Breast Lift is a surgery to reshape breasts which have sagged with the effects of gravity, pregnancy and breastfeeding. Particularly as a result of birth and breastfeeding breast skin loses its elasticity and its previous perky form. The nipples go down to a lower point. In some cases, shrinkage of the chest glands and emptying of the chest are visible. The goal in breast surgery is to give the chest a new shape and perky form.
Many different techniques can be applied in breast lift surgery. The surgical technique to be applied varies according to the degree of sagging to the size of the breasts, and the elasticity of the skin. If the breast volume has shrunk and hollowed out, silicone implants may be placed underneath the chest muscle beneath the chest glands in the same session.
The operation is performed with general anesthesia and takes 2-3 hours on average. You will stay at the hospital for 1 night and the healing is completed in about 10 days. As for scarring, although differences can be seen according to the technique used, in general it’ll be a reversed T shape. Stitches do not need to be removed as they dissolve themselves.
