What is breast uplift surgery in Turkey?
Breast Uplift (Boob Lift or boob job Turkey); Aging and hormonal
changes, births and breastfeeding, weight gain and loss, genetic predisposition are the factors that cause
sagging breasts. With the effect of gravity and aging, the intramammary ligaments that keep the breast
tissue upright in the body become deformed and loosened. The result is a breast appearance with loose skin,
emptied and nipples pointing down.
Sometimes in women who have never given birth, sagging breasts occurs
due to the effect of aging and genetic factors, or an enlargement of the colored circle in the middle of the
chest can be observed.
This surgery, called breast uplift or mastopexy, is a surgery similar
to breast reduction surgeries. The difference is that while excess breast tissue is removed during breast
reduction surgeries, these tissues are reshaped and used to provide fullness in the breast during the
lifting surgery. If the breast tissue is insufficient to create fullness and volume, a lift is performed
using an implant (prosthesis).
It is not possible to achieve the desired results with breast sagging
treatment performed with non-surgical methods.
There are some reasons that affect sagging breast . The first of these
is aging. With the advancing age, the body begins to lose its elasticity, and with the effect of gravity,
sagging boob occurs.
Pregnancy is a natural event that causes drastic changes in body
physiology. During pregnancy, breasts enlarge and sagging is more common in enlarged breasts. The enlarged
breasts become hollow and sagging with the weight loss experienced after the post-pregnancy breastfeeding
process is completed.
Weight gain and loss:
Human nature can gain and lose weight from time to time. In this case,
some changes occur in the volume of the breasts. This volumetric change causes enlargement of the breasts.
After weakening, sagging boob occurs because the enlarged breasts will decrease in volume.
Elastin and collagen proteins, which give elasticity to the skin, are
damaged by smoking. These damaged proteins can no longer give elasticity to the skin and sagging occurs on
the skin. The skin, which loses its elasticity on the breasts in the same way, loosens and begins to sag
Overexposure to UV rays:
Overexposure to harmful rays from the sun also causes deterioration in
the natural structure of the skin. The skin begins to age rapidly, wrinkle and lose its elasticity. In this
case, sagging of the breasts is inevitable.
Breasts should be supported with clothes:
When the clothes that will support the breasts (bra, sports vest, etc.)
are not worn while doing sports or exercising, the free movement of the breasts causes sagging boob. In
normal life, choosing the wrong bra also causes the breasts to sag.
Sports or not erxercising:
Exercise and sports are essential for your body to stay healthy. In
order for our muscles to remain healthy and strong, the body should be supported by exercise or sports. When
these activities are not done, the body will remain motionless and the muscles will weaken. With the
weakening of the muscles, sagging breast occurs.
Some Medicines Used: Some medicines used after some diseases you have had can also cause sagging of the

How is breast uplift surgery
It is a surgical procedure performed by a plastic surgeon using general
anesthesia. Which technique will be used in a breast lifting operation depends on how sagging your breasts
are and how much lift is required. Your surgeon will use the most appropriate technique.
After your pre-operative controls are completed, your surgery can be
started. First of all, your surgeon makes some markings to determine the position where your breasts should
be lifted while you are standing.
You will then be given general anesthesia. Excess fat and skin tissue
in the breasts are removed by making an incision in the form of a sea anchor on your breasts, that is, a
circle around the dark areos and a straight line under the breast. The breasts are adjusted according to the
marked parts and lifted upwards. Then, your doctor will position the areolas (the dark circle in the middle
of the breasts) according to the appropriate place in the shaped breasts and reduce them if there is an
abnormality in their size.
Your surgeon will remove excess skin during surgery to make your
breasts look firmer. Then, the closing of the opened incisions, which is the last stage of your procedure,
begins. The incisions are usually opened from the less visible parts of the breasts and closed with
What is the best timing for breast
You can have a breast lift (mastopexy) operation if you have completed
your pregnancy and breastfeeding period or if you are no longer planning to have a child. Since the
pregnancy process causes some changes in the structure of the breasts, if you are thinking of getting
pregnant again, postponing it after pregnancy will prevent you from experiencing sagging again.
