Breast Lift

Breast lift surgeries are the process of recovering the sagging skin tissue in the breast. This excess skin or a very small amount of tissue is removed by making special drawings. The drooping nipple and breast tissue are structured to obtain a more upright and fuller breast.


Breast lift, also called mastopexy, allows breasts that have their volume in place but show sagging easily to be brought to the desired shape. The procedure is completed by recovering the loose skin tissue and pulling the nipple to the ideal position. Fuller and steeper breasts are achieved in this way.
The breast structure, which is deformed for various reasons, tends to sag with the effect of gravity. The sagging situation, which occurs more easily after a certain age, becomes a nightmare for women. A younger and voluminous form is desired in the chest. In such cases, the solution is breast lift operations.


Breast sagging, softness and deformation are among the most sensitive issues of women. Breast tissue, which does not contain muscle in its structure and consists entirely of sebaceous and milk glands, loses its old, lively and upright appearance over time due to gravity, aging, frequent weight gain, childbirth, breastfeeding, use of wrong bras. The breast empties or the skin becomes excessively sagging, and aesthetically, it allows women to seek various solutions.
Breasts may gradually sag due to the effect of gravity and age, as the skin loses its elasticity. Frequent weight gain, birth, breastfeeding and excessive breast size cause sagging to occur at earlier ages. In this case, a breast lift operation is required.


In breast lift surgery, many factors such as the desired breast size, shape, firmness, position of the nipple area and skin elasticity are taken into consideration by Promed Clinic specialists.
In all breast lift surgeries, there is a scar around the nipple. In some people, a vertical scar is used between the nipple and the inframammary fold, and in some people, a horizontal scar along the inframammary crease is used along with this vertical scar. Breast lift surgery takes about 2 hours.


In the process after the operation, it is necessary to be very careful and stay away from things that will tire the person. People should rest and give their body time to recover as recommended by the doctor. In the postoperative period, the person should lie on his back for 4 weeks. It is important to avoid lying face down during this process. In breast lift surgeries, scars remain at the incision sites for a while, but within 1-3 months, the scars begin to lighten and become invisible.
Smoking and alcohol use should be limited or discontinued for a while before and after the operation. Drugs with blood thinning effects should not be used. A sports bra should be used for about 1 month in order to help the breast structure take the desired shape and recover. There is no harm in using painkillers after the operation.
