Breast Reduction operations are performed in order to reduce the volume of the breast. In this operation we generally take an amount of skin tissue as well as breast tissue. If the patient has breast sagging along with the big and heavy breast that often can cause back problems a breast lifting operation can also be made with breast reduction operation.
The most important thing in the breast reduction surgery is to leave a minimal scar and to achieve symmetrical breast after the operation. In order to leave a minimal scar we use a special tissue laser to make the incisions. By this way the scar will be minimum and the result will be natural.
Why should I have a breast reduction operation?
If you have too big breasts and you are not happy for this situation; then you can be a good candidate for breast reduction operation. As it was also mentioned above people often suffer from back pain due to the weight of their breasts. Therefore having big and heavy breasts is not only a cosmetic condition but also a medical issue. Patients often indicate that their life quality is improved after the operation.
“Breast Reduction” operation is performed under general anesthesia and it takes to perform the procedure nearly 1 to 1.5 hours when it is performed by a team of plastic surgeons. It is really important to decrease the operation duration to give less anesthesia to the patient yielding a better postoperative period to the patient. You will be advised not to eat 6 hours before the surgery and that is all! You will get a physical examination by your surgeon and anesthetist. After the examination; we will prepare you for the surgery. You will receive a sedation in order to reduce the preoperative anxiety and fell yourself more comfortable.
Recovery and Results :
You are going to see the difference just after the procedure. However it is necessary to wait for some time in order to see the final result. After the Breast Reduction operation the recovery period depends on your physical status, age, general health and condition mainly. The operation itself does not take too long therefore you receive a mild anesthesia. Since the anesthesia that you receive is mild; you will not have problems associated with anesthetic agents after the operation. This is especially important and can be achieved with only a team of plastic surgeons like we have. After the operation you will be advised to wear a corset in order to reduce the edema. You can start to do your daily activities just after the operations but we do not advise you heavy lifting, running or activities that require excess physical activity. The more you rest, the faster your recovery will be.
