Some women’s breasts may be larger than the desired size due to hormonal factors, pregnancy or genetic factors. Large breasts cause many problems in women. Breasts larger than normal may cause postural disorder, back and shoulder pain, and also prevent wearing the desired clothes.
Are the function and breastfeeding ability of the breasts impaired after the surgery?
In breast reduction surgery, the breast tissue is lifted while the milk ducts and the functional properties of the nipple are preserved by the techniques developed over the years. Unless complications develop after the surgery, breast functions are preserved.
Will there be any scar after the surgery?
Scar is inevitable since it is necessary to remove breast tissue and skin in this surgery. The surgical plan and scar to form after the surgery vary depending on the current breast volume of the individual. All plastic surgery skills are used to make the scars look as good as possible. The postoperative interventions also aim to heal as invisible as possible.
The surgical process…
The operative time is approximately 3 hours. The patient is discharged the next day after the surgery. The patient can take a bath on the fourth day after the surgery and start daily physical activities a week later. It is necessary to wait one month for light sports and three months for heavy sports. A special bra is used postoperatively. This bra is designed to minimize pressure on the breast tissue. Thus, the scars heal better. It is recommended to use this bra for a month.
Routine follow-ups are planned as the first week, second week, first month, third month and the first year.
