About
Breast Reduction Surgery

Perfect and proportional breasts are every woman’s dream. However, many women are born with a much larger breast size than is suitable for their body type. One may think that this is a dream but it is a nightmare! There are many reasons like hormonal issues and genetics, which result in women having heavier breasts that are out of proportion with the overall body. 

Women with extremely large breasts are in immense physical pain and feel frustrated and traumatized due to them. Having such disproportionately large breasts also affects their day-to-day lives. They have trouble finding properly fitting clothes and bras. Large breasts also get in the way of physical activities like running, exercising, etc. They try all sorts of things to reduce their cup size like breast reduction creams, medicines, and pills. But most of these are not solutions to the problem. At Vanity Cosmetic Clinic, Dr. Santosh Bhatia performs a simple and effective procedure called “Breast Reduction Surgery” which solves this problem forever while also leaving the patient with beautiful, aesthetically pleasing smaller-sized breasts.

What is
breast reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and tissue from the breasts to have properly proportioned breasts. It is also often referred to as reduction mammoplasty.

Dr. Santosh Bhatia, a Board-certified, well-known Mumbai based Plastic Surgeon explains that this surgery is a safe and effective way to get rid of all the issues that come due to extremely large breasts.

What are
the problems associated with overly large breasts?

Sometimes, women tend to have massive breasts. This issue is also called gigantomastia. Having heavier breasts results in back pain, shoulder pain,and arm pain. Women with gigantomastia are prone to skin inflammatory reactions since the breast skin constantly rubs against the abdominal wall or the chest wall. They also create a hurdle for the woman to engage in vigorous exercise or heavy physical activities thus affecting her health adversely.

Having heavier breasts not only affects physical health, but also psychological well-being. As it becomes difficult for women to get relevant-sized clothes and bras, they can develop inferiority – complex regarding their looks and appearance. Breast reduction surgery helps them deal with these problems and improve their lives.

How to
reduce breast size?

Women with large breasts try many different ideas to reduce their breast size. “How to reduce breast size” and “how to reduce cup size” are very common search terms on Google. Women will try diets to reduce chest fat, take supplements, pills, or medicines to regulate their hormones. Some people even use chest binders to make their breasts appear smaller. These days there are even breast reduction creams! But there is no definitive proof that any of these methods help reduce breast size. These so-called “quick fixes” like medicines, breast reduction cream, and pills rarely work. The safest and most efficient way to reduce breast size and get proportionate breasts is through breast reduction surgery. 

Some women try to reduce breast size at home through regular exercise. Regular full-body workouts can reduce breast fat, but it takes a long time. It is also not possible for everyone to regularly follow a strict exercise regimen. And even with a strict exercise regimen, not all the breast fat may burn. It is very common for there to be areas with stubborn fat. Another problem with using exercise to reduce breast size is when one loses a lot of weight, one must deal with loose and saggy skin. The breasts may also lose their perkiness. Breast reduction surgery removes the excess fat, tissue, and skin, and so the breasts not only become smaller but also firmer.

With breast reduction surgery, women can get breasts they are comfortable with much faster than with exercise.

How is
breast reduction surgery performed at vanity cosmetic clinic?

There are certain methodologies through which breast reduction surgery is performed. The two involve:

  1. Breast reduction surgery through incisions
  2. Breast reduction surgery through liposuction

Breast reduction through a simple incision is the most common method used for breast reduction surgery. In rare cases, Dr. Santosh Bhatia may opt for liposuction during the surgery. Liposuction is performed only if the breast tissue/fat is excessive to the point where removal through incisions will not deliver best results. Otherwise, liposuction is not performed in conventional breast reduction surgery.

In the conventional method, breast reduction surgery is performed through the following incisions:

After breast reduction surgery, the patient has to stay at the clinic for one night to keep a check on the healing process and monitor the vitals.
