No need to mention how much the look is important for women! At this point, it is known that many women want to undergo breast lift surgery. However, those who want to undergo this operation must have some factors. It is not the kind of operation that everyone can benefit from.
As the number of aesthetic applications is increasing day after day, it becomes easier for women to achieve the look they want. It is possible for the breast, which loses its old appearance due to a number of reasons, to regain its form thanks to breast lift operation.
One of the most important components of the female breast is fat. Serious sagging is experienced in the breasts due to some issues such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and continuous weight gain and loss. Breast lift is one of the most suitable solutions for those who complain about sagging and want to have a more feminine appearance. Thanks to the development of technology, much more successful results are obtained from breast lift operations. For this reason, the number of people who want to undergo breast lift operation is increasing day after day.
Why is breast lifting surgery necessary?
Breast lift surgery is not an operation that should be done due to any health problems. At this point, we have to express that there is a choice. If the nipples viewed from the outside stays above the fold of the breast, we cannot say that there is any problem. However, If the breast goes down to the level of the fold line, it means that the problems have been started. In other words, we can say that sagging started to occurs. If the breast is below the fold line and the nipples are facing down, as a result, breast lift surgery can be performed.
For breast lift surgery, a specialist doctor should be doing this operation in the best way. Whether the person will need surgery or not will be determined by the doctor. However, as in all aesthetic operations, the surgeon’s experience is very important when it comes to breast lift operation. If you are considering breast lift surgery, you should work with a highly experienced surgeon who can do this job in the best way. You should consider the cost of surgery as the second stage.

How is breast lift surgery performed?
Breast lift surgery is less popular comparing to nose and ear aesthetic operations. Therefore, information about it is more limited. This surgery is performed under general anesthesia. We should clarify that the duration of the operation changes depending on which technique will be used. However, it is known to be a surgery that takes between two to four hours. Silicone prosthesis is placed under the breast for people who have slight sagging during surgery. Procedures similar to breast reduction surgery are applied to people whose mammary gland is sufficient but whose breast sagging is visible. However, there is no question of mammary gland reduction for such patients.
In cases where the mammary gland is quite insufficient, a silicone prosthesis is placed under the breast. Then, the abundance is collected in the skin, similar to the breast reduction technique. Removing the mammary gland is not possible.
As we mentioned before, breast lift surgery cannot be performed for everyone. At first, the patient is examined on an outpatient basis. During the examination, the nipple location and the amount of the mammary gland are measured. What the patient’s expectations are also considered. If there is a slight sagging and the amount of mammary gland is at an acceptable level, a silicone breast prosthesis placed under the mammary gland can be used. With this operation plump and erect breasts, which many women dream of, are revealed.
Many women have severe breast sagging. If such cases are examined and the amount of mammary gland is sufficient at the same time, various recovery operations are applied by performing similar operations to breast reduction techniques. However, in some cases, besides excessive sagging, it is noticeable that the mammary gland is also insufficient. In such cases, a silicone prosthesis is first placed in the breast. As a result, breast recovers and improve its appearance.
Considering the above details, breast lift surgery is an extremely difficult and demanding process. In particular, it is an operation that requires a technical knowledge level. The size of the prosthesis to be placed under the breast and the rate of recovery in the breast skin are decided during the surgery. Therefore, as we mentioned before, the patient should choose to seek service from a surgeon who has high knowledge and experience.

What happens after breast lifting surgery?
Breast lift surgery is an extremely serious operation. Therefore, the process is not completed with surgery alone. There are many other actions that need to be considered in order to protect the health of the patient. At this point, ice compress treatment is started immediately after surgery. In addition, sports bras are worn for protection. No dressing is required except for the tapes on the stitches. After 24-48 hours of the operation, the drains placed in the surgery are removed. A shower can be taken a day or two after the drains are removed. Stitches are removed 15 days after the operation.
After breast lift surgery, the sport bras should be worn for at least four weeks. Thanks to the sport bras, the patient is prevented from suffering after the operation. In other words, the patient feels more comfortable and safer. Immediately after the operation, the breasts, which are noticeable with edema, take the shape they should be after a while. However, the final form of the breast will differ between eight to ten weeks.
There may also be those who want to apply for breast lift operation after pregnancy. At this point, there are mothers who want to know if they can continue to breastfeeding their baby even if they have the operation. The continuation of milk giving function differs according to many criteria. The chosen technique for breast lift and the rate of sagging of the breast will determine whether the breastfeeding function continues. However, women who have just become mothers can continue to breastfeed their babies even if they undergo breast lift surgery. There will be no risk in this regard.
There is a possibility that the patient’s problems will continue after breast lift surgery. Especially those who become pregnant again after the operation or those who gain and lose weight may cause sagging in their breasts. At this point, those who are considering breast lift surgery should be women who do not want to become pregnant again. In addition, we should be clear that women who do not have serious fluctuations in basal body weight are the most suitable candidates for the operation.
Are there any risks for breast lifting surgery?
It should be explained that some risks or complications may occur during breast lift surgery, as it is in other plastic surgeries. First of all, problems such as bleeding, blood loss or blood pooling in the tissue can be encountered. In addition, scar healing may be delayed or a significant scar may remain on the patient’s body. However, we must clarify that this situation is very exceptional. It is known that there is such a risk for those who have diabetes or those who have been smoking for years. Different treatment methods are used for those who are suffering from this problem.
It should be mentioned that there are risks such as infection, wound opening, inflammation and stitching. However, such problems are not so serious. In particular, the opened stitches which it can be sewn again.
