Breast surgery in Istanbul: mastopexy, mammoplasty and mammectomy
Breast surgery gets usually associated with breast augmentation, but actually it´s a set of surgical techniques whose objective is to give shape or reconstruct patient's breast for different purposes: not just breast augmentation, but also breast reduction, breast lifting, breast reconstruction, etc.
At Clinicana we offer to the patients of our clinic in Istanbul a wide range of options in breast aesthetics, using the most modern techniques performed by the best and most skilled doctors, with the ultimate aim of making our patients recover the ideal figure for their chest.
Aesthetic breast surgery at our clinic in Turkey
At our aesthetic breast surgery centre located in the modern Acıbadem Hospital in Taksim, in the very heart of Istanbul, we offer several types of cosmetic surgeries for breast, including the following:
This type of mammoplasty is highly demanded by many women -and sometimes also by men- who after going through a pregnancy or after breastfeeding notice that their chest has become saggy, or simply because they wish to increase their size due to aesthetic considerations.
By using this procedure, the size of the breast is increased using silicone or adipose tissue from the patient herself -which does not generate tissue rejection- to make breast reach the desired volume.
Mastopexy and reduction mammoplasty
Due to factors such as age, weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding, breast may look saggy, something that is especially frequent over the years in medium-sized or large breasts. By using the surgical technique known as mastopexy -breast lifting- the breast is modified so that it can recover its normal shape and position.
This usually makes patients regain confidence and self-esteem once they see their breasts rejuvenated, more symmetrical and beautiful. Mastopexy is often performed together with an increase in breast size using breast implants (augmentation mammoplasty), because the breast is often empty.
It can also be associated with a reduction mammoplasty if the breast is too large and the patient seeks to reduce its size. Breast reduction is usually necessary for health reasons; many women with a large breast size suffer from physical discomfort -mainly in the back- or feel that the excessive size of their breast interferes with their normal life. It is important to remember that after a reduction mammoplasty, a woman will not be able to breast-feed.
Nipple cosmetic surgery and reduction of one breast in case of asymmetry
The vast majority of women have breast asymmetry; that is, their breasts show differences in size, height or shape (including the shape of both the breast and the nipple). However, these differences are only striking to the point of being an aesthetic problem in 15% of cases.
To correct breast asymmetry permanently, it is necessary to resort to surgery, since due to its delicate nature it is not advisable to infiltrate products commonly used in other aesthetic treatments. To achieve it, at our clinic in Turkey we carry out a redesign of the nipple and the surrounding area to get the desired shape; we also perform a breast augmentation or reduction to achieve perfect symmetry.
Aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the breast for cancer patients
In case of breast cancer treatments, very often is necessary to resort to removing one or both breasts. Reconstructive breast surgery techniques have greatly improved in recent years, and modern methods are being used in Turkey today to reconstruct an entirely new breast using tissue from the body itself, from an implant, or by combining both.
Breast reconstruction can be performed immediately after removing the breast, in the same operation: this is the case, for example, if a preventive mastectomy is performed (to prevent the risk of breast cancer). But sometimes this is not possible, especially if other treatments such as chemotherapy or radiotherapy have to be carried out later; in this cases, the surgeon may recommend performing part or all of the reconstruction process once the treatment has ended.
Mammectomy for men
Mastectomy is performed in men when patient seeks to reduce his chest for aesthetic or health reasons. This surgical technique removes the excess of mammary glandular tissue or the adipose tissue, to achieve a smooth and symmetrical chest, recovering a much more attractive and masculine appearance. In some cases this surgery is accompanied by a reduction in the size of the areola and the nipple to improve the final result.
How much cost a breast surgery?
The cost of cosmetic breast surgery varies depending on the country and clinic where it is performed, and also on the type of intervention to be performed and the length of hospital stay required. For example, a mastopexy cost in UK usually ranges from £3,500 to £6,500, but additional costs must be added for aftercare.
However, such a surgery in Turkey can be carried out for much less money (please, ask for an estimate), including not only the operation but also implants and prior consultation. In addition, extra services such as transfers, accommodation, translator, etc. are usually included.
Not just much cheaper prices than in UK matters; the renowned plastic surgeons in Turkey and their experience -greater than their European counterparts- have turned clinics such as Clinicana and surgeons like Doctor Soner Tatlıdede into the destination of many patients looking for an aesthetic breast surgery.
