Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
 
Breast reduction surgery is meant for women who have large breasts and want to resolve issues such as: Chronic back, neck and shoulder pain , chronic rash or skin irritation under the breasts , deep grooves in the shoulders from bra strap pressure , restricted activity,poor self image related to large breasts , difficulty fitting into bras and clothing.
 
We will likely; evaluate the patient medical history and overall health, discuss your expectations for breast size and appearance after the surgery,provide detailed description of the procedure and its risks and benefits, including likely scarring and possible loss of sensation , examine and measure your breasts , take photographs of breasts fort he medical record,explain the type of anesthesia used during surgery
 
Before breast reduction surgery, you might also be asked to:
  • Complete various lab tests
  • Get a baseline mammogram
  • Stop smoking for a certain period of time before and after surgery
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements to control bleeding during surgery
 
Breast reduction surgery is usually done under general anesthesia, either in a hospital.
 
The specific technique used to reduce the size of your breasts may vary. Generally, we make an incision around the areola and down the breast. Excess breast tissue, fat and skin are then removed to reduce the size of each breast.
 
In breast reduction techniques like ; 
  • İnverted T – Keyhole scar
  • Vertical – Lojour – Lollipop
  • Periareolar
In most cases, the nipple and areola remain attached to the breast. If your breasts are very large and droopy, however, your nipple and areola might need to be removed and then reattached at a higher position on your breast as a skin graft.
 
Your breasts will be covered with a gauze dressing or bandages. A tube might be placed under each arm to drain any excess blood or fluid. We will likely prescribe medication for pain as well as antibiotics to decrease your risk of infection.
 
For the first days or week, your breasts will probably feel tender and sensitive. They might also be swollen and bruised. We might recommend an elastic compression bra initially to protect the breasts.
 
You will need a follow-up visit with your surgeon to remove stitches and check your recovery.
