Breast Lifting

Breast lift operations are surgical interventions that provide solutions for sagging breasts. Sagging breast mostly occurs due to deformation resulting from breastfeeding, gravity effect in time or frequent weight gain and loss cycle. In addition, sagging may occur in underdeveloped breasts at early ages.
As sagging breasts prevent women from wearing what they want, they harm their self confidence.
Deformation in breasts, which are indispensable for an aesthetic cleavage area, occurs not only in sagging breasts but also in enlarged areola region due to hormonal fluctuations. Sagging breasts also cause irritation of subcutaneous skin structure, as well as skin problems due to rubbing. It’s suggested that breast augmentation operations be considered after breastfeeding in order to avoid loss of form.

Also, it’s often preferred to perform the lift operations in combination with a breast augmentation because the skin overlying the volumetrically problematic breast tissue creates a saggy appearance. In fact, there has been a reduction in breast tissue and the skin has not adapted to this new small volume. It’s possible to remove the excess skin by breast lift operation. Only breast lifting can’t give volume to breasts. In such cases, other aesthetic applications can also be used to benefit a beautiful look. In order to increase the volume of the breast, it’s necessary to perform a fat injection or a silicone implant, i.e. a breast augmentation aesthetic.

Those who plan to have a breast lift aesthetic often have one or more of the profiles we have listed above. With modern and innovative techniques that we use in our Estetik International Clinics, we provide extremely comfortable healing processes for breast aesthetic candidates, enabling them to achieve a desired breast image.

Breast lift is often performed simultaneously with breast augmentation or breast reduction operations. During the preliminary examination, it’s clarified whether to use implant, fat injection or just breast lift according to the expectations of the patients operation. The condition of the breast tissue and the excess of the skin are examined and the operation is planned. The operation of breast augmentation under general anesthesia begins primarily with reduction of the areola area. The incision is made using the vertical scarless central pedicle technique. Then the skin and the underlying breast tissue are handled separately. Considering the possibility of breastfeeding in the future, the breast tissue is adjusted and straightened, the form is restored. Breast skin is closed as loose or tight depending on the new inner structure.

The thing to consider here is that breast lift operation will not change the breast size. It will only restore the original form of the breasts and lift them. If the breasts over or under-sized, desired sizes can be achieved within the same operation. Breast augmentation, breast reduction or fat transfer may be included to achieve this.
