Every woman wants to have healthy and erect breasts. Breast sagging, which usually occurs as a result of childbirth, breastfeeding a baby, rapid weight gain, is a dreaded dream of women. As babies begin to breastfeed, the breasts that grow in volume become smaller and begin to sag naturally with the weaning of the babies. Again, in women who gain weight quickly and lose weight, after losing excess weight, the breast tissue also shrinks and sags.

How to understand that the breast is sagging?

The only way to find out if there is sagging or the degree of sagging is to find out where the nipple shows in a standing person. Nipples pointing in a downward direction indicate a sagging breast. Breast sagging is divided into 3 namely light, medium and advanced.

If the sagging is 1 cm or less below the breast line, it is called mild sagging, if it is December the range of 1-3 cm, moderate sagging, if it is more than 3 cm, it is called advanced sagging.

Can breast sagging be prevented?

Some things in life cannot be prevented. Unfortunately, the natural consequences of factors such as pregnancy and advanced age cannot be avoided. Although we eat regularly and lose weight, we do sports all the time, we can’t go beyond delaying breast sagging. But it is believed that the use of appropriate bras from the age of puberty reduces sagging due to the effect of gravity.

What is breast lift surgery?

It is the erection of sagging breasts by aesthetic surgery also know as breast collection surgery. It is decided which technique will be used first in breast lift operations.

Although new techniques have been developed recently with the development of technology and the advancement of medical science, classical techniques are used in most hospitals. When deciding which technique to choose, the degree of sagging, age, areola size and chest volume are the determining criteria.

Turkey patients are taken to the operation under general anesthesia. After anesthesia, an incision is made around the breast. These incisions are classically divided into three types: around the nipple, under the breast, and sideways. After the incision, the breast tissue is lifted higher and the nipples are shifted if necessary. If there is excess visible adipose tissue, it is removed. After the breast tissues are reshaped, they are tightened and closed.

Are there any scars left after breast lift operation in Turkey?

Whether there will be any scars after surgery is one of the issues that everyone is wondering about. It is impossible to erect a breast without a trace. It is important which of the classic incision types we mentioned above is used for this issue.

In general, the incisions made under the breast are hidden by the natural appearance and posture of the breast. Scars heal noticeably over time. The scars of these incisions are tried to be minimized with special techniques after surgery. First, the traces that are pink turn white over time and become less obvious. They can’t be seen because it will stay in the bra anyway.

Here it is necessary to decide whether to answer the question of breast shape or scars. After surgery, you can see the final state of your breasts after the edema has been removed. Over time, the breast tissue will sit down and take on a more beautiful appearance.

Is breast lift surgery risky?

In these patients, there is a risk of bleeding, that is, hematoma, which can be observed after all operations. The risk of infection will increase if regular maintenance is not carried out. Patients in Turkey may experience a decrease in nipple sensation after surgery. Over time can be reversed. Color changes and skin disorders may also occur on the breast skin.

A previously unknown state of allergy to anesthetic substances can have negative consequences. Of course, these are very rare. Finally, there may be unwanted pain. If you follow a healthy diet and lead a healthy life by playing sports, the results of this surgery will also be much longer lasting. Remember that with this operation, your self-confidence will be restored and it will even be reflected in your smile.

As a result: if you also complain of sagging and low breast shape, you can get detailed information about it by contacting an experienced plastic surgeon in Turkey.
