Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

The breasts which complete the aesthetic appearance of the body should be upright, ideally sized and symmetrical. A woman’s breast volume decreases due to reasons such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, frequent weight fluctuations, heredity, traumas, menopause and aging, and the ligaments connecting the breast tissue to the anterior chest wall loosen. The result of these is saggy breasts which are aesthetically unpleasant in appearance and can cause social and psychological problems.
n undeformed breasts, the nipple remains above the inframammary fold (IMF) in the lower part of the breast. However, with time, the nipple falls below this fold as the breast losses skin elasticity and tissue volume. In this case, the most effective and permanent solution is breast lift surgery.

With a breast lift, breasts that have lost their volume and form are reshaped and lifted thereby appearing fuller. In Turkey, where this procedure is performed by experienced doctors, successful results have been obtained.

Breast Sagging

There are various degrees of saggy breasts. The degree of sagging is usually measured according to the alignment of the nipple with the crease underneath the breast (the inframammary fold).


Grade 1 ptosis (mild sagging): If the nipple is close to or at the same level as the inframammary fold, it is called grade 1 ptosis (mild sagging). In mild sagging, only the tissue around the brown part of the breast is removed. If there is a decrease in the volume of the breast tissue, a prosthesis can also be placed under the breast.


Grade 2 ptosis (moderate sagging): Here, the nipple is 1-3 cm below the inframammary fold. In moderate sagging, the excess skin is removed by making a thin incision around the brown part of the breast and descending towards the breast fold, and the nipple is moved to where it should be.


Grade 3 ptosis (severe sagging): This occurs when the nipple is 3 cm or more below the inframammary fold. In severe sagging, an inverted-T shaped incision is made. In this case, a horizontal scar will remain under the breast. However, the advantage of this incision is that the breast can take a full conical and round shape.
