Breast Lift Surgery
Information: Breast uplift surgery (Mastopexy) restores shape and volume that may have been lost due to age, weight loss, or nursing. With most breast lifts, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position in order 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, the breast uplift surgery reshapes the sagging breast tissue; excess skin is removed, 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 make massage in 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
Then you are a good candidate for a breast uplift surgery.
How is Breast Uplift Surgery Performed?
Breast uplift surgery can be performed with different techniques. The techniques we use are briefly;
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 Mark 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.
Postoperative Care and Recovery
Immediately after the breast uplift surgery
After the breast uplift surgery, a bandage is usually wrapped around your body and you will be wearing a corset.
You can start to feel a bit of pain when the effect of anaesthesia passes. To get rid of such pains, do not neglect to use the prescribed pain killers regularly.
You might experience bruising, numbness, the sensitivity of the nipple, scratching of the incision or hardening of the breast tissue. These side effects will pass within a few weeks. You don't have to worry.
The recovery process after breast uplift
It is very important that you follow all the postoperative instructions given to you. These will include information about the use of the corset, the use of antibiotics and painkillers, and what exercises are appropriate for you.
Are Results of Breast Uplift Surgery Permanent?
The results obtained during the breast uplift surgery are permanent for long years if there is no weight gain or loss or unless pregnancy occurs. Since these surgeries are usually performed in combination with breast reduction or breast augmentation, the results can be even longer.
How is Pregnancy and Breastfeeding like after Breast Uplift Surgery?
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 a number of technical procedures, the ability to provide milk and sensation can be maintained.
