I needed to have a spinal mri in Italy, and couldn’t find any clinic that could do it. It was either a 4 month wait, clinic never called me back, or they hung up because my Italian wasn’t very good. I contacted Bookimed and within hours they responded and put me in touch with a lovely woman in Milan who got me an appointment at a private clinic in Milan in 2 days. She accompanied me throughout the appointment and translated when necessary. Something I dreaded ended up being a smooth and easy process. Thank you.

После предварительного собеседования. Предоставиди выбор из несскольких клиник. Связали с представителем выбранной клиники. Дали контакты. Все дальнейшее общении и информацию получал напрямую от представителя клиники. Никаки предоплат не требовалось. Все договоренности были выполнены по заранее договоренным датам, без каких либо накладок. Договор на мед обслуживани заключался в клинике непосредственно перед госпитализацией. Спасибо сайту за грамотную оценку необходимых услуг и быстрый выход на необходимую клинику.

I had to book 3 appointments in a hospital at Istanbul for my brother and his wife, both with serious health problems. I have contacted Bookimed who had reacted immediately and put me in touch with Dr Emad Hussein. After listening to the description of the sicknesses of my relatives, Dr Hussein explained very clearly what are the medical documents to have for the day of appointment as well as all administrative steps to follow. Then he put in touch with Mrs Farah from Liv Hospital for the appointments and she has been very efficient and helpful. I do not know how to thank Dr Hussein and bookimed for the excellent service provided. Nadia

Очень и очень довольна взаимодействием с Букимед. Прошла лечение от рака молочной железы. В ноябре 2018 года летала на обследование в Стамбул, клиники Медиполь и Анадолу. Помогли с билетами, организацией поездки, всегда оставались на связи. Координатор от Букимеда имеет медицинское образование, может качественно проконсультировать по поводу клиник, врачей. Лично для меня это большой плюс. До этого я лечилась в Израиле, организовывала все своими силами и потратила несравнимо больше времени, сил и нервов. Буду работать с Букимед в будущем и рекомендовать знакомым.

Very helpful and nice people. They’re quick on response, and they give the best recommendations.

My experience with bookimad was great; the thing that I appreciate is the high sense of humanity of the staff, especially Dr Farruk Ahmed. He answer all my questions in time, he read my poor English and make me feel comfortable, such thing is so important for someone that suffer. I know they do their best to help. Thank you Dr.

The patient underwent breast reduction in Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

All staff were professional throughout the duration of my surgery and overnight stay. I felt confident and reassured by the surgeon undertaking my breast reduction pre consultation. I experienced no pain following the surgery, only some discomfort. All appropriate aftercare/treatment/medication was provided by the medical team on duty. My co-ordinator was exceptional and was available at all times to answer my queries prior to and following surgery. As a single traveller I required reassurance and support to make this journey and was relieved that this was offered to me. I have been extremely satisfied with the surgical procedure and end result. This has been a life changer for me. The only thing I can suggest to others is, to ensure you take a good supply of bottled water with you during the hospital stay! A grateful thank you to my Bookimed coordinator Sadeq, Dr. Ergin Er and medical staff.

Istanbul Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center

Hi, ich hatte eine Bruststraffung mit Implantaten und möchte meine Erfahrungen gerne teilen. Ich wurde vom Flughafen abgeholt und ins Hotel gefahren, was super geklappt hat!Da ich erst am nächsten Tag den Op Termin hatte, habe ich die erste Nacht im Hotel geschlafen und wurde dann morgens von meiner Dolmetscherin Nevin abgeholt und in die Klinik gebracht die wirklich nur zwei Minuten zu Fuß entfernt war! Dort angekommen wartete mein Op Arzt Dr. Ergin Er schon auf mich um die Op endgültig nach meinen Wünschen vorzuplanen ich fühlt mich sehr gut aufgehoben! Seine Art beruhigt einen also mich hat sie beruhigt. Alles abgesprochen ging es weiter zur Blutabnahme die Ärztin für die Narkose stellte mir einige Fragen ob ich Medikamente nehme oder an Krankheiten leite etc. halbe Stunde später war ich schon in der Op. 3 Stunden war ich in Narkose die üblichen Dinge die sich kaum vermeiden lassen zb Übelkeit oder schmerzen nach der Narkose sind auch mir passiert aber dem sollte man sich im Klaren sein wenn man plant eine Operation zu machen! Genauso wie man nicht kalt kochen kann kann man auch schmerzen nach einer Operation nicht vermeiden, lindern durch schmerztabletten. Man bekommt Antibiotika und Schmerzmittel. Ein Tag später konnte ich im Hotel schon schlafen und zwei Tage später wurden die drainagen gezogen (unangenehm aber auszuhalten, müssen sowieso raus). Das Hotel sehr schön sauber riecht so lecker irgendwie und die Hotelfachangestellten super nett und zuvorkommend. Sie wissen das man eine Operation hatte und sind sehr hilfsbereit. Essen top! Man geht dann ab und zu so wie es der Dr. veranlasst zu Kontrolle ansonsten you need to rest und am letzten (7.) Tag geht man zum verbandwechsel und wird dann zum Flughafen von den zuständigen gestellten Taxen gebracht auch nette Leute sehr hilfsbereit! Ich habe nichts negatives zu sagen weil nichts vorgefallen ist was mich verärgert oder enttäuscht hat! Wer sich hier behandeln lassen möchte macht alles richtig 👍 ich bin sehr zufrieden und froh das ich durch bin 😁 An die Raucher man soll nicht rauchen ja, aber wer raucht sollte sich vorher um Zigaretten kümmern es gibt keine Automaten oder Zigaretten zu kaufen in der Nähe! Ciao 👋

Questions and answers

What is breast reduction?

Breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) is a surgical intervention aimed to lessen the volume of the mammary glands, improve the breast shape, and displace the nipple-areola complex.

Why do women want to reduce the breast?

Dissatisfaction with the large size and congenital mammary glands asymmetry are the main reasons why women decide to reduce their breasts. Besides, large breasts can lead to health problems such as:

  • posture’s deterioration
  • spinal curvature because of uneven loading
  • the organs disfunction because of the spinal deformities
  • headaches, back pain, muscle spasm because of the load of the cervical spine
  • problems with gait and balance
  • breathing difficulty while lying down and sleep disorders
  • increased mammary glands sweating, maceration, diaper rash (dermatitis). 

What are the contraindications for reduction mammaplasty in Turkey?

Breast reduction is a minimally invasive surgical intervention, however, it has a list of contraindications:

  • preparation for pregnancy, childbearing, and lactation
  • age up to 21 (by this time, breast growth stops)
  • diabetes
  • benign and malignant neoplasms
  • serious diseases of the kidneys and liver
  • cardiovascular system disorders
  • endocrine pathologies
  • infectious diseases, especially in the acute stage
  • blood diseases
  • some diseases of the reproductive system
  • mastopathy
  • dermatological diseases in the area of breasts.

What are the risks of the surgery?

When deciding on getting the surgery, it is important to be aware that breast reduction surgery in Turkey may lead to some complications. Such postsurgical complications may occur after the intervention as:

  • infection
  • swelling and hematomas
  • suppuration
  • divergence of sutures
  • necrosis.

To avoid these complications, choose a high-class surgeon and follow all specialist’s recommendations after the procedure.

What are the most common side effects after breast reduction?

The most significant reasons for possible postoperative side effects are surgeon errors and non-compliance with medical recommendations. The most common of them are:

  • Loss of sensitivity (partial or complete) — develops because of the nerve fibers damage. As a rule, sensitivity is finally restored in a few months after the operation.
  • Asymmetry of the mammary glands — often the result of severe postoperative edema (swelling) or surgeon’s error. Corrected only by repeated operation.
  • Scar formation — consequence of the very large tissue volumes removal. Cosmetic procedures will help make scars less noticeable.
  • Fast return to the previous breast volume — even after the surgery, the breast may enlarge again (usually in patients with severe hormonal imbalance).

One of the most serious consequences of breast reduction surgery is the inability to breast-feed. However, some mammaplasty techniques can save the possibility of normal lactation in the future. Discuss your surgery plan with your doctor to be able to find a compromise. 

What is the preoperative preparation?

  1. Lab testing (urinalysis, biochemical analysis, Rh factor blood test, analysis for HIV, syphilis, hepatitis B and C, coagulogram, ECG, chest X-ray, ultrasound of the mammary glands). You also need an examination by a therapist, gynecologist, and sometimes a phlebologist and other specialists.
  2. Preoperative consultations — the surgeon and the patient will discuss the risks and the desired result. The doctor carries out 3D modeling before the operation to evaluate the result immediately. 
  3. Light diet — during the month before the operation, doctors recommend to keep a healthy diet rich in vitamins, minerals, and amino acids, do not drink alcohol and do not take blood thinners. 
  4. Maintaining your weight after the surgery— if you want to lose weight, it is better to do it before the operation, because significant weight loss after breast reduction can affect the breast shape and final result.
  5. Quitting smoking and taking hormonal contraceptives — 6 months before breast reduction, you should stop smoking (or at least limit it as much as possible) and take hormonal contraceptives. Otherwise, there is a risk of blood clots, which is very dangerous.

What are the methods of breast reduction surgery in Turkey?

Reduction mammaplasty in Turkey is performed by various methods. Only the specialist can decide which method is right for you during the consultation.

 

Vertical breast reduction technique

It is the most preferred method of reduction mammaplasty. The surgeon performs an incision around the areola (periareolar incision) and a vertical one - from the areola to the fold under the mammary gland. This technique helps to significantly change the size and shape of the breast, avoid complications, and saves the possibility of breastfeeding.

 

Classic (anchor) reduction mammaplasty technique

The operation allows you to remove significant amounts of breast tissue. It is the best method for people with gigantomastia. The surgeon performs a periareolar incision and incisions in the form of an inverted T — along the areola contour, between the areola, the base of the mammary gland, and along the fold under the mammary gland. The suture that remains after the anchor reduction is more noticeable than after other operations, however, the method is highly effective and in some cases is indispensable.

What is the breast reduction process?

  1. Before the operation, specialists take a photo of the mammary glands to compare the result with the initial shape. 
  2. The doctor marks the skin of the chest and the anesthetist administers anesthesia. During the surgery, the patient is under general anesthesia.
  3. Breast reduction surgery takes 1.5-3 hours. 
  4. The surgeon makes incisions, removes excess glandular and fatty tissue, excess skin, dislocates the nipples and areolas, tightens the tissues to make the breasts elastic.
  5. The breast specialist inserts sutures and establishes temporary drainage for fluid removal.
  6. The patient is applied with a compression bandage. 

Find out more information about the operation process here.

How long is the recovery period after reduction mammaplasty?

At least 1-2 days after breast reduction in Turkey, the patient stays in the clinic. After that, the doctor removes the drainage, applies a bandage, checks indicators, and discharges the patient from the clinic.

In general, the rehabilitation period after the breast reduction surgery takes about 6-8 months. Only after this period, you can evaluate the result completely. However, in 3 months you can notice the first results of breast reduction surgery.

The younger the woman, the better the effect and faster recovery. Young skin is elastic and holds its shape better, so the sutures heal more quickly. The volume of removed tissues also affects the surgery outcome — the larger the breast volume is, the longer the recovery period will be.

More details about the recovery period after breast reduction you can find here.

What rules should you follow during rehabilitation?

Even after discharge, the patient needs to follow some recommendations that significantly affect the surgery outcomes:

  • At least a month after the operation, it is necessary to wear special compression underwear 24/7, and after a couple of months — only during the day.
  • In the first 3-4 weeks, any physical activity has to be eliminated. During this period it is recommended to stay in bed. 
  • Shower and any water procedures are prohibited during the first week after the procedure.
  • In 10-14 days, you need to visit the surgeon to remove the stitches. The barely noticeable scar may remain.
  • Within a month after removing the sutures, it is recommended to avoid the sauna, solarium, swimming pool, bath. It is also undesirable to go to the beach.
  • In the first weeks, and rare cases, months, patients are disturbed with bruises and swelling. To minimize the discomfort after the operation, you need to sleep on your back. 
  • In 4 weeks you can return to work and the usual lifestyle.

Where can you get breast reduction abroad?

There are 3 most popular destinations for breast reduction among Bookimed patients.

Thailand

Thailand is attractive among tourists because of highly-developed plastic surgery specialty, experienced surgeons, and affordable prices. Thai clinics offer the breast reduction surgery price package which allows saving up to 70%. The boob reduction cost includes pre- and postoperative tests, the breast surgery, anesthesia. Local clinics provide medical services in accordance with international standards.

 

Turkey

Plastic surgery in Turkey is the best price-quality ratio. The breast reduction procedure cost is 2 times lower than in Europe. The breast reduction is performed by doctors practiced in the USA and included in the list of world best plastic surgeons.

To answer how much is a breast reduction exactly is possible only after consultation with a doctor.

 

Spain

Spain is one of the best countries for breast reduction in Europe. Annually over 500,000 plastic surgeries are performed here. Breast reduction in Spain is performed by specialists who are in TOP-10 leading plastic surgeons in the world.

The breast reduction cost in Spanish clinics is one of the lowest in Europe.

How to choose the clinic for breast reduction surgery in Turkey?

To choose the medical center for breast reduction, take into account such factors:

  • Experience of specialists. The success of breast reduction in Turkey depends on doctor’s professionalism. Learn CV, accreditation, and certification of a chosen doctor. Also, ask the portfolio of the postsurgical results. The breast reduction cost may be influenced by the degree of a specialist.
  • Status of a clinic. It is better to perform breast reduction in the clinics which have international accreditation. It means that all the procedures are carried out according to the world treatment protocols.
  • Breast reduction reviews. Real patients’ testimonials about breast reduction help to choose the most suitable country and clinic. They give information about how much a breast reduction costs.
  • Boob reduction price. The high boob reduction price cannot guarantee that a procedure is performed by a top plastic surgeon. In such countries as Turkey or Thailand breast reduction is as successful as in European countries, but breast reduction and implant cost is 2-3 times lower. The clinics perform breast reduction in Turkey for women and men. Female and male breast reduction surgery cost is calculated only individually.

How to go for breast reduction abroad?

If you have doubts about choosing the country or clinic and need any additional information regarding breast reduction, submit a request on Bookimed. We will contact you and suggest the best variant taking into account all your requirements.

To find out how much is breast reduction, send a photo of your breast. We will resend it to a chosen medical center. Within 3 days, a clinic will provide a bill with breast reduction cost.

What is the level of medicine in Turkey?

Healthcare is the key development sector of the Turkish government. The Turkish authorities are convinced that care for the citizens' health should be an absolute priority of state policy and spend about 77 billion liras for healthcare annually.

As a result, 28,000 medical facilities provide excellent medical care in the country. About 50 centers have certificate of JCI (Joint Commission International), the international improver of healthcare quality and safety across the globe. The index of certificates obtained is the largest. To compare, Israel has 20 JCI-accredited facilities, and Germany — only 10 clinics of this type.

Why is Turkey trendy for medical tourism?

Turkey is also a well-known country globally due to high-skilled doctors that undergo internships in American and European institutions. Patients from Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait, the UAE, Jordan, and Lebanon prefer treatment in Turkey to other places.

Highly developed medical centers and first-rate therapeutic services at affordable prices attract people from all over the world. Over 1 mln international patients travel to Turkey annually. So Turkey is among Top 10 countries with the most developed medical tourism sector.

Turkey is a top destination for medical tourists because of low-costs. You may save up to 50% on services compared to European countries or the USA due to the average local citizens' income and general price policy within the country.

What hotel services are provided here?

In Turkey, hotels of different price ranges and service levels are presented. The level of Turkish hotels is comparable to hotels in Tunisia, Morocco or Egypt. Most tourists choose 4 and 5 star hotels with all-inclusive meals. Such hotels have everything for a comfortable stay: varied food, a large well-groomed territory, animation for children and adults. Some hotels have their own water park, which guests can use for free. Budget travelers can afford to book an economical 3-star hotel with half board or no meals at all.

When is the best time to travel to Turkey?

The main advantage of Turkish resorts is the long beach season. On the Mediterranean coast, it starts in April and lasts until November. In the resorts of the Aegean Sea — from May to October. The most comfortable time for swimming is from mid-June to the end of October. A large influx of tourists is in July-August, when the air temperature is +38°C, and the water warms up to +27°C.

Do I need a visa?

In 2020, the Republic of Turkey has visa-free agreements with 89 states. Some foreigners are exempted from obtaining entry visas, others are required to receive an electronic visa (e-Visa), and still others must apply for a visa at Turkish missions abroad.

What documents are required to apply for a visa to Turkey for treatment?

Visas for travel to Turkey require a number of documents. The necessary papers can be submitted 90 days before the planned departure. Lists of documents includes:

  • ID card
  • confirmation of online registration and filling out the questionnaire
  • certificate of income and availability of funds ($50 per day per person)
