Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction

Women with big and saggy breasts have not only an aesthetic problem. Excessively big breasts lead to certain serious problems such as;
 
Back and neck pains
Rashes under the breasts
Inability to stand upright, and the formation of a slight spinal curvature
Painful grooves on the shoulders, caused by bra straps.
 
We see that such big breasts also impede the daily physical activities of our patients. This surgery that usually takes 2.5 to 3 hours should be done under general anesthesia. Before the patient falls asleep, the marking process is carried out while she stands. The new location of the nipple and the places to be removed are determined. After anesthesia, the skin, adipose tissue and milk glands identified as excess in the plan are removed. The remaining tissues are combined in a certain order, and consequently, new breasts suitable for the patient's body are formed. The patient stays in the hospital overnight, and is discharged the next day. The patient's hand, arm movements are restricted, and the sutures are removed within in 2-3 weeks. Breast reduction operations are very serious surgical operations that should definitely be performed by an experienced plastic surgeon.
