What is aesthetic breast lift surgery?

The ligaments that hold the breast tissue in place may loosen over time.

Breast lift surgery:

In aesthetic breast lift surgery, the sagging breast tissue is reshaped and excess skin is removed. The nipple is brought to where it should be. The operation is performed under general anesthesia in hospital conditions, in the operating room. It takes 2-3 hours. Depending on the degree of sagging, scars are left in different forms. Whichever method is applied, it is inevitable to leave scars around the nipple. If a breast lift surgery is performed by making an incision around the nipple, the scar around the nipple may be more prominent. In other breast lift surgeries, in addition to the scar around the nipple, 4-5 cm extending downwards from the middle part of the lower edge of the nipple. It can be a long trace. In suitable patients, sagging can be eliminated by just placing a breast prosthesis. In this case, the surgical scar is hidden only at the junction between the brownish skin of the nipple and the white skin of the breast and becomes minimal. There is no scar-free breast lift surgery. However, these traces are obvious at the beginning and become vague over time.

Stitches are removed after 7-10 days. The patient is put on a sports bra for 6 weeks and massage is recommended.
