Breast lift surgery is performed for inevitable breast sagging caused by factors such as childbirth, breastfeeding, weight gain/loss, ageing, genetic structure and hormonal changes along with the force of gravity. During breast lift surgery, sagging breast tissue is reshaped and downward-pointing nipples are positioned correctly. As Apex Clinic, we restore your breasts to a perkier and more aesthetically pleasing shape with breast lift surgery performed by specialist surgeons at our hospital.
Breast lift surgery is a procedure that can be performed in patients over 18 years of age. In patients over the age of 40, breast lift surgery may be performed following a breast ultrasound and mammogram assessment. During breast lift surgery, the milk ducts are left intact considering that the patient may breastfeed after giving birth.
Breast lift surgery is a procedure involving two separate methods, either making a downward incision from the nipple or an anchor-shaped incision, considering the size of the breasts, the degree of deformation and elasticity, and is performed under general anesthesia in about 3 hours.
Patients who will undergo breast lift surgery should stop using blood thinners, smoking, and drinking alcohol and herbal teas prior to surgery.
Painkillers will be sufficient for relieving pain after breast lift surgery, pain relief will be sufficient, and the pain will be completely relieved after 1 to 2 days. After breast lift surgery at our hospital, the patient will be checked every 2 to 3 days and sutures will be removed in 10 to 12 days. After thebreast lift operation, the patient should avoid sports such as tennis and swimming. These sports strain the chest muscles. The patient should not lift heavy objects for 3-4 weeks after the operation, should not lift their arms unless necessary, and should not drive for the first week.
The patient should avoid sweating for the first 15 days after surgery, protect the breasts from direct sunlight for 4 to 6 weeks, and use a non-wired bra for 3 months. The patient can shower 3 to 5 days after surgery. The patient may use plasters and ointments to help heal the incision scar. Sexual intercourse should be avoided for 1 week after the operation and breasts should be protected from impact and contact for 6 weeks.
