Large breasts can be a huge burden on you both physically and mentally. Problems such as back and shoulder pain, eczema or restriction in sports and social life are part of daily life for patients with significant breast size and sagging. Breast reduction gives you a new and confident attitude towards life.
Breast reduction surgery lasts approximately 2-3.5 hours and is performed under general anaesthesia. Unlike the breast lift procedure, breast reduction reshapes not only the sagging skin, but also the fat and glandular tissue.
There is basically a variety of breast reduction methods that the attending physician can use. The selection will depend on the amount of texture to remove and the shape of the chest cage.
Your doctor will decide which procedure is best for you based on your needs. All of our surgical methods are intended to achieve the lowest possible scarring result. In case of elderly patients with large breast problems, patients with extremely loose skin, and in case of loss of skin elasticity, our specialists prefer to make a T-shaped incision for breast reduction. This incision descends perpendicular to the contour of the breast head and circulates on both sides of the under-breast fold. For patients with good skin elasticity, our specialists tend to use scar protection methods. After the surgery, you will be given a special support bra to wear permanently for the next 4-6 weeks.
