Who are the Best Candidates for Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast tissue develops until the end of adolescence. The weight gained during and after this period determines the size of the breasts. In some cases, individuals may have large breasts genetically. Whether due to weight gain or genetic reasons, large breasts affect patients both physically and mentally. Especially in adolescence, it may cause people to become introverted, make it difficult to find suitable clothes. Also, large breasts cause rashes and sores. Women with large breasts may have a hard time exercising. This, in the long run, causes people to stop exercising and cause them to gain weight. Any individual who has all these negative effects and does not have a health problem to prevent surgery may have breast reduction surgery.

Incisions of Breast Reduction

In breast reduction surgeries, the incision and the scar vary depending on which method is used. In breast reduction surgery, there are generally two incisions.  With breasts that have less sagging, a circle-shaped incision around the nipple is made.

The other method has an incision shaped like an inverted “T” and performed on larger breasts. This scar extends from around the nipple to the bottom of the breast. The scars disappear significantly over time. Especially in women with white skin, the scar almost disappears over the years. After the procedure, your surgeon will share important points about the scars and the things you need to pay attention to.

How is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

There are surgical techniques that vary depending on the condition of the breasts. The surgeon will decide which of these techniques are suitable for the patients with some measurements during the examination.

Breasts can be reduced in the desired amount with the method called the nipple graft technique. This technique is generally used in very large breasts. It is applied in people who do plan to have a pregnancy. It is not a preferred method because of the loss of sensation in the nipple after the procedure and the risk of preventing breastfeeding. 

Another method is to protect the nipple and lift the nipple after removing sufficient tissue. In this method, breastfeeding function is not affected since milk channels are protected. Breast reduction surgery takes an average of 2 hours depending on the condition of the breasts under general anesthesia.
