Results of Chicago Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery will make your breasts smaller and firmer. Without the excessive weight of large breasts, you may find greater enjoyment in playing sports and engaging in physical activity.
The incisions from your breast reduction surgery will heal and fade over time. It is important to realize, however, that the incision lines will be permanently visible, more so in some individuals than others. Fortunately, the incisions for breast reduction are in locations easily concealed by clothing, even low-cut necklines.
Breast reduction often
makes a dramatic change in your appearance. For this reason, it may take some
time to adjust to your new body image. Most women, however, eventually become
comfortable with their smaller breasts and feel very pleased with the results of
surgery. In fact, the level of patient satisfaction resulting from breast
reduction is among the highest of any plastic surgery procedure.
Unless you gain or lose a significant amount of weight or become pregnant, your breast size should remain fairly constant. However, gravity and the effects of aging will eventually alter the size and shape of virtually every woman's breasts. If, after a period of years, you become dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may choose to undergo a breast "lifting" procedure to restore their more youthful contour.
Post Surgical Care
The results of your breast reduction can be maintained with the use of certain clinical skin care products. Dr. Speron recommends neaclear Liquid Oxygen Anti-Aging Body Lotion and neaclearplus Liquid Oxygen Rejuvenating Body Scrub to help smooth the skin and keep it youthful. To reduce the appearance of post surgical scars, he also recommends neaclearplus Liquid Oxygen Scar Advantage.
Maintaining a Relationship with Your Plastic Surgeon
You will return to your plastic surgeon's office for follow-up care at prescribed intervals, at which time your progress will be evaluated. Once the immediate postoperative follow-up is complete, many surgeons encourage their patients to come back for periodic checkups to observe and discuss the long-term results of surgery.
Please remember that the relationship with your plastic surgeon does not end when you leave the operating room. If you have questions or concerns during your recovery, or need additional information at a later time, you should contact your surgeon.
