Sagging boob has become a problem for many women today. Every woman wants to have upright breasts, but due to reasons such as birth, breastfeeding and aging, the breasts begin to sag. Breast uplift (mastopexy) surgery is performed to restore the breasts and give them a more upright appearance.
Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Lifting
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 treat breast sagging 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.
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 over time.
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.
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.
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 breasts.
All individuals who have sagging breasts for any reason, the colored part in the middle of the breast has enlarged, nipples pointing downwards and who are over the age of 18 can undergo breast lifting surgery.
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.
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 aesthetic stitches.
The technique to be used in the surgery for breast lifting is determined by the degree of sagging in the breast.
If the sagging of the breast is in the first degree, that is, if there is a slight abundance in the breast and the breast is hollow, then a prosthesis is placed on the breast by making an incision only from the nipple and the problem is eliminated.
If the sagging of the breast is in the second degree, a lollipop-shaped incision is made, the excess skin is removed and the breasts are lifted to the appropriate position.
If the sagging of the breast is advanced, an inverted T-shaped incision is made to remove excess skin and lift the fatty tissue in the breast, and if necessary, a prosthesis can be used. If the nipple is enlarged, it is reduced and the process is terminated.

In order to perform breast lifting surgery, milk should not be coming from the breast anymore. In other words, approximately 6 months after stopping breastfeeding, a breast uplift can be applied. The reason for this is that there is a risk of infection and it should be expected that the swelling of the breasts will decrease after breastfeeding and return to their normal volume.
