Travelled from West Africa to Istanbul for my Breast Reduction

I travelled from West Africa to have the breast reduction Turkey done. I booked my surgery through FlyHealth which is a medical tourism company. I met Dr Mustafa same morning ot the surgery. We went over my expectations and the best possibilities for me. A few hours later, i was rolled into the theatre where my new boobs were cooked lol. God being so good,i had great after care treatment by the entire staff and was discharged a day after surgery.

Flyhealth secured a great 4.5 star hotel for me where i stayed till i returned back to my country. I was so nervous travelling all the way to have surgery but everything went great. Am thankful to God and also to medical team in Istanbul,Turkey.

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction surgery, breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty is the process of removing excess breast tissue from the body by surgically reducing the large breast tissue in women. After the procedure, while the breast size is reduced, excess fat and skin in the breast tissue are removed, and the nipple is moved to the higher region.

In healthy people, the breast tissue is a special organ consisting of various glands, milk ducts, dense fat, and connective tissue necessary for postpartum breastfeeding. Again, within the breast tissue, some ligaments and ligaments support other tissues by keeping the breast taut and upright. The nipple (areola) is the area where the glands and milk ducts in the breast are opened, with a darker color and a different structure of skin tissue. During breast reduction surgery, the functional structures of the breast such as glands, milk ducts, nipple area, and ligament structures are preserved.

Breast reduction surgery is a method used to obtain a more beautiful appearance in large and structurally bad breasts or to eliminate various health problems caused by large breasts. After the surgery, people get more positive impressions of their bodies, and it becomes easier to participate in physical activities. With this operation, psychological relief is provided.

The surgery can take about 2 to 4 hours under general anesthesia. Surgery is usually performed through incisions made around the nipple and from the nipple to the underside of the breast tissue. Inverted T-shaped incisions can be made from the nipple to the bottom of the breast in larger breast tissues.

Excess breast fat and skin tissues are removed from the body with the help of various equipment or liposuction devices over the surgical incision area. Then, the breast is rearranged by the surgeon, the incisions are closed in accordance with the cosmetic appearance and the surgery is terminated. The nipple area is protected during the surgery. However, in large-sized breasts, the nipple may need to be moved to higher areas as a skin graft.
