What is Breast Lift?

Breast lift surgery aims to correct the bad appearance caused by sagging breasts. In this surgery, excess skin tissues formed by sagging are removed. The breast tissues that have sagged downwards are moved upwards towards their previous places. At the same time, the nipple is raised to the required level.

A detailed examination of the patients should be performed before breast lift surgery. Breast sagging may be in different amounts and shapes in each patient. After the medical examination, it can be decided with which technique the patient will undergo breast lift. The aim of breast lift surgeries is to create a breast that the sagging is removed and the nipple is where it should be. In addition, an essential point is to perform the surgery in a way to leave the minimum scar.

Here, it is decided how big an incision will be made according to the shape of the patient's breast. Breast lift surgeries are performed under general anaesthesia and last an average of 2-3 hours. Drains are placed in each breast during the surgery. One night hospitalisation is required after the surgery. Drains are removed in an average of 3 days. You can usually travel within 10 days after the operation.

Benefits of breast lift surgery include lifting and reshaping sagging breasts, improving breast symmetry, restoring a more youthful breast contour, and enhancing overall body proportions.

Breast lift surgery primarily addresses breast sagging and reshapes the existing breast tissue but does not significantly change breast size. However, combining breast lift with augmentation or reduction may alter breast size.

Yes, breast lift surgery can help correct breast asymmetry by lifting and reshaping the breasts to achieve better symmetry. However, perfect symmetry cannot always be guaranteed.

Breast lift surgery cannot be reversed, but revision surgery may be performed if necessary to address complications, correct unsatisfactory results, or make further improvements.

Yes, breast lift surgery can be performed without implants to address breast sagging and reshape the existing breast tissue. However, combining breast lift with augmentation may be necessary to achieve the desired volume and fullness.

What is Breast Lift?

Sagging and loss of firmness in the breast structure can be restored to its former state with breast lift surgery. With this operation, the area is rejuvenated to a younger and more aesthetic appearance. Additionally, various other procedures can be performed alongside this operation. Therefore, a detailed examination is required before the procedure.

Why Should You Get Your Breast Lift In Turkey?

  • Modern Facilities: Many private clinics and hospitals such as TrustMed in Turkey are equipped with modern facilities and adhere to international standards.
  • Privacy: You may prefer to undergo your Breast Lift in Turkey, away from your local community for added privacy. Turkey offers a degree of anonymity for individuals seeking cosmetic surgery.

Are You A Good Candidate For Breast Lift?

  • are not pleased with your current body contour,
  • stopped breastfeeding at least a year ago,
  • have no problem in the examination of your breast tissue with imaging methods (mammography, breast USG),
  • are determined to undergo cosmetic surgeries to have your desired body.

Preoperative Preparation and Operation Process

Your surgeon evaluates the patient's breast structure, medical history, expectations, and desires. This stage is important for the surgeon to create a suitable surgical plan for the patient.

  • Anesthesia: The surgery is performed under general anesthesia. This ensures that the patient does not feel any pain or discomfort during the operation.
  • Incisions: The doctor makes predetermined incisions to reshape the breast tissue and correct sagging skin. These incisions are typically made around the breast, under the breast, or around the areola.
  • Removal of Excess Tissue: The doctor removes excess skin and sagging tissue from the breast to give it a younger and firmer appearance.
  • Reshaping of the Breast: The remaining breast tissue and skin are reshaped to achieve a more youthful appearance. The size of the areola can also be adjusted if necessary.
  • Closure of Incisions: The incisions are closed, and stitches are placed. These stitches are usually dissolvable.

What Can You Expect After Breast Lift?

Scarring: While scarring is inevitable with any surgery, your surgeon will make every effort to minimize scarring and ensure it fades over time.

Improved Breast Appearance: As you heal, you'll begin to notice the improved appearance of your breasts, with a reduction in size, improved shape, and lifted position.

Increased Comfort: Many patients experience relief from physical discomforts such as back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as improved mobility and comfort in clothing.

Emotional Well-being: Breast reduction surgery often leads to increased self-confidence and satisfaction with body image, as well as relief from emotional burdens associated with having overly large breasts.
