Frequently asked Questions
Here are a few points that may answer your questions about Rhinoplasty, to help you make an informed decision before opting for it.
Typically, women who have physical symptoms related to the weight or shape of their breasts such as back pain, neck pain, and bra strap grooves in the shoulders.
The incisions vary based on the breast size before the operation and the final post-operative size. Short scar techniques are frequently applicable in breast reduction surgery that have good results and limited incision.
In some cases, where the breasts are very large, the nipple and areola may need to be surgically removed and reapplied as a graft. This can result in the loss of nipple sensation and the inability to breastfeed.
The anesthesia selected depends on the size of the breasts, type of anesthesia selected, and length of the surgical procedure. The procedure is typically performed under general anesthesia in addition to local anesthesia. Intravenous sedation is used for smaller reduction, without the need for general anesthesia. The procedure may be done as an outpatient or inpatient care with a night stay at the hospital.
Though side effects may include prolonged swelling and delayed healing, some of the associated risk factors are :
- Unfavorable scarring,
- Loss of – nipple sensation, ability to breastfeed, nipple and breast tissue
- Unsatisfactory shape and aesthetic goals.
Typically recovery is observed in one to two weeks, when patients can perform their normal activities during that period. Strenuous physical activities must be avoided for three to six weeks after the surgery. Your breasts will take about six months to acquire their new shape.
It depends on the type of facelift surgery, the person’s general condition, and other factors that include:
- Implants if required

- Prescription medication cost
- Anesthetist and Surgeon’s fee
