Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

It is a surgical procedure that involves the recovery of the sagging breast tissue, removal of the excess skin, and repositioning of the nipple to a higher level. If there is a loss of volume, the results are crowned by placing implants.

WILL I HAVE SCARS

Since breast lift required the removal of excess skin, it is not possible to perform it without leaving scars. Therefore, it would be more logical to attempt to have surgery after deciding between lifted breasts with scars and sagging breasts without scars.

HOW WILL MY SCARS LOOK?

Scars resulted from the incisions made around the nipple are not noticeable because they are in the joint area of the areola and the normal skin. Usually the patient has a fine line-shaped scar extending downwards from the nipple. In cases of extremely sagging breasts, your scar may be in the shape of an inverted T.

WILL I EXPERIENCE A LOSE OF NIPPLE SENSATION?

Breast lift usually does not cause LOSE OF NIPPLE SENSATION; however, this risk is higher in cases of extremely sagging breasts.

WILL MY ABILITY TO BREASTFEED BE AFFECTED?

The ability to breastfeed is not affected because breast lift involves the removal of excess skin and does not involve considerable intervention in the breast tissue.

WILL MY BREASTS SAG AGAIN?

If you experience considerable weight changes after surgery, you may experience sagging again.

DO I NEED IMPLANT?

Significant volume loss occurs in sagging breasts, especially if the sagging has occurred after pregnancy. In such cases, only lifting may not be adequate, and aesthetically better results can be achieved by performing breast lift in conjunction with implant placement. It is a surgical procedure that I often perform.

WILL THE IMPLANT BE PLACED SUBMUSCULARLY AGAIN?

Yes. Since I find sub-muscular plan useful and safe for long-term results, I place implants under the muscle during breast lift operations.

WHAT ARE THE RISKS OF THE SURGERY?

As with all other surgical procedures, there are some risks such as hematoma (accumulation of blood under the skin) and infection, but they have low probability.

DOES SMOKING HARM?

Absolutely. I tell my patients to definitely quit smoking. If smoking is continued, healing problems and dehiscence can be seen in the suture line. In this case, medical dressing is needed and the final aesthetic result is adversely affected. In heavy smokers, darkening of the breast can be seen, and this indicates that the surgery has been ruined. Long-term dressings and additional surgery costs can be required.
