How much scar is left in breast reduction operations?

In breast reduction operations, where we aim for minimum scar and the most aesthetic look, the planning must be done with utmost attention and the patient must experience the healthiest and most beautiful result. Inverse T incision, which starts under the nipple and extends below the breast vertically, leaves scars that fade in time and almost completely invisible as they remain under the breast. However, as breast size of each patient is different, techniques and incision scar will also vary. No matter which technique is used, scar is one of the most issues that require the utmost attention and patients are provided with minimum scar and a comfortable recovery period.

Essentials of breast reduction operation

Breast reduction operations are always planned in consideration of aesthetic and health. Age, breast size, child expectancy and likelihood of breastfeeding of the patient must be taken into account during breast reduction. Before this 1-hour operation, breast size deemed suitable by the patient is the goal and minimum scar and the most comfortable recovery period are aimed. Fast and smooth recovery period after the operation will positively impact the patient’s psychology. Although there is a possibility that breast tissue may grow again due to weight gain, they will never be as large as pre-operative period and our patients maintain aesthetic breasts throughout their lives. In addition, breast reduction operations do not prevent patients from breastfeeding. Procedure targets not the milk glands but the excess fat. In breast reduction operations, utmost care is taken for numbness issue in repositioning or nipple. Maintenance of nipple’s sensation depends on not affecting the area from the amount of skin removed and the continuance of the blood circulation. Continuing sensation of the nipple is also very important for the stimulation of nipples in breastfeeding function. In addition, symmetry is indispensable for both breasts and nipples.
