The decision to have breast reduction surgery is extremely personal. You will have to decide if the benefits will achieve your goals and if the risks of breast reduction surgery and potential complications are acceptable. Your plastic surgeon and/or plastic surgery staff will explain in detail the risks associated with surgery. You will be asked to sign consent forms to ensure that you fully understand the procedure you will undergo and any risks or potential complications.
. Allergies to tape, suture materials and glues, blood products, topical preparations or injectable agents
. Anesthesia risks
. Bleeding (hematoma)
. Blood clots
. Breast asymmetry
. Breast contour and shape irregularities
. Changes in nipple or breast sensation, which may be temporary or permanent
. Damage to deeper structures – such as nerves, blood vessels, muscles and lungs – can occur and may be temporary or permanent
. Deep vein thrombosis, cardiac and pulmonary complications
. Excessive firmness of the breast
. Fatty tissue deep in the skin could die (fat necrosis)
. Fluid accumulation
. Pain, which may persist
. Poor wound healing
. Possibility of revisional surgery
. Potential inability to breastfeed
. Potential loss of skin/tissue of breast where incisions meet each other
. Potential, partial or total loss of nipple and areola
. Skin discoloration, permanent pigmentation changes, swelling and bruising
. Unfavorable scarring
You should know that:
. Breast reduction surgery can interfere with certain diagnostic procedures
. Breast and nipple piercing can cause an infection
. Your ability to breastfeed following reduction mammaplasty may be limited; talk to your doctor if you are planning to nurse a baby
. The breast reduction procedure can be performed at any age, but is best done when your breasts are fully developed
. Changes in the breasts during pregnancy can alter the outcomes of previous breast reduction surgery, as can significant weight fluctuations
The practice of medicine and surgery is not an exact science. Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee. In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single breast reduction procedure and another surgery may be necessary.
If you have unrealistic expectations or are experiencing severe mental distress then this surgery might not be appropriate for you. If you are prone to poor wound healing or the formation of angry, red scars called ‘keloids’ then your surgeon might not be keen for you to undergo surgery. If you are able to have surgery then he/she will warn you that you are likely to have raised, visible scars.
However, your surgeon is the best one to decide upon your suitability for surgery. He/she will assess your physical and general health as well as your reasons for surgery. There are strict guidelines regarding cosmetic surgery which are designed to safeguard you and your surgeon. The last thing he/she wants is for you to undergo a surgical procedure which may not be beneficial or good for your health.
