Turkey is a fairly large country with 75 million inhabitants. The country spreads between Europe and Asia, with 97% of the country on the Asian side – Asian Turkey. Turkey is encircled and enjoys access to three different seas: The Black Sea, The Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. Istanbul is the largest city in Turkey and the largest city in Europe, regarding population – It has over 14 million people.
Turkey’s medical infrastructure has improved greatly beginning with the early 2000s and now is one of the biggest medical tourism hubs in Europe and Asia. Turkey has the largest number of JCI-accredited hospitals, second only to the USA and hospitals are more often than not part of international healthcare groups, following strict European protocols and regulations. Turkey has 28.000 medical institutions spread across the European and Asian side but some of the biggest private hospitals and medical centres are in Istanbul, Ankara, Antalya and Bodrum – these also happen to be some of the best tourist destinations in Turkey.
Bodrum is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Turkey, with its sandy beaches and small streets littered with traditional shops and elegant restaurants. The town used to be called Halicarnassus, and the Mausoleum at Halicarnassus is one of the World’s Seven Ancient Wonders. Bodrum also features a castle built by the crusaders in the 15th century.
Istanbul is the home of several architectural treasures, including the Blue Mosque. The Blue Mosque was built on the orders of Sultan Ahmed between 1609 and 1616 and the Sultan’s body still resides within the mosque. The high ceiling is lined with more than 20000 handmade ceramic tiles, hence the name – The Blue Mosque.
Pamukkale, meaning “The Cotton Castle” in Turkish is a surreal destination in the country’s western region of Denizli, world renowned for its white terraces with warm spring water. The ancient Greek city of Hierapolis was built over the springs and Pamukkale was a renowned destination in antiquity as well. Tourists can visit the ancient Roman and Greek ruins of the baths, temples and theatres dating to the second century BC.

Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a type of mammoplasty in which a patient’s sagging breasts are raised and firmed to a more aesthetically pleasing level. Breast lift surgery can modify the position, contour, and size of a patient's breasts. Mastopexy surgery can also remove excess skin tissue, excess fatty tissue, and overstretched ligaments from the patient's bust area and the internal breast tissue is also reshaped through this procedure.
There are two main types of breast lifts. The types of breast lifts depend on whether the patient wishes to reduce or enlarge her bust:
Mastopexy is recommended for any patient is bothered by the feeling that their breast has lost shape and volume.
Breast sagging or ptosis is part of the natural aging process, but several factors influence the degree to which breasts sag.
There are several types of ptosis, depending on the severity according to Regnault's classification published by Paula Regnault in 1976:
Breast lift procedure or mastopexy surgery is not recommended for patients with underlying health conditions such as heart problems and lung disease. Patients should be physically healthy and maintain a stable weight. Patients suffering from obesity and diabetes are not good candidates for breast lift surgery.
Heavy smokers should be aware that smoking can have an ill effect on the body’s capacity to heal and regenerate. If the patient is a smoker, she should quit smoking at least a month before going in for surgery. Patients may be advised to stop taking certain medicines such as non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, aspirin, and medicines that contain aspirin. Patients may also be asked to stop taking naturopathic substances such as garlic, gingko, and ginseng as they may affect clotting and anesthesia during the breast lift surgery.
The breast lift surgery technique depends on a few factors:
Once the surgeon decides on the technique that will be used and the incision spots, the patient is administered anesthesia or sedation. After the proper incision is created, the doctor can begin the breast lift procedure, which includes the removal of extra skin and lifting the breast tissue into the proper location. The breast tissue is reshaped with the nipple being repositioned higher on the chest wall. Larger areolas can also be reduced at this point. The area is then wrapped in bandages, and the breast lift recovery period can officially begin.
Patient is required to stay 1 night in the hospital
Between 2 to 3 hours
1 to 2 weeks
The average breast lift recovery period lasts a few weeks during which the patient needs to take certain precautions in order to ensure the success of the procedure. A special medical bra will be provided to the patient by the clinic. The medical bra will need to be worn during the full breast lift recovery period. Sleeping on the stomach is not allowed during the recovery period, because it can create a negative effect on the surgery’s outcome. A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain excess blood or fluid. Patients usually return to work and normal activities such as sports in 1-2 weeks. Most of the post-operatory side effects occur during the first week after breast lift surgery.
Breast lift surgery complications can include:
The patient can feel pain, discomfort, swelling and a loss of nipple sensitivity after the surgery. Scars will generally be red at first, then purple, and then fade to become paler over 12 to 18 months. Side effects after breast lift surgery are at the strongest level in the first 4 days but will gradually subside.
Nipple sensitivity usually returns to normal in around 6 weeks to 6 months.
The average success rate based on mastopexy surgery patient reviews is 94,2%.
The results of mastopexy (breast lift) surgery can be seen immediately but the final results of the breast lift surgery will slowly become apparent during the course of a few months. It can take several months for the swelling to settle. The results of mastopexy surgery are long-lasting, but the patient's breasts will continue to change over time. The patient should adopt a healthy and active lifestyle in order to maintain a renewed and rejuvenated appearance after surgery.
Does Mastopexy Surgery Leave Scars?
Mastopexy surgery usually leaves a circular scar in the areola. Depending on how much lifting is required, the scars may be placed in the border of the areola and breast skin, extended down from the areola to the base of the breast or hidden in the fold of the chest.
Should I Have Mastopexy Surgery If I Plan on Having Children?
Mastopexy surgery does not impair breastfeeding. In rare cases, nerves or ducts can get damaged during the surgery and it may lead to reduced milk production. Pregnancy can affect the timing of a breast lift, as the whole pregnancy process has variable effects on the appearance or the function of the breasts. If you are planning to have a baby, it would be better to delay the breast lift surgery.
Will Mastopexy Surgery Change My Bust Size?
A breast lift procedure alone will not significantly change the size of the breasts. However, patients can opt for a breast lift with augmentation or breast lift with a reduction to achieve the desired result.
