As a consequence of congenital factors, hormones or excessive fat, the fat glands of the breast can enlarge. The degree of the enlargement is varied. In some cases it causes back-ache, hygienic problems, and makes everyday life difficult. For this, surgery is suggested. If growth of the breast continues after the end of the puberty, a hormone examination must be undertaken. Otherwise, after surgery the breast could still grow further and hence, continue to cause the same problems.
The process is almost the same as with mastoplexy, the difference being that in this case a given percentage of the skin, fat and the breast gland is excised. The complications are the same as with mastoplexy, but among the aesthetic surgeries of the breast the reduction can cause the most complications.
The larger the breast and the amount of tissue excised, the higher the occurrence of complications. Skin necrosis and tissue necrosis occurs more often than in any other breast surgery. There is no difference in terms of recovering and home care.
