Breast Reduction Surgery

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is an operation applied for both “larger than normal” breasts and sagging breasts.

In addition to aesthetic reasons, medical-based problems can also lead people to have this operation.

    Breast Reduction Procedure Steps

    During the pre-breast reduction process, as in other operations, the patient's expectations and concerns are listened to, and the surgery decision is made after examining her medical history and general health status. This defines the consultation phase. After that, a specific date for surgery is decided.

    The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Factors such as skin structure, grandular tissue, nipple, and breast size are effective in determining the method to be applied. During breast reduction surgery, the fat tissue in the breast is removed. Excess loose skin is also removed. Although the duration of the operation varies according to the size of the breast, the operation ends in approximately 3 to 4 hours.

    Liposuction and surgery through incisions techniques are used in this treatment. The surgeon makes an incision and removes excess fat, repositions the nipple, and reshapes the breasts. The wounded skin area is sutured after the procedure is completed. The patient is asked to come to follow-up appointments both in the first week and second week. At the end of the second week, the stitches are removed. The patient is asked to use a special bra. It is normal to feel a tingling sensation in the breasts for a while and these will disappear over time.

    What Is A Breast Reduction?

    Breast reduction is a type of plastic surgery that can be needed and be requested for various reasons.

    It offers a very good solution for those who think their breasts have a saggy appearance and are uncomfortable with the negative physical effects of large breasts.

    Factors that may cause breast reduction surgery:

    • Genetics,
    • Aging,
    • Lifestyle,
    • Pregnancy,
    • Breastfeeding
    • Obesity,
    • Hormonal imbalance,
    • Underlying medical conditions

    Who Can Apply For Breast Reduction Surgery?

    It can easily be said that those who are uncomfortable with the appearance of their breasts, or people who experience the physical side effects of having large and sagging breasts are potential candidates for this operation. Patients prefer this procedure to either eliminate aesthetic concerns or physical problems caused by large breasts.

    Some problems caused by having large breasts:

    • Intense nerve pain,
    • Chronic body pain,
    • Lack of self-confidence,
    • Difficulty fitting into bras,

    Since the person must have completed his / her body development in order to have surgery, it is applied to individuals aged 20 and over. There is a medical necessity for candidates who are found suitable for surgery even though they do not meet these conditions.

    Breast Reduction Recovery Process

    It is extremely important to follow the surgeon's recommendations after breast reduction surgery and to attend doctor appointments. Post-operative care is also essential.

    The patient,

    • Should rest at home for about a week,
    • Should use the prescribed drugs as recommended amount, without delay.
    • Should use a bra that will not irritate incisions and the breasts in general after the surgery,
    • Should not miss the surgical dressing dates determined before.
    • Should not carry heavy items and avoid intense exercises for 4 weeks after the surgery.

    During the recovery period, swelling and edema may occur in the relevant area, and these effects lessen in about 1 month. Full recovery takes an average of 1 year. In order to speed up the healing process, it is recommended that you do not consume cigarettes and alcohol for 1 month after the surgery, and it is even better to quit if possible.


    Under normal circumstances, the breast does not regrow, however, partial enlargement may occur depending on the lifestyle and aging. Excessive weight gain and an unhealthy lifestyle can cause an increase in existing fat tissues.

    The answer to this question is yes. Since the milk ducts (lactiferous ducts) are not damaged, it is possible for the patient to give birth and breastfeed after the surgery.

    As with many operations, minimal scars may remain after breast reduction surgery. However, the types of techniques, the degree of sagging of the breast, the amount of reduction, and post-operative care are decisive on the scar.
