Introduction

Every woman dreams of having perfect breasts. However, having perfect breasts does not always mean bigger breasts. In fact, having disproportionately large breasts causes many problems in day-to-day life. 

Women with overly large breasts are often frustrated and traumatized by them. They suffer from immense back, shoulder, and neck pain and discomfort from an awkward posture. Having large breasts makes it uncomfortable to wear fitting clothes. It also causes problems during physical activities like exercising, jogging, running, etc. Women with large breasts also tend to suffer from rashes on their chest and grooves on their shoulders from their bra straps.

Women who suffer from these problems try all sorts of things to try and reduce their breast size like medicines, pills, creams, etc. But none of them work. The most effective solution to overly large breasts is breast reduction surgery.

What Is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery (also known as “reduction mammoplasty”) is a procedure where a plastic surgeon removes excess fat, tissue, and skin from breasts to form proportioned breasts.

Who Is An Ideal Candidate For Breast Reduction Surgery?

Dr. Vasant Gholave, Director of Arra Aesthetics, has listed down a few criteria for an ideal candidate for breast reduction surgery. They are:

If you fit the above criteria, then you are a good candidate to undergo breast reduction surgery.

What To Expect At The Consultation?

During the consultation for breast reduction surgery, Dr. Vasant Gholave will explain the procedure to the patient in detail. He will discuss the patient’s wishes and desires with them, and decide the methodology of the procedure accordingly. The cost and the possible results of the surgery will be told to the patient, so that patients may make an informed decision.

Dr. Vasant Gholave will also discuss the patient’s medical history with them, and examine their breasts and note down all necessary details. He may advise the patient to undergo a few blood tests and a mammogram, to ensure that there will be no complications during the procedure. His priority is ensuring the patient’s safety and satisfaction with the surgery. 

How Is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed At Arra Aesthetics?

During breast reduction surgery, the surgeon will use general anesthesia or local anesthesia for the patient’s comfort. Then the surgeon will make incisions on the breasts and surgically remove the excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin. The surgeon will move the nipple/areola complex to a higher, more forward position on the chest. 

In some cases, liposuction may be used in conjunction with excision techniques to remove the excess fat. Liposuction is used as the only procedure for breast reduction when the breast size is large mainly due to excess fat. 

What Is The Recovery Process After Breast Reduction Surgery?

The patient will be able to return home the same day as the surgery, after a period of supervised recovery. The chest will be bandaged, and the patient may be given a surgical bra. The patient will be able to get up and walk around after the surgery, though it is recommended for them to have a trusted adult with them for 24 hours after the surgery. The patient will be permitted to shower after the surgery, but since they may not have the full range of motion in their chest and shoulders at first, they may need help getting dressed. 

The patient may see swelling and feel some soreness after the surgery, but that will fade away after a few days. The surgeon may prescribe some painkillers for the patient. Applying ice packs may also help in reducing the soreness.
The amount of time needed to fully recover from breast reduction surgery varies for everyone, based on the individual’s natural healing rate and the extent of the surgery performed. Breasts often heal at different rates, so they may look asymmetrical during the first few months of recovery.

What Are The Results Of Breast Reduction Surgery?

While some patients may find immediate relief from back and shoulder pain after the surgery, other patients may need some time to see the final results of the surgery. Since swelling is common after the surgery, the patient’s breasts may look a bit larger than expected until the initial swelling goes down. 

Breast reduction surgery can be a rewarding cosmetic procedure, as it alleviates the physical and emotional discomfort of the patient and enhances their appearance.

We were based in UK when I had severe burn on my right hand. I was undergoing burn dressing daily almost for 3 months there. But some portion of the wound didn't heal.In between treatment, we relocated to India and the wound was still not fully healed.While searching options on web for my wound healing, I came across the Arra Aesthetics and I came to know about the best laser treatment for wound healing. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave Plastic Surgeon in Pune for my non healing wound and post burn keloid of right hand at Arra Aesthetics. He explained the latest revolutionary Recosma LASER technology for wound and keloid. Although I was tense and worried about my wound, I decided to give it a try for this new laser therapy. To my surprise the wound healed completely by the end of 3rd session which was fron 10 days from my consulting session. The keloid scars have become soft and thin, also reducing in thickness after recosma laser.I am very happy and satisfied with my treatment.Dr. Vasant Gholave is highly experienced plastic surgeon. He is gentle and friendly. The clinic has advanced laser machines and the facility provided is very standard and cleanliness is maintained very much.I had wonderful experiences in Arra clinic . I highly recommend the clinic to people.

I was suffering from excess fat on belly. I consulted Dr. Vasant Gholave, Cosmetic & Plastic Surgeon at Arra Aesthetic, Pune for fat reduction surgery. Initially, I was not sure about what exactly is required, Tummy Tuck or Liposuction. And if at all Liposuction, which technology shall I choose.He explained me everything in details, about options of non-surgical fat reduction VS Liposuction Surgery. He further explained me about different Liposuction Technologies, like Conventional Suction Assisted Liposuction, Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction, Water Jet Liposuction, Power Assisted Liposuction.I chose Laser Lipolysis and underwent the procedure 2 months back. I got flatter tummy and good shape. I am happy with best liposuction result.Thank you sir and I recommend him as he is best Cosmetic Surgeon in Pune.
