After the breast surgery in our clinic in Turkey your breasts will be in proportion with your body and feel firmer. The pain on the upper-body will go away, you can then breathe easier and be able to exercise. The clothes you wear will fit better, making you feel confident in yourself and your appearance.
How Is A Breast Reduction Procedure Performed?
Breast reduction surgery usually takes 3-5 hours and is performed in a hospital. After the surgery an overnight stay is usually required. The surgery involves 3 incisions. First the surgeon removes the agreed quantity of breast tissue, fat and skin. Then the nipple and areola are lifted to a higher position. The areolas can be reduced in size. Skin that was once located above the nipple is brought down and together reshaping the breast. If needed, liposuction is used under the arm to improve the contour.
A surgical marker will be used on your skin to mark where the incisions will be. As your breasts change shape when you are lying on your back on the operating table these marks are highly important. General anesthesia is preferred for this procedure.
The applied incision pattern depends on the size of your breasts, how saggy your breasts are and the position of your nipple-areola. Each technique helps make the areolas smaller if they are too big. An areolatome, also known as a “cookie cutter,” is used to make the new areola size. This cookie cutter`s diameter varies from 38-45 millimeters. Some of the mostly used incision patterns are:
- For fatty non-saggy breasts small incisions are used. These small incisions allow the liposuction tube to enter the breast to decrease the breast size.
- Around the borders of the areola a peri-areolar incision is used. Due to its distinctive shape this is also called a donut incision.
- A keyhole incision, also known as a lollipop incision, is made around the border of the areolas and vertically down from the areolas to the breast crease.
- The most used technique by plastic surgeons is the anchor incision. It involves 3 distinct cuts. The first incision is made around the border of the areolas. The second one, from the areolas goes down vertically to the breast crease. Here it merges with a third incision along the breast crease.
The surgeon removes excess breast skin and fat according to the breast size you desire. If your breasts are not symmetrical, the surgeon may need to remove more tissue from one breast than the other. After that he reshapes the remaining skin and fat by creating a more youthful breast shape. Lastly, the nipple-areola complex is moved to a higher position. To collect excess fluid during this procedure, drains can be placed in the breasts. Breast incisions are closed with sutures. They go all over the incisions, from the deep tissue layers to the more superficial skin layers.
The goal of the entire staff of our clinic in Turkey is to help you get the most beautiful and natural-looking results, while at the same time make your surgical experience the easiest and comfortable as possible.

- All the things you may need to grab or take should be put at a medium high; not too high to stretch your arms and not low to point them down.
Aftercare and Recovery
Because you have been given general anesthesia, after waking up you might feel disoriented. Over your upper chest you will have a surgical dressing. Most likely you will have drains coming out from each breast. Compression sleeves may be put on both your legs to help with the circulation. Despite possible feelings of discomfort, your medication will make you feel no pain.
Before you are released from the hospital, you are shown how to take care for your incisions. Detailed instructions will be given on how frequently to change the bandages and how to empty the drainage tubes. After the anesthesia effect goes away it is normal to feel some pain. Painkillers can be used in this case. Change in breast size is visible, but still you will have considerable swelling. It should go away after a few weeks.
Recovery time frame after breast reduction
It is vitally important that you follow all patient care instructions provided by your surgeon. This will include information about wearing compression garments, care of your drains, taking an antibiotic if prescribed and the level and type of activity that is safe. Your surgeon will also provide detailed instructions about the normal symptoms you will experience and any potential signs of complications. It is important to realize that the amount of time it takes for breast reduction recovery varies greatly among individuals.
Drain tubes are usually removed during your first follow-up appointment within the first week after surgery.
Within 10 days your incision lines should have healed up enough to remove the sutures.
Make sure you measure your temperature regularly. An increase in body temperature may mean that the surgery area is infected. This increases the recovery time and may affect the desired result.
You may feel soreness and pain making you less prone to move. Taking the advised medications and following the surgeon instructions will make them go away in a few days.
Swelling is an aftermath of all surgeries. You can feel swelling for up to 3-4 months. Usually it is very slight and can be noticed by you alone. As the breasts become smaller than before, you may not notice the swelling too much. Taking fluids -water is preferred- and walking helps reduce it.
In rare cases you may have bruises, depending on the patient, the used technique, and the drugs administered during the surgery. Numbness or sensitivity changes on the nipples, itching around incision sites may appear. These side effects should go away over the coming few weeks lasting up to three months.
When sleeping your body position is important. You should make sure to relieve pressure from the treatment area. In no way you should sleep with your chest down. Using extra pillows under your legs may help you from rotating during sleep.
Bathing with running water is not advised. Have a sponge bath instead until the incisions are closed and the sutures removed. Have someone else help wash your hair as you shouldn’t raise your hands over your head.
Once you have regained consciousness and are able to stand and walk, your surgeon will advise you to have walks from time to time. Such light activities prevent blood clots and swelling. Strenuous and lifting activities should be avoided. You should take it easy in healing in order to give yourself best healing results in a standard short time. In a few weeks you will be able to gain full motion abilities.
It is important to attend the follow-up sessions and be in touch with your plastic surgeon. Our clinic staff in Turkey offers in-clinic follow-up if you are in Turkey or online consultations 24/7. Do not hesitate to contact us at any time for anything.
