Breast Reduction Surgery

It is a surgical procedure that involves surgical removal of the excess breast tissue and excess skin, which is intended for lifting and reducing the breast. It is technically similar to breast lift, but it should be kept in mind that it is a bigger surgical procedure that leaves more noticeable scar.

WILL I HAVE SCARS?

In breast reduction surgery, you mostly have an inverted T-shaped scar that extends vertically down from the areola to the inframammary fold.

WILL MY SCARS DISAPPEAR?

Your scars will never disappear completely. However, scars on the breast usually heal well and becomes hardly visible after 6 to 12 months.

WILL I EXPERIENCE A LOSS OF NIPPLE SENSATION?

This depends on the size of your breast. This risk is higher for those who have excessively large and sagging breasts, and may vary from person to person depending on the patient's response to the surgery. We can roughly say that a loss of nipple sensation does not occur in excessively sagging breasts; however, partial or complete loss of sensation may occur in breasts that require a significant reduction.

THEY SAY THE NIPPLE MAY GET DARKER. IS IT TRUE?

Even if just a bit, there is such a risk in patients who need a considerable reduction. If the patient is also a smoker, this risk increases. However, it is not possible to say that it definitely does not occur in a nonsmoking patient. I have experienced such a case 2 times in my career. One of the patients was a smoker, while the other was a non-smoker.

WILL MY ABILITY TO BREASTFEED BE AFFECTED?

This depends on the amount of tissue to be removed, as well. The amount of your milk ducts decreases inversely proportional with the amount of the tissue removed. This can logically affect the breastfeeding capacity.

DOES SMOKING HARM?

After this surgical procedure, smoking increases the risk of nipple darkening, wound dehiscence, failing sutures etc. Such conditions can sometimes be eliminated by applying medical dressing for a period of several weeks, but they may require a second operation in some patients. As a rule, I do not perform this procedure on smoking patients for these reasons.

IS BREAST REDUCTION THAT MUCH TROUBLESOME?

Despite all these problems that I mentioned about, breast reduction is a surgical procedure that has a high satisfaction rate, and 95% of my patients leave happy with their results.
