condition, personal preferences, and Dr. Alonzo’s advice.

It is performed in the hospitals’ operating room under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia, with overnight stay. The procedure normally takes one to three hours or more to complete.

After the surgery, you will have bandages, which will be removed after a week. Stitches will be removed after 7 to days. You will experience tenderness; swelling and some minor pain and discomfort for a few days, but these can be relieved by the medications prescribed by Dr. Alonzo.

POST SURGERY RECOVERY:

You can go back to work 7 days following your surgery. Some patients report that they go back to work 5 days following their surgery. While recuperating at home, you will be advised to wear a therapeutic bra which you will wear for a few weeks until the marks, bruising, and swelling are gone. Strenuous activities like exercise and sports can be resumed after 1 month to 6 weeks. Dr. Alonzo will also advise you to avoid engaging in sexual activities as your breasts are stuffed with hormones, to avoid prolong swelling. Final result can be seen after a month. However, it may take six months to 1 year for your body to completely adjust to your new breast size.  

Surgery Risks: Risks associated with breast reduction may include scarring, asymmetry, altered nipple sensation, delayed wound healing, fluid retention in the breast, difficulty in breast-feeding, but if you will follow your surgeons instructions, those risks can be limited.

Be sure to discuss all your concerns about the surgery with Dr. Alonzo during your initial consultation, and follow all his instructions from your pre-surgery to post surgery care, for a speedy and healthy recovery.  

To achieve optimal results, breast reduction can be done alone or in conjunction with nipple and/or areola reduction and/or breast lift.

Note:
Pre- operative laboratory works are required for this procedure. Laboratory test needed includes: Clotting time bleeding time, Chest X-ray, CBC w/ platelet count, FBS and ECG. Medical clearance from cardiologist is also required.
