Breast reduction

Breast reduction surgeries are performed to reduce the volume of the breasts. In this surgery, a lot of skin tissue is removed, as well as breast tissue.

What does breast reduction mean?

Breast reduction operations are surgical procedures performed because of large breasts that cause health and aesthetic problems. For example, large breasts cause back pain, posture disorders, fatigue, skin problems under the breasts due to sweating, deformation of the skeletal system, and many other health problems.

Large breasts also prevent women from dressing as they like because of their unaesthetic appearance. It results in a loss of self-confidence and leads women to breast reduction surgeries. These are procedures that will provide comfort to women who complain about their large breasts.

A breast lift and reduction

It is possible to decide which breast surgery is most suitable for the patient only during the examination.

Since a tremendous breast shape causes the breasts to lose their ability to resist gravity, they fall below the aesthetic level. As a result, many patients suffer from poor posture and experience numbness and loss of strength in their hands. By all these data, the aesthetics of breast reduction provides patients who suffer from such a condition, on the one hand, the formation of a beautiful breast structure and, above all, a higher quality of life.

What determines the suitability of breast reduction?

  • Breasts larger than the appropriate ratio
  • Sagging problem except for large breasts
  • impossibility of dressing according to will
  • Skin problems, sore back, lower back, and posture disorders
  • Large breasts that prevent physical activities
  • Wavy look on the back thanks to the bra
  • Low self-esteem due to unaesthetic appearance
  • Orthopedic problems, numbness of the hands, loss of sensation, and poor posture

Candidates suitable for breast reduction surgery know all these problems.

After breast reduction

Since the size, symmetry, and degree of sagging of the breasts differ for each woman, the access techniques also differ. Our priority is to provide our patients with the most comfortable recovery possible. Breast reduction surgeries are among the treatments we receive the best feedback on. The patient’s arm movements will be limited for one or two days. The incision scars will begin to fade within a few weeks. Immediately after the operation, there is a great relief, reduced or wholly cured lower back and spine pain, and quick elimination of other health problems. In addition, an aesthetic and shaped bust is achieved.

How is breast reduction surgery performed?

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Fatty tissues inside the breasts and excess skin around the breasts are removed. The enlarged areola is also reduced to a size proportional to the final form. The problem of sagging, one of the main problems of large breasts, is solved by combining surgery with a breast lift procedure and using stitches. Unique techniques are used to perform the reduction according to the breast size.

How many scars remain after breast reduction surgeries?

In breast reduction surgeries, where we strive for a minimal scar and the most aesthetic appearance, planning must be done with maximum attention. The patient must experience the healthiest and most beautiful result. The inverse T incision, which starts below the nipple and extends vertically below the breast, leaves scars that fade over time and are almost completely invisible as they remain below the breast. However, since each patient’s breast size differs, the techniques and incision scar will also vary. Scarring is one of the most severe problems requiring maximum attention regardless of the method used. Patients are given minimal scarring and a comfortable recovery period.

Basics of breast reduction surgery

Breast reduction surgeries are always planned with aesthetics and health in mind. When reducing the breasts, it is necessary to consider the age, the size of the breasts, and the patient’s breastfeeding probability.

Before this 1-hour operation, the goal is a breast size that the patient considers suitable, a minimal scar, and a comfortable recovery period as possible. In addition, a quick and smooth recovery period after surgery will positively affect the patient’s psyche.

Although there is a possibility that breast tissue may grow back as a result of weight gain, it will never be as large as it was before surgery. Our patients maintain their aesthetic breasts for life. In addition, breast reduction operations do not prevent patients from breastfeeding. The procedure focuses not on the mammary glands but on excess fat. In breast reduction surgeries, special attention is paid to problems with reduced sensitivity when changing position or the nipple. Maintaining nipple sensitivity depends on the amount of skin removed and continued blood circulation not affecting the area. Continuous sensitivity of the nipples is also significant for stimulating the nipples in the breastfeeding function. In addition, symmetry is essential for both breasts and nipples.
