At our clinic, we understand that breast sagging is a common concern among many women, and we offer the mastopexy procedure to help our patients achieve the youthful, perky breasts they desire. In this article, we will provide you with all the information you need to know about mastopexy in Turkey.

What is Mastopexy?

Mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a surgical procedure that involves removing excess skin and tightening the breast tissue to lift and reshape sagging breasts. The procedure is often performed on women who have experienced changes in their breasts due to aging, weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. Mastopexy can also be combined with breast augmentation to enhance breast volume and shape.

By pulling out excess skin, which is stretched out, changing the form of the breast tissue, and elevating the areola & nipple into a more forward location, our expert surgeons, may generate a more vigorous breast contour. The Large and stretched areola can be reduced in the breast lift procedure, creating an overall better proportioned, natural looking breast.

The Benefits of Mastopexy in Turkey

Mastopexy is a safe and effective procedure that can provide numerous benefits for women who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts. Here are some of the benefits of mastopexy in Turkey:

Improved Breast Appearance

Mastopexy can lift and reshape sagging breasts, giving them a more youthful, perky appearance. This can help women feel more confident and satisfied with their appearance.

Boosted Self-Confidence

Many women who undergo mastopexy report feeling more confident and comfortable with their bodies after the procedure. This can lead to improved self-esteem and a better quality of life.

Better-Fitting Clothes

Women who have sagging breasts often have difficulty finding clothes that fit properly. Mastopexy can help improve breast shape and size, making it easier to find clothes that fit comfortably and look great.

Improved Breast Health

Mastopexy can also help improve breast health by reducing the risk of skin irritation and infection that can occur when excess skin rubs against the chest wall.

The Mastopexy Procedure

The mastopexy procedure typically takes 2-3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. During the procedure, the surgeon will make incisions around the areola and down to the breast crease. The excess skin will be removed, and the breast tissue will be reshaped and lifted to a higher position on the chest. The incisions will then be closed with sutures.

Mastopexy Surgery in Turkey

You are the right person for a breast uplift procedure if you desire;

  • To restore a better breast look following breastfeeding and pregnancy periods.
  • To increase breast contour after dramatic weight loss.
  • To enjoy an aesthetic, perky breast overlay.
  • To increase your self confidence.
  • To be able to wear your top without a bra.
  • To eliminate the growth factors.

Breast Lift vs. Breast Augmentation

Each treatment has its own range of distinct benefits and drawbacks. It is important to understand that breast augmentation works on the cup size and form of the breast and does not fix drooping breasts. A breast uplift, as opposed to breast augmentation, focuses on breast position and does not raise the size of the bust.

A breast lift is often performed in combination with breast augmentation to return the breasts to a more youthful state and to add bulk with the use of an implant. Breast augmentation with a raise, also known as an augmentation/mastopexy, will provide you with some upper breast fullness while also repositioning sagging breasts and nipple regions.

Breast Lift Without Implants

Our surgeons use different kinds of incision techniques depending on your body for breast lifting procedures; the certain exact technique used will be based on a patient’s current breast tissue, the quantity of excess skin to be removed, and depending on her personal aim. Our experienced plastic surgeons will offer the kind of breast lift that will achieve perfect results on you with the least conspicuous scarring possible.

Breast Lift Options

Types of Breast Lifts

 Crescent Breast Lift: Minimal Scarring to Correct Minimal Sagging

Our surgeons may use the ‘Crescent Lift’ technique for people who have a small amount of sagging to correct. This particular lift technique involves a little incision going halfway around the top half of the edge of the areola and is considered minimally invasive. Generally, a crescent lift can be performed solely when a patient is also having breast implants or as known as augmentation. Even in these cases, the crescent incision type is used less compared to other incision types. 

 ‘Donut’ Breast Lift or Peri Areolar lift: Corrects Mild Sagging with a Single Scar

Women who are having mild sagging still can benefit from a breast lift operation, and are often good candidates for donut mastopexy. This contains a circle incision (incision around the areola) going around the edge of the areola, and like the crescent lift, is usually performed in conjunction with breast augmentation. This particular lift technique can also be effective in helping reduce areola size. The result in terms of the scar will follow the edge of the areola and traces it.

‘Lollipop’ Breast Lift or Vertical lift: Provides More Extensive Reshaping and Corrects Moderate Sagging 

Lollipop lift is usually used, as it allows our experienced surgeons to remove excess skin and change the shape of the entire breast with modest, easily hidden scars. A vertical lift contains 2 different incisions: one around the edge of the areola, and one running vertically from the bottom of the areola to the inframammary fold, creating a ‘lollipop’ shape

 ‘Anchor’ Breast Lift or Inverted T lift: Dramatic Reshaping to Correct Extensive Sagging

If you have a significant amount of sagging, pendulous formed breasts, an anchor lift, which permits a plastic surgeon to remove the sagging tissue and a drastic amount of excessive skin, may lead to the best results. This technique contains three different incisions: one going around the edge of the areola.

Another one is vertically from the bottom part of the areola to the crease of the breast. The third incision follows along the inframammary fold, hidden in the breast crease. Our plastic surgeons may also use this method if you are considering having a breast reduction with a lift. While the anchor lift brings breast lift scars, these typically will fade significantly with proper care and can be easily hidden by a bikini or bra.

Breastlift in Turkey

In particular cases, a breast lift alone cannot achieve a patient’s wish look. If you have the sense of your breasts looking ‘deflated’ or your breasts have lost some of their volumes because of ageing, weight loss or pregnancy, our surgeons may place breast implants during breast lift procedure to restore shape and fullness to the breasts.

 Breast lifting with implants may be a solution for the women who always wanted bigger, larger and lifted breasts. Breast augmentation with lift may help you to acquire both a single operation and recovery duration. It is also possible to enlarge breasts with stem cells with the help of liposuction during a boob uplift.

Recovery after Mastopexy

After the mastopexy procedure, patients will need to rest and recover for several days. The breasts will be wrapped in a special surgical bra to provide support and reduce swelling. Most patients are able to return to work and resume normal activities within 1-2 weeks after the procedure, but strenuous exercise and heavy lifting should be avoided for at least 4-6 weeks.

Choosing a Mastopexy Surgeon in Turkey

When choosing a surgeon for your mastopexy procedure in Turkey, it is important to do your research and choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience performing mastopexy procedures. You should also look for a surgeon who uses the latest surgical techniques and technology to ensure the best possible results.

At our clinic, we have a team of highly experienced and qualified plastic surgeons who specialize in mastopexy procedures.

Breast Lift Recovery Time

Your surgeon will supply you with an elastic bandage to cover your gauze dressings during your mastopexy in Turkey. Slight swelling and bleeding may occur in the early stages of your boob uplift surgery, but this will subside within the next few days. The bandages or surgical bra will be replaced with a soft support bra a day or two after the breast uplift operation in Istanbul.
Your surgeon may advise you to wear this support bra all day for six weeks to allow your newly shaped breasts to heal properly. Numbness and lack of feeling in the breasts are normally only temporary. You will also be prescribed pain medications during the recovery in Turkey.

Life after Breast Uplift Surgery in Turkey

Having a breast lift in Istanbul is similar to resetting the time for sagging. Your breasts will still proceed with natural changes because of the ageing process, even though with proper care you should not have your previous amount of sagging for many years.

However, it is significant to understand that certain life events, such as future pregnancy or weight changes may negatively affect your final result. If you are considering having more children or if you would like to lose some weight, it is best to achieve these goals before having a breast lift.

Breast Uplift Cost in Turkey

Breast lift prices may vary depending on the techniques. Breast lift cost in Turkey is around 40-80 per cent less than that United States, Europe and the United Kingdom. Turkey is one of the most if not the most popular country for plastic surgery options, according to the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS).

Turkey’s medical tourism industry is attracted by its convenient geographic location, surgeon fee rates, low cost, and certified plastic surgeons and physicians.
