The importance of breast tissue, size and shape is very important in the aesthetic appearance of the female body. It is possible to put breasts on female sexuality and aesthetics. Many women complain of small or shapeless breasts, while many women complain of large or unsymmetrical breasts. When it comes to breasts, the limits of plastic surgery are quite wide.
The size of the breast is determined to a large extent by genetic codes, namely DNA structures. The remaining small portion is determined by nutritional habits and other environmental factors, as a combination of all these, the breast can be large or small. In rare cases, situations where one breast is much larger than the other breast can be encountered.
The development of the breast in healthy women begins with adolescence and lasts until the twenties. After this process, environmental factors completely affect the volume and shape of the breast. Contrary to popular belief, gaining too much weight does not directly affect breast volume. There is also a link between hormone activities and breast size or smallness. Evidence of this is seen after pregnancy and childbirth. During these periods when hormonal activities are at the peak, the breast may be thirty percent larger than it should be.
Breasts can be distorted due to factors such as progression of age, pregnancy, weight gain, and use of wrong bras. Aesthetic intervention is required to the breasts to eliminate these distortions. Interventions can interfere with the volume of the breast or shape the breast over the connective tissues without touching the volume. Operations such as filling the breasts, changing the symmetry, changing the orientation of the nipples and reducing the breast can be performed.
Depending on the condition of the patient, certain combinations can also be created with related methods. It is considered acceptable that the female breast is upright, plump and the nipples are facing up. The purpose of all breast aesthetic surgeries is to achieve this appearance.
Today, the number of surgeries performed to shape the breast is rapidly increasing. Since our country is in a very advanced position in breast aesthetics, many patients from abroad come to our country to shape their breasts. A considerable number of people apply directly for breast reduction surgeries. Contrary to popular belief, the number of patients applying at a younger age rather than at advanced ages is higher. The ideal age for breast reduction surgeries is between 18-25.
Even if environmental factors are ideal, there may be excessive growth of breasts due to genetic features. At the same time, the current symmetry problems can be carried forward. Breast reduction surgery can be performed in any situation where the breast affects the comfort of life. Non-surgical but ineffective methods are recommended for patients who are afraid of making a surgical incision.
Breasts lose their aesthetic appearance after exceeding a certain size. In addition to the disappearance of the aesthetic appearance, it creates serious effects on the comfort of life. Living with large breasts for a long time also impairs the body’s health. Nowadays, according to the data collected from the field, large breasts pose problems such as:
All these situations make breast reduction operations mandatory. When people do not have breast reduction surgery, they are dealing with increasing problems day by day.
In addition to all these reasons, some people may develop different problems caused by large breasts. Any situation in which the breast exceeds the ideal size affects health negatively. Although it is possible to endure large breasts for a while because of their appearance, everyone wants their breasts to be reduced due to health problems. There are even those who want their breasts removed completely.
Breast reduction operations can be done in two different ways. Fat removal (liposuction) operations are easier but relatively ineffective. Breast reduction surgeries performed with surgical incisions give much more effective and permanent results.
Breast reduction operations with liposuction:
The main method is breast reduction surgeries performed with the help of surgical incisions. These surgeries are performed as follows:
Breast reduction operations can take between one and two hours. How to act during the operation phase is determined by the wishes of the patient. It is tried not to damage milk channels in women who desire to become pregnant again. If the woman applying to breast reduction surgery is not likely to be pregnant or thought again, milk channels can be ignored and more aesthetic looks can be obtained.
There is a possibility of scarring after the operations, but thanks to advanced techniques, the seam points are closed with aesthetic methods. Due to the color mismatch in the nipple, it is almost impossible to see marks. The single scar remains inverted T, L or I in the lower region of the breast.
Although breast reduction surgeries are performed for simple and aesthetic purposes, it is necessary to prepare for both the guarantee of the next breast shape and the risks before the operation. The results are guaranteed by up to one hundred percent with the preparation process, especially before the operations involving surgical incision.
In the process before the operation, the patient chooses a doctor and hospital, conducts physical control, conducts examinations, selects the method and finalizes the operation. During the process, the patient is prepared for a surgical intervention under certain conditions. The only way to minimize the risks arising from the nature of surgery is this preparation process.
Our country is far ahead in aesthetic surgery. It is the number one in the world especially in terms of breast aesthetic surgeries. The number of plastic surgeons and hospitals that naturally perform breast reduction surgeries is also enormous. Before the operation, it will be useful to choose a hospital with experienced and sufficient equipment.
In the selection of the surgeon:
In the selection section of the hospital:
In general, the process goes like this. It is sufficient for patients to know that they have a choice.
After the hospital selection, it is investigated whether the patient is suitable for surgical intervention. Since the operation is carried out for aesthetic purposes, examinations can be carried out over a long period of time. During the physical examination of the patient, the condition of the breasts is examined. The problems are identified and the suitability of the surgery is determined as a solution. Afterwards, examinations are started to select the most appropriate method for the patient.
As a result of all examinations, the patient’s breast tissue is displayed to the finest detail. In addition to whether there is an obstacle to surgery, the way to be followed and the tissues to be taken are determined.
Based on the images obtained, the patient’s breast view after the operation is drawn and shown to the patient. After full agreement with the patient, the operation date is finalized and the things that the patient needs to do during the preparation process are specified.
During the preparation process for breast reduction surgery, extreme conditions are not entered. Since the surgery is performed for aesthetic purposes, it should be comfortable, but the risks should not be ignored. The doctor’s recommendations should be followed to ensure the success of the operation, ensure that the shaped breast remains the same for a long time, and to achieve a fast and comfortable recovery process.
Before the operation, any activity that disrupts the body condition, which is determined in the examinations and deemed appropriate, should not be entered. Especially in blood values, extreme conditions, behaviors that will disrupt breast tissue, overfeeding or discontinuation should be avoided. During the healing process, any condition that may damage the tissues and increase the risk of complications during surgery is avoided.
Controversy continues about the harms of alcohol use on the body. Although it is known that long-term and high use causes risks such as death, reasonable uses are not considered to be a problem. However, after the alcohol enters the body, it negatively affects the metabolism and liver. Alcohol consumption should be stopped completely at least one week before surgery in order to avoid these negative effects during the operation. It is recommended to take a break for at least one month after the operation.
Smoking is quite dangerous. It damages lung functions, disrupts breathing order. It increases the likelihood of anesthetic complications arising during surgery. It was found that the healing time was very long in patients who smoked and the tissues did not fully recover. For these reasons, if the surgery is at a distant date, smoking should be stopped completely. If the surgery is planned for an earlier date, it must be stopped a week in advance. Smoking should never be consumed after the operation in order to get a quick and comfortable and often full recovery.
During the reduction of the breasts and the milk ducts, the bleeding is more during the removal of the tissues. Since it is more beneficial that the blood tends to clot, it is necessary to avoid any medication that can dilute the blood and prevent it from clotting before the operation. Medicines that change the hormone balance and affect blood values should be consulted with the doctor.
At the planning stage of the operation, the doctor will ask what drugs are used and if necessary, adjust their dosage. Particular attention should be paid to painkillers used without a prescription. Any pain relievers that dilute the blood should be avoided. Generally, it is recommended to leave any medication that is not compulsory to be used one week before the operation.
Some foods can have negative effects on metabolism. In the last fifteen days of breast reduction surgeries with a long preparation period, it will be beneficial to consume such foods as little as possible or preferably not at all. Excessive fatty foods or overly acidic foods have negative effects on the general health of the body.
Some foods, especially vitamin E, make the blood more fluid. It will be beneficial not to consume such foods starting from one week before the operation. There should be no attempt to gain or lose weight before the operation. In other words, attempting to lose weight and shrink the breast volume may cause the operation to be rescheduled.
The hospitalization phase takes place on the day of the operation. From seven in the evening to the previous day, food consumption should be stopped entirely. In addition, the liquid consumption should be stopped after 10 pm. A good sleep should be observed and the hospital should be visited early in the morning. After going to the hospital, paperwork is done and taken to the patient room. After various preparations are made in his room (apron, etc.), he starts to wait for the operation time. Then, it is taken to the area where the operation will be performed, usually on a stretcher and sometimes on an outpatient basis.
No companion is required during hospitalization. There is no need for a companion since he can stand up immediately after the operation. Also, in some cases, routine tests such as blood tests and urine tests can be repeated. The operation is usually done before noon, so that the patient spends the evening at home.
Breast reduction operations are very simple, long preparation times are required and the healing process is comfortable. Since the operation is performed under general anesthesia, the patient is unconscious after the operation is completed. Until this situation disappears, the patient is rested in the room. In general, the patient is not hospitalized, but in some risky situations and when the breast volume is very large, the patient is hospitalized for a day. Very rarely, two days of hospitalization are also encountered.
In patients with very large breasts, a drain is installed to prevent fluid buildup that may be visible in the operation area. Patients with a drain should stay in the hospital for one day. On the second day, drains are removed before discharge is performed. After the drains are removed, the patient’s dressings are made and the sports bra is worn. After all these are completed, the discharge process is carried out. The patient is discharged standing. After leaving the hospital, it is recommended to go home and rest.
After the operation, the controls are done at the end of the first and second weeks. The reason for wearing the sports bra is to protect the breast from various effects and to shape it properly until the control process.
Since breast reduction operations are performed under general anesthesia, the patient does not feel the slightest pain during the operation. The effect of anesthesia continues for a while after the operation is completed. After the patient wakes up, special painkillers are given so that they do not feel pain. The patient does not feel the slightest pain during the rest period thanks to these drugs.
Drugs prescribed after the operation are painkillers and antibiotics. These drugs are written to completely eliminate the risk of infection and to prevent possible pain in advance. Patients must use the prescribed medications at the right doses and at the right time for the specified time. In this way, both the comfort after the operation is increased and the possible risks are completely eliminated.
Physician control is required to reintroduce or discontinue use of drugs before the operation. Generally, during the routine check in the second week, arrangements will be made for these drugs. Moreover, regardless of the physical effects of the operation, slight severe pain is observed from time to time for a year. These pains occur due to tissue healing. Most of the time they come out following a trauma in the region.
The operation is performed on the breasts. Naturally, it is avoided from areas that can seriously affect mobility. Since there is no intervention in the lower muscle groups, there is no harm in walking the patients after the operation. In general, patients can start walking immediately after being taken to the normal room and the effect of anesthesia has passed.
The region where the mobility is affected is the upper muscle groups. The neck, arms and shoulders are limited in terms of mobility. Excessive movements or loadings here have an impact on the shaping of the breasts. In addition, there is a possibility that the stitches thrown will burst. With all this in mind, the patient is asked to move as little as possible for a week, preferably two weeks. Without moving, the intent is not to strain the upper muscle groups. It is forbidden to lift boxes, raise arms, lift heavy, make sudden arm movements.
After the operation, dressing is made to the sutures, with the drains removed if fitted. The purpose of the dressing is to isolate the seams from the outside world and reduce the risk of infection. Dressings should be changed every two days. The reason it is not changed every day is that the blood clot formed positively affects the healing time.
The patient must go to the nearest hospital every two days after the operation to carefully change their dressings. The condition of the sutures is also checked in dressings.
There are risks associated with anesthesia, surgical procedures and intervention in the breast area in breast reduction surgeries. Thanks to today’s surgical technology and specialist physicians, although these risks are approached to zero, they cannot be reset. Various risks may arise depending on the patient’s condition, the level of expertise of the doctor, and the hospital conditions during or after each operation.
The point that should not be forgotten is that our country is at the very top level in terms of breast aesthetics. Almost all of our doctors are very experienced. For this reason, these complications are unlikely to occur, unless some extreme issues occur.
In the period after breast reduction surgery, some issues should be taken into consideration in order to maintain its success in the operation. Thanks to the utmost care for these issues, the success of breast reduction operations is guaranteed and permanence is ensured.
These are the things to be aware of in general. As long as this relatively simple surgery is supported by these issues, a successful and aesthetic appearance is inevitable. After the operation, you will be given what you need to pay attention to in writing by your doctor. It is imperative that you take maximum care of them.
After the operation, the stitches are removed on the tenth or twelfth day. The region should be treated with care until this time. In eating habits, it is recommended not to escape to the end points. Avoid excessively fatty, sugary or acidic foods. Feeding naturally and regularly is ideal for getting rid of operation shock.
With the removal of the stitches, you can return to desk work. However, these works should not require physical exertion. In the first two months, any kind of work that will tire the upper muscle group should be avoided. Starting from the second month, you can return to jobs that require physical effort. As of the third month, there is no harm in starting heavy workers and heavy sports. Since the exact results of the operation emerge from the sixth month, it will still be beneficial to treat the region with care until this time.
Sexual intercourse should be interrupted for two weeks after the operation. Afterwards, the breast area should not be tightened. Attention should be paid to breasts for at least three months.
