Breast reduction surgery in Istanbul, also known as a reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to reduce the size and weight of the breasts, and can include improving the appearance of the nipple and areola area. Our Este Turkey breast surgery team is comprised of board-certified plastic surgeons. Breast reduction and breast lift surgeries go hand in hand, so they can be performed at the same time. The reduction surgery removes excess fat, skin and breast tissue from the breast and then lifts them. We encourage you to message us to arrange an Este Medical Group consultation with our surgery experts.
Our Este Turkey surgeons all have a minimum of ten years' experience. Here is a general overview of what to expect. A reduction surgery involves general anaesthetic. During the procedure the surgeon makes a small incision around the areola (the darker area around your nipples) and vertically down the breast to remove excess tissue. The nipples may be repositioned, and your breasts reshaped. In the breast reduction part of the procedure, the surgeon will make an incision that extends from the nipple down to the chest wall and then under the breast. Once the incision is made, the surgeon will remove excess skin and tissue. Remaining tissue is moved to a new position for a more proportional look. The surgeon then closes the skin around the new reshaped breast. Breasts are both reduced in size and lifted during the same procedure. The surgery usually takes between 1-2 hours.
The surgery will take place at our Istanbul, Turkey Este Medical Group facility with skilled, experienced surgeons and an aftercare team.
This is a low-risk procedure. However, with surgery there is the potential for a reaction to the anaesthesia, bleeding or hematoma formation, infection, poor healing of incisions, or changes in nipple or breast sensation (which may be temporary or permanent). Every known possible risk will be fully discussed during your Este Turkey consultation.
On average the recovery time is about 1-2 weeks. You can usually go home on the same day. Este Medical Group will provide you with a clearly detailed aftercare guide.
Optimal candidates for breast reduction and lift surgery are in good health and have reasonable expectations of the potential results of the procedure. During your Este consultation your body fat percentage (i.e., the total mass of fat divided by total body mass) will be assessed to give you an idea of the result you can expect. The best way to answer this question is to book an Este consultation.
On average the surgery takes between 1-2 hours.
