How is a Breast Reduction performed?

During the procedure, excess skin and tissue is removed, sagging breast tissue is reshaped, and the nipples are moved to an ideal, balanced position. The breasts will be made even and symmetrical.

The procedure usually takes about two hours and is performed under general anaesthetic.

The process of lifting the breast to achieve the ideal shape will often involve making two incisions, one beneath the breast and one extending to the edge of the nipple, or areola, creating an inverted T shape. Usually the nipples will not be detached, preserving all sensation and the functionality of the milk ducts. Most patients undergoing breast reduction surgery can return home the same day.

How is the ideal surgery method determined?

The size and weight of the breast, the position of the breast wall, and the patient’s ideal result are all factors that will influence which surgical method Dr Tiryaki considers most suited to the patient. The ideal breast reduction should combine the most beautiful and natural-looking result with the fewest number of surgical incisions, so all of these considerations will be discussed and carefully evaluated during the consultation process.

Does a breast reduction leave any scars?

A breast reduction will leave small scars, which are usually most visible in the first three months after the operation. They will become less visible with time, and generally look like thin white lines after about a year. Most scars are hidden under the breasts. The degree to which scars fade or disappear will be largely dependent on the healing ability of the individual patient’s skin. Factors that can influence scar length include the size and position of the breast. All of these factors will be discussed with Dr Tiryaki during the consultation process.

How long is the recovery time for a breast reduction?

The healing process usually takes from one to two weeks. Most patients can return to normal life after about a week. A sport or support bra should be worn for three weeks.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS


As with all surgical procedures, patients must abstain from taking blood thinners and limit both alcohol consumption and smoking as much as possible. Ideally, a patient should abstain entirely from smoking and drinking alcohol in the last couple of days preceding surgery. We recommend that all patients have a breast ultrasound or mammogram less than three months before a breast reduction operation.

Breast reduction surgery usually takes about two hours and is performed under general anaesthetic. Patients usually return home the same day.

The bandages are removed two days after the operation, and you can shower after two or three days. You can return to normal life after about a week, but you should not drive a car for at least 10 days. We recommend wearing support or sport bras for three weeks following a breast lift. Dr Tiryaki will suggest the most suitable option. As with all surgical procedures, you should stop smoking for the duration of the two weeks following the operation, and you should not participate in any activities that will increase blood pressure.

Patients may experience mild pain in the first few days after surgery. This can be managed with simple painkillers. You may also see some bruising or oedema.

Most breast reductions will not disturb the operation of the milk ducts, as the nipples usually remain fully attached to the breasts at all times. Should a different method be necessary for an effective breast reduction, Dr Tiryaki will discuss this with you in advance. In all other cases, you should expect to be able to breastfeed normally.

The results of a breast lift are considered permanent. The shape of the breasts will gradually settle in the three months following surgery. For the best long-term results patients should maintain a healthy weight and lifestyle, as both age and gravity may eventually change the form of the breasts. Breast implants are also permanent and do not need to be replaced.
