Breast reduction surgery in Mumbai or reduction mammoplasty is a procedure by which we can reduce the size of your breast by removing glandular tissue and skin to achieve a firm and attractive breast.

During breast reduction surgery in Mumbai
Breast reduction is always performed under anesthesia and the operation takes about 90 minutes. Before surgery, incision markings are made on the breasts. For the best result and symmetry, all the tissue that is removed during the operation is weighed.
When the removal of the tissue itself is carried out, the wounds are sewn together. Partly with a thread that the body itself dissolves after about 4-8 weeks, and partly with a nylon thread at the edge of the skin. The nylon thread is removed at the clinic after about 10 days.
After your breast reduction
After surgery, the scars should be taped for at least six months for the best possible result. Wound drainage is placed in the breasts to remove blood and fluid. These drains can be removed on the same day as your surgery or the following day.
As standard procedure, the removed breast tissue is sent for microscopic analysis. A tape dressing is laid over the breasts.
Then you should have bought a sturdy sports bra to be used around the clock for 1 month and another month in the daytime. Sports bras can be purchased at the hospital.
The pain after a breast reduction is minimal or moderate and pain relief is taken if necessary. Post-checks take place 2-3 times in the first year after your surgery.

Post-checks take place 2-3 times in the first year after your operation.
When it comes to breast reduction, there are several different techniques, but all of them entail certain scarring.
Scars around the areola and in the natural crease under the chest
The most common technique produces scars around the areola, vertically underneath and in the natural crease under the chest (so-called anchor incisions). After breast reduction surgery in Mumbai, the scars are red but fade after a few months. The scars are narrow and discreet, but in some patients, they may be perceived as more powerful. Breast reduction can affect the sensation in the breasts. The loss of sensation is usually transient, but there are patients who have a permanent loss of sensation.
The ability to breastfeed can be affected after a procedure and the risk of not being able to breastfeed is usually estimated at 50%.
FAQ – Breast Reduction
How is my life affected after a breast reduction?
If you are bothered by pain as a cause of a large bust, your life will be greatly affected by a breast reduction. You may have previously had problems moving physically but also experienced pains in the neck, shoulders and thoracic spine. Through a narrowing of the breasts, breast tissue is removed, which makes the heaviness that previously caused pain disappear. Many people who undergo a breast reduction experience an increased quality of life.
