Breast Reduction Surgery ( Mammoplasty Reduction )
Breast hypertrophy is the name in medical terminology; The size of the breast is too large compared to the general measurements of the body due to different reasons such as genetic hormonal problems or hormonal problems that occur during adolescence.
Excessively large breasts that are incompatible with the body make daily life more difficult and cause health problems. Breast reduction surgery is a type of plastic surgery performed to eliminate this problem. It is performed by removing the skin, subcutaneous, and breast tissue from the breast.
Breast surgery has two main objectives, both to give the desired shape in terms of aesthetics and to eliminate physical defaults which reduce the quality of life of the person.
Who Can Have Breast Reduction Surgery
People with breasts that are large enough to appear incompatible with their physical appearance may not be satisfied with their external appearance. Large breasts cause pain in the back, neck, and shoulders and seriously reduce the comfort of life. Breast reduction surgery is the definitive and permanent solution to reduce the size of the breasts.
It has been scientifically proven that it causes orthopedic problems in terms of health, as well as causing social and psychological difficulties. Therefore, mammoplasty reduction is not only an aesthetic but also a medical operation.
We can list the ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery below:
- Adult women who are uncomfortable with the size of their breasts.
- Those who suffer from back and neck pain due to the weight of their breasts.
- Those who have the risk of kyphosis and spinal curvature due to large breasts.
- Those who complain of posture disorder including the shoulders.
- Those who suffer from skin problems caused by excessive sweating.
While breast reduction surgery is performed, milk ducts are tried to be protected, but a certain amount of loss is usually inevitable since it is not possible to predict. Therefore, if you are planning to become a mother, we recommend you to postpone the surgery until after the birth.
What Are Breast Reduction Techniques?
Two common open techniques are used; breast reduction with an incision made around the chest, and breast reduction with a T-shaped incision. It is possible to say that the T shape is preferred more often. In breast recovery and breast reduction surgeries combined with breast lifting surgery, a reduction operation can be performed by removing the nipple. This is another breast reduction technique.
