Breast Reduction

Breast reduction aims to reduce breast size and reshape the breasts. Also, it helps to free
the patient from intense pain in the neck and spine caused by the weight of the chest while
it also helps to improve body posture. Breast reduction can be performed at any age as
long as the development of the breast has been completed.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and the mammary gland and fat
together with the overlying skin are removed and the nipple is placed in a higher
position.The procedure may also be combined with regional case liposuction,if needed.
Directly observed postoperative swelling and bruising in the breast begin to subside
gradually while there is mild pain which can be treated with mild painkillers. The patient is
advised to wear a special elastic bra for about a month. The problems of the spine and
neck which very often women with large breasts face, after surgery,are minimized. Loads
received by the torso are reduced to a large extent while the center of gravity of the body
varies. Patients who are interested in undergoing breast reduction should be aware that,
after surgery, they might not be able to breastfeed, although their breasts will continue to
react to an increase or decrease in size depending on the changes that occur in the body
(pregnancy, weight changes, menopause).
