Breast Lift Operation in Turkey

Breast Lift Surgery

Information: Breast uplift surgery (Mastopexy)in Antalya/Turkey restores shape and volume that may have been lost due to age, weight loss, or nursing. With most breast lifts at formedi, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position to create a natural look. If you want larger (as well as perkier) breasts, a breast lift with implants might be worth researching.

Breast Uplift Surgery

Asymmetric, sagging and low-volume breasts are lifted by a breast uplift surgery and get a brand-new look. If breasts do not have the ideal size, this operation is performed by combining breast augmentation surgery or breast reduction surgery. These procedures are performed successfully in many women every year, the desired outcomes are achieved accordingly and no negative problems are encountered.

Performed by plastic surgeons at formedi, the breast uplift surgery reshapes the sagging breast tissue; excess skin is removed, and the nipple is placed at the top of the cone where it actually should be. Surgery is performed under operation theatre conditions under general anaesthesia. The duration of surgery is roughly 1.5-2 hours. The dressing is thinned in a few days and a sports bra begins to be used. This supported bra is used for two months, and patients are advised to get a massage during this period. Nipples are continuously monitored by a separate dressing. Dissolvable sutures are used in surgery. Depending on the level of sagging, patients may return to work within 7-10 days after the surgery

When to Consider Breast Uplifting Surgery

  • If you are experiencing sagging breasts due to factors like pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight gain and ageing,
  • If your doctor thinks that it is not possible to give the desired shape to the breasts by only using implants,
  • If there is sagging in the breast tissue surrounding the nipple or on the areola,

Then you are a good candidate for a breast uplift surgery at formedi.

How is Breast Uplift Surgery Performed?

Breast uplift surgery can be performed with different techniquesin in Antalya. The techniques we use are brief;

  • The “Reverse T” shaped incision around the areola goes vertically from the nipple to the breast fold and continues horizontally along the fold. It is a technique that we use in patients with advanced breast sagging.
  • A “lollipop” shaped incision continues vertically from the areola to the lower breast fold; this is a technique used to uplift the breasts with middle-degree sagging.
  • The incision made only around the areola is especially suitable for patients with a low degree of sagging.

In the techniques mentioned above, first of all, the nipple is released from the surrounding tissues. Excessive tissue is removed from the surrounding tissue and the nipple is sutured back to its ideal position after the new shape of the breast is given.

Will There Be Any Scar Marks After the Breast Uplift Surgery?

There is always a scar mark left after all the incisions made on the skin. We make these incisions in the areas underneath the underwear or to fit the natural curves of the body. In this way, the scar marks can be easily hidden and do not attract much attention in the periods after surgery.

All the incision marks in the breast will fade away in time. The size and clarity of the scar mark will vary depending on your skin type, operation and breast size.

Thanks to the special stitching techniques used during surgery, the incision marks are minimized.

In patients undergoing breast uplift surgery, mostly the milk glands and the milk channels that protect the glands towards the nipple are protected. Especially for the patients in the period of fertility, it is important to maintain the breastfeeding potential and also to protect the sensory nerves that reach the nipple. With several technical procedures, the ability to provide milk and sensation can be maintained.
