I had cancer & had breast reduction during procedure. There is collegian build up under breast. What is the best way to get rid of collegian?

Scar Tissue is...: ...An inevitable and expected outcome after every operation. Your oncoplastic procedure likely "rearranged" the breast tissue, creating scarring in the area of the lumpectomy and below the areola, along the "inverted t". If you had radiation therapy, this will increase the scarring further. Best bet: ask your surgeon--depending on the timing, breast massage may help. ...Read more

Such recommendations may include the use of silicone-based products and/or injection of steroids directly into the scars. Scars tend to improve/mature over the course of the first year after surgery; scar revision surgery may be helpful also. ...Read more

I have a small breast size. Need to lose hip weight. Will exercising with out bra help prevent breast reduction?

There is no one on the planet like you. Be proud and happy with you! ...Read more

Are there limitations on how small the breast can be made during a breast reduction surgery? I have extremely large breasts and I want to get down to an a cup. Can breast reduction surgery make my breasts this small? .

Ask Plastic surgeon: The question, 'can it be done' is easily answered in the affirmative. But the main concern with someone wanting to be an 'a' cup is that their frame i.e.Chest circumference and width will be relatively too big and they will look flat chested unless they are a size 26-30 inch chest circumference. On average a 34-36 inch chest circ patient needs a 'b' cup volume. So before you get set on a cup'a' see md. ...Read more
