Breast Lifting is an aesthetically surgery to make the sagging breast uplifted, fuller and voluminous again. The ideal breast shape is accepted as that the nipple is on top of the breast mass (top of pyramid) and above the bottom curve of the breast. This point is taken basis when determining the ptosis degree. Maximum case of ptosis is when the nipple has gone down until the bottom curve of the breast and looking down. Sometimes, there are cases we call “pseudoptosis”in which the nipple is above the bottom curve but the breast tissue has sagged under the bottom curve.
Generally breast lift is similar to breast reduction. The operation lasts 3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. The size of ptosis and expectations of the patient mainly determine the surgical process. As the excess skin is removed, there will be a certain reduction of breast during this operation although the breast tissue remains the same. If the patient wants to have the same size or bigger breasts, prosthesis can be used. What makes the difference with breast augmentation surgery is that there will be a similar scar left like the breast reduction surgery. Between 2 and 6 months you will experience the wonderful difference.
