Mammoplasty-Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation is one of Maccenta Istanbul’s most popular procedures Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures performed, and that is no exception at Maccenta Istanbul. We perform this procedure on a regular basis for those patients who have travelled to Istanbul to have the procedure carried out by a highly qualified and experienced surgeon in a state-of-the-art medical facility, but at a fraction of the cost for the same procedure in their home country. Mammoplasty You may have come across this term before, and we want to ensure that there is no confusion. Mammoplasty is a term used to describe any cosmetic surgical procedures which alter the shape of a woman’s breasts. Mammoplasty includes what is commonly known as a ‘boob job’ or breast augmentation, but also includes breast reduction surgeryand mastopexy, or breast lifting . Breast augmentation is now a relatively simple procedure Of course, the type of surgery performed by us will depend on your needs. However, for modest breast augmentation cosmetic surgery procedures, the operation can take under an hour to perform. You will meet with your surgeon/specialist prior to the procedure to discuss exactly the look you are hoping to achieve. You will be informed of the full details of the procedure to ensure you are totally happy for us to perform the breast augmentation surgery, and your medical history will also be discussed in full. The operation itself would usually involve the creation of a 4-5cm incision under the breast and the insertion of a silicone implant of a chosen size, depending on how great the breast augmentation required, under the gland and muscle tissue. The incision is made in this location as it is the least visible area for any light scarring. If you have travelled from afar and have opted an all-inclusive package, you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the hospital for your procedure and, once finished, you will be driven back to your hotel as part of our all-inclusive service. Breast augmentation as part of a multiple cosmetic procedure More and more often we perform breast enhancement surgery as part of a multiple cosmetic procedure. This type of surgery can be performed alongside a Brazilian butt lift to give you a more rounded and fuller figure.

Mammoplasty – Breast Reduction Surgery

In many cases, the word mammoplasty is associated with breast augmentation procedures, but breast reduction surgery also falls under the category of mammoplasty. Why have breast reductions surgery? There are usually more reasons for wanting breast reduction surgery compared to those for breast augmentation surgery. For some of you, we know that you may worry that the size of your breasts is out of proportion with the rest of your figure, making you feel self-conscious. Having overly large breasts can also have a considerable effect on the style of clothing you wear, whether you wear a swimsuit or bikini at the beach or, it can literally limit the availability of clothing sizes to suit your body’s shape. We also perform a good number of breast reductions surgeries here at Maccenta Istanbul for medical reasons, principally to alleviate back problems caused by excessive weight of mammary glands. Whether it is simply the aging process or after having babies, larger-than-normal breasts can lose their shape and begin to droop, which once again can create feelings of self-consciousness. Breast reduction surgery can not only solve the problem of sagging breasts, but if performed sooner than later can be beneficial to the success of the breast reduction surgery, as opposed to the alternative of mastopexy (breast lifting), which is performed when breasts sag excessively. Unless for genuine medial reasons, we will not usually consider performing breast reduction surgery on any woman under 18 years of age. What is involved with breast reduction surgery? The day before the surgery takes place you will have a full consultation with the surgeon to discuss what you are looking to achieve from the surgery. Following the consult, you will have a series of radiological evaluations, including a mammography and ultrasound. The surgery will be performed under general anaesthetic and will last between two and four hours depending on the level of reduction required, followed by an overnight stay in the hospital. If you have any questions you would like to ask before booking your breast reduction procedure with us, please get in contact and we will be happy to provide you with all the answers you need. If you have travelled from afar and have opted an all-inclusive package, you will be collected from your hotel and taken to the hospital for your procedure and, once finished, you will be driven back to your hotel as part of [...]

Gynecomastia – Male Breast Reduction Surgery

Gynecomastia is a condition experienced by men where instead of having a completely flat chest, breasts protrude to a level where they resemble small and pert female breasts. The enlargement of a male breast can be as a result of a number of medical conditions, and appears either as an enlargement of the mammary gland, or increased levels of adipose fat around the breast. Causes of Gynecomastia At Maccenta Istanbul we have a professional duty of care to carry out a number of pre-operative tests to establish whether your gynecomastia is being caused as a result of hormonal imbalance or a more serious illness, such as cancer. It can simply be caused by a build-up of adipose fat, or it can even be genetic. While it is important we confirm the reason for your gynecomastia, it is still sensible to seek independent medical advice from your doctor or medical practitioner in advance of booking your gynecomasty surgery. Why choose gynecomastia, or male breast reduction surgery Women are not the only ones who can be extremely self-conscious about the appearance and shape of their breasts. Of course, the reasons why men and women are conscious about the appearance of their breasts are coming from totally different directions. In men, a flat and muscular chest is the socially acceptable norm. Men are surrounded by images of lean male bodies with flat chests and the obligatory ‘six-pack’. It is not just women who are under constant pressure to have perfect bodies. For a man, any enlargement of the breast is seen as effeminate, or having female qualities, and therefore becomes an immediate challenge to levels of masculinity. It can be embarrassing when it appears a man has small breasts, whether it is when wearing a T-shirt, when down at the local swimming pool or at the beach. We know that in many cases, you choose to avoid wearing certain clothing and avoid situations where your naked chest will be seen. This can extend even to avoiding more-intimate relationships. Gynecomastia is one of the best options available to remove ‘male breasts’ once the reason for their appearance has been clinically established. What does gynecomastia or male breast reduction surgery involve? In most cases, gynecomastia involves liposuction to remove the fatty, or adipose fat. In certain cases where the enlargement of the breast is caused by a growth of the mammary gland, this will be [...]
