Breast Reduction & Lifting
BREAST REDUCTION AND LIFTING (PLUS INTERNAL BRA)
Women with large breasts often must put up with persistent pain and discomfort as well as discomfort with their appearance. Some women complain of neck strain, headaches, aching shoulders, low back pain, chronic infections under the breast fold, and other problems associated with large breasts.
Whether you wish to alleviate those symptoms or reshape your breasts to make them more pleasing to you, breast reduction, also called reduction mammaplasty, can help. In fact, breast reduction surgery has one of the highest rates of satisfaction of all cosmetic surgery procedures. Many times, health insurance will cover this procedure if you meet certain criteria.
The procedure, which takes 3-4 hours, removes breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to create a breast size that is proportionate to your body, alleviating the symptoms that cause pain and discomfort. This is procedure generally requires an overnight stay. It is likely that you will be given general anesthesia to put you to sleep during the procedure.
Because it is a major procedure, you can expect recovery to take some time. Your doctor will prescribe pain medication for the days immediately following the procedure. Swelling and minor bruising are normal, and this will generally subside in a few weeks. For a day or two after the surgery, you will wear a special surgical bra or elastic bandage. You will probably need to continue wearing the bra or bandage or another type of support bra for several weeks.
INTERNAL TITANIUM BRA
Since almost 12 years I am inserting a titanium mesh as an internal BRA out of titanized polypropylene- a mixed mesh and it is used in Germany mainly in inguinal and abdominal hernia repair which shows no foreign body reactions in compare to other mesh grafts. This so called internal titanium bra will be suspended to the pectoralis muscle, sternal bone and to the ripcage. The surgery is performed in semi-sitting position. Today’s mammaplasty techniques have greatly reduced scarring but positive long term results are still missing. In my opinion the internal titanium bra breast lift has proven itself to be a valued benefit to patients suffering from mild forms of ptosis (Sagging).
