The Breast Reduction procedure, also referred to as mammoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure to decrease breast size, restore symmetry and help to reduce neck and shoulder pain in patients who live with discomfort due to breast size. A breast reduction can improve your posture and enable you to exercise as well as enhance your overall appearance and wellbeing.
Some of the indications that you may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery in Sydney could include the following:
The ideal candidate for the Breast Reduction surgery is a woman who is over the age of 18. She should be in good physical and mental health. Patients should have realistic expectations from the surgery. It is suggested that those who are smokers stop smoking at least 6 weeks prior to the surgery. It’s also recommended that patients avoid alcohol prior to and after the surgery, and also stop taking any supplements that many have the potential for causing complications during the procedure and the recovery phase.
An important consideration is to ensure that your weight has been stable for at least 6 months. Weight gain can have an impact on the size of your breasts, so it is important to ensure you are at your goal weight and can maintain that weight.
During your consultation, Dr. Elfieshawy will explain to you what needs to be accomplished in order for you to be eligible for the procedure.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Elfieshawy, you will have the opportunity to discuss the concerns you have about your large breasts. You’ll have the chance to discuss the size that you think would be ideal for your frame.
Dr. Elfieshawy will conduct a physical examination and review your complete medical history.
Cosmetic surgery is highly individualised, so each factor unique to you will be taken into consideration when your surgery is being planned. No two surgeries are alike, and Dr. Elfieshawy will use his experience and talents to ensure that your results help you to meet your cosmetic goals.
During your consultation with Dr. Elfieshawy, he will discuss the procedure and potential risks involved with the surgery. He will also ensure you have realistic expectations from the surgery, while also covering what may be expected during the recovery process.
Each patient will be provided with a preoperative checklist that will cover each of the steps that needs to be accomplished prior to the surgery. This could include ensuring a healthy diet and workout routine so you are in great shape on the day of your surgery. Any supplements and medications that may potentially lead to complications during surgery should be stopped.
Preparing for your surgery will also mean making sure that you have help at home during the recovery phase. You’ll be unable to raise your arms or care for your personal needs for at least the first week after your surgery.
During your consultation with Dr. Elfieshawy he will discuss the techniques he uses for the Breast Reduction procedure. He will also discuss the scars that may be possible after the surgery. There will be scarring after the Breast Reduction surgery, and they may look very dark right after your surgery. They will fade as they heal, and there are also creams that can be used to further encourage scar fading.
The results of the Reduction procedure will be felt and seen almost immediately after surgery. Many patients report feeling an instant weight off of their shoulders and neck when they wake up after surgery. There is likely to be bruising and swelling after the surgery, but it will fade as the breasts heal. Once the swelling subsides, within a few weeks, the true results of the surgery will be seen.
