BREAST REDUCTION, BREAST AESTHETICS
Although it is an operation performed by aesthetic surgeons to correct the appearance of breasts that are larger than normal, it is a reconstructive operation to solve problems such as back pain, postural problems, headaches, shoulder pain, breathing problems, collapse of the shoulder with bra straps, hygiene problems under the breast ( rash and fungal infections).
After drawing the position of the new breasts according to the patient’s size and breast weight, excess breast tissue and skin are removed under general anaesthesia. The operation takes 2-4 hours on average. There may be some pain during the first few days when moving the arms, but this is temporary. Post-operative swelling, nipple numbness and bruising on the breast may occur and are temporary. The suture is removed on day 12-15. Aesthetic surgeons state that the patient can return to work within 1-2 weeks, depending on breast size.
