Breast Reduction Revision - major/minor event?
In my practice, I would likely perform your revisionary surgery under local anesthesia with sedation or general anesthesia. This is because there is a significant amount of excess skin/tissue on both sides; I think you will be more comfortable having the procedure performed under more local anesthesia only.
Best wishes for an outcome that you will be very pleased with.

1) These could be removed under local anaesthetic. Might need to be done one at a time i.e. on different days as it may require too much anaesthetic if all done on one day. As long as you are up for it then it is probably possible.2) Another incision should not greatly increase the risk of wound issues.3) There are no medical issues in keeping the 'under pair' which is probably largely a skin fold.I hope that helps.
