For many women, breast reduction in Mexico is not just a cosmetic procedure. Resultant of excessive weight, very large breasts can cause an extensive range of medical issues to arise. Health trepidations regarding large breasts can include back and neck pain, indentations from bra straps in the shoulders, skin irritation, skeletal deformities and breathing difficulties.

The weight of excess breast tissue can damage your ability to lead an active life and produced undesired attention. The emotional discomfort and health issues that arise are only linked to physical discomfort and pain.

Breast Reduction Risks and Safety Information

The decision to have breast reduction surgery is a decision that you should weight carefully. You will have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks of breast reduction surgery and potential complications are acceptable.

The risks of breast reduction and breast reduction complications include infection, bleeding, blood clots, anesthesia risks, poor wound healing, skin discoloration, asymmetry, fluid accumulation, excessive firmness in the breast region, potential inability to breastfeed, breast shape irregularities, change in nipple sensation, pain, fat necrosis and possibility of revision surgery.

Breast Reduction Procedural Steps

Breast reduction surgery in Mexico can take anywhere from two to five hours. During the procedure, liposuction may be used to remove excess fat from the armpit area. Incision placement, which determines the appearance of scars, is dependent upon the size of your breasts and your desired size decrease.

Medications are administered for your comfort during breast reduction surgery. The choices include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia.

Breast reduction surgery is usually performed through incisions on your breasts which include a circular pattern around the areola, a keyhole or racquet-shaped pattern with an incision around the areola and vertically down to the breast crease or an inverted T or anchor-shaped incision pattern.

After the incision is made, the nipple region is relocated. The areola is reduced by excising skin at the perimeter and the underlying breast tissue is condensed, lifted and shaped.

Sutures are layered deep within the breast tissue to create and support the newly shaped breasts; sutures, skin adhesives and/or surgical tape close the skin. Incision lines are permanent, but in most cases will fade and considerably advance over time.

Breast Reduction Recovery

Recovery from surgery usually requires 7 to 10 days with ongoing return to activities over a period of 4 to 6 weeks. Once you have recovered from surgery, you can begin to enjoy an active lifestyle that is not limited by your body. Neck and back pain may dissolve and you can enjoy more athletic, active activities than you may have been able to in the past.

When your breast reduction procedure is complete, dressings or bandages will be applied to the incisions. An elastic bandage or support bra may be worn to minimize swelling and support the breasts as they heal. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect.
