How is breast reduction performed?

In breast reduction surgery, breast tissue and skin is adjusted according to the patient’s body proportion by removing excessive tissue and skin.

It is inevidable to have some scars after a reduction mammaplasty surgery. These scars are circular shaped around the areola and inverted T-shape down from the nipple.

Breast Reduction Questions

Some women who have breast reduction surgery can breastfeed their children without any problem. However, it can often be difficult to predict this beforehand. Still, in general, a blockage will occur in the milk ducts. Therefore, even if you have milk, you may not be able to breastfeed in full efficiency.

Early stage complications (bleeding, infection, hematoma, pain, fat necrosis, etc.) after breast reduction surgery are rare complications in the hands of an experienced plastic surgeon in good hospital conditions. These are generally side effects that may occur in all surgeries. The most important complication specific to this surgery is the color problem that may occur in the areola. In this case, there is blackening in the areola area, which is very rare but possible. Long term risks can be asymmetry, scars, breastfeeding problems. These chances can be reduced with a good post operation follow-up accompanied by surgeon

After breast reduction, there will be a scar on the breast. However, this scar can be minimum according to the skin type. In very rare cases, if the problem is only large and sagging breasts, liposuction can reduce the breasts a little. But this shrinkage is very limited and causes the breasts to sag a little.

There may be many reasons for this. Due to aging and hormonal changes, breast tissue decreases and shrinks. This causes the breast to be more and more empty inside and sag. Mothers that breasfeed are more likely to have sagging breasts. As the breasts are fuller before breastfeeding period, they become stretched and loose once the milk ducts are empty. When this is repeated many times, the breasts sag naturally.

Pain level after breast reduction surgery is not different from other surgeries. It can be easily controlled with painkillers and cold compression. Occasional burning and stinging may occur during the 6-12 months postoperatively. However, a very severe pain is not very common.

Patient’s shoulder and chest width and general body dimensions are the criterias used to obtain aesthetically proportional breast. For the patients that would need to maintain breastfeeding function, the breast can be reduced to some extent. In the preoperative consultation, your doctor will give you information about how small your breasts can be.
