What is Breast Lift?

Breast lift surgery is performed to obtain breasts that are compatible with the body size. In particular, breasts that do not contain enough muscle in their tissues and lose their vertical appearance over time due to factors such as birth, frequent weight gain, and breastfeeding.

Moreover, breasts lose their elasticity over time due to the effect of gravity. This also causes sagging. Although it may be tried to be erected with non-operative methods, it is not a permanent solution. In such cases, breast lift surgery may be more aesthetically pleasing when performed.

Cost of Breast Lift

The cost of breast lift surgery will vary depending on the anesthesia, operating room facilities, and so on. The surgeon performing the surgery is also among the factors that affect the cost. In other words, breast lift cost depends on the surgeon’s experience, the treatment performed, and the location of the office.

Frequently Asked Questions About Breast Lift

Who Should Get This Surgery?

Is Breast Sagging Degree Important?

The sagging breasts are classified. There is a first degree of sagging if the current sagging is at or near the breast line. Generally, if the nipple is below the breast bottom line or at the level of the nipple, there is sagging in the chest.  In such a sag, tissue is taken from the area around the areola and the breast lift is performed.

The nozzle head is 1 or 3 cm below the udder line. In such cases, more skin is removed and breast enhancement aesthetics are performed. Also, an incision will be made around the areola and an incision is made to the bottom of the breast.

Finally, if the nipple is below 3 cm below the breast, it is understood that there is an advanced sagging. Mastopexy in the form of reverse T sark is applied in third-degree breast sagging. Breast sagging can be removed after this procedure which causes a horizontal leave under the breast. In general, the around cone shape is given to the breasts.

Breast Lift Surgery Preparatory Process

Normally, the breasts of women differ. However, control is made via the breast bottom line in order to determine the rate clearly. Patients are informed about the extent to which the nipple is below the breast line.
