After your breast reduction surgery, you will be able to see the results. Although there will be some swelling in the surgical area, over time this dissipates. Incision lines and breast reduction scars are visible but should fade and are usually hidden with a swimsuit or bra. Once these incision lines heal, Dr. Bailey and his staff may recommend non-invasive treatments such as Laser Genesis to lessen these lines.

The results of your breast reduction surgery will be long-lasting. However, your breasts can continue to change due to aging and gravity. You’ll be able to retain your new look longer if you:

  • Maintain your weight
  • Keep a healthy lifestyle

Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no guarantee.  In some situations, it may not be possible to achieve optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be necessary.

Following your physician’s instructions is essential to the success of your surgery. It’s important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself.
