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.

A pre-operative consultation and detailed examination process is the most important stage of the breast reduction operation. If the preparation process is managed well, if the patient’s expectations are clearly understood and all details regarding the results of the operation are fully informed, it can be said that a successful breast reduction operation is guaranteed.

The preoperative process consists of the following stages:

  • Breast examination.
  • Performing blood tests and other necessary tests.
  • Hormone testing.
  • Mammography and breast ultrasound.

Your doctor will provide you detailed information about what to do the night before the operation, please follow these instructions strictly.

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia by a plastic surgeon. There are many parameters that will determine both the operation time and the technique to be used and the cost of the surgery:

The size of the breast and the request of the patients determine;

  • Will it be necessary to remove the skin?
  • Is there any symmetry problem?
  • If the breast is sagging, if the patient needs breast lifting?
  • What are the expectations and sensitivity of the patient regarding the scar?
  • What are the aesthetic expectations of the patient from a breast reduction?
  • What are the primary complaints that make the patient request to have breast reduction surgery?
  • What is the patient’s probability of becoming pregnant? Is the patient planning to breastfeed soon after the surgery?

The purpose of the operation is to fulfill the aesthetic expectations of the patient in the best way. While doing this, it is important to protect the functionality of the breast and protect the milk ducts for the women who plan to become a mother in the future. Another important goal of the operation is to eliminate the primary complaints such as back and neck pain.

After the breast reduction operation, you need to stay in the hospital for one night, and you can leave the hospital the next day. It is normal to have mild pain on the first day and it gradually decreases from the second day. After the third day, there is no pain, except movement restriction.

At least 1 month must pass for the wounds to heal and the tissues to return to normal. Recovery periods may take longer for some people. The breast takes its final form in a period of 6 months to a year. Although it is rare after the surgery, it is useful to know some minor inconveniences that may be experienced in advance:

All these problems are temporary. It is important to inform the patient in advance, as it will contribute to the treatment process. Some important points that the patient should pay attention to after the operation are below:

  • Strictly follow your doctor’s advice.
  • Do not use underwear other than the type of bra that should be worn during the recovery period.
