Breast tissue can sag due to different reasons, and the ligaments in the breast tissue may loosen over time. The sagging of the breast tissue is caused by reasons such as excessive weight gain, breastfeeding and gravity. This creates a mismatch in the appearance of the breast tissue. As a result, a hollow and drooping breast appearance occurs in women, which bothers them.
As Üsküdar Private Hürrem Sultan Hospital, our priority in breast lift surgeries is to have one-on-one interviews with our patients and to let them share the reasons for having this surgery with our surgeon. Our plastic surgeon doctor learns the expectations and wishes of our patient in these one-to-one interviews. He examines our patient. Then they discuss the details of the surgery together and make a joint plan.
Aesthetic breast lift surgery is performed in our hospital under general anesthesia by our plastic surgeon. Drawings of the breast tissue, which are most suitable for the patient’s body dimensions, are carefully made on the morning of the surgery. The sagging breast tissue is reshaped in accordance with the body contour. Excess skin from the breast is removed. The nipple is brought to where it should be. The operation takes between 1.5-2 hours on average. Depending on the degree of sagging in the breast tissue, scars remain at different rates. Inverted T technique is used in the surgery. All breast lift surgeries leave scars. While the traces are obvious at the beginning, they become indistinct over time.
The process after breast lift surgery is usually comfortable. After the operation, our patient stays in the hospital for one night. The pain is minimally felt and does not cause much trouble. The nipple is connected to the shoulder muscles. Therefore, in the first few days after the surgery, there may be restriction in the movements of the arm region. A special bra is put on the patient to protect the breast tissue. The bra should be used between 4 and 6 weeks. There may be swelling in the breast, numbness in the nipple and color changes on the skin in the near post-operative period. These changes disappear on their own for a short time. Our patient can return to work after 3-4 days. Patients are asked to avoid doing sports that will force their bodies for 3 months. The permanence of the surgically reshaped breast tissue continues for a long time. However, deformations may occur due to excessive weight gain, loss, breastfeeding, gravity and the ongoing aging process. Breast lift surgery, which positively affects the mental health of our patients, is a surgical procedure frequently performed by our plastic surgeon.
