What is mastopexy?

Mastopexy in Turkey, also known as breast lift, is an operation to reshape and lift sagging breasts. Mastopexy involves removing the skin and tissue from the lower part of the breast and repositioning the nipples.

Breast firmness is determined by genes. However, there are other factors that affect breast firmness and cause sagging, such as childbirth, breastfeeding, significant weight loss, ageing and gravity. The breasts sag as a result of the relaxation of the ligaments that support them.

Sagging breasts are generally associated with ageing and considered a negative appearance that affects women’s self-confidence and self-image. If left untreated, sagging breasts can cause emotional distress and depression.

Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) gives women the chance to regain the firmness of their breasts, look younger and feel better.

How is mastopexy performed?

Breast lift surgery is generally performed through incisions in the breasts. It involves removing excess fat and tightening the surrounding tissues to reshape and lift the breasts. Breast lift surgery can also be performed in combination with breast enlargement surgery.

Breast lift surgery can be divided into three stages:

1. Incision

The incision method, which is the first stage, is very important in breast lift surgery. The most common incision techniques are as follows:

  • Donut: The incision is made around the areola
  • Anchor: The incision is made around the areola, vertically downwards from the breast crease and horizontally along the breast crease.
  • Lollipop : The incision is made around the areola and vertically down from the areola to the breast crease.

Your surgeon will determine and suggest the most appropriate and best incision method for your breast lift, taking into account the size and shape of your breasts, the elasticity of your skin and the degree of sagging of your breasts.

2. Lifting and remodelling

After the incision, the breast tissue underlying the mammary gland will be lifted and reshaped, and excess skin from your areola or the underside of your breasts will be removed to improve firmness. Your nipples will be repositioned or your areola resized to fit the new shape of your breasts.

3. Closing the incisions

The incisions are closed with skin adhesives or surgical tape. The incision lines are permanent, but they usually disappear or fade significantly in due course.

If you are also looking to improve the size of your breasts, you can have combined breast lift and breast implant surgery.

FAQ – Frequently asked questions

How long does mastopexy last in Turkey?

As long as you maintain a balanced diet and do not suddenly put on too much weight, the results of mastopexy can be maintained indefinitely. At least, if the operation is carried out correctly.

During the operation, breast ptosis should not cause any pain, as it is performed under general anaesthetic. Post-operative pain is present, but is calmed by the prescription of painkillers.

Breast lift surgery is fairly harmless in Turkey. They are well controlled, with an estimated success rate of over 96%, at least in the most reputable clinics. So there’s nothing to worry about.

It is possible to combine a breast lift with other short-term operations such as rhinoplasty or implants. But for longer operations, it becomes difficult for the body to bear.

Whether or not you can breastfeed after ptosis depends first and foremost on the extent of the problem. Too much ptosis can make breastfeeding impossible. For this reason, avoid this operation when you are breast-feeding.

A mastopexy lasts just 4 hours, and requires an overnight stay in hospital. However, the medical procedure takes place over several sessions (making contact, etc.). You should therefore expect to spend a week in Turkey.
