Depending on the degree of sagging, there will be different operation techniques and scars for breast lift surgery.
There are three main methods and scars for breast uplift. Breast lift surgery can be performed by making an incision around the areola (peri areolar). There is also a technique to be made in addition to the peri areolar scar, with a vertical scar extending from the areola to the inframammary fold (lollipop breast lift).

Operation and Early Period of the Operation
The Breast Lift is performed under general anesthesia and It takes 2 to 4 hours. In suitable patients, sagging can be eliminated by simply placing a breast implant. In this case, the scar will only be on the inframammary fold. I want you to stay only one night in hospital. Thin tubes – drains may place to the surgical area in order to prevent possible blood accumulation.
It is usually comfortable after surgery. Pain is usually not a problem. I apply a bra-like dressing with elastic bandage and dressing at the end of the operation.
I open dressing after 2 days and check the wound. On 5th-7th day I usually open the bandages over breasts and want you to wear a supportive bra which we will supply for you. If resolvable sutures are not used, sutures will be taken after 10 days. I want you to wear the supportive bra for 6 weeks and start massaging as instructed by the nurse at the beginning of the 3rd week. There may be swelling in the early period, numbness in the nipple and bruises on the skin. None of these are permanent, disappear in a short time.
I want you to stay away from heavy sports (fitness, running, etc.) for two months. My breast lift patients usually return to their daily life within an average of 3-4 days.
Aesthetic breast uplift surgery is generally an operation that gives good and permanent results, improves the mental health of the person and her husband, and makes them more connected to life. The newly shaped breast will last for a long time, but weight changes, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and gravity can cause new sagging.
