Breast Reduction

Extremely large breast tissue bothers people in many ways. Neck, back and waist pains with the effect of heaviness, and recurrent intertrigo complaints with the increase of the contact surface are the most important physical ailments, as well as significant psychosocial negative effects. Patients mostly complain of not being able to wear the clothes they want, looking overweight and having difficulty in exercising. In order to solve all these complaints, the procedure of surgically reducing and lifting the breast is called breast reduction.

How is breast reduction surgery performed? How does the process proceed?

In breast reduction surgery, the excessively large breast tissue is both reduced and lifted within the drawings made before the procedure, in accordance with the patient's body. A detailed interview with the patient and a detailed physical examination are essential before the procedure, and at this stage, the patient's wishes, breast size, structure, asymmetries and the patient's general condition are evaluated. After the decision of surgery is made, preoperative mammography and / or USG should be performed according to the age of the patient and family history.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who Can Have Breast Reduction Aesthetics?

For breast reduction surgery, the development of the breast must first be completed. For this, the patient should wait until the end of puberty and preferably be 18 years old. However, it is important for patients who have thought of pregnancy recently to leave breast reduction surgery after pregnancy and breastfeeding. A very important point here is the relationship between breast reduction surgery and breastfeeding. Although it varies depending on the technique, the milk glands are protected as much as possible in breast reduction surgery and breastfeeding is generally possible with a probability of 85%.

When Can Breast Reduction Aesthetics Be Performed?

Although the lower age limit for breast reduction is generally 18, the upper age limit is not defined as long as the general health status of the patient allows.

Is breast reduction surgery safe?

The breast reduction surgery is a very safe operation and studies have shown that breast reduction surgery has positive effects in reducing the risk of breast cancer.

What are the risks of breast reduction surgery?

As with any surgical procedure, regional risks such as wound infection and hematoma are present, albeit low. In addition, although very rare, nutritional problems can be seen in the skin tissue after the surgery, and therefore the patient may need to be re-operated.

When can patients who had breast augmentation surgery return to work / normal life?

After breast reduction, it is sufficient for patients to spare 1 week for themselves. It is possible to return to normal life on the 7th day, and it should be avoided from heavy work and heavy sports for up to 4 weeks.

When will the scars heal after breast reduction surgery?

After breast reduction, the incision areas heal significantly in about 2-3 weeks, but it takes about 6 months to 1 year for the scars to fade and turn into skin color.
