Breast reduction operation is performed to reduce large-saggy breasts and to gain an appearance proportional to the body structure. Today, millions of women all over the world are uncomfortable with their breast size and are looking for a solution to reduce their breasts.
DO LARGE TITLES CREATE A DIFFICULT OUTSIDE VISUAL?
Big breasts pave the way for serious problems in women. The fact that the breasts are larger-heavy than normal spoils the physical appearance of the woman. Deformation and herniation in the neck and back vertebrae cause pain as a result. With the deterioration of the normal posture over time, hunching occurs. With excessive sweating of the lower surface of the breasts in contact with the abdominal skin, rash often occurs and fungal infections are observed. Bra straps leave deep marks on the shoulders and collapses occur on the shoulders. It causes limitation of movement. Psychological problems leading to depression are seen, including social problems such as efforts to hide the size of the breasts, difficulties in choosing clothes, and not being able to wear the desired clothes.
IS THERE AN AGE LIMIT FOR BREAST REDUCTION OPERATION?
The lower limit is 18, the upper limit is not. 18 as the lower limit is not an exact age, but it is my personal approach that I mostly pay attention to. The reason is that the breast development is expected to reach a certain point and the person will be able to handle the operation psychologically. Otherwise, it can be done with the permission of their parents for people under the age of 18 who have psychological and social problems due to the size of their breasts. There is no upper age limit. It can even be performed on a woman over the age of 80 who has an active life.

A serious planning is made before the operation. This planning is the most important phase of the surgery. The nipple is taken to its new place above where it should be, ideal for the body. Excess skin + mammary gland + fat in the breast is removed. These excesses are mostly in the sagging part of the lower part of the breast. After the excesses are removed, the remaining tissues are gathered in the middle, giving the breast a perpendicular and beautiful appearance.
The surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes an average of 3-4 hours. After the operation, a drain is placed to prevent blood accumulation in the breasts, which acts as a fuse. A special bra that shapes the breasts is put on when leaving the surgery. You will be hosted in the hospital for one day and your drains will be removed when you are discharged. You can take a bath on the 3rd day after the operation and your dressing will be renewed on the same day. The stitches do not need to be removed as they dissolve on their own and are hidden. You should use the bra for 3-6 weeks.

In inverted T scar, there is a scar in the nipple + the nipple extending from the nipple to the inframammary groove + in the submammary groove. The second is called a vertical scar.

WHAT WILL BE MY MEASUREMENT AFTER BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY?
First of all, I would like to make a short briefing. Numerical values such as 85-90-95 in bras indicate the measurement distance of the rib cage from your breast area. Letters such as ABCD indicate your breast size, cup size. Size A refers to small breasts, size D refers to large breasts. After operations such as breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, there is no change in the numerical value because we do not interfere with the rib cage. The intended dimensions of breast reduction surgery vary for each patient. The important thing here is that the breasts have a harmonious and natural-looking size considering the body structure of the patient. In our society, this measure is mostly B or B+. For example, if you were 90 D before the surgery, I can say that you will be 90 B or B+ after breast reduction surgery.

WHEN SHOULD I HAVE BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY?
If you describe yourself as overweight, are on a diet or are going to do it, I recommend you to have this surgery when you reach your ideal weight. Because after losing weight, your breasts will shrink a little, and if you have surgery and lose weight before losing weight, your breasts will become smaller and drooping than their ideal size.
If you are planning to get pregnant within 1-2 years; If you cannot breastfeed after pregnancy, I recommend you to have this surgery at the earliest 6 months, if you are breastfeeding, at the earliest 6 months after you stop breastfeeding. Because the gains you gain with surgery suffer some loss in the pregnancy-breastfeeding process.
