Breast lift is an operation that allows you to get breasts that look natural, are compatible with body sizes and are symmetrical. These operations, also called mastocpexy, breast lift surgery, are performed by specialist plastic surgeons in the Swedish Clinic. By taking into account the body size of the patients, the shape and structure of the breasts are examined, the difference in the breasts is determined. If there is asymmetry in the breasts, this is also determined. Normally, every woman’s right and left breasts are different from each other. In order to determine the rate of sagging in the breasts, the bottom line of the breast is taken as the basis. From this line, it is determined how far below the nipple is. Those who want to make a breast lift surgery is to look at your breasts in the mirror first. If the nipples are below the breast fold line, the person may need this operation.
Why do breasts droop?
Sagging breasts may be related to a decrease in breast tissue due to a change in hormonal balance due to a progressive age. When the breasts are exposed to these effects, ejaculation occurs in them, hence sagging. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can also be effective in sagging breasts. Filling and emptying the milk ducts in the breasts causes the breasts to deform. Gravity is one of the natural effects of sagging breasts. Over time, gravity causes the breasts to come down, in a sense, to sag. The most important cause of breast sagging at an early age is genetic factors. A weak connective tissue that helps the breasts stand upright can lead to sagging of the breasts at an early age.
What are breast lift methods?
The amount of sagging during Breast Examination is determined by taking into account the size of the breasts, the technique to be used during breast lift. The higher the rate of sagging in the breasts, the greater the scar that will remain at the end of the operation. For this reason, breast lift surgery is recommended for people who will not worry about these scars. In this operation, the annular excess around the breast is removed and the nipple is pulled to the position where it should be. In operations performed with this method, there are ring marks around the nipple. If the sagging rate in the breasts is low, if the breasts are not too large, a silicone breast prosthesis in the form of drops can be used to enlarge the breasts before breast lift.
Healing process after breast lift surgery
When bandages placed in surgery are removed, a shapeless appearance may occur due to swelling in the breasts. A pot can form at the site of an upright incision under the breast, sometimes it can be seen that there is an asymmetry between the breasts. These negative effects can continue for up to a month. But if there is an asymmetry in the patient’s breasts earlier, it should not be expected to pass. Because the two sides of the body are different in everyone, there is no complete symmetry. After breast lift, the feeling of pain is not much. Edema and bruising may occur in the breasts. It doesn’t take long for these effects to pass. If a breast prosthesis is inserted, pain in the arms can occur for several days. Removal of the chest bandage takes up to 3 days. Patients wear an athlete’s bra that looks like half an athlete after a bandage. At least a month should pass after surgery to perform activities such as arm exercises, swimming. Since self-melting stitches are used for incision sites, patients do not experience stress of paying attention to stitches. After breast lift, it takes about 6-12 months for these effects to pass, breast tissue sensation losses to improve, and breasts to take their new shape.
Return of patients to normal life after breast lift
Patients return to work in the week after surgery. But if patients are working hard, they should wait up to 3 months. In this regard, Swedish clinical plastic surgeons will make the necessary information. Breast lift surgery results are an operation that has permanent consequences for the patient, but also has positive effects for the patient’s partner. Breasts can maintain this form for a long time. But as before, after breast lift with factors such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, age progression, gravity, sagging of the breasts can start to occur. This indicates that breast lift surgery is not effective for a long time. So patients who want to have surgery should take this into account.
