Various problems such as back and neck pain, skin irritation, breathing problems and skeletal deterioration due to the weight of the breasts can also cause the person to become shy and withdrawn. Breast reduction surgery can be performed in order to eliminate aesthetic concerns and medical problems. Surgery, which allows the sagging breasts to be lifted after the breastfeeding period, also helps you to have symmetrical breasts. It is also a fact that breast reduction surgery enables you to achieve the physical activities you like and relax by removing the pressure on your shoulders by the bra strap. You can return to your active and happy life after breast reduction surgery to have a healthy body.
What are the Breast Reduction Methods?
The breast reduction operation, which is applied to have a proportional body, is performed according to certain measurements. It is a type of surgery performed with an incision line extending down from the brown part of the chest. A small “t” or “j” shaped scar is formed. Breast reduction surgery also varies according to the size of the patient’s breast. The “t” shaped incision line seen in sagging breasts surrounds the brown part of the breast and follows the back of the breast. A lollipop-shaped incision is made around the nipple to remove the sagging skin and breast tissue. Breast lift and reduction operations are performed with the lollipop incision technique. With breast reduction surgery that results in shaping the breast, you can have a healthy and vigorous appearance.
How is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?
Surgery, which is among the breast reduction methods, is carried out by shaping the large breast tissue according to the body size of the person. The surgery, which takes about 2-2.5 hours under general anesthesia in hospital conditions, is applied to people who have completed their physical and hormonal development. The surgery, which starts with the removal of the excess breast tissue and the skin on it, continues by moving the nipple to where it should be. Breast reduction surgery, which leaves different scars according to the method applied, improves your physical appearance and your health problems disappear.
What to Consider After Breast Reduction Surgery?
There are some criteria you should pay attention to after breast reduction surgery. First of all, you must follow the medications and warnings given by your doctor. It is useful not to disrupt your dressing and not to lift heavy for at least 8 weeks and to wear the sports bra provided to you. Also, you should not lie face down on your breasts for about 15 days.
Is There Any Scars After Breast Reduction?
As in almost all surgeries, scarring is quite possible in breast reduction. The scar changes according to the doctor and the surgery technique. However, the scar visibly decreases over time with various creams. Although the horizontal trace at the point where the breast folds is not visible when viewed from the front, the vertical trace is slightly noticeable. The sensitivity of the patient’s skin also plays an important role in the permanence of the scar, which varies according to the size of the breast after the reduction and the degree of sagging.
What is the Recovery Process?
After breast reduction surgery, you should generally stay in the hospital for 1 day and be under doctor’s control. You may experience discomfort while moving for a certain period of time. Since the stitches are of the absorbed type, they do not need to be removed. Special bra should be worn after the surgery and heavy exercises should be avoided. Your breast color may return to its original state after a few months. Pregnancy and breastfeeding period may also vary after breast reduction. If a surgical technique is performed without damaging the milk ducts, your pregnancy and breastfeeding process can go smoothly.
