Breast Lift Surgery – What You Should Know


Women wish to enhance their appearance with various aesthetic operations. Breast lift surgery also regains the old appearance of the breast, which loses its form for various reasons.

Fat is one of the most important components of the woman’s breast. That’s why in women, sagging can occur even in natural events such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, excessive weight gain and loss. As a result of sagging, women preferre breast lift operations for a safer and more feminine appearance.

You can find everything about the most applied operation; breast lift surgery. If you are planning to have a breast lift surgery, we recommend you to read our article.

Who decide for the procedure?

The best candidates for breast lift are healthy, emotionally-stable women who are realistic about what the surgery can accomplish. The best results are usually achieved in women with small, sagging breasts. Breasts of any size can be lifted, but the results may not last as long in heavy breasts.
Breast lift elevates the entire breast so that it can be in a more youthful position.
Many women seek breast lift surgery because pregnancy and nursing have left them with stretched skin and less volume in their breasts. However, if you’re planning to have more children, it may be a good idea to postpone your procedure. While there are no special risks that affect future pregnancies, pregnancy is likely to stretch your breasts again and alter the results of the procedure.

How is breast lift performed?

The rate of sagging and the size of the breasts are evaluated by an examination and the type of surgery will be decided. Breast lifting surgery performed under general anesthesia and operation takes an average of 2 hours.

Patients with mild sagging are made by implanting silicone prosthesis under the breast. In the case of moderate and advanced sagging in the breasts, two different procedures will be performed. In moderate sagging, excess skin at the top of the breast is removed in the form of a ring. By recovering from the bottom of the breast tissue, the cuts will be closed. In advanced sagging, the same application will be performed while the breast recovers towards the lower side.

Who should apply for a breast lift surgery?  

Breast lift surgery can be applied to anyone who is 18 years of age, physically healthy and has sagging problems. This surgery is not recommended for people who will have issues with the scars as the scars will remain in the breasts after the operation. It should be noted here that the scars that will occur after surgery will vary depending on the person’s skin structure, thickness and healing process.

In addition, surgery can be performed for those who are disturbed by the severe sagging of the breasts. 

What are the things that we need to be careful before the operation?

First, breast examination is performed by the plastic surgeon. In metabolic-related situations or in women over 40 years of age, breast ultrasonography and mammography are evaluated, and the operation will be decided. For a quick and smooth recovery, it is important to quit the cigarette before the operation. Aspirin and anti-inflammatory drugs must be given up from 2-3 weeks in advance. If herbal remedies or herbal support foods are used, it must be left before the operation. Information about the existing diseases and medications should be shared with the doctor in detail.

What should I do after surgery?

Ice compress treatment will begin immediately after surgery. Due to the shape support, the sports bra should be worn regularly. After the surgery, the drains that are placed in the surgery will be removed after 24-48 hours. The stitches are taken 15 days after surgery. After the operation, edema will be occurred, and the chest shape begins to appear with edema removal. It takes about 8-10 weeks for the breast to take its final shape.

What should I consider after surgery?

The doctor recommend sports bra and you must wear for four weeks. After 24-48 hours from the surgery, surgeon remove the drains. And you can get shower 1-2 days after it. You should avoid lifting or pushing heavy during 3-4 weeks. You must keep away intense training or sports at least one month and also avoid sexual intercourse least one week.

Will I be able to breastfeed after a breast lift surgery?

Breast lift surgery is performed according to the structure of the breast. The operation is performed by using the breast’s own texture if the breast is large enough. In small breasts, silicone prosthesis will be used. Breast reduction surgery will be performed for the women that have large breasts before the lifting and the other surgeries using silicone prosthesis will not damage the milk glands and milk glands will be protected. So, breastfeeding is continued comfortably.
