Having more beautiful breasts does not necessarily mean having bigger breasts. It's all about shape and proportion, and a cosmetic surgeon of the highest caliber such as Dr. Charalambos Lemonas can improve both using breast reduction techniques tailored to a patient's unique needs.
Breast reduction surgery is done to change the size, weight, firmness, and shape of the breasts. Most women choose it to feel more comfortable (heavy breasts can cause back and neck pain, skin irritation and posture problems), to reduce the limitations that large and heavy breasts place on participation in sports or other activities and to alter their appearance as large breasts (especially when they are out of proportion to your height and weight) can be embarrassing. Moreover, many teenagers and young women with large breasts may feel self-conscious wearing swimsuits and other types of clothing due to the unwelcome attention large breasts attract.
A breast reduction cosmetic operation in Belgravia Medical Centre will leave you extremely satisfied. It can make your breasts not only smaller but firmer, lighter and more evenly proportioned as well. Additionally, it usually relieves the physical discomfort and pain associated with large breasts. The results of breast reduction surgery are considered to be permanent.
Is it the right procedure for me?
You should consider breast reduction if your breasts:
- Cause back, neck or shoulder pain
- Cause regular indentations from your bra straps
- Cause skin irritation beneath the breast crease
- Limit your physical activity
- Are too large in proportion to your body
- Are pendulous and hang downward
- Have enlarged areolas caused by stretched skin
Before breast reduction
Dr. Lemonas believes in transparency and takes your health seriously.
During your initial consultation, our team of plastic surgeons describes in detail and discusses in length the breast reduction cosmetic surgery with you. We listen to your preferences, evaluate them and ensure that your wishes are compatible with your lifestyle and medical history. It goes without saying that during initial consultation our team of experts will answer every question you might have.
Initial consultation includes topics such as discussion on your desires and expectations, medical conditions and allergies, use of medication, alcohol and tobacco and previous surgeries.
Afterwards, your personal plastic surgeon will evaluate your general health status, discuss the options available to you and the likely outcomes, examine and measure your body and show you before and after photographs of past patients who have undergone the same surgery as the one you want. This way to ensure that you have a complete understanding of the results you will attain.
After the procedure
You are not taking your journey to self confidence, youth and beauty alone. Dr. Lemonas and his team support you 100% before, during and after your procedure. Your preoperative visit takes place one week before surgery and during it we will provide you a handout with specific instructions to follow after the operation. These include postoperative care at home and prescriptions for medications.
Most women are able to return to work about one week after their surgery, although each patient recovers differently. You should refrain from strenuous physical activity in the two to three weeks following the procedure. Some scarring is unavoidable but Dr. Lemonas ensures that surgical incisions are made to be inconspicuous and that scars will fade over time. The results of breast reduction surgery will be immediately visible and long lasting.
