Breast Reduction - Reduction Mamoplastisi
Breasts that are too large can be surgically reduced. The effect of genetics or hormones during growth can cause women, even young girls, to develop unusually large breasts. Nutrition, excessive weight gain, pregnancy, the effects of gravity and aging all increase the probability of undesired breast enlargement. This situation can negatively affect a person emotionally and physically. Excessively large breasts can cause neck and back problems and other medical problems such as excessive sweating and unpleasant body odor.
Breast reduction surgery is usually performed under general anesthesia and can take 2-5 hours. The time required depends on the amount of skin, breast and fat tissue that is to be reduced. At the same time, hanging around the nipple can be fixed. Although there are a wide variety of surgical techniques, two types of suturing are generally performed. The first method, the so-called lollipop technique, includes a circle formation around the nipple with the sutures terminating vertically. The other technique includes a horizontal seam line, folded in at the bottom of the breast referred to as the reverse 'T' shaped method.
Breast reduction incision scars are inevitable but how bad the scars are varies from person to person. Scars typically fade over time. There is a risk that women who have reduction surgery may have difficulties breast-feeding after the procedure.
