Breasts can grow for various reasons such as hormonal, genetic or weight gain. Too large breasts may affect health negatively, and not please the person aesthetically.

By removing the excess fat tissue, breast tissue and skin; breasts get smaller, lighter and firmer. In addition, diameter of dark skin around the nipple called 'areola' can be reduced during the operation according to the patient's request.

While the reduction is achieved with breast reduction operation, breast lift is also performed and the asymmetry in the breasts is adjusted if necessary. The goal is to provide a natural-looking chest area in a size and position compatible with patient’s desire and her body. Like any other surgery, breast reduction operation should also be personalized.

What Challenges of Big Breasts Bring to Daily Life?

  • Bras made to hide big breast are too expensive and having one bra is not enough.

  • Some actions such as exercise, running or bending can cause discomfort in the person.

  • Proned position can be difficult.

  • The buttons of shirts may not be closed easily and it may be necessary to hide the cleavage in some outfits.

  • Lower and upper body differences can make it difficult to buy and wear clothes.

  • Collapse in shoulders, neck and back pain can be disturbing.

How Is Breast Reduction Performed?

Breast reduction surgery is quite similar to the breast lift surgery in general. The volume of breast tissue is reduced, the excess skin is removed and the nipple is moved to its proper position. Every method that is applied leaves scars around the nipple. There will be a straight scar and an outward-facing L or a small inverted T scar that runs straight down from the nipple. The shape and the amount of scar left after the operation depend on the size of breast and the nature of breast skin. The scars on breasts are obvious at first, but after 1 year they get pale and become less distinct.

Recovery Process after the Breast Reduction Operation

  • Patients stay in the hospital for 1 night after the breast reduction.

  • Drains are used to prevent leaks that may occur inside and these drains are removed after an average of 2 days.

  • Shower is allowed after 3 days of dressing.

  • A special bra is worn just before discharge from the hospital and this bra is requested to be used for 1 month.

  • It takes 1-2 months for your breast to take its final shape. As the swelling decreases, the shape of breasts will begin to appear more clearly.

  • An average of 1 week is enough to return to daily life.

  • A resting period of 6 weeks is recommended before any sports activity. Although this period may vary among patients, your doctor will inform you in detail about the recovery and follow-up plan that is most suitable for you.
