As long as there is no significant health problem, breast aesthetic surgeries are performed in order to improve the various asymmetrical conditions and appearances of the breast in order for the person to have a better and higher quality appearance. Then the best treatment is decided for them and the doors of quality life are opened.
The operation is usually performed for reasons such as sagging, not looking beautiful, not being symmetrical, not being able to find clothes, due to the fact that the breasts are too large. Medical reasons, on the other hand, are performed to relieve shoulder, neck and back pains due to the size and therefore weight of the breasts or to prevent hunchback. Depending on the size of the breasts, the prevention of diaper rash, fungus, infection or wound formation under the breast, and the elimination of pressure sores caused by bra straps are among the reasons for breast reduction surgery performed for medical reasons.
Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia. The surgery is completed within 2.5 to 4 hours, depending on the size of the breast, using the lollipop incision and reverse T incision methods. In determining the method, breast size, position of the nipple according to the breast fold, breast tissue, skin structure, distance between the nipple and shoulder and hip are taken into consideration. In the lollipop incision method, the circumference of the nipple is cut circularly and then the breast tissue and excess skin tissue are removed. In the procedure performed according to the physical appearance of the person, the nipple can be moved upwards when necessary. The skin is closed, taking care not to damage the milk ducts, and then a drain is placed in the area to accelerate the healing and expel the accumulated blood in the breast, and the operation is completed. In the reverse T incision method, an incision in the form of an inverted T letter is made in the lower part of the breast. After the excess breast tissue and skin are removed, the operation is terminated as in the lollipop type incision method. After breast reduction surgery, the person must stay in the hospital for one day. After the drain is removed and the dressing is done, the patient is discharged.
After the operation, control is made at the end of the 1st and 2nd weeks. During the control in the 2nd week, the stitches are removed and special creams are used to reduce the scars. Thanks to the special bra, the patient can return to his daily life after 1 week of home rest. However, it is recommended to wear a special bra similar to a sports bra for 6 weeks. Mild stinging and tingling may be felt in the breasts for 6 to 12 months after the operation. However, this feeling does not reduce the quality of life of the person.
Do not lift anything heavy for 3-4 weeks.
Sports should be avoided for at least 1 month.
