If tissue loss has developed in your breasts after birth and weight loss, in addition to lifting, the breast should also be filled with silicone prostheses.
This surgery is performed for people who have sagging breasts after births and breastfeeding or due to excessive weight loss, in order to recover the breast.
As a rule, these operations, which we expect to complete the development of the breasts, are not performed before the age of 18, except in special cases.
If the size of the breast tissue is sufficient, only the lifting operation can be performed. If necessary, you will be informed and breast reduction is also performed during the lift surgery. Thus, it is ensured that the breast can maintain its upright shape for a longer period of time.
If tissue loss has developed in your breasts after birth and weight loss, in addition to lifting, the breast should also be filled with silicone prostheses. Thus, an upright and full breast image can be obtained.
Breast lift operations are always scar operations; during your first examination, you will be given detailed information about the location and size of the scar that will occur due to the size and sagging of the breast.
In our first meeting with you before the surgery, your detailed breast examination and measurements are made and the desired breast shape and size are decided. Before your surgery, mammography/breast USG is required according to your age and family history. Having a basic radiological image before the breast procedure is important for subsequent follow-ups. When 1 year has passed since your surgery, mammography/breast USG is repeated.
Your surgery is performed under general anesthesia and takes approximately 2.5-3 hours. At the end of the operation, the hoses (drain) that collect blood from the nipple entrance to be removed after 12 hours are placed and your bra is put on. After breast lift surgery, you will have mild pain that can be controlled with painkillers. Your stay in the hospital is 1 day. You can take a shower after 3 days, return to work after 1 week, get on a plane, and start light sports activities such as walking.
It can be said that the lactation rate of patients who underwent breast lift surgery is similar to that of normal women. Except for extremely large and drooping breasts, these surgeries do not completely affect milk production.
