Breast augmentation surgeries aim not only to enlarge the breasts but also to give them a more shapely appearance. Nowadays, many women complain about having small breasts and seek various ways to achieve fuller and larger breasts. However, the most effective way to attain the desired breast size is through surgical procedures. Breast augmentation surgeries performed by expert surgeons can significantly increase the size of small and flat breasts and also enhance their shape. Recent advancements in breast augmentation surgeries have made the procedures faster and easier, which is why many women opt for breast enlargement surgeries to address their small or flat breasts.

Breast Reduction

Breast aesthetics generally involve altering the size of breasts from their normal dimensions, either making them larger or smaller.

Breast reduction surgery is not only viewed as an aesthetic need for women. Especially, large breasts can lead to back or neck pain, which can eventually result in serious issues like kyphosis over time. Additionally, in some women, bras exert pressure on the brachial plexus nerves, leading to numbness due to compression. As observed, breast reduction surgery can also arise from necessity.

In general, the surgery bears similarities to breast lift procedures. During the reduction surgery, some of the fat and glandular tissue inside the breast is removed. This results in both breast reduction and reshaping.

How is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

Breast reduction surgery involves reshaping the breast tissue according to the patient’s body proportions. Excess tissue is removed during the procedure, and the nipple is lifted upwards. One of the main concerns for patients undergoing reduction surgery is the post-operative recovery process. Especially, the possibility of scarring on the breast can be a significant concern for patients.

Although aesthetic stitching techniques are used, scars may still be visible on the body for a certain period. However, over time, these scars typically undergo a healing process. Scars are usually circular around the nipple area. Additionally, if there is a vertical incision below the nipple, it may form a T-shape. However, in our practice, we avoid making horizontal incisions underneath the breast, thereby eliminating the risk of scarring.

  • After Breast Reduction Surgery, What Can I Expect?

    Breast reduction surgery is completed under general anesthesia. The procedure can vary between 2.5 to 4 hours depending on the individual’s condition. Drains are inserted after surgery to remove excess fluid between tissues, and they are typically removed within 2 days.

    After the surgery, bandages resembling a bra are applied to the patient. These are usually removed after about a week. Stitches are removed around 10 days post-surgery, depending on the patient’s overall condition. Subsequently, the patient can gradually return to their daily activities. However, it is advisable to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise until complete recovery is achieved.

  • What Should Be Considered After Breast Reduction Surgery?

    After the surgery, it is important for the patient to take care of themselves for a speedy recovery. Some common conditions may occur in every patient after the operation. Bruising and swelling, especially in the breast area, are among the most common. Temporary numbness in the nipple area can also be expected as a result of the surgery. However, all of these issues will diminish as the healing process progresses, and there is no need for the patient to worry.

    Since surgeons provide extensive information to patients about the pre-operative and post-operative periods, our patients are well informed about the process. Patients can typically return to work one week after the procedure, but they should continue to take precautions. It is advisable to avoid strenuous exercise and refrain from swimming or going to the beach for a while.
