Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy, Breast Lift)

Breast lift surgery is performed to remove the excess skin and to increase the firmness and recovery of the breast tissue.
Breast lift or lift surgery is performed to remove excess skin and increase the firmness and recovery of the breast tissue. Meanwhile, the downwardly displaced suction head is transferred to its normal position. Sometimes the enlarged nipple is reduced. The female breast often loses its youthful fullness and shape as age progresses. Decrease in breast fullness and loss of elasticity of the breast skin due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, weight gain and loss, gravity and genetic factors cause sagging of the breast. Breast augmentation surgery does not change the size of the breast. If you want to enlarge or shrink, additional operations can be performed in the same session.
To Whom Can It Be Done?
Adult women without any health problems If there is sagging due to weight loss, it can be done after weight loss stops. If you feel that your breasts are flattened, hollow and have lost their normal shape If the nipple sagged under the lower fold of the breast If the nipple is facing the ground If the areolar area (pink or brown tissue around the nipple) is enlarged You are a candidate for breast lift surgery.
Anesthesia and Surgery
We do it with general anesthesia or sedation (intravenous drug numbing) anesthesia. Pre-operative drawings are made; The amount of skin to be removed and the position of the nipple are determined. Excess skin is removed to provide fullness to the breast. After the operation, the breast tissue is supported with bandages and plasters. If necessary, a drain is placed. There is an average hospital stay of two days. After fifteen days, the stitches are removed. The intensity of the pain caused by arm movements gradually decreases within a few weeks. If there is no problem, the patient can return to his normal life within 2-3 weeks. Surgical scar remains on the lower fold of the breast, which descends perpendicularly around the nipple. The first months are more pronounced, the redness in the scars decreases over time. Over time, changes may occur in the operated breast.
Risks
As with all surgeries, there is a risk of anesthesia. Bleeding may be an infection. Especially in smokers, the risk of healing problems at the wound site and not holding the nipple is greater. There may be sensory loss in the nipple, decrease in lactation, hardening in the breast (fat necrosis). Sometimes revision surgeries may be required due to asymmetry, deformities and irregularities.
