expertly remove excess breast tissue

Breast Reduction

Acknowledging the Struggle: In Kenya, breast reduction stands out as one of the most frequently sought-after plastic surgery procedures, addressing both cosmetic concerns and the physical strain experienced by many women. The challenges of large breasts often manifest in chronic back, shoulder, and breast pain, significantly impacting daily activities and exercise routines. Whether it's the persistent discomfort caused by bra straps or the pursuit of relief through orthopedic consultations, the need for a change is long overdue.

Causes and Considerations: The development of macromastia, or excessively large breasts, varies, with many women experiencing it during puberty or pregnancy. Genetic factors contribute, with a familial predisposition to larger breast sizes. Regardless of the cause, the definitive solution lies in breast reduction surgery, where excess breast tissue is expertly removed and the breasts reconstructed to a size agreed upon with our experienced plastic surgeon.

The Procedure: Conducted as a day care procedure under General Anesthesia, breast reduction typically spans 2-3 hours. Utilizing a short or vertical scar reduction approach, incisions are strategically placed around each areola and vertically down the breast. Removal of glandular tissue, fat, and skin results in breasts that are not only smaller but also lighter and firmer. In some cases, liposuction of the armpit region complements the procedure, restoring a more natural breast contour.

Recovery Journey: Post-surgery, patients may experience some pain and discomfort for a few days to a week, alleviated by prescribed medications. Gauze dressings and a surgical bra aid in protecting the breasts, with temporary insertion of small drainage tubes. Stitches and bandages are removed in due time, with a typical return to work after two weeks, wearing a surgical bra until bruising and swelling subside.

Post-Surgery Experience: During recovery, patients may encounter temporary sensations like shooting pains or loss of nipple sensitivity, typically subsiding within six weeks. Relief from back and shoulder pain, coupled with enhanced physical and aesthetic benefits, makes the breast reduction procedure at Refine Plastic Surgery transformative.
