Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Specialist Operator, Turkish Doctor said that sharp, large breasts cause stooping.

Turkey Medicals member and JCI hospital in Istanbul, Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Specialist Op.Dr. “Women of our country have phenotypically large breasts. Although there is a perception among the public that a big is more aesthetic, being too big can be a problem. The weight of the chest is carried directly by the back and neck vertebrae. Constant stress on the back and neck vertebrae can cause deformity of the spine or even hump. Due to a neck hernia in these women in the advanced period numbness may appear on the 4th and 5th fingers. Such patients receive physical therapy for back, neck pain. Treatment of pain may not be possible unless the current cause is corrected.

Large breasts cause a collapse on shoulders. Breast reduction surgery performed at an early stage protects the health of the spine.

Again, the development of fungus and diaper rash under the breast can be observed quite often. It is difficult in terms of cleanliness and hygiene. Large breasts tend to sag due to weight. Breasts that protrude from the sides, extending to the armpit, complicate everyday arm movements. It also makes the woman look more overweight than she is.

They are forced to wear larger sizes. They have difficulty participating in sports activities. All this affects the woman’s self-esteem and social life. Breast size reduction is only possible with surgery in Turkey. Although breast reduction surgery is considered like plastic surgery, it is a necessity in most women.

The most common cancer in women is breast cancer

Op., who stated that breast reduction surgery does not cause breast cancer Dr. said “Breast tissue is evaluated by breast ultrasound or mammography in patients who need it before surgery. If there is a mass in the breast before surgery, it is possible to remove it at the same time. The tissue that comes out after breast reduction is pathologically examined. In studies, it has been shown that it contributes to the early diagnosis of breast cancer and due to a decrease in breast tissue after breast reduction surgery, the likelihood of developing cancer also decreases. Reduction of large breasts is possible only by surgery.

The operation is performed under general anesthesia. Antalya breast lift is also provided at the same time. If there is an asymmetry in the size and shape of the breast, this can be corrected during surgery. Breast tissue is partially preserved. It is partially possible to breastfeed after childbirth with protected breast tissue. Breastfeeding function may be affected in proportion to the amount of tissue removed. A week after the operation, it can easily be returned to everyday life,” he said.

Op. who noted that the goal of breast reduction surgery is to achieve a size and shape that is compatible with the body. Dr. said, “This is proportional to the patient’s height, shoulder width and rib cage diameter. How much it can be reduced is planned by the patient’s chest structure and desire. In patients planning to become pregnant in the future, minimal reduction is preferred to maintain lactation function. Surgery on breasts that are not excessively large can be postponed until after pregnancy and breastfeeding. But since the spine can be permanently affected at a young age in excessively large breasts, it is recommended to do it at an early stage. The most commonly observed increase in self-confidence in patients after surgery. Patients become more comfortable choosing clothes even at an early stage.

If it is operated on at an early stage, the posture disorder and the collapse in the shoulders improve. For this reason, early intervention is important to maintain spinal health,” was explained.
