Are your overly large breasts causing you trouble? Even though bigger boobs are considered an attractive feature, they can cause difficulties that overshadow their appearance. Most women with bigger breasts realise over time that they may be causing physical and psychological issues. At Vantage Clinic Istanbul, we provide a top-class breast reduction operation with our internationally reputable surgeons.
Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anaesthesia for maximum comfort during the surgery. Your surgeon will start by creating incisions without disrupting the blood and nerve supply. Then the excess fat, glandular tissue and skin will be removed from your breasts. At this point, your surgeon will create the new shape of your breasts and move the nipple upwards. After reshaping the incisions are closed. Sutures can leave a subtle scar behind, but should not be anything that can be hidden with bras or swimsuits. This operation usually takes 2-3 hours and you might be asked to spend 1-2 days in the hospital.
To prepare for breast reduction surgery you will need to get medical examinations and mammograms done beforehand.
As with any other surgery, you will need to stop smoking a few weeks before your operation and avoid taking any blood-thinning medication.
Your surgeon can also advise you to stop taking certain medications you are using or prescribe different medications depending on your condition.
Apart from the credibility of your surgeon, the cost is one of the most important factors to consider before breast reduction surgery.
In Turkey, many experienced and qualified surgeons offer great breast reduction results at affordable prices. If you are intimidated by the high cost of breast reduction you can look into your options in Turkey. The breast reduction cost in Turkey is usually around $2,500.
The recovery period after breast reduction surgery can take 2-6 weeks depending on your condition. Your surgeon will place a covering over your breasts and tubes for blood drainage after the operation. These should be removed in 1 or 2 days before you are discharged.
You might need to take some painkillers for a few days after your surgery to ease the pain. It is advised to take a couple off work during the recovery period and get help with your daily activities.
After your surgery, your breasts will be swollen which can take up to 3 months to fully go down. Until the swelling is gone you might not be able to see the actual results of your surgery. During the recovery period, your surgeon can advise you to wear a sports bra regularly to support your breasts.
If you are only bothered by the shape of your breasts, such as sagging and asymmetrical look, a breast lift might be the better option for you. However, if you are experiencing problems because of the size of your breasts, breast reduction is the way to go.
Traditional breast reduction tends to leave a T-shaped scar behind. However, this scarring fades away in a couple of years and becomes nearly invisible. For breast reduction without scars, you might want to look into liposuction.
Some factors might cause your breasts to grow back after reduction surgery. However, this is a rare occasion. Pregnancy or breastfeeding, significant hormonal changes, and weight gain are the most common reasons for breast regrowth.
With today’s innovative techniques, it is possible to breastfeed after a breast reduction operation. To preserve the ability to breastfeed, your nipple and areola should still be attached to the breast tissue. You can consult with your surgeon for more in-depth information on breastfeeding after your surgery.
