ABOUT BREAST LIFTING IN TURKEY

.
BREAST LIFT SURGERY COMMONLY REFERRED TO AS MASTOPEXY, IS A PROCEDURE THAT AIMS TO LIFT THE BREASTS BY REMOVING EXCESS SKIN AND TIGHTENING THE SURROUNDING TISSUE TO RESHAPE AND SUPPORT THE NEWLY LIFTED BREAST CONTOUR. THIS SURGERY CAN HELP IMPROVE THE OVERALL APPEARANCE OF THE BREASTS, MAKING THEM LOOK MORE YOUTHFUL, FIRM, AND PERKY. WOMEN OFTEN UNDERGO BREAST LIFT SURGERY AFTER SEEING CHANGES IN THEIR BREAST SHAPE AND SIZE DUE TO FACTORS SUCH AS PREGNANCY, BREASTFEEDING, WEIGHT FLUCTUATIONS, AND NATURAL AGING PROCESS. THE PROCEDURE CAN BE COMBINED WITH BREAST AUGMENTATION OR REDUCTION SURGERY TO ACHIEVE DESIRED RESULTS.

PEOPLE WHO ARE CURIOUS ABOUT BREAST LIFT AND MOMMY MAKEOVER OPERATIONS

Q: Where are the surgical scars happening?

A: The location and size of the scars (surgery scars) depends on many factors, especially the degree of sagging. If there is a small sagging, these scars can be on the upper half of the nipple, as well as in the form of an inverted-T in excessively droopy breasts (starting around the nipple and extending down to the bottom of the breast and then continuing under the breast).

Q: How is the healing of surgery scars?

A: They usually show a fairly acceptable improvement and disappear quite a lot over time. The healing of scars depends on many different factors, such as the genetic characteristics of people and the color of their skin.

Q: Is there a loss of feeling in the nipples?

A: In most women who have undergone breast lift surgery, the sensation continues in the period after the operation.

Q: After my pregnancy and breastfeeding periods, in addition to sagging, there was a decrease in my breasts more than they normally are. Can augmentation along with lifting be done at the same time?

A: Both removal and enlargement of the breasts during the same surgical intervention is a method that is applied quite often.

Patients may have little drains in their breasts from 24-48 hours.
