Patients who are in discomfort because of their large breasts can benefit from Breast Reduction operations to improve their lives.
Before Breast Reduction in Turkey
The surgeon will review the medical history of the patient and learn about any conditions and previous treatments. Use of any medication needs to be reported to the surgeon during the examination. Certain medications the patient is using might be changed with other alternatives prior to surgery.
The surgeon and the patient will discuss about the desired outcome in order to achieve a satisfying result. The procedure, possible outcomes and options will be explained to the patient. In addition, the surgeon might also ask for a baseline mammogram.
During reast Reduction in Turkey
In Breast Reduction surgeries, surgeons generally remove the breast tissues, fat and skin through a small incision, however in some cases liposuction can be used to suck out the excess fat in the breasts. Once the excess tissues are removed, the surgeon reshapes the breasts. Most of the time the nipple remains untouched, however if there is lots of extra skin after the operation, the surgeon might need to remove and reattach the nipple to the ideal position. The incisions will be closed and bandages will be placed.
After Breast Reduction in Turkey
The patients are likely to take pain medication and antibiotics for some time after the surgery. The breasts can be sensitive for the first week. They might get swollen, and elastic compression bras might be used to support the shape of the breasts. Avoiding heavy physical activity for 2-4 weeks is recommended. Scars will get better in time, but they will not disappear completely. To hide any scars, surgeons place incisions on areas that are least likely to be seen.
