All about Breast Reduction Surgery

Large breast size can be regarded as a genuine aesthetic and physical challenge for women. It can manifest during puberty, following pregnancy, or due to substantial weight gain. Regardless of its origin, whether congenital or hormonal, having overly large breasts can lead to various difficulties, including:

  • Muscle, back, and shoulder pain.
  • Mobility issues.
  • General discomfort, both physically and psychologically.

This issue can be addressed through a surgical intervention known as breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, commonly performed in IstanbulTurkey. Let's delve into the details of this procedure, including its cost and reviews.

Breast reduction surgery not only enhances one's physical appearance but also boosts the self-esteem of both women and men.

In fact, male breast reduction surgery in Turkey is highly sought after for its impressive success rate.

Gynecomastia: The male mammary gland reduction surgery

The procedure for gynecomastia, or male breast reduction in Turkey, typically involves a combination of liposuction and the removal of both fatty and glandular breast tissues. Incisions are strategically placed near the areola (the pigmented area around the nipple),ensuring that any resulting scars are well-disguised following the surgery. In cases where the breast is excessively enlarged, excess skin may also be excised.

As for whether insurance covers male breast reduction surgery in Turkey, it's important to note that the cost can vary based on factors such as the surgeon's level of experience and the specific techniques employed. Additionally, the location of the clinic or hospital (i.e. Istanbul) can also play a significant role.

What causes enlarged breasts among men?

70% of men experience the onset of large breasts during puberty. It results from changes in estrogen and testosterone levels. Newly born babies sometimes have temporary gynecomastia. This is due to the remaining of their mothers' female hormones in their blood for a short time after birth.

Adults and older men can also have the same problem. It could be due to age advancement, excess fat, or certain medications & drugs, such as:

  • Antibacterials medicines
  • Heart disease treatment
  • Antianxiety or Tricyclic antidepressant medicines
  • HIV treatment
  • Cancer treatment (Chemotherapy)
  • Alcohol, marijuana, and other addictive substances amphetamines or heroin.

Tea tree oil or lavender oil can also increase boobs volume. That's because they contain estrogen that can disturb the body's natural hormone levels.

Sometimes it occurs due to another health condition, such as:

  • Hyperthyroid;
  • Kidney disease;
  • Growth of a tumor on the glands responsible for hormone regularization.

What causes hypertrophy among women?

Breast hypertrophy (also called macromastia) is a rare, benign condition that causes excessive growth of the woman's boobs. The exact origin of gigantomastia is unknown, it can happen randomly. However, it is more likely to occur during pregnancy, breastfeeding, or due to some medications.

This condition may result from one of these four circumstances:

1. Pregnancy and breastfeeding.

2. Puberty.

3. Certain drugs, including bucillamine, d-penicillamine, cyclosporine, and neothetazone.

4. Certain autoimmune diseases, including:

  • SLE (systemic lupus erythematosus);
  • Chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis;
  • Chronic inflammatory disease;
  • Myasthenia Gravis (disease of the neuromuscular junction);
  • Psoriasis (skin disorder).

Types of macromastia

  • Gestational or pregnancy-induced gigantomastia: breast hypertrophy due to pregnancy;
  • Juvenile or puberty-induced gigantomastia: mammary hypertrophy that occurs between the ages of 11 and 19;
  • Medication or drug-induced gigantomastia: macromastia due to some medications.
  • Idiopathic gigantomastia: spontaneous hypertrophy, with no evident reason, and it is the most frequent kind of macromastia.

Reducing Breast Size in Istanbul, Turkey

Breast size reduction is a surgical procedure typically lasting around two hours, contingent on the extent of skin and gland removal. It is conducted under general anesthesia, requiring a minimum preoperative stay of six hours. A night of hospitalization is crucial to check our overall health.

Prior to surgery, it is recommended that the patient attend two consultations with board-certified breast reduction specialists. These consultations provide an opportunity for the patient to discuss her expectations in detail and to undergo a thorough medical examination. During these sessions, the plastic surgeon will also explain the steps of the procedure and the type of anesthesia that will be administered.

At the beginning of the procedure, the plastic surgeon removes the excess glandular tissue. Then he repositions the mammary gland and puts the envelope. Finally, he/she puts drains and puts a shaped bandage in the form of a bra.

After the surgery, the patient is required to take two to three weeks of mandatory vacation and avoid all sports activities for at least one month.
