Breast reduction is a plastic surgery Turkey procedure designed to reduce the excessive breast size, heavy breast weight—and to reposition drooping nipples. The result of boob reduction surgery is an aesthetically appealing breast appearance—with a more proportionate size and shape. 

The procedure is carried out by removing excess fat, glandular tissue and skin. Many women can benefit from breast reduction surgery procedure in Istanbul and can lead a healthier, more comfortable life--while enjoying a beautiful, more attractive breast appearance. 

Unfortunately, breast reduction is not available on NHS and patients need to pay for the procedure out of their own pocket. UK patients may find traveling abroad for plastic surgery an attractive alternative to the exorbitant price of breast enhancement surgeries in the UK.

Patients traveling for breast reduction surgery abroad can be a life-transforming endeavor for women living with excessively large breasts. Women who undergo boob reduction in Turkey tend to experience an improved self-image, elevated self-esteem and a better quality of life. 

Another added benefit of undergoing a breast reduction in Turkey is increased physical activity—even basic tasks like bending down to pick up something, or shopping for a new dress can become far more comfortable. 

Breast reduction with breast uplift Turkey 

Breast reduction and breast lift Turkey surgery is a holistic cosmetic breast contouring treatment designed to fulfill the functions of both procedures—breast reduction and breast uplift— in one extensive plastic surgery treatment. 

The procedure intends to improve the size and shape of the breasts. Breast reduction in Turkey involves reducing the size of enlarged breasts by removing excess tissue and skin. A breast lift is performed in order to raise and lift the breasts. Combined together—breast reduction and breast uplift—can help relieve problems inflicted by overdeveloped, sagging breasts such as: 

  • Loss of sensation from stretched nerves 
  • Grooves on the shoulders from bra strap 
  • Skin irritation 

Breast reduction and breast uplift surgery in Turkey is performed under general anesthesia. The plastic surgeon will make an incision to lift and reshape the breast tissue. 

Impact of large breasts on women

In addition to the cosmetic concerns, heavy breast weight can also interfere with women’s daily activities. Men who suffer from large breasts can experience pain in the upper back and neck, bra strap grooving, rounded-over posture—as well as feeling conscious about one’s appearance. 

Breast reduction is one of the most in-demand cosmetic breast procedures in Istanbul in terms of patient satisfaction, as it provides relief to women who are suffering from exceedingly large, heavy breasts.  

Breast reduction surgery for men 

Some men suffer from overdeveloped, female-like breasts. Gynecomastia surgery Turkey can help reduce the size of male breasts and restore a more ripped chest appearance. Male breast reduction is one of several plastic surgery treatments for men designed to remove breast tissue and excess fat in the chest region.  

Breast reduction and breastfeeding 

Many women are concerned with the effects of breast reduction surgery on breastfeeding. Luckily, our plastic surgeons in Istanbul take a very cautious approach when performing breast reduction surgery to protect as much of the lactation function as possible.

The most commonly employed method in breast reduction surgery in Turkey is one that has the best implications for breastfeeding later in life. In this approach, the areola isn’t completely removed and, as such, the connection between the nipple and breast ducts is left intact. If the breast reduction procedure involves the nipple completely removed and then surgically reinserted, your chances of exclusively breastfeeding can be compromised. 

Good candidates for a breast reduction surgery 

Good candidates for breast reduction surgery in Turkey are women who wish to address the aesthetic and physical effects inflicted by large breasts. Ideal candidates for breast reduction surgery in Istanbul should be in reasonably good health and have sensible expectations of this boob enhancement surgery. 

Your assigned plastic surgeon will meet with you for a preoperative consultation and perform a thorough assessment. He will listen to your concerns and talk to you about your cosmetic goals, and help you decide if this procedure is suitable for you.

Our cosmetic surgeons in Istanbul can also recommend what size is proportional to your height and weight. Doctors advise patients to be close to their ideal weight at the time of the breast reduction surgery in Turkey because if you lose weight after surgery, your newly contoured breasts can lose shape.

You may be a good candidate for breast reduction surgery if you have one or more of the following symptoms: 

  • Your large breasts limit your physical activity
  • You experience back, neck or shoulder pain due to heavy breasts 
  • You have indentations from your bra straps 
  • You have skin irritations beneath your breasts 
  • You have droopy, stretched breasts 
  • Your nipples rest below the breast crease when unsupported 
  • You have enlarged areola. 

Breast reduction Turkey procedure 

During a breast reduction procedure in Turkey, your plastic surgeon will place an anchor-shaped incision or a vertical incision to remove excess tissue, fat and skin. The areola will be repositioned. The breasts are then redraped and reshaped with skin from around the areola and the incisions are closed. 

In some cases, liposuction Turkey is required in breast reduction procedures in Turkey to eliminate excess fat from the armpit area. Sometimes, liposuction alone may be used for breast reduction. Breast reduction procedure is traditionally performed under general anesthesia and can last from two to four hours. It can also be carried out on an outpatient basis.

Breast reduction Turkey by liposuction 

In certain instances, breast reduction can be performed using liposuction surgery alone. Some of the benefits of liposuction for breast reduction are shorter, less invasive procedure, undetectable scars on the breasts and long-lasting results. That being said, this breast enhancement technique can only achieve the desired results in certain patients.

The best candidates for breast reduction by liposuction technique are patients who desire a modest reduction in breast size, have good skin elasticity—and little to no sagging to correct. 

Patients whose excess breast size is a result of excess fatty tissue are ideal candidates for breast reduction by liposuction. 

Breast reduction Turkey techniques in Turkey

Depending on your aesthetic goals and anatomy, there are several surgical techniques for breast reduction. Plastic surgeons at Clinichub have extensive experience with both the standard ‘traditional’ Wise-pattern (anchor-shaped scar) and the relatively new technique known as ‘short scar vertical’. 

There are pros and cons to each breast reduction method—and our plastic surgeons will take their time during the pre-surgery consultation explaining the different breast reduction techniques. 

All breast reduction surgical techniques reduce the size of the breast and also provide a substantial breast uplift—which restores the breast’s youthful appearance.   

Vertical or “Lollipop” breast reduction technique 

Female patients who need a modest reduction in the breast size and have more visible sagging are often good candidates for a vertical breast reduction technique. 

Lollipop breast reduction technique involves two incision sites: one is around the edge of the areola—and a second incision running vertically from the bottom of the areola, or the crease beneath the breast. This incision technique gives the plastic surgeon the ability to remove excess fat, skin and breast tissue and to reshape the new smaller breast internally. 

While a vertical breast reduction technique can leave minimal scars on the breast, it is only limited to the area below the nipple—hence can be easily concealed beneath a bra or a bikini top. 

Inverted-T or “Anchor” breast reduction technique 

The inverted-T breast reduction involves 3 incisions: one around the edge of the areola, one vertically from the areola to the breast crease—and one placed along the crease underneath the breast.

Since this breast reduction surgical technique allows for the maximum degree of tissue removal and breast reshaping, plastic surgeons in Istanbul will typically employ this method if a patient requires a more significant breast size reduction and/or has considerable sagging or asymmetry to correct. 

The scars results from an inverted-T or anchor breast reduction are similar to those from a vertical breast reduction technique.   

Regardless of the breast reduction technique employed, in our plastic surgeons’ expert hands, these incisions will be as minimal as possible, and in time, with proper post-operative care, these scars will subside.

Exercise must be avoided for about a month after breast reduction surgery in Turkey. During the first 4-6 weeks, you will need to be careful when you wear your bras. The doctor will give you a set of instructions regarding wearing a good sports bra—or other supportive garments while you heal. 

Results of breast reduction surgery in Turkey can last for a lifetime. Nonetheless, it’s worth considering the natural process of aging, weight fluctuations or the birth of a child, as these factors can affect the results of breast reduction surgery. That’s why you need to discuss the results of breast reduction surgery with your doctor in a preliminary consultation. 

Breast reduction recovery tips: 

Post-op care

Once the surgery is complete, your plastic surgeon will wrap your breasts and chest in gauze and surgical dressing. This will help protect your incisions as heal. The doctor may ask you to keep the dressing on for one week.


The doctor will apply surgical tubes for one night to drain away excess fluids that flow after the breast reduction surgery. Drainage can last a couple of hours and will reduce swelling after the procedure. 

Surgical Bra

Before leaving the clinic you will be fitted with a surgical bra—and you need to keep it on for several weeks to keep your breasts secure as they adjust to their new contour. 

Pain management 

Like any surgical procedure, there’s bound to be pain and swelling for several days—or a few weeks—following your operation. It’s not unusual to experience bruising and tenderness in the affected area. Our doctors will be able to prescribe pain medications to help relieve the symptoms. 

Rest and Recuperate 

While you might feel more comfortable post-surgery, it’s pivotal to give your body some time to heal. As such, it is important to treat yourself kindly and not to exert physical effort, especially in the early weeks after your breast reeducation surgery in Istanbul.
