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 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:
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.
Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty surgery is recommended for patients with very large breasts or only patients who are bothered by feeling that their breasts are too large and wish to reduce the size of them.
Reduction mammoplasty surgery or breast reduction surgery is not recommended for patients with serious health conditions such as heart problems, lung disease, or diabetes. Surgeons can decide if the patient is eligible for the surgery through the appropriate tests and examinations.
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.
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.
Patient is required to stay 1 night in the hospital
2 - 3 weeks
Between 2 to 3 hours
1 to 2 weeks
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 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.

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.
