Operations aimed at reducing the mammary glands are in no less demand than breast augmentation surgery. Every woman has her own reasons for taking this important and responsible step.
Too large breasts sometimes look not only unaesthetic, ugly, but can also contribute to poor posture, pain in the spine and other problems. But there may be certain complications after the operation. What are they?
Any surgical intervention in the mammary gland can lead to the loss of the ability to breastfeed the baby in the future. This largely depends on how the operation will be performed, but it is best to carry out the operation after the baby is born. It will be possible to plan a pregnancy within 1-2 years after the breast reduction surgery.
After the baby is born, if you breastfeed, it will increase slightly again, but do not be afraid, since this is a temporary phenomenon, and after the baby is weaned from the breast, after a few months it will return to its previous form.
If after the operation you are unhappy with the shape of the breast, you can carry out a second operation, but not earlier than six months or a year after the previous one, and only if you have already weaned the baby from the breast.
Bleeding can be another complication after surgery. Although this is a fairly rare occurrence, it is still possible. An infection may occur, in which case you need to see a doctor who will prescribe a course of antibiotics. If, after the operation, a firm formation is felt in the chest, then it is necessary to consult a mammologist, he will prescribe a biopsy and other procedures that will determine the formation. For some time after the operation, the full or partial sensitivity of the nipples may disappear, but you should not be afraid of this either, since all this will be restored in a few months.
