Results After Breast Reduction
Although much of the swelling and bruising will disappear in the first few weeks, it may be six months before your breasts settle into their new shape. The final results should represent appropriately reduced breasts that are rounder in shape, perkier, and lifted. Even then, their shape may fluctuate in response to your hormonal shifts, weight changes, and pregnancy.
Dr. Agha will make every effort to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible. Breast reduction scars often remain lumpy and red for months, and then gradually become less obvious, sometimes eventually fading to thin white lines. Fortunately, the scars can usually be placed so that you can wear even low-cut tops.
Of all plastic surgery procedures, breast reduction results in the quickest body-image changes. You’ll be rid of the physical discomfort of large breasts, your body will look better proportioned, and clothes will fit you better.
However, as much as you may have desired these changes, you’ll need time to adjust to your new image-as will your family and friends. Be patient with yourself, and with them. Keep in mind why you had this surgery, and chances are that, like most women, you’ll be pleased with the results.
