I travelled all the way from US by myself to come here and get rhinoplasty done, my surgery was a week ago by Dr Hasan duygulu he is extremely professional and excellent at his job. My whole stay was made very easy and comforting by Kate, Sultan and Enes. I have been coordinating with Kate this whole time from the start till the end. She has been amazing throughout and ensuring. They all were there for me when i needed them and even after. It was a great decision for me and i m totally proud of myself that i was able to find the best and proceeded with it. I thank everyone part of luna clinic and the hospital for your kind and loving hospitality. I will recommend coming to Dr Hasan to everyone and anyone without any hesitation

I would highly recommend Flymedi and Abud

I would highly recommend Flymedi. My mom had a gastric balloon fitted at the Luna clinic and everything went smoothly. When I was looking for a clinic in Turkey I found Flymedi as medical tourism, I contacted them by email and they got back to me in a short time. I was assigned Abud as health coordinator and I don’t have enough words to thank him. He’s professional but on top of that he loves what he’s doing and he does really care. As I said before I don’t have enough words to thank Abud and Flymedi and I’m so happy I made the right decision by choosing them. If you want to have the bed experience choose Flymedi and you won’t regret it.

Rhinoplasty 12 days ago- Luna Clinic- Dr. Hasan Duygulu

I had my rhinoplasty done exactly 12 days ago with doctor Hasan Duygulu. Before flying to Istanbul, I was very scared of doing this somewhere far from home but , from the first day of our arrival I knew I chose the right clinic; we met Sultan at the gate of the hospital, she was extremely nice and accommodating and organised, she comforted and still comforting me with answering every question and concerns possible and was with me through the whole before, during and after process which I am still experiencing btw. At the day of the surgery we met doctor Hasan, he is very nice and professional, I told him what I wanted and he took pictures of my face and showed me what my nose could approximately look like after the surgery and addressed my concerns and questions which were a lot btw :) he came to visit me right after I woke up and the next morning as well. The hospital was very luxurious and the nurses were very nice and all our needs were met perfectly, everything was super organised and easy. Today I removed my cast and I am very happy with the results as early as it is with the swelling I am very satisfied and I cant wait to see the final results which seem to be very close to the pictures he showed me. Thank you Luna clinic and especially Sultan for making this life changing decisions the best decision I made. The whole experience was easy, trusted and comfortable thanks to you

I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi.

If you are thinking about surgery in Turkey, I would definitely recommend booking through Flymedi. Abud was my contact and is there for you 24/7. He was quick to respond and did his very best to answer every question and keep me calm in what can be, a new and scary experience. I would highly recommend and you can be sure you are lucky if he is your contact. The hospital was very clean and staff were very professional and kind. The doctor did an amazing job and I am thrilled!!

Totally recommend

The whole process went really smooth from the beginning, it was really easy to communicate with them. I had my mommy makeover done in June, 2021 and the only thing I regretted is putting off my surgery for some years because I did not want to travel abroad, but in the end it was all worth it. The prices are much lower and I was happy with my surgeon (Prof. Omer), he is such a friendly person and an amazing surgeon as well. I love my results and I've never felt so confident in my body, even before the pregnancy. I can recommend Flymedi and my surgeon in particular.

Overview

Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty or reduction mammoplasty surgery is a safe, effective and beneficial plastic surgery that is used to reduce the size of very large breasts by enhancing their shape and symmetry while maintaining full functionality in the region – this means the lactational capacity of the breasts is preserved.

Breast reduction surgery can be performed for three different purposes: 

  • Physical – Extremely large breasts may lead to difficulties in ordinary activities such as sports
  • Aesthetic – Some patients complain of discomfort due to the size of their breasts
  • Psychological – Some patients feel that this particular appearance of the body does not represent them
  • Gynecomastia – breast reduction surgery for male patients
  • Mastopexy – Breast lift surgery – it can be successfully combined with breast reduction surgery 
     

Procedures similar to breast reduction surgery include: 

Every year, surgeons perform over 60,000 reduction mammoplasty surgeries in the USA alone. 

Women usually turn to this treatment in order to relieve neck pain, back pain, and even shoulder pain arising from the big breasts.

Preparation

Patients should stop smoking at least a month before going in for breast reduction surgery. The usage of aspirin, vitamins, and herbal supplements are prohibited at least two weeks before reduction mammoplasty surgery. Patients should also prepare aftercare requirements before the surgery, such as plenty of ice and gauze and clean washcloths and towels.

How It Is Performed

Firstly, the patient will be put to sleep, under intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Then the surgeon will begin marking the incision spots. Usually, the surgeon will create an incision around the nipple, and then down to the crease where the breast meets the chest wall. A circular, keyhole or an inverted “T” shape pattern incision around the areola could be used. Once the incision is created, the surgeon will proceed to remove the patient's extra fat, skin, and mammary tissue from the breast, and the underlying breast tissue is lifted and shaped. After that, the surgeon repositions the nipple to a more appropriate level. Breast reduction scars are usually permanent, or if visible they can be usually well concealed beneath a swimsuit or bra. Drains are then placed, and the incision is stitched up before being wrapped in bandages. The surgery is completed at this point, and the breast reduction recovery period can begin. 

Recovery

The breast reduction recovery period lasts around 2 weeks but it may take more time for the breast reduction scars to become less visible. Patients will be required to wear a special medical support bra during the breast reduction recovery period. Sleeping on the stomach is not allowed during this period. Patients can usually return to work in around 1-2 weeks but sports should be avoided for at least 2-3 weeks. Clinics usually provide patients with a full set of instructions in order to make the breast reduction recovery period easier to handle.The breast reduction recovery period generally lasts around 2 weeks, but it may take more time for the breast reduction scars to become less visible. Patients will be required to wear special medical support bra during the recovery period. Patients need to stop physical activity for at least one month after surgery, and sleeping on the stomach is not allowed during this period. Patients can usually return to work in around 1-2 weeks. Surgeons set follow-up appointments for removing bandages and stitches and provides patients with a full set of instructions in order to make the breast reduction recovery period easier to handle.

Risks

Breast reduction complications can include one or more of the following: 

  • Excessive bleeding
  • Scarring
  • Permanent loss of sensitivity in the nipple region
  • Infection
  • Negative reaction to anesthesia
  • Hematoma
  • Fat necrosis
  • Excessive firmness of the breast
  • Breast contour and shape irregularities
  • Skin discoloration
  • Breast reduction in revision surgery
Side Effects

Reduction mammoplasty side effects can include changes in nipple or breast sensation, swelling, pain which can be relieved with prescribed painkillers, numbness in the chest area, feelings of discomfort and temporary bleeding. 

These post-operatory effects will gradually subside after the first week of the breast reduction recovery period.

Success Rates

The average breast reduction surgery success rate is around 98% according to studies conducted. Patients have a lower chance of developing complications after reduction mammoplasty surgery.

Before And After

Reduction mammoplasty surgery patients enjoy a more active lifestyle after the procedure. This procedure is a relief for women suffering from chronic shoulder, neck and back pain arising from the size of the breasts. The effects of reduction mammoplasty are practically indefinite – the procedure is life changing for most patients.

Faq

Can I Breastfeed After Reduction Mammoplasty Surgery?
There is no definitive answer to this question. If the ducts and glands that produce milk are damaged, there may be problems with breastfeeding in the future. During a breast reduction surgery, some of the nerves responsible for sensation and reflex, which stimulates your brain to produce milk when a baby sucks on your nipple, can also be interrupted. These are the risks, but with a skilled and experienced surgeon, the risks of affecting breastfeeding can be minimized.

 

Can Reduction Mammoplasty Surgery Be Combined with Other Procedures?
Yes, patients can combine reduction mammoplasty surgery with a tummy tuck procedure for a better result. Besides, women may get the best results by receiving a combination of breast reduction and breast lift procedures. 


Can Liposuction Be Used Alone For Reduction Mammoplasty Surgery?
Yes, in some cases, surgeons decide that liposuction is enough to bring the desired results, but most circumstances require excision of skin tissue as well.
