In many cases, the word mammoplasty is associated with breast augmentation procedures, but breast reduction surgery also falls under the category of mammoplasty.
There are usually more reasons for wanting breast reduction surgery compared to those for breast augmentation surgery.
For some of you, we know that you may worry that the size of your breasts is out of proportion with the rest of your figure, making you feel self-conscious. Having overly large breasts can also have a considerable effect on the style of clothing you wear, whether you wear a swimsuit or bikini at the beach or, it can literally limit the availability of clothing sizes to suit your body’s shape.
We also perform a good number of breast reductions surgeries here at iMed Istanbul for medical reasons, principally to alleviate back problems caused by excessive weight of mammary glands.
Whether it is simply the aging process or after having babies, larger-than-normal breasts can lose their shape and begin to droop, which once again can create feelings of self-consciousness. Breast reduction surgery can not only solve the problem of sagging breasts, but if performed sooner than later can be beneficial to the success of the breast reduction surgery, as opposed to the alternative of mastopexy (breast lifting), which is performed when breasts sag excessively.
Unless for genuine medial reasons, we will not usually consider performing breast reduction surgery on any woman under 18 years of age.
The day before the surgery takes place you will have a full consultation with the surgeon to discuss what you are looking to achieve from the surgery.
Following the consult, you will have a series of radiological evaluations, including a mammography and ultrasound.
The surgery will be performed under general anaesthetic and will last between two and four hours depending on the level of reduction required, followed by an overnight stay in the hospital.
If you have any questions you would like to ask before booking your breast reduction procedure with us, please get in contact and we will be happy to provide you with all the answers you need.
If you have travelled from afar and have opted an all-inclusive package, you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the hospital for your procedure and, once finished, you will be driven back to your hotel as part of our all-inclusive service.
Unlike breast augmentation surgery, breast reduction surgery requires longer-term post-operative care as it is a more invasive form of surgery.
Over the following four days you will receive follow-up appointments with your surgeon for check-ups to ensure that the operation has gone well and that there is no sign of post-operative infection.
Immediately after the operation, a drain is inserted into the wound for 24-48 hours to release any fluid build-up. This drain is easily and painlessly removed.
You are advised not to return to work for at least one week after surgery, providing the nature of your work is ‘sedate’ and does not involve any physical activity.
A medical support bra (provided) should be worn for the first four weeks after the operation. During this period, care should be taken to avoid any strenuous body movement involving your arms or upper torso, especially lifting. Brisk walking is recommended during this period to maintain your general health.
Light activities can be resumed after six weeks, and life should return to normal within a one-to-three-month period, when all swelling and bruising should also have disappeared.
Six months after surgery your breasts should have settled into their final post-operative shape.
hi, i recommend everyone to choose this clinic for so many reasons, first of all they are very friendly and helpful. They do correspond on time every time I ask her something. She doesn’t mind to tell me everything I need. Ms Zubeyde received me at the airport holding my name. Then she took me to the hotel, arranged everything. Next day she was waiting for me and drives me to the clinic . The clinic was great. Everything was soft and comfortable. After finished everything. She drives me back to the airport. I done my hair a month ago and everything they said it’s what is happening exactly everything so I don’t really give them 10 out of 10
Three weeks ago I traveled from the Netherlands to Istanbul. I heard very good stories about this clinic, and I must say they were all true. From the beginning there was a very nice contact with Zubeyde. She picked us up from the aiport and brought us to a perfect hotel. The next day she brought me to the clinic and everything went very smoothly. Everybody was very nice and patient. The treatment took a long time but everything was well arranged. After the treatment I didn’t expierence any pain. I’m very glad I chose this clinc and I recommend it to everyone. I would like to thank Zubeyde for all the good help and answering all my questions.
I had rhynoplasty almost a month ago and i am pleased with the results. Zubeyde Akdas made my stay stress free. She collect me from the airport and drove me to the hotel,where i had nice clean room and very friendly staff made my stay comfortable. Dr.Gokhan Beyhan performed my surgery on the next day-he is excellent surgeon with many years experience and i am so delighted that i found Imed Istanbul online. After surgery i had check up and medication for the week post op. Every question that i’ve been asked has been answered by Zubeyde and Dr. Beyhan. Highly recommend the clinic to these who like to perform any kind of surgery. I am willing to go back again for different procedures. Prices are much better than any other places in Europe and UK and include the whole package which is all worth it. Big Thank you to Dr.Gokhan Beyhan and Zubeyde!
