Breast Lift in Turkey (Mastopexy)

A woman’s breasts profile often changes the shape, size, or ptosis.  Because of losing skin elasticity and firmness leads to breast ptosis. Breast lift or Mastopexy is a surgical procedure to upward, reshape, and tighten the breasts. Sometimes the areola becomes too oversize. The surgeon will reduce to balance at the same operation. A breast lift cannot make the upper part of the breast looks fuller.

In some cases, they need breast augmentation with a breast lift. In some cases, the breast size is too big when compared with the body. The patients require breast reduction surgery with a breast lift.

Turkey is one of the most popular countries for breast aesthetics operations. And we are one of the leading companies in this field. This, of course, involves the breast lift operations too. If you are looking for a breast lift in Turkey, you should consult our clinic doctors. They are going to give you individual planning for your surgery.

    Some medications are given to you for your relief during the operation. The options are anesthesia and sedation.

    The Incisions

    We offer three incision patterns, depending on the degree of ptosis—the areolar and nipple position. The surgeon marks the incision following the design required.

    After opening the incision

    Breast tissue is lifted and adjusted the shape. The nipples and areolas are moved them up to a natural look. If the patient has enlarged areolas, they reduced by excising areolas skin. The excess breast tissue and skin removed to tightening.


    Sutures breast tissue to create the breast shape by absorbable sutures, then skin sutures or medical tape to close the skin.

    Breast Lift (Mastopexy) Post-Op Instructions


    On the Day of Surgery

    When you have a breast lift, you’ll be under a general anesthetic during the procedure. After you wake up, you’ll feel groggy from the anesthetic and have some pain and tenderness in your breasts and the surrounding area.

    Once you’re up and awake after surgery, you’ll notice the immediate change in your breasts. Their size and shape will change more over the next few months, but you’ll be able to see some results immediately!

    Most women can go home on the same day as their procedures.


    One Week Later

    One week after your procedure you’ll see your nurse for a follow-up. The nurse will check your incisions to make sure they’re healing properly and remove bandages and stitches if you have them. If you have a breast lift only, there may be no stitches or bandages to remove, but these steps will be necessary if you have had implants placed along with your breast lift.

    The nurse will also discuss scar cream and when to start applying it.

    After five days—providing their scars are healing well—most people can return to work, as long as their job doesn’t involve any strenuous activities.


    The First Month After Surgery

    For the two weeks of recovery, you’ll likely feel some discomfort and tenderness in your breast area. There will be swelling and bruising too, which will start to reduce after two to three weeks. Your surgeon will prescribe some pain medication for you to take during the first few days of your recovery, but many women find that they only need pain relief for two or three days.

    Many women experience unusual sensations in their breasts after a breast lift, so don’t be alarmed if you do too! These are often tingling or burning sensations, and they occur because the nerves in the breasts are recovering from surgery too. You may also have some numbness in the skin over your breasts and in the nipple areas. As the nerves return to normal, these unusual sensations will gradually cease, usually over the course of four to six weeks. It’s very rare for loss of sensation to be permanent.

    During your recovery, your surgeon will provide you with instructions to help you take care of yourself. Limiting your activity level in the first few weeks of your recovery will be one of them. It’s very important for several reasons:

    1. High-impact exercise can put stress on your incisions and your chest area in general.
    2. Strenuous activity often leads to an increase in swelling.

    Here are some more common instructions:

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Breast lift vs breast augmentation: How to tell which is needed?

    What you need to remember is that “augment” means to add to, or make bigger. A breast augmentation will make your breast bigger. A mastopexy is a breast lift or breast tightening procedure that tightens up a breast that has a loose skin envelope. The two procedures are by no means mutually exclusive; in fact, we perform combined breast augmentation with a mastopexy or lift quite frequently. During your consultation, we will assess first your goals; do you want a larger breast or a higher, tighter, firmer breast? Second, as your surgeon I will tell you how I recommend we best proceed to achieve your specific goals. The use of other patient’s before and after pictures will be used to give you an idea about what can be reasonably achieved on my part, as well as help me better understand your expectations.

    Can breast lift with implants provide symmetrical breasts?

    Symmetry in breasts is always tricky. First, no part of our bodies are mirror image duplicates of the opposite sides. Second, while asymmetry in the breasts can be the result of asymmetry in breast size, breast shape or breast position, it can also be the result of asymmetry in the chest wall, the ribs or a scoliosis (a curvature of the spine). So, whether you undergo augmentation with implants with or without breast lift, acceptable symmetry can usually be achieved. This is another fact that will be addressed in your consult. It is a funny thing, but many times we don’t notice our own inherent breast/chest asymmetries until we make the breast larger. While some asymmetries can be improved by the surgery, others may be enhanced!

    What kind of breast lift leaves minimal scars?

    In our practice, we perform three types of breast lifts (mastopexies) a periareolar or donut lift, a vertical or lollipop lift or the wise pattern or anchor lift. These are listed in order of increasing amounts of scar and which is right for you depends on your goals. The periareolar scar is best for minimal moves of the areola/nipple or for reduction in size of the areola. This lift does not affect the overall shape of the breast much, it only repositions the nipple/areola. it is a scar around the entire circumference of the areola. (A scar only at the top of the areola or crescent lift really doesn’t work to do anything but distort the areola in the long run.)

    The vertical lift, which is the most popular in our practice, has a scar around the areola and straight down. This mastopexy works well to not only lift but to narrow the breast. This finesse and exacting technique required to do this lift means you need to find a surgeon experienced in its use. It really is the biggest lift for the amount of scar, or biggest bang for your buck.

    Some women simply have too much skin for a vertical lift and must have the Wise pattern or anchor shaped scar. The long horizontal component of this scar is the area most likely to produce a thick highly visible scar, but as in all mastopexies, it is a trade off. More scar, less excess skin, and resulting better breast shape.
    This is another example of when looking at post operative pictures can help define what is possible with your breast with each lift.

    Can breast lift and breast augmentation procedures be performed on the same surgery?

    Yes, augmentation combined with mastopexy is frequently performed in our practice. Again, it should only be performed by experienced plastic surgeons.

    Is it possible to breastfeed after breast lift surgery?

    It is possible to breast feed after breast lift as long as the nipple is left attached to the underlying breast tissue. Occasionally in lifts with tremendous amounts of excess skin it may be necessary to remove the nipple and place it back on as a free nipple graft. this is exceedingly rare. And while it is possibly to breast feed after mastopexy surgery, it is not guaranteed, there are too many variables at play.

    Should I wait until after pregnancy to get a breast lift?

    Pregnancy can really, really change a woman’s breasts. I usually recommend that if a patient is going to get pregnant in the next year, she delay breast surgery just because the breast will be different after pregnancy. How different a breast will become is impossible to predict. That being said there is no contraindication to pregnancy after an augmentation or lift, you just run the risk of wanting a revisionary surgery.

    What questions should I ask my doctor before a breast lift?

    Be very clear with your doctor what your goals are for your breast size and shape, your doctor can then tell you what she can reasonably achieve for you. Most of us would like to look great with or without a bra, whether or not that is possible depends on your body and your goals for size. The larger the breasts are the harder, faster and lower they will fall.

    What is the recovery time from a breast lift surgery?

    Depending on the amount of skin removed, most women are back at work after breast lift surgery anywhere from 2 days to 14 days after their procedure. The wide range is dependent more on what type of work the patient needs to be able to do. Heavy lifting or dirty work requires 14 days. Sedentary work requires only 2 -5 days depending on the amount of skin removed and how uncomfortable the patient feels with that degree of tightening.

    What is the difference between a crescent breast lift and a vertical lift?

    A crescent lift is a poor lift that does little but distort the areola shape. a donut lift or periareolar lift has a scar all the way around the areola and is good to lift the nipple height or reduce the size of the areola. It may have the tendency to flatten the breast. a Vertical lift is the donut lift with an additional vertical scar that extends down from the areola at the six o clock position. This lift is good to not only lift he nipple and areola but to reshape the breast into a conical shape.

    Can I combine breast lift and areola reduction in one surgery?

    By definition, a breast lift includes a scar around the areola, so an areola reduction is part of the lift. You can discuss your goals for size with your surgeon.
