Breast Lifting -Mastopexy
You may contact us if you have any questions about Ankara breast reduction. The sagging, softness and deformity of the breasts are among the most unpopular subjects of women. Breasts that do not have muscles in their structure lose their appearance due to age, weight gain, pregnancy, birth or gravity. Breast lift is the process of correcting these problems by surgery and taking the ideal shape of the breasts.
What is Breast Lift?
In breast lift operations, saggy breast tissue is reshaped, excess skin is removed and the nipple is brought to where it should be. If the breasts are large, excess breast tissue is removed, and if it is small, it is supported by silicone prostheses. Breast lift operations are performed with reduction for those with large and sagging breasts, and with enlargement in hollow and sagging patients after birth or weight loss.
How is breast lift surgery performed?
This is usually done in middle-aged patients who have given birth. However, it can also be done in very young patients if the breasts are structurally sagging. Especially in patients with tubular breast deformity, surgery can be performed at a very early age.
As with all aesthetic procedures, breast lift operations are not applied to patients under the age of 18 unless there is a special case. According to the degree of sagging in the breast lifting operations, only around the nipple (periareolar mastopexy), around the nipple and vertical downwardly (vertical mastopexy), around the nipple, downwardly vertical, and the horizontal track located below the nipple (reverse T method) It remains. These traces become vague over time. If the nipple does not sag too much and the breast is emptied after birth, the sagging can be corrected only by placing a breast prosthesis. In this case there will be a short incision just under the breast as in augmentation surgery. Vertical mastopexy is the most commonly used method for breast lift. In this method, both the scar is not much and the aesthetic results are the best. In terms of permanence, vertical mastopexy is superior to other techniques.
