End to Big Breasts: Breast Reduction

Breasts that are larger than they should be create big problems in terms of health as well as aesthetic problems. Problems with large breasts are;

  • Causing pressure on the upper abdomen due to the size of the breasts, diaper rash and stench,
  • Constant pain in the back, waist and neck region caused by large breasts,
  • Problems in choosing clothes and performing physical activities,
  • Formation of a dimpled structure on the shoulders due to the excessive tightness of the bra strap.


In cases such as breast reduction surgery, where one of the breasts is larger than the other, two breasts may require different operations.


Breastfeeding after breast reduction surgery

The size of the breasts, the location of the breast and the nipple, sagging breasts and post-operative planning are among the factors that directly concern the operation. If the desired smallness in the operation is at a degree of not harming the milk and mammary glands, there is no problem in breastfeeding.


Is there any scars after breast reduction operation?

Since the operation is performed by surgical methods, there will be a scar. Every surgical intervention may leave scars in the places where incisions are made. The main question here is where should the incision be opened in the operation. According to the technique to be used in the operation, incisions can be made under the armpit, under the chest or from the nipple. Operations performed with the incision made from the nipple may not be noticed due to the color change in this area.


Does breast reduction surgery cause cancer?

Surgical intervention to breasts definitely does not cause cancer. If there is a family history of cancer and the risk of cancer is present even if there is no operation. Possible cancer risk will be eliminated in women over the age of 40 after it is checked with mammography and ultrasound. In general terms, removal of tissue from the breast in breast reduction operations is a factor that reduces the risk of cancer.


Recovery process after breast reduction surgery

The average hospital stay after breast reduction surgery is 1 day. The risks are avoided by having patients in the hospital for one day against the risk of infection and bleeding. The patient, who is put on a sports bra during the period of leaving the hospital, comes for an average of 2 or 3 controls with an interval of one week. Apart from this, he can continue his normal life by avoiding sudden movements and taking the necessary precautions against the risk of infection.


Is breast reduction surgery painful?

The pain that the patient will feel after breast reduction surgery will be no different from other surgical interventions. It will be possible to reduce the pain in the incision area with the painkillers and cold application given by the doctor after the surgery. It is possible to see conditions such as stinging, mild pain and burning in the breasts between 6 and 12 months following the surgery.
