Breast lift surgery is an operation which aims to re-shape the breast tissue and place the nipples in the proper position, based on the patient’s requests.
It is a 1,5-2 hours long surgery, performed under general anesthesia. Different types of scars might occur based on the deformity of the breast. All possible surgery methods leave a small scar around the nipple.
If the surgery is performed through a cut around the nipple, scar might be more apparent. In some situations, implants are used to lift the saggy breasts.
If implants are used in in the surgery, patients might have difficulty moving their arms. Breasts are bandaged after the surgery. Medical dressing is used on the nipples and is checked 2 days after the surgery. Bandages are removed 7 days after the surgery. Stitches are removed approximately 7-10 days after the surgery. Patients are recommended to use a sports bra for almost 1,5 months after the surgery.
