For our next vlog series we look at the shape of breasts and if the shape of them change post breast reduction surgery. As there is a removal of tissue, patients may wonder if or how the shape of their breasts will change post breast reduction. Of course, every circumstance will change but this video will provide further details of the ways they can possibly change.
Breast reduction surgery involves the reduction of breast tissue in order for the breasts to appear smaller. There are several elements involved with breast reduction surgery including scars around the areola, and at least a vertical line present. There is also a fold incision required with an inframammary scar present. The inframammary scar can be used to elevate the fold up the chest wall. This is often a priority in particular for patients that have low breasts with low folds.
In the case study provided, the patient has low breasts with a low fold. A breast lift and reduction have taken place in this case with the low fold being a priority. The areola complex has also been lifted up the chest wall. The images showing the results 6 weeks post breast reduction shows equality in the shape of the breasts due to the elevation of the fold. They also appear to have a more natural look and the fold appears to have settled.
For a natural look, this should be expected to happen around 6-12 month post breast reduction. If you’d like more information on breast reduction surgery then you can get in touch by contacting us here or by calling 0161 401 4064. You can also visit our breast reduction case study page.
