WHAT OUR CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US

I was very satisfied with the service that I received. I was apprehensive at first because we hear a lot of horror stories  about people who go abroad for surgery but actually GMC provided me with lots of advice and information and reassurance and we’re always on hand to answer my questions . I could always speak to someone via whatsapp or email with any questions and they always responded quickly. I had a breast reduction and liposuction which was a huge amount of surgery . Four days later and I am feeling pleased with the results so far.

"I had breast uplift & implants with Global Medical. The team were very helpful and accommodating with all my requests. The service I got was much much better than what I would get in Switzerland. On top I paid nearly half of the cost. Perfect deal. After the procedure the team kept me well informed and answered all my questions. Would highly recommend their service to others."

BREAST REDUCTION FAQ

Smaller_Breast

Do I need any special aftercare?

As after all surgeries, you will be given a prescription for pain medication as well as antibiotics by your doctor. Please follow the medication plan that your doctor set for you. You may go back to work within one to two weeks. You should avoid strenuous activity at least for a month.

Do you have a discount for multiple procedures?

Most of our patients prefer abdominoplasty or breast lift procedures with breast reduction at the same time. Not only does a patient get a chance to have several procedures in one sitting, they also can have very reasonable discounts.

Is it okay to have the breast uplift surgery with breast reduction at the same time?

In general yes. But you and your surgeon should decide this together.

What are the common benefits of breast reduction?

Our surgeons primarily aim to reduce the size of your breasts in order to make your life much easier and active. Many women suffer heavy back, neck and shoulder pain related to heavy breasts. The main aim of this operation is to give women a more comfortable life. You can also have breast uplift surgery together with breast reduction surgery in order to reshape your breasts.

What I need to do after my operation?

Your surgeon will give you detailed instructions tailored for your situation. Please do not act before you get your customized list. But general guidelines that our surgeons are sharing with their patients is as follows:

  • You should rest when you feel tired
  • You may feel mild to moderate discomfort after the anesthesia has worn off
  • You will be given a support bra placed on you after the surgery. You should wear this bra day and night for 2–3 days (or longer) after surgery
  • You will be given a prescription for a narcotic pain medication as well as antibiotics by your doctor. Please follow the medication plan that your doctor sets for you
  • While using narcotic pain medication, you should consume liquid as much as possible in order to prevent dehydration
  • Do not consume any alcohol with narcotics
  • You may continue most of your daily routine the day after surgery
  • It is only advised that driving might be okay when you feel no pain and have an ability to react to an emergency. Please do not drive when you are on narcotics
  • Avoid straining or extending your arms over your head for about a week after surgery
  • Avoid strenuous physical activity, which can raise your blood pressure and possibly cause bleeding, for at least three weeks after surgery
  • Vigorous physical activity, such as upper body weight training, should be delayed for up to six weeks
  • Lifting something over 2 kilos, any stressful activity or working out may be dangerous as well
  • The dressing should be on the incision after surgery for 24 hours
  • You may take a shower and remove the dressing after one full day after operation. You should dry the incision gently after taking a shower
  • You should not apply any creams or ointments on your breasts.
  • Any types of swimming (pool, sea) and hot tubes is not recommended.
  • You will find steri-strips on the incision when you remove the dressing. Please do not remove these steri-strips as they will usually peel off within 10 days. If they have not come off by then, you may slowly peel them off
  • The incision is closed with the sutures which are placed under the skin. Therefore, you will not have to have any sutures removed 
  • Minor swelling and numbness on incision zone may occur
  • You will have drains placed in your breasts. You may to your hotel with these drains which are going to stay in there for couple of days
  • You should empty the drain bottles 3-4 times per day
  • The drain is usually ready to be removed when the drain output is less than 30 cc over a 24 hour period
What I need to do before my operation?

You will get a detailed customized list from your surgeon what to do and what not to do before the operation. Please do not act before you get your customized list. Here is a general guidance that our surgeons share with their patients:

  • You should inform your surgeon about your routine medication and health history

  • Chewing gum, candy or mints are not allowed before the operation

  • He will drive you to hospital and hand you to your patient representative who is fluent in your language.
