- What is Breast Reduction – mastopexy surgery? It is applied to which patients?
Breast reduction is a surgery to reduce breast volume in patients with excess breast volume. Mastopexy is also performed concurrently because the breast sagging occurs in these patients at the same time. Sometimes, even if the breast is not large, especially in patients who lose weight, the breast may sag to a size which disturbs the patient. In these patients, only the excess skin of the breast is removed and the mastopexy is performed.
- Do diseases such as diabetes, asthma, blood pressure prevent breast reduction surgery?
Although these diseases may adversely affect wound healing, they do not interfere with surgery if treatment is appropriately performed.
- How to prepare before breast reduction surgery? Which examinations are done?
First, the following tests and examinations are applied to each patient before surgery
- Blood biochemistry tests
- Hepatitis tests
- Whole Breast ultrasound
- EKG (Cardiac radiography)
- Chest radiography
After these tests Anesthesia, Internal Medicine, Cardiology and Chest Diseases perform necessary examinations and investigations. Relevant specialists will make recommendations about pre-operative treatments if necessary. Thus, the problems that may arise during and after the surgery are reduced to the minimum.
- How is the breast reduction surgery performed?
The entire procedure is performed under general anesthesia. The breast skin is released with an incision made from the lower part of the breast. The nipple is then released by separating from the surrounding area. If breast reduction is also performed, the necessary amount of lipid in the breast is removed. A new place is prepared for the nipple above the breast skin. The excess of skin is removed. Nipple is sutured to its new place. Then the skin is aesthetically closed again. The process is terminated by wrapping the breast with elastic bandage.
- Why is blood thinner used in breast reduction surgery?
During each surgery, there is a possibility of blocking blood vessels with intravascular blood clots. This can lead to serious problems when it is a vessel that feeds vital organs such as the heart, lungs and brain. As the weight of the patients increases, the risk of embolism increases. There is a high possibility of embolism (blood clot), especially in overweight patients. Because of this, blood thinner is given to these patients.
- Will there be pain after breast reduction surgery?
There is very little pain after breast reduction surgery intervention. Still, the phrase “she/he had a surgery, of course there will be pain” is extremely wrong. No patient should feel pain in the 21st century. Pain is completely avoided by administering post-operative analgesic to each patient. The important point here is this: Pain threshold of each person is different. Again, drug tolerance and bioavailability from the drug are different. Therefore, treatment cannot be standard. The pain relief treatment should be regulated separately depending on the needs of each patient.
- Will there be a scar after breast reduction surgery?
Since the incisions are aesthetically sutured, the aesthetic results are also fairly good. The incisions usually remain in the invisible part of the breast down the nipple and remain under the breast, leaving a thin line that will not be noticed from outside during normal posture. After a few months, these lines will become almost invisible. After the wound heals, you will be recommended a cream for less scar appearance. You will get much better aesthetic results if you use it for three months.
- When does nutrition start after breast reduction surgery?
Nutrition can be started on the evening of the surgery.
- Is it possible to get up and go back to work immediately after breast reduction surgery?
It is possible to stand up in the evening of the surgery. In a week, you can go out and do your daily work. It is best to wait for a month to return to work.
- When are the stitches removed after breast reduction surgery?
It is not necessary to take the stitches as dissolvable stitches are frequently used. If a non-dissolvable stitch is used for a different reason, the stitch is checked and removed when you arrive for a follow-up on the tenth day.
- When can you have a shower after breast reduction surgery?
You can take a shower when you’re out of the hospital. There is no problem with the sutures getting open and wet. After showering, dry with a clean towel, apply batticon on the sutures and wait for them to dry. Batticon does not cause permanent stain in your clothes. There is no need to use batticon after the tenth day.
