Transgender Top Surgery in Istanbul

Mastectomy, also known as transgender top surgery, is very often the first step for female-to-male transgender patients. There are different techniques performed for starting the transition process towards physical manhood and bilateral mastectomy is the most common one.

In order to have a masculine chest, unwanted breast tissue is removed with milk ducts and excess skin, while the nipples are properly placed and sized. Top surgery is a cosmetic surgery supported with hormone therapy and is very often the beginning of changing the patients’ appearance to become male.

The success rates are remarkably high and top surgery patients are usually very satisfied with the results. This procure is permanent, the actual breast tissue is removed altogether, so the breasts will not grow back in the time of it the patient gains weight.

Patients undergoing transgender top surgery physically recover quickly and their self-esteem improve significantly. There is greater coherence between how you look outside and how you feel inside after the procedure which directly improves patients’ social life.

How long is recovery after from Rhinoplasty?

Rhinoplasties are usually common and easily completed procedures. Every nose is unique so there is not a single time of recovery like a hair transplant or an eye surgery. Were you able to breathe normally? Did you have trouble sleeping? Did you have septum deviation or was the amount of cartilage in your nose enough for the procedure? There are many different questions that result in different recovery periods after rhinoplasty but of course, we can make generalizations.

Usually, the patient stays at the hospital for 1 night after a regular rhinoplasty surgery. At some complicated septoplasties where the nose is blocked by bone and cartilage, the patient is expected to stay at the hospital for 2 days for changing the wound’s dressing and regular doctor visits. After 1 or 2 nights, the patient is discharged, ready to get on with a normal life. The wound inside the nose is expected to heal after a week but once the tampons are removed, the quality of life increases instantly.

After 2 weeks, most of the swelling and bruising resolves but doctors say it takes around 3 to 6 months for the nose to settle into its new shape. After a year, patients’ new nose is fully healed. The most painful process is the first couple of days like most plastic surgeries, the result can be seen instantly and there are usually no limitations about daily routines.

What is the best age to get Laser Eye Surgery?

The eye is a changing and evolving organ. If a person is far-sighted or near-sighted; their prescription changes over the years. Especially during puberty, the eye glasses used changes more often. There is not a “defined best age” to get laser eye surgery.

Lasik is not approved for people under 18 years in many countries unless there is an emergency. It is most commonly performed between ages 20 and 40 but advised by ophthalmologists after mid-twenties; once the eye prescription is stable for a few years.

There are few determining factors to have laser eye surgery. The cornea of the person should be suitable. The eyes should be in a good condition, not too dry from using too much contact lenses. The eye prescription should not be too low or too high. Your surgeon would inform you about the suitability of your eye but it is a very common procedure with very high success rates.

Key is to wait until your eye stabilizes at a certain degree, preferably 2 years. The second half of twenties are commonly preferred before the eyes start to change around 40. People with older age prefer mono-or-tri focal lenses where a lens is inserted into the eye and frees the patient from all eye-glasses.
