Most women experience saggy breas-ts (medically termed as breas-t ptosis) when they get older. Other than aging, the breas-t may also sag because of gravity, high body mass index, deficiency of collagen and hormone estrogen, menopause, rapid weight fluctuations, multiple pregnancies, and smoking. Some females may also suffer from symptomatic macromastia wherein they develop enlarged breasts. Heavy breasts can lead to pain in the shoulder, back, or neck areas, skin rashes under the breasts, a poor body posture, psychological or emotional discomfort including depression and anxiety, a struggle in finding well-fitting clothes, and even cause troubled breathing. With breas-t reduction surgery performed by an expert plastic and cosmetic surgeon in Abu Dhabi like Dr. Parag Telang one can achieve the desired breas-t shape and best outcomes.
Breas-t reduction (medically termed as reduction mammoplasty) is a cosmetic surgery procedure to reduce the breas-t size, volume, and weight to make it appear smaller, well-shaped, lighter, and uplifted for the long term. It focuses on the removal of surplus breas-t tissues including excess skin and fat and reshaping or raising of dropping nipples to ultimately get an aesthetically pleasing breas-t shape.

The overall procedure may take about 2 to 3 hours.

4. Post-procedure and recovery: Following the surgery, the patient is shifted to a recovery room where the nursing staff would make sure that the patient is conscious and is safe to return home. To go back home, there must be a caretaker for at least 24 hours. For the first few days, the new smaller breas-ts may feel tender and sensitive, and in some cases swollen or bruised. In a matter of days, all the slight discomfort caused by surgery may subside and the patient may return to daily routine after a week of the surgery.
Generally, full recovery may take three to four weeks. The final settled breas-t shape of breas-ts can be seen after 6 weeks of the breas-t reduction which can be confirmed by the final check-up of the surgeon. The breas-ts usually heal at different rates, hence they may appear asymmetrical for the first few months of recovery.
