Women Breast Reduction in Iran all you need to know
Mammoplasty in Iran
Breast reduction is often therapeutic surgery for both men and women.
In this article, all the necessary information about breast reduction surgery in Iran has been mentioned. If there is any ambiguity or question, you can raise it in the comments section so that it can be answered by a specialist doctor.
Big breasts increase the attractiveness of the female body. However, why do women have breast reduction surgery?
We must say that often breast reduction surgery or mammoplasty is a therapeutic procedure and is performed due to severe pain in the neck, back and shoulders of a person.
This severe pain occurs due to the weight of the breasts on the spine and shoulders.
Sometimes it affects the shape of the spine and causes skeletal problems, that is, the person suffers from hunchback.
By performing breast reduction procedure in Iran, in addition to eliminating all these complications, you will have round, beautiful, upturned and proportional breasts at a very low cost.
Breast reduction, which is scientifically called reduction mammoplasty, is a surgery with the following goals:
- To reduce the size of large breasts
- Breast lift and placing the nipple in a more natural position
- Changing the size of the areola (the colored area around the nipple) to a more suitable size.
Large breasts are often caused by genetics, obesity, and sometimes some hormonal drugs.
Mammoplasty can be a source of great satisfaction because by reducing the breast size, a woman can be freed from the pain and limitation of physical activities due to the presence of large and hanging breasts.
With breast reduction surgery, in addition to fitting the female body, the person’s body shape is also corrected. And with the freedom from the extra weight and size of the breast, it allows you to wear clothes that you couldn’t before.
Procedures Before Breast Reduction Surgery
Before Reduction mammoplasty, talk to your doctor about the underlying diseases and medications you are taking and about your desired breast size.
The doctor will tell you how much you can achieve what you want.
If you want to breastfeed in the future, be sure to inform your doctor. So that the doctor can make the right decision about the procedure and the amount of breast reduction.
The doctor will ask you to do a blood test, ultrasound, and if you are over 35 years old, a mammogram and possibly a heart consultation.
On the day of surgery, bring your ID card, test results and someone with you. On the morning of the surgery, you must be fasting and you should not even drink water. Go to the bathroom the night before surgery.
2 weeks before breast reduction surgery for women, avoid taking blood thinners including aspirin, vitamin E tablets, and herbal supplements.
To facilitate the healing process, it is better to stop using alcohol, cigarettes, hookah and any narcotic drug at least 2 weeks before.
Smoking and narcotic drug interfere with blood supply to wounds and may slow down the wound healing process, make the wound dark and ugly, and even cause tissue death and infection.
Alcohol causes vasodilation, swelling, more bleeding and slows down the healing process.
How long after delivery can we perform breast reduction surgery?
If you do not intend to breastfeed the baby, it is better to perform breast reduction surgery 6 months after giving birth.
If you have just finished breastfeeding your baby, you can do breast reduction surgery after two months.
Good candidate for Breast Reduction Surgery (Mammoplasty Surgery)
Suitable candidates for breast reduction surgery are women who do not have serious health problems, have very large breasts, have a relatively normal weight, and their breast growth is almost complete (about 18 years old).
The reason for waiting for full breast growth is that further breast growth may change the results of breast reduction for women(mammoplasty) and you may need another surgery in the future.
Usually, this surgery can be performed until the age of 60, and after 60 years, the patient’s health status should be checked.
Women who are planning to have children in the near future should consider postponing female breast reduction. By doing breast reduction surgery, you will not have any problems with pregnancy and breastfeeding in the future.
But pregnancy and extreme fluctuations in weight and breastfeeding affect the shape of the breast. Just remember to inform the surgeon about your pregnancy and breastfeeding intentions during the consultation.
Severe weight gain and loss and hormonal changes may also affect the breast size and you may need to repeat the breast surgery.
If you have diabetes, if your fasting blood sugar is below 115, you can perform breast reduction surgery with the approval of your endocrinologist and plastic surgeon.
But if you are taking insulin, all cosmetic and necessary procedures are prohibited.
If you have high blood pressure and your blood pressure is controlled under the supervision of a doctor, you can perform breast reduction with the advice of a cardiologist and anesthesiologist. Otherwise, anesthesia with high blood pressure may be problematic.
How to perform Breast Reduction Surgery ( Types Of Breast Reduction Surgery )
Breast surgery for breast reduction may be performed in one of the following three ways:
- Cutting and removing with pedicure technique: In this method, other tissues are removed while the blood vessels and nerves of the nipple are still connected to it (this method is the most common and least complicated mammoplasty method).
In the Pedicure method, the size of the breast is reduced, with a breast lift, it gives the breast a well-shaped and round form and, with reduction of the areola of the nipple.
After removing tissue, fat and extra skin, it places the nipple in the right place.
Because in this method, the blood vessels and nerves of the nipple are not cut during the procedure, as a result, the nipple will still have sensation and will be prominent. Except in very rare cases, the pedicure technique should always be used.
- Breast Reduction with Liposuction: It is done only to reduce the excess fat of the breast (and not the tissue of the breast glands), but the shape of the breast is not corrected.
In cases where it is not necessary to remove a large amount of breast volume, liposuction alone can reduce breast size by removing excess fat deposits in and around the breast.
But you should know that although the breast size can be reduced by liposuction, the excess skin will not be reduced in this way, and the location of the nipple will not change or the size of the areola will not be reduced.
- Removal and grafting of the nipple: in which the tip and extra tissues are removed, then the tip is transplanted in its place on the newly formed breast (this surgery is rarely necessary).
Breast Reduction Surgery Scars
As you can see in the picture, 3 incisions are made on the breast.
- Incision around the areolae
- Incision from the areolae to under the breast
- Incision under the breast and the invisible part of the breast
The scar of the incision around the areolae and under the breast is completely faded and invisible, and the incision from the areolae to the under breast is a vertical line on the breast, which often needs more time to fade, and after a few years it either completely fades, or to a The very thin line becomes silver, which is hardly visible.
Breast Reduction Surgery Recovery
Breast reduction is a 2 to 4 hour procedure that is performed either with general anesthesia or anesthesia in the breast area. Depending on the volume to be removed from the breast, you may need to stay overnight in the hospital.
When you wake up, you will find that you are wearing a tight bra or band aid. Thin tubes (drains) may be placed near the surgical incisions, to drain the fluid and blood that accumulates within a few days after the surgery.
You will see that the back pain, neck and shoulder pain that you felt before the breast reduction surgery have disappeared to a great extent.
Pain and discomfort caused by the procedure can usually be controlled with oral medications.
Approximately three days after the surgery, the drain is removed. And you can take a shower afterwards.
Sutures, if non-absorbable, are removed 10 days to a maximum of two weeks after surgery.
Your Responsibilities after Breast Reduction Surgery
In the first days and even weeks, swelling is completely normal and do not worry about the shape of your breasts.
In the first days, it is better to use a diet of juicy and low-salt foods.
Do not take a bath for three days and always keep the stitches dry.
After breast reduction surgery, you must sleep on your back. Avoid sleeping on your side as much as possible and never sleep on your stomach.
Also, when sleeping, use two pillows under your head so that the head is higher than the body; This will reduce pain and swelling.
To reduce the swelling as much as possible, use a cold compress (not ice) for the first three days and a warm compress (not hot, about 35 degrees) for the next three days.
Taking vitamin C is also recommended to reduce swelling.
After breast reduction, it is better to walk as soon as possible after surgery. However, your physical activity will be limited for the next several days as the wounds heal.
You are advised not to lift anything heavy or do anything that involves shaking or pulling for 6 weeks.
You will be asked to wear a special bra all the time for a few weeks (about 8 weeks) after breast reduction surgery so that your breasts do not move during healing and do not take it off even at night.
Within two weeks of breast reduction surgery, or as soon as you feel ready, you can resume normal activities and go to work.
As long as you don’t lift heavy loads, don’t even lift 2 kg in the first weeks, don’t run, and avoid doing anything that causes your breasts to jump up and down or hit them during the healing process.
Pineapple fruit is effective in healing the surgical site sooner, or take Anahil tablets that contain pineapple extract.
It is better to use restorative creams to better heal the wounds and fade the lines under the breast as much as possible.
After removing the stitches or if the stitches are absorbable, start using these creams about 7 to 10 days after the surgery and apply them twice a day in the morning and at night.
Breast Reduction Surgery Risks
Possible risks and complications of breast reduction surgery are:
Blood loss, accumulation of blood or fluid under the skin, infection and all the possible risks of liposuction (if this method is used), necrosis of fat or skin, blood clots, and cardiac and pulmonary complications.
In addition, there are risks related to anesthesia. These are possible complications of almost all surgeries and fortunately are not very common.
Bruising and swelling are common side effects of this procedure. You will have a little pain on the first day of the surgery, which is nothing to worry about because it can be completely controlled with oral medications.
Remaining scars: Scars take 6 to 18 months to fade, but the amount of fading depends on your skin type and how you take care of it. But in general, the creation of undesirable scars is one of the possible complications of this procedure.
Asymmetry: There is a possibility that there may be asymmetry or irregularity in the design and shape of the breast.
It is not always possible to create perfect symmetry between the two breasts, but if this problem occurs, it can often be easily solved with an outpatient reconstructive procedure, even in the office.
Loss of breast sensation: After breast reduction surgery, there is a possibility of loss of breast sensation. In most cases, this problem is solved with the passage of time and up to six months.
Decrease in milk volume in breastfeeding: There is a possibility of decrease in milk volume in women who plan to breastfeed.
In some cases, if the doctor is not careful, there is a possibility of stopping breastfeeding. Be sure to talk to the doctor about the intention of pregnancy and breastfeeding before the surgery so that he can take the necessary measures.
At the Iran Surgery Center, we have taken all the necessary measures to prevent these problems and have reduced the possibility of complications to almost zero.

We use a bleeding-free technique for breast reduction surgery
The advanced technique we use in breast reduction has several advantages over other clinics. Our method is without bleeding. Using a surgical device, the surgeon burns a small blood vessel by opening each breast tissue. To reduce excessive bleeding during surgery, which helps control bruising and speed recovery.
We use a suture technique that reduces scarring and speeds up the healing process
Closing incisions at the end of surgery is what sets us apart from other plastic surgeons. We use a 3-layer system for sutures to speed wound healing. In these three layers, which are done from the inner and deepest layer to the most superficial layer.
In the first and deepest layer, the suture is made of a material that is slowly absorbed by the body and this suture remains in the body for several months to completely close the deepest layer.
The second layer of this suture is absorbed faster than the deep layer and is used in suturing both ends of the incisions to reduce the pressure created by visible wounds on the surface of the skin.
The last layer of sutures is used to close incisions in the surface of the skin. These sutures, which are suitable for the soft tissues of the outer layer of the skin, are absorbed sooner than other sutures so that the final wounds become thin and faint lines.
In addition to the suture system, we use medical adhesive on the incisions after breast reduction procedure. The adhesive helps to reduce the pressure on the cuts during repair. The less pressure is applied to the wounds, the smaller and more invisible they will be after recovery.
