Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery is one of the most common operations such as breast augmentation and breast asymmetry. Large breasts can cause problems as well as being very small. The person does not feel healthy, beautiful and happy in their clothes. He cannot wear the clothes he wants and chooses concealer models. Removing the bra leads to disappointment. Apart from this, the heaviness of the breasts, back and neck pain, shoulder straps cut off the shoulder, and redness under the breast may also be problems. Breast reduction surgery is performed to eliminate these problems.

Breast reduction surgeries do not cause breast cancer. Breast reduction surgery can also be performed in conjunction with breast lift surgery when necessary. The surgery can be done with sedatives or under general anesthesia. Before the operation, the person's height, shoulder and hip width, waist curvature are calculated and a size suitable for his own style is planned. The more reduction to be made, the more incisions need to be made. These incisions are made on the circumference of the nipple, the vertical line extending from the nipple to the bottom of the nipple, and under the breast fold. With the technique developed in recent years, the need for the incision made under the breast has decreased. After the operation, the person can return home the same day. He can take a shower a day later. He returns to his normal life in a few days. Pain will be less. If self-melting stitches are used, there is no need to take stitches. A little bruise occurs and heals in two weeks. Immediately after breast reduction surgery, there will be some swelling at first. These swelling will decrease within weeks. After breast reduction, it takes a few months to take its full shape.
