Breast Reduction

The breast structure is an aesthetic symbol for the female body, but it has an equally sensitive structure. The breast, which can be considered the physical and visual focus of the female body, can also become the cause of serious problems when it is large and drooping. For this reason, breast reduction is one of the preferred methods among breast aesthetic operations. Large and drooping breasts can cause serious cosmetic and physical problems in women. At the beginning of these problems are back, neck and shoulder pain, rash and redness under the breast, pain caused by bra strap marks and pain in the breast. These conditions, caused by the large and drooping breast structure, can make breast reduction surgeries a necessity.

What is Breast Reduction?

In the breast reduction operation, different techniques are applied according to the size of the existing breast, and the excess breast, fat and skin tissue is removed, the breast tissue is reduced and lifted at the same time. Thus, the sagging and excess tissue in the breast structure is removed, and a breast size compatible with the body structure is obtained. The aim of breast reduction surgery is to obtain an upright breast that fits the body structure of the person and thus to prevent health problems that may arise or may arise depending on the breast structure.

What Should Be Done Before Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgeries require detailed and detailed preparation. The fact that the new breast size to be created can give satisfactory results in terms of both health and aesthetics is directly related to the self-sacrificing pre-operative studies. In this regard, we can list the things that should be done before breast reduction surgery as follows:

First of all, it should be evaluated whether breast enlargement continues in patients who apply for breast reduction surgery.

In the breast examination, it should be evaluated whether there is any mass, whether there is a hormonal problem, whether there is an infection in the breast or whether there is a previous surgical procedure.

Before the operation, breast ultrasound should be used for patients under 40 years of age and mammography imaging techniques should be used for patients over 40 years of age to determine whether there is any mass.

If there is no increase in breast size or a hormonal disorder in the last 6 months, surgery can be planned for the patient.

How is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

Breast reduction operations are performed with different techniques according to the size and structure of the existing breast. Before the operation, drawings are made according to the technique that fits the breast size and the amount of tissue to be removed is calculated.

The most commonly applied breast reduction technique is the surgery performed with a lollipop-shaped incision extending down from around the nipple and an inverted T-shaped incision.Breast reduction and lift surgery is performed in the operating room under general anaesthesia. The operation lasts approximately 1.5-3.5 hours depending on the breast size and it is necessary to stay in the hospital for 1 or 2 nights after the operation. Following the removal of the drain, the patient is discharged by wearing a special bra.

What to Do After Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery is not a very painful operation, it can be controlled with painkillers given after the surgery and patients can return to work after 10 days. However, certain points need to be considered in this process.

The bra, which is worn by the patient at discharge following the removal of the drain, should continue to be used for approximately 4-6 weeks. On the 3rd day after the operation, the dressing should be changed after the patients take a shower. In breast reduction surgery, the stitches are not removed because dissolving stitches are used, a rapid regression is observed in oedema after 2-3 weeks, and the breast shape takes its final shape after about 3 months. After 3-4 weeks, patients can start long walking and jogging, and after 6-8 weeks, they can start sports where they can actively use their arms.One year after the operation, mammography and ultrasound should be taken for control.
