Before & After

Saggy breasts are a problem that makes the person very unhappy as the breasts lose their firmness and deform. Breast lift operation provides ideal breast aesthetics with an upright breast and nipple appearance proportional to the breast shape arrangement. Breast lift surgery or breast lift is also known as mastopexy.

In Which Situations Is Breast Lift Performed?

All reasons such as the genetic structure of the person, rapid weight gain and loss by dieting frequently, pregnancy and breastfeeding period afterward, and the effect of gravity may present the person with sagging breast appearance.

While determining the rate of breast aesthetics; It is checked whether the nipple position is 4-5 cm above the junction of the lower chest line and the chest wall. If the nipple is on this line or below, the condition of the breasts is diagnosed as drooping breasts. For the purpose of breast lift, breast aesthetics is provided according to the shape of the breast and the degree of sagging.

As each woman’s breast shape is different, the degree of sagging she experiences is also different. Sometimes one of the breasts may be more drooping than the other. If one of them is lower than the other, breast lifting surgery to eliminate the inequality; that is, breast lift can be done.

How is Breast Lift Surgery Performed?

In breast lift surgery, sagging breasts are shaped and the skin is made more taut. With a breast lift technique, the breast is pulled higher than it is proportionally. The aim of breast lift surgery is to remove the sagging skin tissue on the sagging breasts and the breast tissue in the right proportion. As a result of breast lift, drooping breasts and nipples are brought into a shape to obtain upright breasts. In this process, if a fuller breast appearance is desired, breast lift and augmentation can be performed.

Which Techniques Are Used in Breast Lift Surgery?

Breast lift aesthetics are actually similar to the techniques in breast reduction surgery. Unlike breast lift operation, the person has a small breast structure and is saggy. In short, the breast shape is not large; but they have problems with saggy breasts. The breasts have an emptied appearance of their inner filling; that is, the breast volume is very small.

In breast lift surgery, different techniques are applied according to the condition of the person. In determining this technique, the person’s breast sagging, nipple size and location, skin type and quality, internal tissue structure and grade of the breasts, and the person’s expectations in terms of erect breasts are effective. According to the patient’s condition, “Reverse T Scar” and “Vertical Scar” techniques are often applied to achieve breast lift.

Before Breast Lift Surgery

When you decide to have a breast lift surgery, first inform your doctor about whether there is a history of breast cancer in your family. If your age is 40 and over before the operation, have your breast ultrasound and mammography done. Your doctor will ask you to have the necessary tests done before breast lift surgery. Physical examinations are performed to determine the appropriate breast lift surgery technique, and the breasts are examined in detail during this examination. Your photos will be taken for your medical records. Pre-operative breast lift models are provided with 3D imaging methods.

Tell your doctor clearly about your complaints about sagging breasts and your expectations from breast lift operation. Your doctor should know to what extent you expect to get rid of a problem such as saggy breasts and reach the ideal erect breasts profile. If you are planning to have children in the future and breast lift surgery will not affect your breastfeeding process in the future, tell your doctor about this.

Smoking should be stopped in order for the operation to go smoothly and for a rapid recovery period after breast lift surgery. If you are using drugs, these drugs may need to be regulated. E.g; Some drugs that are blood thinners are requested to be discontinued before the breast lift operation. Tell your doctor about all medications and vitamin-like supplements you use.

After Breast Lift Surgery

After breast lift surgery, it is requested to stay in the hospital for one day for control purposes. During this period, a drain is inserted for excess blood and fluid accumulation. This drain is removed at discharge one day later. When discharged, the breasts will be covered with a special corset. For this reason, do not do activities such as heavy lifting, excessive arm movement after the surgery. You need to be careful about this for 1 month. The best exercise you can do is brisk walking.

There is no harm in taking a shower except for the first 2 days of the operation. It is generally recommended to rest for 7 days after breast lift surgery; but if you feel good and work at a desk, you can return to your work life after 3 days. Do not drive after breast lift surgery until your doctor approves. Since dissolving stitches are used in the breast aesthetics process, it is not necessary to remove the stitches after breast lift surgery.

After the breast lift operation, ice compress therapy can be applied. Your doctor will inform you about this. Another important rule after the operation is that the use of corset bras should not be neglected. It is important for the healing process to wear the corset bra continuously for 4 weeks. Smoking reduces blood flow and affects skin quality. This slows down the wound healing process. For this reason, smoking is not recommended after breast lift surgery.

Breast Lift

Maintain your ideal weight after the operation. Frequent and rapid weight gain and loss may result in sagging of the breasts structurally. There should be no pressure on the breasts. Do not lie face down for this. In order to prevent the risk of staining, the breasts should be protected from the sun. After breast lift surgery, the shape of the breast becomes higher than normal and this may not seem like a natural appearance. However, from the 3rd week, it starts to return to its natural erect breast appearance and takes its ideal form in the 6th month. During this period, you may have occasional doctor check-ups.

Nasal surgery performed with the open technique is achieved by making a small incision in the lowest part of the part between the nostrils. Closed nose surgery is performed by entering through the nostrils. While determining the method, the nose shape and physiological condition of the person are taken as a basis. Generally, open nose surgery is performed on people with advanced deformities.

If everything is fine after rhinoplasty, the patient is discharged on the same day or the next day. Nose surgery recovery process may vary from person to person, for example 7-60 days. Closed nose surgery recovery time is shorter than open nose surgery recovery time. Fitting of the nose after rhinoplasty; that is, taking its full shape takes place in a period of 6-12 months.
