Any surgical operation will leave behind scars to the patient. And breast reduction scars are quite a confirmation. Most patients obtain graceless reddish scars that would stay for quite long time before it converts into finer white lines. The fact is, the larger the amount of skin removed, the bigger is the chance to have larger and deeper scars.

Since scars after breast reduction operation are permanent, the best thing that most doctors do is to place the incisions on discreet locations so that the patient will not have any problem concealing the scarsespecially when the patient has to wearplunging tops and sexy swim wear.

However, if the patient smokes even before the surgery there is a possibility that the scars would grow wider over time. Therefore, it is best that the patient will stop smoking several months prior to the surgery and remain nicotine free after the surgery.
