The aim of aesthetic interventions for the congenital or developmental problems of the breasts, which is an important element of the physical structure of women, is to obtain a symmetrical, natural and permanent cosmetic result without disturbing the breast functions (nipple sensation, lactation).
To whom is it done?
Large and drooping breasts can negatively affect quality of life depending on appearance and weight. Back and waist pains due to posture disorders, breastfeeding problems, bra strap marks on the shoulders, restriction in sports and similar activities, and psychological problems are common.
How is the surgery done?
The appropriate technique is selected by considering the patient’s age, general condition, breast and chest wall structure. The operation takes 3-4 hours under general anesthesia.
Are nipple sensation and lactation function affected?
Nipple sensation and lactation function are preserved (90%) in mild-to-moderate enlargements.
Will there be any traces?
Although the cosmetic result is satisfactory in any case, it is inevitable that there are scars around the nipple and extending down a vertical line, sometimes cutting it horizontally (inverted T).
It is an operation performed by preserving the breast tissue in cases where sagging breasts cause problems. Its duration is 2-3 hours. Scars similar to those in reduction surgery may remain. Nipple sensation and lactation function are usually unaffected.
What should be considered after the operation?
You will come out of the surgery with bandages/bands covering your breasts and spend the first night in the hospital. Drains are in dressing and 2-3. It comes off/falls off spontaneously with the first dressing on the first day. The sports bra is used for 2 months and heavy exercise is avoided during this period.
What are the complications?
In addition to the undesirable situations that may be in question for any surgery, wound healing problems can be seen in the early period, especially in smokers.
