Breast reduction procedure
The most common method used by plastic surgery doctors in breast reduction involves three incisions. First one is made around the areola, another runs vertically from the bottom edge of the areola to the crease underneath the breast. The third incision follows the natural curve of the breast crease.
After the surgeon has removed excess breast tissue, fat and skin, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position. The areola, which in large breasts are usually stretched, can also be reduced in size. Skin that was located above the nipple is brought down and joined in order to reshape the breast.
Liposuction may then be used to improve the contour under the arm. Usually, the nipples and areola remain attached to underlying mounds of tissue, and this allows for the preservation of sensation.
The ability to breastfeed may also be preserved by this method, although this cannot be guaranteed in all cases. Skin that was located above the nipple is brought down together to reshape the breast.

Recovering from breast reduction surgery
After breast reduction surgery, you will be wrapped in an elastic bandage or a surgical bra over dressings. The doctor may place small drainage tube in each breast to drain off blood and fluids for the first day or two. The bandages will be removed a day or two following breast reduction surgery. You’ll continue wearing the surgical bra around the clock for several weeks, until the swelling and bruising fade. Sutures will be dissolvable and will be clipped to skin level on first follow-up visit. Expect to feel some pain for the first couple of days—especially when you make an effort or cough. The surgeon will most likely prescribe medication to relieve the pain. Your plastic surgeon will give you thorough post-surgical instructions for resuming your normal activities. Most women can return to work and social activities after two weeks. You should limit your activities, especially stretching, bending—or any strenuous chore—until your energy level returns. You will also need to have a good athletic bra for support. A small amount of fluid draining from the surgical wound, or some crusting is common and quite normal.
