The breast reduction procedure is done to reduce the size of the breast and reshape it to be proportional to the body by removing excess breast tissue, adipose tissue and skin from the breast. This increase of volume and sagginess can be due to genetic factors, weight gain or breastfeeding. Big breasts, which can form a serious problem at all ages are the reason for neck and back pain, collapse in the shoulders, redness under the breasts and hygiene problems. For these specific reasons, breast reduction surgery always has a high patient satisfaction rate.

Frequently Asked Questions

There will be a reverse T-shaped scar extending around the entire circumference of the nipple and under the breast. The scars will have some redness to them for the first 3-6 months but they will fade over time and become less obvious. It is recommended to use some creams to help the incision scars heal more aesthetically.

Since a significant part of the lactiferous ducts are preserved during a breast reduction surgery, there will be no problem in lactation. However some lactiferous ducts may be removed during the removal of breast tissue which may cause a decrease in the amount of milk produced.

Unless there is excessive weight gain, pregnancy and/or hormonal problems, the result is permanent and the breasts cannot reach a large volume as they had before.
