Breast Reconstruction Procedure

This procedure is designed for women who underwent breast amputation after breast cancer or other conditions. Newer techniques allow the surgeon to create a breast which is very similar to the natural one. The reconstruction can be done during the amputation procedure, or a few months or even a year afterwards.

There are a number of implants: the most widely used are silicon implants which have silicon surface and filling. They come in different sizes and shapes.

Becker implants are made of a thick silicon surface (35%-50%) and a solution filling. The advantage of this implant is the ability to adjust its shape to the woman`s body. It can also serve as a skin stretcher. There are also implants with a thin silicon surface and a solution filling, which are less used.

The operation can be divided into 2 main categories: (a) a stretcher is inserted, then replaced with an implant; (b) the reconstruction is made from another body tissue.

Planing on having breast reconstruction procedure in Turkey?
Here is some General Information about Turkey:


Turkey By train

You can still travel from Europe to Turkey by train, although these days this is more of historical or perhaps even romantic interest than fast or practical. The famed Orient Express from London now travels no further than Vienna, but you can take the daily TransBalkan from Budapest (Hungary) via Bucharest (Romania), a two-night journey with a scheduled 3-hour stop in Bucharest. 1st/2nd class sleepers and couchettes are available, but the train lacks a restaurant car so stock up on supplies. From/to Greek stations there are two daily services, from Istanbul to Pythion every morning and from Istanbul to Thessaloniki every night. There are also daily trains to Istanbul from Sofia (Bulgaria).

Turkey is in Zone G of Inter Rail along with Greece, Italy and Slovenia.



The most common reconstruction is performed with a stretcher and an implant. After amputation a balloon (stretcher) is inserted under the skin and chest muscles. It has a special valve which can be filled from outside. The implant is being filled gradually with a special solution, until the skin has sufficiently stretched for inserting the implant. It takes another 3-6 months until the breast has acquired its final shape, then the nipple can be reconstructed as well.

Becker implants: sometimes during amputation the skin can be preserved. That would eliminate the need for a stretcher, and a permanent implant (Becker) can be inserted right away.

The breast can also be reconstructed with body tissue from areas with extra skin and fat, like the tummy, buttocks and back. The tissue being removed is called "a flap". Common sites to acquire the flap are the lower tummy and the lotissimus dorsi muscle from the back.

Turkey breast reconstruction - News update:
High blood pressure may be one of the top killers in the country, but you'd never know it by the way we're behaving, say scientists attending the annual congress of the Society for Critical Care Medicine (SCCM)."Research shows that some 73 million people in the U.S. have high blood pressure, yet many of them don't even know it.

This procedure can be complicated due to implant infection, a contraction of a surface of an implant, silicon leaks and anesthetic complications.

You`ll need to stay in hospital 2-7 days after the surgery, while you may feel pain and weakness for a week or two. Complete recovery may take up to 6 weeks, depending on the surgery. You may have an unusual sensation in the breast that would usually disappear over time. In most cases there could be a slight asymmetry between the breasts, however, most women report a significant improvement in their social life and self esteem.

What is the aftercare needed for Breast Reconstruction?
Once the breast reconstruction surgery has been performed, the number of days you might have to stay in the hospital is decided by the surgeon. Your doctor at Turkey(TR) will also tell you the estimated recovery time and decide on your frequency of visits for checkup. Though the bandages might be on just for a day, the redness and scarring will take a month to start fading off.
