What is mammoplasty?

Mammoplasty in Turkey, also known as breast reduction, is a type of plastic surgery in Turkey aimed at reducing the size, volume and weight of the breasts. Breast size varies from one woman to another. It is determined by a woman’s hormones, genes and weight.

A breast size that is disproportionate to the body can lead to physical and psychological problems. Large, sagging breasts can lead to physical problems such as chronic back pain, neck pain, poor posture, skin irritation and excessive sweating, as well as emotional problems such as low self-esteem and dissatisfaction with the appearance of the breasts.

Mammoplasty offers a solution to women who are unhappy and uncomfortable with the disproportionate size of their breasts by lifting them and making them smaller. Women undergo mammoplasty to feel more comfortable physically, to improve the appearance of their breasts and to boost their self-esteem and femininity.

Every year, almost 700,000 women around the world undergo surgery to reduce the disproportionate size of their breasts and enhance their appearance. Breast reduction is one of the most popular types of cosmetic surgery in the world.

Mammoplasty for men: Gynecomastia in Turkey

Mammoplasty is also preferred by men with enlarged breasts, known as gynaecomastia. Obesity, genes, hormonal imbalance, excessive alcohol consumption, cancer or liver failure and excessive weight loss without sport may be among the reasons for gynaecomastia. Mammoplasty in Turkey in Istanbul is used to flatten the breasts of a man who feels discomfort due to enlarged breasts.

For men, mammoplasty can be performed using the same method or with liposuction. The patient’s individual case will determine the treatment plan.

How does mammoplasty work?

Basically, breast reduction surgery is usually performed by making incisions in the breasts, followed by removal of excess fat, breast tissue and skin to resize and reshape the breasts using stitches so that they are proportionate to the body.

Mammoplasty can be explained in 3 stages:

1. Incision

There are several different incision methods used for mammoplasty. There are three most common incision techniques used for breast reduction surgery:

  • Anchor type (inverted T reduction): This technique involves an anchor-shaped incision that begins around the areola, descends vertically and then crosses horizontally across the breast crease.
  • Circular pattern around the areola : This technique involves an incision around the areola in a circular pattern.
  • Keyhole (snowshoe) pattern: This technique involves an incision around the areola and vertically down to the fold of the breast.

Your surgeon will choose the most appropriate incision method for mammoplasty, taking into account the size and shape of your breasts and the desired breast size.

2. Nipple repositioning and tissue removal

After the incisions, mammoplasty continues with the repositioning of the nipples (which remain attached to their original blood and nerve supply). The nipples and areola may be removed and repositioned on a higher part of the breasts (in the form of a skin graft) if the breasts are extremely large. Excess fat, breast tissue and skin are then removed.

3. Closing the incisions

Incisions are made close together to reshape and reduce the size of the breasts. To create and support the reshaped breasts, the surgeon places stitches deep in the breast tissue. Skin adhesives or surgical tape are used to suture/close the incisions. The incision lines are permanent, but they generally disappear or fade significantly in due course.
