This lady has underwent a breast reduction to decrease her symptoms of neck pain, shoulder pain and discomfort of the excess weight. Breast reduction can not only improve these symptoms but can also help to improve the aesthetic shape. This lady has healed well at 6 weeks and the scars will continue to improve. For large reductions patients need to weigh up the pros and cons of free nipple grafting and keeping the blood supply intact. Keeping the blood supply intact may limit the size of reduction but will allow a better chance of keeping the normal nipple sensation.
When considering breast reduction it is important to consider the pros and cons of breast augmentation with breast implants and the use of autologous fat transfer. In this scenario, the main issue was related to the functional issues associated with excess weight and breast implants and fat transfer were not a priority.
At a consultation, it is important to run through all the pros and cons and the various options of breast rejuvenation surgery so that you can be empowered to proceed.
