BREAST REDUCTION; THE OLDER YOU ARE, THE GREATER THE COMPLICATION RATE

Complications, i.e. infections, following breast reduction surgery are more common in women older than 50.


Women over 50 also had more wound healing problems (remember SMOKING greatly increases wound healing problems). These increased rates of infection/wound healing may be due to declining hormone levels.


My experience with breast reduction shows very low levels of infection. For more information, check my Fort Myers Plastic Surgeon website at Beauty-by-Brueck.com


When I was a young resident, patients spent DAYS in the hospital. Now they come in around 7 am and are home for lunch. My how things have changed.
