The technique consists of extirpating the excess skin, breast tissue and adipose tissue. The type of incision, and consequently, the resulting scars must be evaluated on an individual case basis.

The majority of the discomfort is alleviated by medication prescribed by the doctor, although discomfort may last up to a couple weeks.
The patient should wear the bra we provide continuously for the first 3 weeks.
The stitches are reabsorbed on their own, which is why it is not necessary to remove them; inflammation will not subside completely until up to 3 to 6 weeks.
After undergoing the breast reduction surgery, patients can go back to work in 2 to 3 days, and in just a few days will be practically ready to resume normal activity.
Strong physical activity should be limited during the first 3 weeks.
Strong physical contact with breasts should be avoided for the first 3 to 4 weeks.
Scars will initially be really good quality due to the meticulous methods when performing the sutures, although they will resume their normal maturation process post-surgery, due to which they will have a reddish color for 3-6 months in order to work up to the point of their eventual reduction in size until they are practically unnoticeable at 12-18 months.
