The Purpose of Drains After Breast Reduction Surgery

San Francisco, California-Drainage tubes are placed at the end of several different major types of cosmetic plastic surgery, including but not limited to: gynecomastia (male breast reduction), tummy tuck surgeryand breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty. The purpose of a drain is to remove blood and lymphatic fluid from the operative site. This will help prevent infection and eliminate dead space created by removal of fat and breast tissue. Removing the accumulated fluids will also promote healing and recovery. Jackson Pratt is the type of drain used after breast reduction surgery.

Most men have true gynecomastia which is caused by fat and breast tissue, which requires surgical excision and liposuction. However, for the man that only has fat causing his man boobs, CoolSculpting may be an option.

She underwent an inverted T free nipple breast reduction due to the extreme size of her breasts. She is seen four months after surgery with early healing, but note the nice size and shape of her breasts. She went from GGG to a D cup.   It is very possible to achieve the desired size breasts with breast reduction surgery. For most women, the main goal is to have enough tissue removed to alleviate the symptoms caused by large breasts, i.e., shoulder, back and neck pain. Another issue women have is that they want to be able to buy clothes “off the rack. In addition, another major concern is how shapely will the new breasts be and how visible are the resulting scars? Some women are so frustrated with their large breasts they ask for the extreme of having them removed, as in a mastectomy. However, it needs to be stated that for a drastic reduction the
