Does the implant used in
breast lifting?

Placing implants differs depending on the size and structure of the patient’s breast. If there is no excessive sagging and the size of the breast tissue is suitable for placing the implant, we can obtain a lifted breast by only placing an implant. However, in case the breast size is significantly shrunk, only breast lifting may be insufficient. In this case, performing both breast lifting and implants placed in the same operation can provide size gain to the breast.

How Does Breast Lift Operation Done?

Mild sagging:

The breast is lifted by making a small incision around the nipple. The intervention is performed through the nipple by reassembling and rising the chest tissue to the top. We obtain a lifted breast. 

Moderate Sagging:

If there is sagging or excessive skin in the lower part of the breast, the skin is extracted from that area to reassemble and tighten the breast. A downward extended scar will be seen under the nipple. 

Significant sagging:

Certain techniques are used in this case and in the end of the operation a scar with the shape of a straight line goes down from the nipple or with the shape of an inverted (T) letter will be formed.

Because of the thinned and sag being of both, connective tissue which holds the breast and the tissue of the milk glands, the incision will be down from the nipple.

The nipple is suspended upward after tissues reassembly. Surgical drains which take the blood out in order to prevent the blood gathering inside the breast are placed after the operation.
