Do you want your breasts to be in better proportion with your body? Breast reduction is a plastic surgery procedure to remove excess tissue, fat, and skin from the breasts. Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction may be an option to ease discomfort caused by overly large breasts, increase your ability to participate in physical activities, and achieve a more proportionate breast size.
Will I Need Time Off Work for a Breast Reduction?
You may need at least a week or two away from work after breast reduction surgery, depending on the nature of your job. This procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient surgical facility. Specific techniques used to reduce your breasts can vary, depending on individual needs. They are likely to involve surgery through incisions to remove excess fat. When you return home after the procedure, your breasts will be bandaged.
