Breast Reduction Surgery & Cost in Turkey

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

 Breast reduction surgery, also called reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size and weight of the breasts. It is a cosmetic surgery that aims to reshape and improve the appearance of the breasts in order to increase the patient’s self-confidence. However, there are also medical benefits to this procedure, as large breasts can be the cause of chronic pain in the neck, back, and shoulders, as well as skin irritation and difficulty engaging in physical activities like exercise or sports.

Breast reduction surgery is typically performed on women who have a disproportionately large breast size relative to their body frame. The breast reduction procedure is performed under general anesthesia and usually takes between two to four hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the case. The surgeon first separates the skin from the underlying fatty tissue and then makes an incision along the upper side of the nipple around the areola. The nipple is then separated from the underlying tissue, while the glandular tissue remains attached to it. The extent of the breast reduction is based on the patient’s preference and the surgeon’s recommendations. The surgeon will remove excess glandular tissue and skin, and then reshape the remaining tissue to create a more proportional breast size. The nipple and areola are also repositioned to a higher location on the breast mound to match the new breast size and shape.

The incisions made during the breast reduction procedure result in scars that are shaped like an anchor on both breasts. These scars run from the middle of the breast crease upwards to the nipple, with a small circle around the areola. The anchor follows the natural breast crease. Although the scars may appear red and raised at first, they will gradually fade and flatten over time, becoming less noticeable. In most cases, the scars in the breast crease and around the areola will be barely visible once they have healed, while the scar running vertically up to the nipple may still be visible.

After the breast reduction surgery, the patient will need to wear a surgical bra for several weeks to support the breasts during the healing process. Most patients can return to work and normal activities within one to two weeks after the surgery, but strenuous activities should be avoided for at least four to six weeks. The results of the surgery are usually long-lasting, but weight gain, hormonal changes, and pregnancy can affect the size and shape of the breasts over time.

The Breast Reduction Procedure

Breast reduction surgery is performed while the patient is under general anesthesia, ensuring that patients are pain-free and asleep during the procedure. Aesthetic Airways will create the incision type best suited for the patient’s needs and will then extract excess breast tissue and fat. Excess skin is then excised. If the nipple needs relocation, it will be moved up to the proper position. After the incisions are sutured, the breasts are cleansed and securely bandaged. Most patients are able to return home the same day of the procedure, or possibly the next day.

How Long Does Breast Reduction Surgery Take?

The duration of breast reduction surgery can vary depending on the complexity of the procedure and the amount of breast tissue to be removed. Generally, breast reduction surgery takes about 2-4 hours to complete. However, it’s important to note that the length of the surgery can be affected by several factors, including the surgeon’s experience, the patient’s health status, and the extent of the procedure.

During the initial consultation, your plastic surgeon will evaluate your individual situation and discuss the specific details of the procedure, including the expected duration of the surgery. They will also provide you with instructions for pre-operative preparation and post-operative care to help ensure a successful and safe recovery.

Planning Your Breast Reduction Surgery

If you’re considering breast reduction surgery, it can be done in an accredited outpatient facility, ambulatory surgical center, or hospital. It’s important to make arrangements for someone to drive you to and from surgery and stay with you for at least one night following the procedure. Before surgery, you may need to have a physical examination, lab work, and breast imaging studies depending on your personal or family history or age. You may also need to take certain medications or adjust your current medications. It’s important to stop smoking or vaping prior to surgery, as smoking can decrease blood flow and increase the risk of infection. Additionally, you should avoid taking aspirin and certain anti-inflammatory drugs as they can increase bleeding.

Recovery After a Breast Reduction

Recovering from a breast reduction procedure usually takes around eight weeks. However, the timeline may vary depending on your health and how well you follow the post-operative instructions. To aid in your recovery, it is necessary to wear support or compression bras for several weeks.
