What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is the removal of weight and sagging skin-mammary gland tissue from the breast and shaping the remaining breast in a more upright and aesthetically improved condition.

It is applied to female patients who have completed their breast development and do not have a risky mass in their breasts and complain about the size of their breasts. Breast reduction surgery can also be performed in men with feminine breast tissue development.

Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Reduction Surgery
Will there be any scars in breast reduction surgery?

As with any surgery involving an incision, breast reduction surgery is a scar operation. In the early period after breast reduction surgery, the scars may be darker and more prominent. Within 6-12 months after breast reduction surgery, the scars of the operation will become very faint and close to the skin color. The scar of breast reduction surgery may become too indistinct in some patients.

How is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed? Which Methods Are Used?

How is breast reduction surgery done? The question is one of the most frequently asked questions. While performing breast reduction surgery, the basic steps are to move the drooping nipple to a higher point, to reduce the nipple if necessary, to remove the excess skin-breast tissue and to reshape the remaining tissue aesthetically. Here, the scars vary according to the way the nipple is moved and the tissue removal method. The most common scar is a circular scar around the nipple and a vertical scar starting from that scar and descending to the new fold under the breast. If the amount of breast tissue is large, there may be scars along the under-breast fold. It can be compared to an inverted T.

How Long Does Breast Reduction Surgery Take?

Depending on the size of the breasts and the surgical techniques applied, breast reduction surgery takes around 2-3 hours.

How is Male Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

Breast reduction surgery can also be performed in men. The development of feminine breast tissue in male patients is called gynecomastia. While gynecomastia occurs in everyone during adolescence, it does not regress in 10-15% of patients in advanced ages and becomes permanent.

Various drugs
Breast size can occur in men due to diseases.

Before deciding on breast reduction surgery in men, the reason for breast size should be determined first.

When deciding for gynecomastia correction, how much skin and how much tissue excess should be taken into account. While the fatty tissue is removed with the liposuction method, the hard tissue under the nipple is removed by entering through a small and non-marking incision made in the dark area of the nipple. If the excess skin in the breasts is too advanced, it may be necessary to perform scarred breast reduction, as is done in breast reduction in women.

What Should Be Considered After Breast Reduction Surgery?

After the breast reduction surgery, the night is spent in the hospital in terms of follow-ups and if no problem is observed, the patient is discharged the next morning.
Heavy exercise should be avoided in the early period after breast reduction surgery, but there is no need for heavy bed rest.
As a lying position, he should lie on his back for 4 weeks after the operation and should avoid lying on his face, especially in the early period.
In general, the dressings made during the surgery are not changed until the first control.
If there is no obstacle after the wounds are checked, the patient is allowed to take a shower.
The special bra applied after breast reduction surgery should be used for 6-8 weeks.

What are the Risks of Breast Reduction Surgery?

As with any surgery on this scale, breast reduction has certain risks. Although precautions are taken against all of these, unforeseen situations may occur, but the necessary interventions to overcome all of them will be carried out by the surgical team.

The most common risk in the first 24 hours is bleeding to the operation site. This may occur in approximately 1-2 of every 100 patients. The amount of this bleeding is followed and if it is not predicted that it will not regress in the follow-up, evacuation is performed with a short operation performed on the same night. This does not affect the final aesthetic condition, but means an operation under additional anesthesia.

The most common complications in the early weeks are wound infections and healing problems at the sutures that may be related to this. This is especially common where the vertical track joins the horizontal track, where the tension is highest.

Since conditions such as diabetes, smoking, and soft tissue diseases increase the risk of this complication, your diabetes and soft tissue disease should be under control before the operation, and your cigarette consumption should be stopped if possible.

This risk is around 2-4 per 100 people. While such cases almost always recover with dressings, in very rare circumstances a local operation may require suturing.

Can I Breastfeed After Breast Reduction Surgery?

During breast reduction surgery, the milk-producing glands are largely preserved and can be breastfed. However, it should be noted that this is an inference and not a guarantee.

Does Breast Reduction Surgery Cause Breast Cancer?

Breast reduction surgery does not cause cancer in any way. On the contrary, there are opinions that it reduces the risk of cancer because the tissue is removed, but it has not been revealed in scientific publications and large series. Ultimately, it can be said with certainty that it does not increase the risk of cancer.

What is the Price of Breast Reduction Surgery?

One of the most curious subjects about breast reduction surgery is the price of breast reduction surgery. The procedure performed, the type of treatment needed, and the interventions that the patient will receive in the hospital due to his or her health condition are decisive in breast reduction surgery. At the same time, the price policy of the hospital and the plastic surgeon who performs the breast reduction surgery is also important.
