Details

Large breasts may cause a variety of health, social and even psychological problems such as neck, back and shoulder pain, nausea and rash caused by breasts, limitation of physical activities and inability to wear desired clothes. Apart from genetic factors, weight gain, births and breastfeeding increase the size and sagging of the breasts. Also, in some cases both breasts may not be the same size. In order to achieve symmetry in breast reduction surgery, it may be necessary to apply different surgical techniques to both breasts. The aim of breast reduction surgery is to obtain symmetrical breasts of equal size and shape that relieve the patient's complaints.Breast reducing (or reduction mammaplasty) is very similar to breast lift surgery as a surgical procedure. In breast reduction surgery, unlike breast lifting, some of the glands and fat tissue inside the breast and some extra skin are also removed. Thus, both the volume of the breast is reduced and the shape is corrected.


Who Is This For?

  • Healthy women who have large breasts and want to resolve issues such as chronic back, neck and shoulder pain arising from large breasts
  • Women who are not pregnant or breastfeeding

How Does it Work?

You begin by having an online consultation with one of our Healthcare Consultants who is a specialist in Breast Reduction. The consultant will most probably ask you the following questions:

  • Have you ever had a beard transplant before?
  • Do you have any medical conditions that we should be aware of?
  • Are you currently taking any medication?
  • What do you expect from the beard transplant surgery?

For your online consultation, we will kindly ask you to send your photos as shown in the Photography Guide down below, so we can evaluate your case.


Once you have decided to undergo a breast reduction surgery, we will plan and customize the whole procedure so as to suit your personal preferences, needs, and the clinics’ practices. Although it can differ from one patient to the other, there are quite a few stages involved in this procedure. To give you an idea, here is what you can expect:

1.    Surgery Preparation

When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a face-to-face consultation with your breast reduction surgeon. Part of the discussions will be about your expectations and goals. You will undergo both physical, blood tests and an X-ray of the breast (mammogram) so as to examine your overall health condition. After this, the surgeon will make an illustration of what to expect by drawing marks on your new beard line.  Once everything has been set, your surgeon will then give you anesthesia.

2.     Procedure

Once you are anesthetized, the surgery will begin. Your surgeon will start by making an incision around the areola to the breast crease and an inverted T-shaped incision. After the incisions, your surgeon will reposition the nipples, and remove unwanted fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin from your breasts. The surgeon will then reshape the remaining tissue according to your expectations. 

To some patients, incision lines can be permanent, but to others, they tend to disappear and improve significantly over a certain period of time –especially when the surgery is performed by an experienced surgeon.  

In addition to breast reduction, your surgeon can also recommend breast lift as a complementary procedure for a maximum aesthetic change.


What Should I Expect from a Breast Reducing Procedure?

  •  Immediately after the surgery, your breasts will be covered with gauze or bandage. A tube may be placed under each arm to discharge the excess blood or fluids.
  • In the first days or weeks after surgery, you will feel tenderness in your breasts and experience swelling and bruising that are normal and will disappear over time. Your surgeon will probably recommend an elastic compression bra to support the breasts and reduce swelling.
  • You should limit physical activity for two to four weeks and avoid wearing underwire bras for several months after surgery. Postoperative scarring usually disappears over time. You should also avoid driving until wearing a seatbelt is no longer painful.
  • Your surgeon and clinic will conduct follow-up visits both to get sutures and to check for recovery.
  • Make sure you walk, drink fluids regularly and add raw fruits to your diet
  • Do not smoke. This can be the most important cause of serious healing problems.
  • Start walking gently on the evening of surgery - this will reduce swelling, reduce the likelihood of blood clots or pneumonia and help prevent constipation.
  • Avoid strong activities for 4-6 weeks. Then gradually increase your activity intensity according to your tolerance. After 2 weeks you can do light lower body exercise, but you should wait 6 weeks before performing upper body exercises.
  • You can take a shower 48 hours after removing the drain tubes.
  • Avoid exposing the scars to the sun for at least 12 months and always use strong sunscreen (SPF 30 or higher) if exposure to the sun is unavoidable.
  • Keep the incisions clean and check for signs of infection daily.
  • Wear your surgical bra 24/7 for 6 weeks after surgery, or as often as your surgeon recommends.
  • Your surgeon may allow you to switch to sports bras after 2 weeks.
  • Carefully follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions and report important changes you feel during your recovery period.

 

Things You Should Do Before Surgery

  • A week before the procedure, you should stop taking Aspirins and any other meds associated with blood thinning.
  • If you are allergic to any drugs, you should inform your surgeon as soon as possible.
  • Patients advised to avoid smoking 24 hours before the surgery.
  • Consuming any alcoholic beverages can affect anesthesia. So you should not take in anything alcoholic 24 hours prior surgery.
  • If you are taking meds for chronic or acute diseases such as diabetes and heart disease, you should inform your surgeon before the surgery commences.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    Flymedi hat mich gut beraten und mir einen tollen Arzt mit Betreuungsservice vermittelt. Ich war zur Brustverkleinerung in Istanbul. Die OP, das Pesonal im Krankenhaus, die Beratung und die deutschsprachige Begleitung war top. Sämtliche Transfers vom Hotel zur Klinik, zur Nachuntersuchung und zum Flughafen waren super organisiert. Flymedi hat sich rundum toll gekümmert und immer nach dem aktuellsten Gesundheitszustand gefragt. Ich bin froh mich dagür entschieden zu haben und kann es nur weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank dafür

    I highly recommended flymedi.com. Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
