Does Breast Reduction Surgery Prevent Pregnancy And Breastfeeding?

Op. Dr. Serif Yavuz 

Breast surgeries include the most preferred surgeries of recent years. Breast reduction surgery is an operation that makes the lives of many women more comfortable and prevents most physical ailments as well as aesthetic concerns. this surgery is preferred in cases where the breasts are larger than normal and/or if there is sagging as well. 


What are the problems of large breasts?

We can state these problems as follows;

  • Waist and neck pain caused by the weight of the breasts
  • Inability to perform many daily or sportive movements, restriction of movements
  • Bra marks that injure the shoulders and back
  • Fungi and wounds under the breast
  • Inability to find suitable clothe
  • Disturbing gaze of other people

Who is suitable for BReast Reduction surgery?

Many women who have the above problems decide on breast reduction surgery. However, the surgery is suitable for women aged 20 and over, whose breast development is completed. In addition, the patient should share some information with the surgeon before the operation. If a pregnancy is planned in the postoperative period, the surgeon must be informed. Because in breast reduction surgery, while fat tissue is removed, the milk glands are also affected. The surgery is not an obstacle if a pregnancy will be planned however, it is surgery with risks associated with breastfeeding.

Breastfeeding After Breast Reduction

Breast milk is the most essential for a baby’s development. In addition, breastfeeding is an action that strengthens the emotional bond established between mother and baby. Breast reduction surgery is an operation that may affect the milk gland and milk ducts. For this reason, every issue should be discussed in detail with the surgeon before the operation.

Women who say “I want to reduce my breasts” and planning pregnancy should consider these risks. In breast reduction surgery, breast tissue is removed, and milk ducts are scattered in the breast tissue. For this reason, milk ducts can be partially or completely affected during surgery. This situation does not pose a problem for patients who have completed family planning or whose age is advanced for pregnancy. However, patients planning to become mothers should evaluate the reduction surgery together with the surgeon and consider the risks.

What is the cost of Breast Reduction surgery?

Breast reduction surgery is an operation performed under general anesthesia and takes up to 4 hours. The patient is checked for two weeks after the operation and stitches are removed at the end of these two weeks. The patient can return to his social life after a week, but it is recommended to take care of herself, regularly use her special bra and special cream for stitches.

Recovery is faster in patients who pay attention to these points. Those who have breast reduction surgery get rid of many medical ailments with their lighter bodies. The positive change in their appearance also makes them more self-confident and happier. People who have clear thoughts about pregnancy and breastfeeding can continue a more comfortable life after the surgery. For more detailed information please contact us directly.
