Breasts can become saggy for various reasons. The ligaments that hold the breast tissue in place may loosen over time. Depending on weight changes, breastfeeding and the effect of gravity, there may be incompatibility between the breast tissue and the surrounding skin envelope. The problem may be related to breast tissue, skin, or both. As a result, a hollow-looking drooping breast may appear.
In aesthetic breast lift surgery, the sagging breast tissue is reshaped and excess skin is removed. The nipple is brought to where it should be. The operation is performed under general anesthesia in hospital conditions, in the operating room. It takes 1.5-2 hours. Depending on the degree of sagging, scars are left in different forms.
Post-surgery is usually comfortable. Pain is usually not a problem. If a breast prosthesis was used during the surgery, there may be limitation in arm movements for a few days. A bra-like wrap is applied on the breasts. Stitches are removed after 7-10 days. The patient is put on a sports bra for 6 weeks and massage is recommended. There may be swelling in the early period, numbness in the nipple and purplish discoloration on the skin. These disappear on their own in a short time.
The patient can return to work in 3-4 days. It is recommended to stay away from heavy sports for 3 months. Aesthetic breast lift surgery is an operation that generally gives good and permanent results, improves the mental health of the person and his partner, and makes them more committed to life. The newly shaped breast will be durable for a long time, but weight changes, pregnancy, breastfeeding and gravity can cause new sagging.
