You take care of yourself, eating a balanced diet and getting regular exercise to maintain a healthy body weight. However, there is one part of your body that you may not be able to control: your breasts.
Your breasts may not be in proportion with the rest of your figure due to aging and the effects of pregnancy. As a result, you could have to deal with too much weight on your chest on a daily basis and breasts that droop too low, resulting in a stiff neck, sore shoulders, and aching back. A breast lift paired with breast reduction may help you address the problem.
Why Combine a Breast Lift with a Breast Reduction?
If your breasts are too large for your body, a breast reduction may lead to the removal of excess skin, fat, and tissue, but it may not solve the issue of hanging down too low. In order to give your breasts a more perky appearance, tissue can be shaped and tightened to lift your breasts. Your breasts could be reduced to a size that is more manageable, have a more attractive appearance, and you may no longer be plagued with pain from the strain of too much weight on your chest.
Knowing What to Expect During Your Procedure
You may not need an overnight stay when you come in for a procedure that combines breast reduction with a breast lift. Intravenous sedation, anesthesia, or a combination of both could be used during your surgery. Incisions may be made in your breasts around or below the areola to remove excess. The breast is lifted and your incisions closed.
Bandages and a support bra are provided. A support bra could bear the weight of your breasts and reduce your pain. You may need to have someone with you for 24 hours after your surgery to assist you. Specific instructions concerning proper care of your incisions, any activities you should avoid, may be provided and medication may be prescribed for the pain.
