Breast Reduction in Turkey

Breast Reduction istanbul

Breast reduction is a plastic surgery type for reducing the size of breasts by removing breast fat, tissue, and skin for medical or aesthetic purposes.
You will find a rich selection of clinics offering breast reduction surgery in Turkey, particularly in the country’s cultural capital, Istanbul.

About The Procedure

Breast reduction can take from two to five hours and is performed under general anesthesia or intravenous sedation.
Incisions are made around the nipples, and excess skin, tissue, and fat are removed. In some cases, just liposuction is enough to perform the procedure. The exact method will depend on your preferences and type of issue.

Patient Profile

Breast reduction surgery is usually sought by patients seeking to reduce their breast size for medical purposes, i.e., to diminish physical discomfort and difficulties caused by excessively large breasts or aesthetic purposes.
You should be healthy and ideally a nonsmoker in order to have breast reduction surgery. It is best to have a breast reduction when the breasts are fully developed, but it is not obligatory.

Breast Reduction Costs

Costs of breast reduction surgery can vary widely according to the surgeon’s experience and the exact type of procedure. Costs of breast reduction in Turkey and many other plastic surgery procedures are much lower compared to Europe and the US.
In most cases, the costs of breast reduction surgery are covered by health insurance, as the procedure is considered reconstructive instead of cosmetic. Inquire with your insurer on what authorizations need to be obtained and how.
Always inquire with the clinic about the full price, which considers the price of surgery and additional costs such as anesthesia fees, operating room facilities and hospital costs, examinations, second procedure cost if necessary, etc.


During breast reduction consultations, the following is discussed: surgical goals; medical history, particularly previously done mammograms and biopsies and family history of breast cancer; substances used currently, including medications, supplements, alcohol, drugs, and tobacco; current health status; the expected outcome; postoperative care and potential complications.
The size and shape of breasts are measured and examined as well as the nipples and surrounding skin. Photographs are taken, and breast reduction options are discussed, after which the surgeon recommends an appropriate course of treatment.
It is advised to make full use of the consultation appointment in order to make as informed of a decision as possible. It is essential for the surgery’s success to honestly answer all of the surgeon’s inquiries and openly ask about anything requiring clarification.

Before The Surgery

The following may be requested from you before having your breast reduction:

  • Getting tests for medical evaluation; a mammogram is usually required before and after the surgery
  • Abstaining from nicotine
  • Abstaining from aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements
  • Taking specific medications or adjusting current medication

Postoperative Care Recovery

After breast reduction surgery, the breasts are covered with gauze and bandages as they heal. Thin tubes might be placed under the skin for draining any build-up of excess blood or fluids. You are instructed on what medication to use for healing and how to take care of the chest area during your recovery. A follow-up appointment is arranged.
One to two weeks are needed in most cases to return to normal activities.
The skin in the incision area should always be handled gently without exposure to any abrasive motion. Any form of physical strain should be avoided for at least a month after breast reduction surgery.
The breast reduction scars cannot disappear completely but do fade over time.
It is advised to make inquires with your surgeon concerning the period immediately after the surgery and during recovery. You may have questions about where you will be placed after the surgery, what medications you will be given, and when to arrange an appointment for follow-up care.


The results of breast reduction surgery are permanent but can be altered through significant weight fluctuations, aging, pregnancy, and gravity.
In some cases, multiple surgeries are needed for the best results.
Specific diagnostic procedures might be obstructed after breast reduction surgery.
An infection is more likely to occur after breast or nipple piercing for patients of breast reduction surgery.
