Many patients who apply for breast size complaints need breast reduction, which is more than esthetic concerns, due to health problems.

Especially at a young age, the size of the breast also causes a person to face psychological problems. The size of the breast also affects the skeletal system. The weight of the breasts pushes the body forward and triggers a cervical hernia, a ruckus in the back area, and loss of power due to nerve-binding in the arms. With Osteoporosis, this pressure in the skeletal system increases. The solution to these problems is usually surgical and requires a breast reduction operation.

How is the Operate Done?
It is intended to achieve maximum shape formation, leaving at least surgical marks. Therefore, pre-op breast measurements and drawings need to be well-planned. This stage is as important as surgery for the surgical result to be obtained.

Breast reduction surgery, also called reduction mammoplasty, gives the breast size shrink, shape, and breast a more perpendicular appearance. These surgeries also remove the skin, subcutaneous fat tissue, and breast tissue from the large breast.

Breast reduction operations do not only reduce, but also do vertical and lift operations. It is also possible to reduce and shape if the size of the nozzle tip, called the areola, is large.

Breast reduction operations vary from person to person, but the marks under the bra area or bikini are visible. These marks are visible as inverted T, J, or L marks around the nipple-areola and toward the under breast fold area, depending on the surgical technique and the degree of breast reduction. In the early months, these distinctive red prints turn on and become less noticeable in the future.

The duration of the surgery varies depending on the size of the breast and the techniques applied but lasts around 2-4 hours.

What are the points to be taken care of after surgery?
Surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Usually, after a night in the hospital, the patient is discharged.

About 1 to 4 after surgery. drones are placed in both breast areas, taking them off on days. The first 2 days of pain are reduced by painkillers. It is also possible to see swelling or bruising around the breast. But these usually go away in 2 weeks.

Special sports bras are worn to reduce post-op edema. It is possible to return to desk work 4-5 days after surgery. Exercise and very heavy lifting are generally not recommended for 3-4 weeks.

It takes about 6-12 months for the swelling on the breast to go through completely and for the breast to be finished.

Is breast reduction breastfeeding after surgery?
In some cases, the milk channels are also slightly removed, so there may also be an effect on the post-pregnancy breastfeeding functions. Some studies found that this rate was 10-20%.

Who are the risky groups?
In diabetic patients, in cases of systemic disease, in the case of various vitamin and mineral deficiencies, especially in smokers, scar healing problems and scarring conditions can be seen. Therefore, these patient groups should be told of the potential risks.
