Breast Reduction in Turkey

When the breast size is larger than normal limits, it carries the risk of causing various health problems, especially musculoskeletal system problems. Thus, people may need appropriate rearrangement of breast tissue to ensure mental, physical and social health. Breast reduction surgery is the removal of the skin-mammary gland tissue that causes weight and sagging from the breast and shaping the remaining breast into a more upright and aesthetically improved state.

Breast reduction surgeries consist of three basic procedures: 

1) Moving the nipple upward
2) Reducing the size of the breast to a conical shape
3) Cutting off excess skin

It is done to make the breasts smaller, lighter and shaped. Both men and women can benefit from this breast reduction operation. You may ask “how long does breast reduction surgery take?” Depending on the size of the breasts and the surgical techniques applied, breast reduction surgery takes around 3-4 hours.

The breast reduction procedure is performed under general anaesthesia. During the surgery, the fat, connective tissue, glandular tissues and part of the skin tissue of the breast are removed from the body. Skin incisions are made just below the breast tissue, in a way that is not easily visible and allows for cosmetic healing, in order to avoid leaving noticeable scars in the future. Scars vary depending on the way the nipple is moved and the method of tissue removal. The most common scar is a circular scar around the nipple and a vertical scar starting from there and going down to the new fold under the breast. If the amount of breast tissue is large, there may be a scar along the sub-breast fold. Its shape is like an upside-down letter T.

Breast reduction surgery is the most effective surgery to reduce a woman's disproportionate breast size. After the operation, the breasts become firmer, more contoured, and smaller. The areola, the dark area around the nipples, can also be reduced with breast reductions. If you choose breast reduction surgery in Turkey with the help of Sanamentum, you will no longer have the pain and discomfort caused by large breasts and get a better-proportioned body as you have desired.

In Which Situations is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

Breast reduction procedures can be performed on females who have completed their breast development and who do not have a risky breast mass. Breast reduction surgery can also be performed on men with feminine breast tissue development. There is no specific age criterion for breast reduction surgery. However, it is not right to decide on surgery during adolescence, when breast development continues, as the breast tissue has not yet reached full maturity.

This surgery is mostly preferred by people whose quality of life is negatively affected both psychologically and socially, due to their breast size. Since overly large breasts have also sagging problems, breast reduction and lift can be performed together in these cases. Large breasts can cause problems as listed below: 

1)    Presence of chronic type of waist, back, shoulder or neck pain,
2)    Development of widespread inflammation, redness or rash in the skin under the breast tissue,
3)    Damage or loss of function in the nerves in the chest area due to large breast size,
4)    Limitation in physical activity.
5)    Shoulder irritations caused by bra straps.
6)    Difficulties encountered in daily life (difficulty finding clothes, sweating more than normal, etc.)


Breast reduction surgery is performed to eliminate these problems and to increase the general quality of a patient’s life.

Breast Reduction Surgery Recovery and Results

The recovery time for breast reduction surgery lasts around two weeks, and breast reduction scars gradually disappear. Throughout the recovery after the breast reduction procedure, patients must wear the prescribed medical support bra. Typically, minor pain following breast reductions is expected. Heavy exercise should be avoided in the early period after breast reduction surgery, but there is no need for strict bed rest. As a sleeping position, the patient should lie on her back for 4 weeks and avoid lying face down, especially in the early period. After checking the wound areas, if there is no obstacle, the patient is allowed to take a shower. The special bra applied after breast reduction surgery should be used for 6-8 weeks.

In the first three weeks after the surgery, the breasts look higher and upright than normal, and their appearance may not be natural. After the third week, the breasts decrease to their normal position and their appearance becomes natural during the breast reduction surgery recovery time. They take their final shape in the third month.
