Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

At last, a smaller, perkier bust line

Some women find that large breasts are a daily burden, leading to associated problems such as chronic back pain. Breast reduction surgery is a major operation involving both size reduction and reshaping. FVH surgeons regularly undertake this procedure and the results have been extremely positive.

Our doctors can also perform gynecomasty (breast reduction for men).

How will surgery be performed?

Each operation varies a little, depending on individual patients, but typically incisions are made around your nipple, from your nipple down to your chest wall and to each side under your breast. The skin over the breast tissue to be preserved is first removed, then excess breast tissue and skin. The remaining breast tissue is moved to its new position and the skin closed around your new breast mound.

What kind of anaesthesia will be needed?

General anaesthesia.

How long will surgery take?

Usually between two and three hours.

Will I feel pain afterwards?

Some pain following surgery easily managed with oral medication prescribed by your FVH surgeon.

How long is recovery?

Three nights in hospital are usually required to receive the proper rest (Two nights for Gynecomasty). You may then return to your hotel for further rest before your next consultation.

Your bandages will be removed after two days and a surgical bra is to be continually worn for several weeks, until the swelling and bruising subside.

Sex is possible after a week.

Physical exercise is possible again about thirty days after surgery.

Will there be bruising and swelling?

Bruising and swelling is expected mostly subsiding within three to six weeks.

Will I have to remove the stitches?

Stitches will be removed by your FVH surgeon within seven to ten days following your operation, usually during the follow-up consultation or as determined by your FVH surgeon.

Will there be scars?

Scars remaining pink or brown for several years are located in areas unseen unless you are naked, hidden by most bathing suits. For some women, they become less noticeable more rapidly.

What can be done about scarring?

In addition to innovations used to make your scars as inconspicuous as possible, FVH surgeons have special techniques to reduce and remove scars on every part of the body using creams and lotions.

    “Riverway to Cu Chi”

    Cu Chi Tunnels is a massive system of tunnels combining to form an underground city during the American/Vietnam War. It has become a popular and must-see destination for many travellers. Buffalo Tours would like to offer you a new and exceptional way to discover this historical site: the trip combines a cruise, cultural experiences and history.

    At its height, the tunnel system stretched over 250 kilometres from Saigon to the Cambodian border and was three levels deep. The network included innumerable trap doors, specially constructed living areas, storage facilities, weapons factories, field hospitals, command centres and kitchens. Today the remaining tunnels have become a major tourist attraction giving the visitor a unique experience and a feel for what underground life in the American/Vietnam war must have been like. The tunnels have been widened for your benefit (otherwise you would not be able to enter them!).

    Leaving Saigon in the early morning, we board our speed boat from Saigon dock and leave the bustling city behind. From the boat, the city skyline gradually fades and is soon replaced by lush river banks. From the boat you can observe the daily life on the river. Along the way, you will stop at a lively market of Binh Duong Province, renowned for its variety of produce, from fresh seafood to flowers, fruits and traditional herbs. After visiting the market, you will enjoy a tea break in a local house before continuing to Cu Chi.

    Upon arrival at Cu Chi, you will watch a short introductory video on the tunnels’ construction. You will then spend the next hour exploring the maze of tunnels. Also on display are various man traps and the remains of an American tank, as well as numerous bomb craters made by 500-pound bombs dropped by B52 bombers. You then drive back to Ho Chi Minh City, arriving at approximately 2:00pm.
