Breast Reduction in Phang Nga

Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce the size of large breasts. This procedure can remove excess skin, fat, and breast tissue. Numerous factors determine a women’s breast size, including genes, weight, hormones, and body frame. A woman with large, heavy breasts can experience significant discomforts, such as neck pain, back pain, and numbness. The uncomfortable feeling and pain can make it difficult for women to take part in active physical activities such as running or doing any sports. Men with gynecomastia can also undergo a breast reduction. Gynecomastia is a condition where male breasts are abnormally enlarged.

Before the surgery, you may need to complete various medical tests, get a baseline mammogram, stop smoking, and avoid any anti-inflammatory drugs. You will be given general anesthesia during the surgery. There are several techniques to perform a breast reduction. Your surgeon will make an incision around the nipple and down each breast. Then, they will remove excess tissue, skin, and fat to reduce the size of the breast. After this, the breasts will be reshaped and the nipple will be repositioned and the surgeon will close the incision with stitches.

A breast reduction can be performed in an outpatient facility or the hospital. The procedure takes around two to five hours to complete. You may need to stay at least one night in the hospital so your condition can be monitored. After being discharged, stay in the Phang Nga for 14 more days because you will need to attend regular checkups. The total recovery period can take several months, but you should be able to go back to work after two weeks. Normally, you will need to wear a surgical bra for at least a month after the surgery. The success rate of breast reduction is high, 80% of women said they were satisfied with the results.
