What is Breast Reduction?

These are operations in which the skin, fat and breast tissue are removed to make the large and greasy breasts smaller, narrowe, and to form the breast.

Who are suitable for this operation?

Breast tissue growth associated with genetic, hormonal changes, weight gain and breastfeeding causes back pain in patients; it can even cause big breasts that can shake. It is possible that under the large breast tissue the friction-dependent rash may appear and the wounds may open. Breathing may be difficult. Daily physical activity may be limited. In fact, while large breasts make it difficult to choose clothing, a woman rejects her own social and psychological problems. Thus, such aesthetic operations can correct the physical appearance of the patient and psychology. This procedure applies to all women who have completed adolescence and breast development.

What issues should be addressed in the decision-making process?

As a result of the surgeon’s examination, the mutual exchange of information with patients depends on the size and shape of the breast, the condition of the skin, the age of the patient, the marriage and the children, and the new situation and size. At the end of the views and the dialogue, in what form and with what technique and whether the nipple is protected or not.

Do you need chest x-ray before surgery?

Pre-operative mammography film making and breast screening will be suitable for certain age groups and family members with mammalian pathology.

Which anesthesia is the application?

It is used in hospitals and general anesthesia. Although patients may be on the day of surgery, the first day of hospitalization will be appropriate.

Financial considerations

Although a single hypertrophy is not a disease in itself, it often causes discomfort and disability to the patient. As a result, certain health care systems, including the Turkish health care system, are funded after the individual merits of each case. However, in some cases, the patient must pay part price or all of the cost. Insurance companies use different policies and first turn to service providers. Make sure that the surgeon and the insurance company clearly record in writing.
