Every woman wants to have plump, big and esthetically good looking breasts. The information about breast reduction surgery also holds for breast lift surgery. The distinction between is that, along with the sagging, the breast has a normal size or eviscerated, but it is not big in size. Breast tissue may lose its volume as a result of weight loss and ageing or following the lactation process, and it may look saggy since the skin covering it remains loose. The appearance of sagging breasts is restored via breast lift surgery. For sagging breasts that do not have sufficient volume, more than one breast lift surgery might be necessary.
In order to have perkier breasts, breast lift surgery might be combined with breast prosthesis implantation. In breast lift surgery, the excess skin is removed, the diameter of the areola (pigmented area around the nipple) is reduced, and the nipple is lifted up. Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Surgery lasts about 2 to 3 hours depending on the intervention. The patient is hosted in hospital for one night.
Surgery scars and technique varies according to how much sagging breast the patient has. Alongside with beautiful breast, the aim is to leave as less scars as possible. For less saggy breasts, the technique which leaves scars only around the nipple is preferred, whereas for much saggy breasts, the technique which leaves vertical scars going down from the nipple is preferred.
The pain after the operation might be eliminated via simple painkillers. All of the sutures are dissolvable.
The patient may get back to work after 3 to 4 days.
