Breast Reduction in Iran
| Breast reduction is a type of breast surgery that the excess skin and tissue is removed to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body.
Disproportionately large breasts in women can cause serious problems such as neck pain and back pain. The skin under the breasts start to irritate after a while and women with this problem have difficulty fitting into bras and poor self-image related to large breasts.
The surgery is accomplished under general anesthesia and it usually takes 2-5 hours. You have to stay at the hospital at least for 1 night. The surgeons will cut around your nipple to remove extra skin, tissue and fat.
The first thing you should do is take a consultation with your physician, review your medical background and talk about the expected outcomes. You will take a mammogram and breast exam before the surgery and may have to quit some medications such as taking Aspirin, Aleve or Motrin. If you smoke, your doctor will suggest you to quit for a while before the surgery in order to achieve the best possible result.
You have to take at least one or two weeks off work and may have to wear a surgical bra. In order to remove stitches and bandages, it’s necessary to follow up weekly appointments.
