Welcome to Dr. Nazmi Baycin’s breast reduction page. As a plastic surgeon in Dubai, UAE, here I will share my professional knowledge and personal experience about the surgical techniques, recovery after procedure, tips to avoid unwanted results, risks complications and more… You will also have an idea regarding the breast reduction prices in Dubai. I will show breast reduction before and after pictures during the consultation.
Millions of women all around the world complain their size and seek a remedy. Large and also drooping breasts, lead to serious problems in the future.
The fact that the breasts are larger and heavier than normal causes neck, back, shoulder pain, strap marks on the shoulders. Can breast reduction surgery relieve back pain? Of course… And physical disfigurement arising from hunching and deviation of normal vertical posture as well.
On the other hand rash on the lower surface of the part contacting with abdominal skin may even lead fungal infections.
Furthermore, enlarged breasts lead social problems. Troubles in the selection of clothes, movement restriction and struggle to hide its size make serious headache. You can get rid of such complaints by breast reduction surgery.
All those problems may separately seem negligible complaints. However, when all of them gathered together, your life turns into a nightmare.
If you plan to have breast reduction surgery in Dubai, here, you will find out all the information you need.
First of all, clean medical history, well medical conditions, to be free of systemic diseases, such as heart disease, are essential for breast reduction surgery in terms of patient safety.
If you have enlarged breasts that cause shoulder pain, back pain, postural disfigurement, skin irritation and rashes, a breast reduction surgery is the best and precise solution for you.
And besides, if you have enlarged breasts even you do not have such complaints, you may consider breast reduction arbitrarily to improve your body image.
If your general health status allows you to have plastic surgery procedure, there is no age limitation.
My objective is to make you happy as achieving cosmetically more acceptable breasts and adjusting the size proportioned with your body with minimum surgical mark. So, breast reduction will both improve your life quality and restore your self-confidence.
Some patients seek a solution as they experienced a failed breast reduction surgery before. Breast asymmetries, inadequate reduction and poor scarring due to slipshod suturing of surgical incisions are the most common complaints of the patients consulting me. Sometimes, their corrective surgery challenges even more than to do the primary surgery. The goal is to achieve the best outcome in a single surgery.
The objective of the breast reduction surgery is to obtain a symmetrical breast with a natural shape and size. Also your breasts must be suitable for your body proportions.
According to world standards, B plus and C cup are normal. Cup is a term that refers to your breast. Do not confuse it with your bra size. Most patients express their size or the size they would like to have, usually using the size of the bra. However, the bra size refers to the circumference measurement of the chest on the nipple level. This measure increases as your back grows. Therefore the bra size is not the real expression of breast size.
But do not forget that the form of the body is variable. So there is no standard breast size suitable for everyone’s body.
In plastic and reconstructive surgery history, fathers of plastic surgery have described a myriad of surgical techniques for breast reduction so far. Some of them were popular at the time when the surgeons described first. By the time, surgeons evaluated their pros and cons. Surgeons had pursued to use the techniques which provide advantage and developed further by working on them. Most of the described techniques were common in the past.
However, contemporary plastic surgeons prefer to use selected techniques nowadays. The procedure is a surgical application of a three-dimensional geometric design based on medical knowledge.
The principle of design is based on the 3-D reduction of the 3-D round formation. In order to get targeted size and shape, I ask the question: “How much tissue will go away from particular part of the breast as relocating the nipple?”. Then, I chose appropriate technique according to the answer.
Breast reduction techniques are defined according to transfer method of the nipple to its normal position. Here I will explain the surgical techniques according to the shape of the surgical scar.
In all techniques leave a circular scar around the areola. Additional vertical scar extending down to the lower margin occur (Lollipop-shaped scar). In some techniques, additional horizontal scar along the lower margin occurs (Inverted T-shaped scar). Selection of the technique depends on the current size, reduction degree and your expectations.
If you need mild or moderate reduction, the techniques which leave lollipop-shaped scar provide the best result. However, if you have huge breasts and need a substantial amount of reduction, the technique with an inverted T-shaped scar is necessary.
The breast reduction procedure requires general anesthesia. It will last about 3 hours. To avoid blood collection inside the breasts (the risk of hematoma), I will place a suction tube which will be kept 1-2 days. You will be able to mobilize 3-4 hours after procedure. Usually you need to stay in the hospital for 1 day for safety.
Pain is concomitant after all surgeries. However you will not feel severe pain. Although the surgery will be under general anesthesia, I will also inject a local anesthetic to the surgical area. Thanks to long-lasting local anesthetic I will use during the procedure, you will not feel any pain on the first day when the actual pain is mostly felt. Pain medication relieves the pain easily that you will feel on the following days.
You will be able to come through recovery period without away from your casual life. Swelling (edema) due to the surgery and occasional bruising occurs. However, swelling and bruising disappear within 7-10 days following breast reduction.
You will be able to take a shower 2-3 days after breast reduction. Also, you can return to work casual physical activities and have a flight trip a few days after surgery.
I always stitch the skin with absorbable hidden stitches. So you will not feel stitch removal stress.
Also you may swim after 2 weeks which is enough time wound to heal.
Because of the gravity, breast settle down slightly a few months after breast reduction surgery. Submammary fold gains its normal shape, the scars fade gradually. It takes at least 6 months to gain actual form.
If a little tissue has been removed, milk comes out normally. Milk loss depends on the amount of removed breast gland. How much loss in the milk after breast reduction is not predictable. However, do not forget that there are many women who are not able to breastfeeding even if they had no surgery at all. Also there are many women who have little milk, who immediately cut off the breastfeed or who do not produce any milk.
Briefly no. Every cell in the human body has the potential to differentiate into the cancer cell. Therefore, although there is no scientific data, according to my opinion, since the number of cells that may likelihood differentiate to cancer in the future will decrease, removal of a particular amount of breast tissue also decreases the risk of breast cancer.
The complication rates of breast reduction are the compilation of medical literature data. The rates may vary depending on the patient’s medical conditions, age and current breast size. That does not mean you will experience all those complications.
Smoking, diabetes, obesity and current breast size are the major risk factors upon the complication rates. Most of the complications are related to these risk factors.
In terms of surgical risks and complications, I recommend stopping to smoke at least 1 week prior the breast reduction surgery. It is crucial to heal the wounds faster without a problem. Smoking delays wound healing process which may leads to wound dehiscence and tissue loss.
Infection and hematoma (blood collection inside the wound) are avoidable complications. Seroma (fluid collection inside the wound) may rarely occur. However, thorough surgical technique and proper post-operative medication minimize such risks.
In case of any complication, it can be managed and treated as well.
Which technique I will use ever, it definitely leaves a scar inevitably after breast reduction surgery. I always pay attention to design that will leave a minimum scar. Rarely, you may need secondary surgical scar revision depending on skin response and scar quality.
Following the surgery, in terms of size and shape, minor asymmetries between the breasts which are tolerable may occur.
The breast reduction surgery provides you a drastic improvement in body image, physical and mental condition. Complaints arising from size vanish immediately; physical lightness and comfort replaces.
IMPORTANT ! Before getting the appointment, check your medical conditions yourself.
