However, if there is a serious sagging, the surgical scar should be accepted. Patients will have an upright and shaped chest after the surgery. Being uncomfortable with the scars after the surgery is a personal problem. The important thing for breastfeeding after mastopexy surgery is that the milk ducts and milk glands have not been interfered with during the operation. In some surgeries, if the nipple is shifted and changed, there may be possibilities such as not being able to breastfeed. It is very beneficial to discuss this situation with the doctor before the procedure.

It is essential to be examined by a specialist doctor before breast lift surgery. In case of risky patients and women over 40 years of age, breast ultrasonography and mammography are fully evaluated and the decision is made accordingly. Patients who will undergo the operation should stop smoking long before the operation and should not use anti-inflammatory drugs. It would be more appropriate to decide the drug issue together with the doctor. General anesthesia is used for surgeries. Patients with advanced breast sagging can undergo procedures similar to breast reduction surgery. If there are small sagging, a silicone prosthesis can be placed under the breast.

A sports bra is put on after the surgery to fit the shape of the chest. It is a very normal process to have swelling and edema after the surgery. After 8 or 10 weeks after the surgery, the breast can start to take its final shape. Lifting or pushing anything heavy after surgery will injure the chest. After the surgery, it is necessary to stay away from compelling sports. The type of bra recommended by the specialist should be used regularly. If the nipple milk gland ducts are not touched, the breastfeeding function will not be lost. It is necessary to abstain from sexual intercourse for at least one week after the operation.

The complication rate after performing a breast lift operation is very low. However, infection may still develop within the breast.
