Breasts which are sexual organs in terms of both fulfilling maternity functions by providing milk and complementing the woman image begin to grow upon the onset of puberty. It is sometimes unavoidable for some breasts to grow big due to weight gain, genetic predisposition, or pregnancy, and consequently sag down by the impact of the gravity. It has a negative effect on social life of females due to having difficulties in clothing selection, marks left on shoulders by bras, the malodor or the rash occurring under breasts especially in summer, and tiring effect of neck and back pains.

Breasts that normally need to weigh about 350-500 gr extremely vary in shape and size, but the average distance from nipples and the surrounding brown tissue (areola) to the collarbone normally measures 19-21 cm. This must fall on the fold of the breast where the breast sticks to the body from the bottom. This roughly falls on the median of the shoulder joint and the elbow joint.

Breast reduction and breast lifting operations are fundamentally quite similar. The aim to bring the saggy nipple and areola to the place where they should normally be. If we remove no or less than 350 gr tissue from the breast in doing this, it is called breast lifting, if we remove more tissue, called breast reduction.

The technique to be used must be agreed upon with the patient depending on the size and position of the breast, and the patient must be informed about the advantages and disadvantages of the technique to be applied.


  • Upon deciding the operation technique in consultation with your doctor prior to the operation, your pre-operation process will start.

    Since your operation will be performed under general anesthesia, necessary blood tests will be conducted before the operation. Those tests are usually carried out on an empty stomach in the morning at the hospital where your operation will be performed. Anesthesiologist may require additional tests if deemed necessary. To make this decision, it is highly important if you have a chronic disease or allergies or take any medication. We will ask you all these questions following deciding to perform an operation, and additional tests and consultations can be requested depending on your situation.

    Quitting smoking before your operation is very important both for your health and post-operation recovery and scar healing.
