Women who have oversize breasts imagine small and upward looking breasts. To make big breasts look more lifted up and reduce their volume, you can have a breast reduction operation. Big breasts can give you not only aesthetic, but also medical problems. For women, big breasts lead to neck, back and shoulder pain and to rash and hygienic problems for overweight people. To eliminate these problems and look more attractive with your small breasts, you can have a breast reduction operation.
Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) is a type of mammoplasty that aims to reduce the volume of breast tissue. Breast reduction surgery is a very common aesthetic operation today. Although the surgery reduces the appearance of the breasts, it makes the breasts more beautiful and upright. After breast reduction, the patient gets rid of physical and psycho-emotional discomfort, while breast aesthetics is performed with his own tissues, breast implants are not used.
Why Do Breasts Get Bigger?
One of the most important reasons for having oversize breasts is genetic factors. Growing mammary tissue is a genetic heritage from the family. In addition to the genetic factor, factors such as gaining weight, giving birth and breastfeeding also lead to growing breasts.
Breast tissue can enlarge for various reasons. This increase in breast size and change in shape may be caused by the following factors;
- Genetic inheritance; In this case, genetics plays an important role. If relatives in your family have large breasts, your breasts are more likely to develop than usual.
- Excess weight. Often, breast size directly depends on the overall proportions of the patient’s body.
- Pregnancy and lactation. Breastfeeding is another factor that has a significant impact on the change in the shape and volume of the breast. Lactation directly stimulates the growth of the mammary glands. Generally, they cannot return to their previous volumes after breastfeeding is over. Or even if it works, they may encounter the problem of sagging.
With aesthetic surgery, the breast is reduced and the skin is stretched and shaped accordingly.
What Kind of Problems Do Big Breasts Create?
- If the person’s breasts get bigger, when she gains weight, drooping can be seen in her breasts, when she loses weight. You can eliminate this problem with breast reduction and lift operation.

How is breast reduction surgery done?
Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Since the mammary gland is mainly composed of fat and glandular tissue, the excess tissue during the operation is brought to the desired size equally from both breasts. In the presence of asymmetry, the operation is usually performed on one breast, equal to the one with the best shape of the breast. As a result of breast reduction surgery, not only the breast tissue but also the skin is reduced and a natural breast lift is achieved. Since the female breast is a very sensitive area and requires special techniques, this operation should only be performed by experienced plastic surgeons. In any case, you need to approach it carefully so that there are no complications and the breast remains tender. As the excess volume in the breast is removed, the skin tightens and the size of the areola changes with its position. Thus, when the breast tissue shrinks, breast lift is also provided. If all necessary corrections are not made during the operation, this can lead to an unsatisfactory result.

- Removal of excess skin, glandular layer and resection of adipose tissue;
