The operation applied to the breasts with sagging breast tissue that is lower than where it should be is a breast lift operation. Breast sagging may be due to genetic characteristics, or it can often occur after birth and after weight loss.
The place of the nipple is the full projection of the nipple groove while standing upright. If the nipple is below this level, it is called sagging breast. Breast volume may have decreased with breast sagging.
Breast lift is an operation performed under general anesthesia and lasts approximately 3-4 hours. Inverted T or lollipop-shaped scars are left, the nipple is moved to where it should be and at the same time, the breast tissue is tightened. Silicone pipes (Drains) are placed in the surgical area to prevent blood and fluid accumulation in the early postoperative period. It is appropriate for the patient to spend at least 1 day in the hospital after the operation. After about 6-8 hours, after the effect of anesthetic drugs wears off, the patient can stand up.
Exercises that over-work the chest muscle should be avoided for 2 months after the operation. The patient can return to his daily work within 3-5 days. The use of a special bra that covers the breasts for the first 2 months contributes to the shaping of the breasts. The bra also reduces the movement of the breast and provides comfort to the patient in the movements made by using the chest muscle.
The most important structure to be preserved in breast lift surgery is the nipples. It is aimed to carry the nipples by protecting their blood-nerve connections so that they do not lose their sensory and color properties. Smoking, circulatory diseases, diabetes and long-term use of some medications that adversely affect blood circulation can cause circulation problems in the nipple and suture areas, which may negatively affect the result of the surgery.
In breast lift surgery, some of the milk glands and milk ducts remain intact, the patient does not have any trouble in lactating in the following periods,
If breast sagging is accompanied by a lack of breast volume, silicone breast prosthesis is used during breast lift surgery. Low-grade breast sagging can only be achieved by breast augmentation surgery with silicone breast prosthesis.
