A breast reduction in Mexicali can be an effective solution for women as well as men with disproportionately large breasts. In addition, to self-image problems, overly large breasts can cause a number of health issues, including back pain and neck pain. The excess weight related to large breasts can make it difficult to lead an active life. Along with physical pain, overly large breasts can also cause other problems, including skin irritation under the breast crease and even indentations in the shoulders from bra straps.
While a breast reduction surgery is most commonly associated with women, men can also benefit from this procedure, as well. Breast reduction may be a good option for men and women who are physically healthy, have realistic expectations, and who are bothered by the feeling their breasts are disproportionately large.

Upon your arrival in Mexicali for a breast reduction, you will meet with your physician, who will discuss your medical history with you as well as why you are seeking a breast reduction. During your consultation, your doctor may measure your breasts and take photos while also discussing the amount of tissue to be removed to achieve your goals.
Breast reduction surgery is typically performed under general anesthesia. Your physician will make several incisions in the breasts, making it possible to remove excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin. Liposuction may be necessary to remove large amounts of excess skin and fatty tissue. Additionally, the surgeon may reduce, lift, and shape underlying breast tissue. If necessary, the areola may be reduced by removing skin along the perimeter. Finally, the surgeon will reposition the nipple. Incisions will be closed with sutures deep inside the breast tissue to assist in supporting your newly shaped breasts. Adhesives and/or surgical tape will be used for closing the incisions. Patients are generally able to see immediate results following a breast reduction procedure. Post-surgical swelling will resolve over time, and incisions will fade.
You should expect to take a minimum of one week off from work following a breast reduction surgery. Some people find they need to take off two weeks. Depending on the nature of your occupation, you may need to take off even more time from work. During your recovery time, you should cease physical activity, including heavy lifting for a minimum of one month following your procedure. Expect to experience some breast pain and discomfort after your surgery. You may also feel tired. Your doctor may prescribe oral painkillers to help alleviate discomfort.
