Surgical body contouring following the main weight loss improves the shape of the underlying support tissue while removing excessively sagging skin and fat. The result is a better proportioned view with softer lines.
Postbariatric surgical procedures may include:
In general, candidates for postbariatric surgery:
What should I expect during postbariatric surgery consultation?
Candidates who are considering shaping surgery on your body should be prepared for the following before the surgeon interview.
Your plastic surgeon:
The success and safety of your procedure depends on your integrity during the consultation. So be sure to ask your surgeon the questions below. It is very important to understand all aspects of the procedure of postbariatric surgery. It is natural to feel excited and a little worried about your expected new look or some preoperative stress. Feel free to discuss any concerns with your plastic surgeon.
What questions should I ask my surgeon about Postbariatric surgery?
Use this checklist as a guide during the postbariatric surgery surgery interview:
The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal and you need to decide whether the benefits will reach your goals and whether the risks and potential complications of body shaping surgery are acceptable.
You will be asked to sign approval forms to make sure you fully understand the procedure and all risks and possible complications.
Postbariatric surgery risks include:
These risks and others will be fully discussed before your consent is obtained. It is important to address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.
The procedures required to achieve your goals will be defined along with a plan for the timing of these procedures.
Step 1 – Anesthesia
Medications are applied for your convenience during surgical procedures. Options include intravenous sedation and general anesthesia. Your doctor will recommend the best choice for you.
Step 2 – Incision
Whole body contouring procedures require large cuts to remove excess skin. In most cases, these incisions can be large.
The incision length and shape depend on the amount and location of the skin to be removed, as well as your personal preference and your doctor’s surgical decision. Advanced techniques often allow incisions to be placed in strategic positions where they can be hidden by most clothing types, but this is not always the case.
Postbariatric surgery is usually performed in stages. Your specific situation and goals and the thought of your plastic surgeon define how to plan the surgery.
While it may have taken you two years or more to lose your excess weight, your post-bariatric surgery surgeries may also take equally long periods of time.
You will be given specific instructions that may include:
When will you go to check your plastic surgeon?
Be sure to ask your surgeon specific questions about what awaits you in the healing process:
Care after post-bariatric surgery at home
ody shaping results are immediately visible after significant weight loss; however, it may take several years or more to see the final results.
Visible scars are something you need to accept to get a body distribution that suits your new weight and rate.
Postbariatric surgery results are usually long-lasting, provided you maintain a constant weight and overall fitness. As your body ages, it is natural for it to lose its tightness. However, the result is usually permanent.
Although good results are expected from your procedure, there is no warranty. In some cases, it may not be possible to achieve the best results with a single surgical procedure, and another surgical procedure may be necessary.
Following your doctor’s instructions is critical to the success of your surgery.
It is important that surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, movement, swelling or abrasion during healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to take care of yourself.
As we get older, our face naturally loses subcutaneous fat and tissue, and therefore the facial muscles work closer to the skin surface. Thus, smile lines and crow’s feet become more evident.
Facial skin also hangs a little and causes loss of skin volume. Other factors affecting the skin of the face are sun exposure, heredity and lifestyle.
Dermal fillers can be used in those with signs of premature aging or to make the results of facial rejuvenation surgery more acceptable.
For some patients, surgeries such as face lifting, eyebrow lift or eyelid aesthetics may be the best approach. Minimally invasive rejuvenation treatments, such as soft tissue fillers, cannot achieve the same results, but can help delay the time it is appropriate to consider a facial rejuvenation surgery. It is extremely important to know that dermal fillers are temporary treatments for facial aging, and ongoing treatments will be needed for long-term results.
You can be a good candidate for dermal fillers if:
For some patients, surgeries such as face lifting, eyebrow lift or eyelid aesthetics may be the best approach.
The decision to make a filling is extremely personal. You will need to decide whether the benefits will meet your goals and whether the risks and potential complications of dermal fillers are acceptable.
Your plastic surgeon will explain the risks to you in detail.
You will be asked to sign approval forms to ensure you fully understand the procedure, risks and possible complications.
Serious complications of dermal fillers are rare. Potential risks vary depending on the specific filler used and the relative permanence of the filler and include:
These risks and others will be fully discussed before your consent is obtained.
It is important to address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon. Although good results are obtained from your procedure, there is no guarantee that you will be satisfied with your results. Since significant complications can arise from dermal filler injections, it is important to be in the care of a board-approved plastic surgeon who understands the risks and is trained and prepared to deal with any complications that may occur.
In some cases, it may not be possible to achieve the best results with a single procedure. Most fillers dissipate over time. To resume your correction, you should consider repeating the injection periodically.
Hip implants are surgically placed silicone-filled breast prosthesis-like materials that are inserted deep into the hip tissue. Hip enlargement aesthetics, which are made through the use of fat grafts, involves the transfer of fat from one part of the body to the hip tissues. This technique is sometimes called the Brazilian Butt Lift.
In addition to hip enlargement procedures, a butt lift surgery can be performed by surgically removing the soft tissue.
A butt lift or a stitch lift improves the shape and tone of the underlying skin and fat in the hip area.
It may contribute to the improvement of weak tissue elasticity, which may cause hip drooping, due to aging, sun damage, pregnancy, significant fluctuations in weight, and genetic factors.
To get a smoother and more pleasant contour, excessive sagging skin and oil are removed. Removing a traditional iliac does not enlarge the butt, but it can improve skin surface with cellulite and irregular appearance. This procedure can be included in a body lift surgery or be done separately.
Butt lift aesthetics are definitely not designed to either remove excess fat or add volume to the butt. Fat grafts, hip implants, or butt lift (when some of your own tissues fall under excess skin) can be used to add volume. The liposuction procedure can be used together to further improve the butt appearance.
Hip augmentation surgery or butt lift surgery is a personally preferred procedure. You should do this for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s wishes or to try to fit any ideal image.
You may be a good candidate for hip augmentation and butt lift in the following situations:
The decision to have a hip enlargement or butt lift procedure is extremely personal. You will need to decide whether this procedure will meet your goals and whether the risks and potential complications of hip augmentation or butt lift surgery are acceptable.
Your plastic surgeon will explain the risks associated with the surgery in detail. You will be asked to sign approval forms to make sure you fully understand the procedure and all risks or possible complications.
Risks of butt erection or hip enlargement include:
These risks and others will be fully explained to you before your consent is taken. It is important to address all your questions directly with your plastic surgeon.
The exact type and size of facial implants requires the best fit for you, your goals, the features you want to correct, and the surgeon’s decision.
If a small chin, weak chin, or lack of facial features bother you, facial implants and plastic surgery can benefit you.
The areas where you are not satisfied on your face such as cheeks or chin can be made more compatible with facial implants thanks to plastic surgery.
Jaw implants can increase a jaw size and projection not in proportion to the forehead and mid face.
A small or indented chin may make your face look more disproportionate than it should. Jaw implants increase the width of the lower third of your face.
Facial implants contribute to both jaw and jaw facial imbalance in some cases.
Cheek implants increase the projection of the cheekbones. They add volume to areas that may be collapsed or flat.
Plastic surgery with facial implants is the best procedure for people whose head and skull have reached physical adulthood and are generally in the late adolescence.
You can be a good candidate for facial implants:
If a small chin, weak chin, or lack of facial features bother you, you can be a suitable candidate for plastic surgery with facial implants.
It is extremely important to keep the surgery area clean while facial implants are healing. Bandages and dressings can be applied after surgery to support healing and implant position.
Specific instructions will be given, including how to care for the surgery areas, oral medications to help heal, how to apply or apply creams to reduce the risk of infection, specific conditions to look for in the surgery areas or general health, and when to come for control.
Try to learn what you can expect during your individual recovery period by asking specific questions below.
The results of plastic surgery with facial implants are visible immediately after surgery. However, it is not the final result due to edema. It may take several months before the swelling and edema disappear completely.
The final results of your facial implants will last for a long time; However, the initial healing phase may include regional swelling, discoloration, numbness, or discomfort.
In addition, facial movements can be temporarily restricted or prevented. These are common conditions.
Although good results are expected from your transaction, there is no guarantee. In some cases, it may not be possible to obtain optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be required.
Following the instructions we provide is essential for the success of your surgery.
It is important that surgical incisions are not exposed to excessive force, swelling, wear, or movement during the healing period.
Facial implants surgery includes the following steps:
Medicines are given for your convenience during the surgical procedure. Options include local, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. I will suggest you to choose the best for you.
Step 2 – Cheek Implants
The specific area to be enlarged on the cheek determines where the implant is placed.
Implants from the cheek are mostly placed through incisions made in the mouth. When performed with other procedures, alternative incisions may be proposed, including insertion through an incision inside the lower eyelid or within the bristle line.
Step 3 – Jaw implants
In a jaw implant, the cut may be inside your mouth, along the crease that joins your lower lip and gums. Alternatively, it can be inserted through an incision under the chin.
Your incisions are closed with removable or absorbable sutures within one to two weeks following your surgery.
Step 4 – Results
The first results of plastic surgery with facial implants are almost immediately noticeable. However, it is not the final result due to edema. It may take several months for the swelling to completely disappear.
The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal. You should compare the risks and potential complications of breast augmentation surgery with the potential benefits in achieving your goals. You can only make this decision yourself.
You will be asked to sign approval forms to fully understand the surgery, risks, and potential complications.
Possible risks of breast augmentation surgery include:
These risks and others will be fully discussed before you have your consent. It is important to discuss all your questions with me directly.
Breast implants do not impair breast health.
Careful review of scientific research by independent groups such as the Institute of Medicine found no link between breast implants and autoimmune or other systemic diseases.
Other important points:
Breast implants are not guaranteed to last a lifetime, and future surgery may be required to replace one or both implants.
Pregnancy, weight loss and menopause can affect the appearance of the breasts throughout your life.
It requires regular examination of the health condition of your breasts after breast augmentation and evaluation of the condition of the breast implants.
Saline Breast Implants
Saline breast implants are filled with sterile saline. If the implant shell leaks, the saline implant collapses and saline is absorbed and expelled naturally by the body.
Saline breast implants provide a uniform shape, firmness and feel, and are FDA-approved in women 18 years and older.
Structured Saline Breast Implants
Structural implants are filled with sterile saline and contain an internal structure to make the implant more natural.
Silicone Breast Implants
Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel. The gel feels more like natural breast tissue. If the implant leaks, the gel can remain in the implant shell or escape into the opened pocket for implantation.
If you choose a silicone implant, you may need to visit your plastic surgeon regularly to make sure the implants are healthy. An ultrasonography or MR scan can evaluate the condition of breast implants.
Silicone breast implants are FDA approved for women 22 years and older.
Checkers Breast Implants
Appearance-resistant implants are sometimes referred to as drop nipple implants because the implant retains its shape even when the outer shell is broken.
The consistency of silicone gel in the implant is better than conventional silicone gel implants. These implants are also tighter than traditional implants.
Drop nipple implants have more projection at the bottom and narrower towards the top. If a shaped implant rotates, it may require a separate procedure for the chest to look neat.
Inserting drip breast implants requires a slightly longer incision in the skin.
Round Breast Implants
Round breast implants make breasts fuller than drop implants. You can get more projections with higher profile options.
Since they have the same shape all over the round implants, they are less concerned about their displacement.
Smooth Breast Implants
Smooth breast implants give the softest feeling. They can move with a breast implant pocket that can move more naturally.
Smooth implants may show a certain or visible fluctuation in the skin.
Textured Breast Implants
Textured breast implants adhere to the pocket created. They reduce the possibility of moving inside the breast and remain at the position where it is positioned.
Tissue provides some advantages in reducing the risk of capsules.
Implant manufacturers produce new styles and breast implants from time to time, so there may be additional options when you decide on surgery.
The most suitable implant for you will be a situation where we will decide together to achieve the appearance you desire in pre-operative examinations.
Otoplasty is an operation performed to correct the defective ears that occur at birth, which are evident by development, or an error in an ear structure caused by injury.
Ear surgery creates a more natural shape while bringing balance and proportion to the ears and face. Correcting even minor deformities can make a big contribution to appearance and self-esteem.
If the prominent or disproportionate ears disturb you or your child, you may consider ear surgery.
Children who are good candidates for ear aesthetic surgery:
Young people and adults who are good candidates for ear aesthetic surgery:
Ear aesthetic surgery is a personal procedure. You should definitely have it done if you want yourself, not because someone else wants it. Patient satisfaction is high, especially in patients who want ear aesthetics themselves.
The discomfort immediately after ear surgery is normal and can be controlled with pain medications. Itching sensation may occur under the bandage. It is important that the bandages remain intact and not removed for any reason. Failure to do so may result in loss of part of the correction and require a secondary surgery.
Be sure to submit the following specific questions about what to expect during your individual recovery period:
Medicine and surgery is not a definitive science. Although good results are expected, there is no guarantee of complete satisfaction with the results. In some cases, it may not be possible to obtain optimal results with a single surgical procedure and another surgery may be required.
Ears that can be seen when the bandages that support the new shape are removed in the early stages of ear healing after ear aesthetic surgery are almost clear results. When the ear is permanently placed near the head, surgical scars are either hidden behind the ear or hidden in the natural wrinkles of the ear.
The results of more extensive ear surgery and reconstruction may appear gradually over time.
Medicines are given for your convenience during the surgical procedure. Options include local, intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Your doctor recommends making the best choice for you.
Scoop correction of the ears uses surgical techniques to create or increase the antihelial fold (inside the ear mouth) and is used to reduce the enlarged concha cartilage (the largest and deepest inner part of the outer ear). The incisions for otoplasty are generally made on the back surface of the ear. When incisions are needed before the ear, ear folds are used to make the incisions. Internal permanent sutures are used to secure the newly formed cartilage in place.
Step 3 – Closing the cuts
Outer seams cover the incisions. Techniques are individualized, taking care not to distort other structures and to avoid an unnatural “back-leaning” appearance.
Ear aesthetic surgery, when dressings supported by the new shape of the ears are removed, in the first stages that heal, the ear is immediately results. When the ear is permanently placed near the head, surgical scars are hidden behind the ear or in the natural wrinkles of the ear.
The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal. You should compare the risks and potential complications of ear aesthetic surgery with the potential benefits in achieving your goals. You can only make this decision yourself.
You will be asked to sign approval forms to fully understand the procedure, alternatives and possible risks and potential complications you will accept.
Possible risks of ear aesthetic surgery include:
Botulinum toxin is a purified substance derived from bacteria. Botulinum toxin injections block nerve signals as soon as they are injected. If there is no signal, the muscle does not contract. As a result, unwanted facial wrinkles or appearance are reduced. Known botulinum toxin type A injection types include Botox, Dysport.
On soft goose feet, forehead lines, frown lines, lip lines
On the neck lines
Dimpled appearance of the chin skin
In lifting the corners of the mouth
Square smoothing the jaw line
It is used to fix gummy smile.
Smiling, frowning, and even chewing – essentially any facial movement – can eventually lead to one of the most common symptoms of wrinkles. It makes you look like a tired and even angry person. One of the fastest and safest ways to remove wrinkles is Botox injection.
Botox can be combined with other cosmetic skin procedures such as chemical peels, laser treatments, dermal fillers or microdermabrasion to further improve your results. The combination of these processes can help prevent new lines and wrinkles from forming.
Caution: Do not rub or massage the treated areas after wrinkle treatment, as Botox can cause it to escape to another part of your face. In such a situation, you may experience temporary facial weakness or flaccidity.
You may notice the results in a few days, but the full effect may take up to a week to appear. The effect of this treatment usually takes six to eight months.
When the effects of botox begin to diminish, muscle reactions and wrinkles will return.
Botox may seem like a simple procedure for you due to several injections. However, it is actually an art and science that an experienced healthcare professional should do.
You have 43 muscles on your face and it is vital that the person who injects botox understands and identifies the right points to optimize your treatment.
A very thin needle is used to inject a small amount of botox into certain muscles. By carefully selecting specific muscles, your doctor will only protect your natural facial expressions by weakening the muscles that produce wrinkles.
Botox treatment injection usually takes less than 15 minutes.
The number of injections you need will depend on the facial features and the degree of wrinkles. For example, crow’s feet usually require two to three injections. Five or more injections may be required for wrinkles on your eyebrows.
You can start normal activities immediately.
Although generally safe, Botox side effects and complications can include:
Wound and pain at the injection site
Temporary facial weakness or flaccidity
Although very unlikely, the spread of the toxic substance beyond the treatment area may cause signs and symptoms such as respiratory problems, swallowing problems, muscle weakness, and food poisoning such as stuttering.
Surgical application can be done on the upper covers, lower covers or both.
Whether it is applied to improve your appearance or for functional problems related to your eyelids, eyelid surgery provides a more youthful look around your eyes.
Remember that the eyelids are part of the face. The appearance of a sagging upper cap may be due to relaxation of the forehead skin and muscle.
Sometimes loosening of the upper eyelid muscle can cause the sagging eyelid. This is called eyelid ptosis and requires a different surgical treatment.
As your plastic surgeon, we will thoroughly evaluate the anatomy of your face and decide which procedures can address your concerns.
During the surgical treatment of your eyelid, lubrication ointment and cold compresses can be applied, and in some cases, the eyes can be loosely wrapped with gauze after the procedure is completed.
You will be given specific instructions including how to take care of your eyes, how to take medicines to help heal, how to apply or apply creams to reduce the risk of infection, certain conditions to look for in surgery areas or general health, and when to come for control.
During recovery, we may ask you to apply medication, cold compresses and ointments for conditions such as swelling, bruising, irritation and dry eyes. It is possible in rashes in the incised areas.
Where will I be taken after my surgery is completed?
What medications will I be given or prescribed after the surgery?
Do I need a dressing / bandage after the operation?
When will my bandages be removed?
Will stitches be removed? When?
When can I restart normal exercise and exercise?
When will I come for control for postoperative care?
Until the healing process is completed, you should be well protected from the sun and use dark sunglasses.
The results of eyelid surgery are long-lasting. You usually feel little pain in this surgery, but swelling or bruising may occur. Most patients can return to normal life within 10-14 days. However, it may take several months to fully complete the recovery.
Eyelid surgery is expected to permanently correct certain conditions. However, you will continue to grow naturally. This may slightly change the positive status of the surgery results. You can continue to protect your results with continuous sun protection.
It is necessary to follow your instructions after the operation for the success of your surgery. It is important that surgical incisions are not exposed to excessive force, wear, or movement during healing.
I will give you specific instructions to care for the wound areas after surgery.
An eyelid surgery procedure includes the following steps:
The incisions for eyelid surgery are made through the natural folds of the eyelid area to hide the scars.
The upper eyelid can be corrected through a cut in natural wrinkle on the eyelid. This allows removal of fat deposits or repositioning, tightening of the muscles and removal of excess skin.
The conditions of the lower eyelid can be corrected by an incision just below the lower lash line. Thanks to this incision, excess skin on the lower eyelid is removed. Again, excess fat can be repositioned or removed.
A transconjunctival incision formed inside the lower eyelid is an alternative technique for correcting lower eyelid conditions and redistributing or removing excess fat. With this technique, the skin is not removed.
Eyelid incisions are typically closed with stitches or skin glue. Stitches are removed within a week.
Your surgeon may recommend performing a laser or chemical peeling to reduce the discoloration of the lower eyelids.
Step 4 – See the results
The results of eyelid surgery begin to look better when the swelling and bruises gradually decrease, but the eyelid will eventually have a younger appearance.
The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal and you will need to weigh the potential benefits of achieving your goals with the risks and possible complications of eyelid surgery. You can only make this decision yourself.
You will be asked to sign approval forms to fully understand the process, risks and potential complications.
Possible risks of eyelid surgery include:
Bloating and bruising
Bleeding from cut lines
Sensitivity or sensitivity developed against the sun or bright light
Difficulty closing your eyes
Ectropion, rounding out the lower eyelid
Pulling down the lower eyelid, eyelid delay may occur and is usually temporary
Temporary or permanent change in vision and very rarely a chance of being blind
Changes in eyelash skin sensation or numbness
Revision of a surgical intervention
Exercise and weight control are all methods we use to reach flat and tight bellies. However, these methods are sometimes not sufficient to reach our goals.
Even people with normal body weight and a proportional body may have a saggy and loose abdomen appearance. The most common reasons for this are:
Tummy tuck surgery is not a suitable substitute for weight loss or exercise program.
Although the results of a tummy tuck surgery are technically persistent, the positive result can be greatly reduced with significant fluctuations in your weight. For this reason, it is recommended that people who plan a significant weight loss or women considering future pregnancy postpone the tummy tuck surgery.
A tummy tuck surgery cannot fix stretch marks, but if it’s located on excess skin areas to remove, they can be removed or the appearance may improve slightly.
In general, you can be a good candidate for a tummy tuck if you have the following features:
The tummy tuck surgery is a highly individualized procedure and you shouldn’t get it done to fulfill someone else’s desires or to comply with any ideal image. If you only want it yourself, you should consider this surgery.
During the recovery of the tummy tuck surgery, dressings or bandages are applied to your cuts. Elastic bandages or surgical corsets can be worn on your body to minimize edema and increase skin elasticity.
A small thin tube can be temporarily placed under the skin to drain excess blood or fluid.
We will give you the following instructions including the things you should follow while the tummy tuck surgery is improving:
Be sure to ask the following questions about what to expect during your personal recovery period:
Tummy tuck surgery will not be very clear because the final results of the surgery are not fully upright until the edema and internal healing are completed initially.
In a week or two, you should stand upright, relying on your new thin profile.
Tummy tuck surgery will cause you to have a flatter, firmer abdominal contour proportional to your body type and weight.
Caution: If you have had abdominoplasty before, it may limit possible outcomes.
In women who have had a cesarean section, existing scars can be included in the new wound.
After tummy tuck surgery scars are permanent. However, it decreases over time and becomes like a crack mark. Also, since it is made from places that can be stored in bikini and laundry, it will not be visible from outside at normal times.
It is necessary to follow our instructions for the success of your surgery.
It is important that surgical incisions are not exposed to excessive force, wear, or movement during the healing period. I will give you specific instructions to care for yourself.
Tummy tuck surgery procedure includes the following steps:
Medicines are given for your convenience during the surgical procedure. There are intravenous sedation or general anesthesia for options. During the inspections, we will determine what is suitable for you.
Complete Tummy tuck surgery requires a horizontal incision made in the area between the groin line and the navel.
The shape and length of the incision is proportional to the amount of excess skin. After excess abdominal skin is removed, the weakened abdominal muscles are repaired.
A second cut around the navel may be necessary to remove excess skin from the upper abdomen.
The upper abdominal skin is pulled down. Excess skin is cut and the remaining skin is sewn together. For the belly button, a hole is drilled again to the place we planned earlier. The belly button is thrown towards the surface and sewn in the position we planned.
Step 3 – Closing the Cuts
Seams, skin adhesives, tapes, or clips close skin incisions.
Step 4 – See Results
Tummy tuck surgery will result in a flatter, firmer abdominal contour proportional to your body type and weight.
The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal. You should compare the risks and potential complications of tummy tuck surgery with potential benefits in reaching your goals. You can only make this decision yourself.
You will be asked to sign approval forms to fully understand the risks and potential complications of tummy tuck surgery.

While preparing for liposuction surgery:
After the procedure, a medical corset is put on you or elastic bandages are wrapped around the applied area. Corsets or bandages are applied to reduce the edema of the application areas and to adapt to the new state of the skin tissue.
In addition, temporary small resistances can be placed in existing incisions under the skin to remove excess blood or fluid.
After the operation, you will be given specific instructions, which will include:
Take care to ask your surgeon questions about what you might encounter during your recovery period.
Edema, swelling and bruises may occur due to application. These will disappear completely in a few months. Your surgeon will convey information to reduce edema after liposuction.

The cost of liposuction may vary depending on the regions to be applied, as well as the surgeon who will perform the application and the type of procedure used.
Most health insurance does not cover liposuction or complications.
While determining liposuction fees;
Breast lift can revitalize your body with a younger and elevated breast profile. A woman’s breasts often change over time, and her youthful shape and firmness may disappear. These changes and loss of skin elasticity may include pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, aging, gravity and heredity. can be caused by:
Sometimes the areolar (dark area on the breast) grows over time, and breast lift surgery will reduce this.
Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round the upper part of your breast. If you want your breasts to look full, you should consider breast lift and breast augmentation surgery.
If you want smaller breasts, you should consider combining breast lift and breast reduction surgery.
You may be a candidate for breast lift surgery if:
Breast lift surgery is a procedure that should be preferred for quite personal reasons, and you should ask for it yourself.
During post-operative breast lift healing, bandages are applied to the wounds.
You will need to wear an elastic bandage or support bra to minimize edema and support your breasts as they heal.
Resistance is placed with a small temporary tube to drain excess fluid and blood.
You will be given specific instructions, including:
Be sure to ask the following specific questions about what awaits you for the surgery.
The results of your breast lift surgery can be seen immediately. Over time, edema after surgery will decrease and the cut lines will fade and become much less visible.
Immediately after the operation, your satisfaction with the new image of your breast will increase. As your breast shape and position continue to settle, the final results of breast lift surgery will appear in the next few months. The cut lines are permanent but will continue to fade over time. The results of breast lift surgery are long-lasting. Your breasts may continue to change over time due to aging and gravity. You can keep the new look longer if you pay attention to the following situations:
It is important that surgical incisions are not exposed to excessive force, swelling, wear, or movement during the healing period. I will give you specific instructions to care for yourself.
Breast lift surgery should be evaluated after breastfeeding is completed.
Changes in breasts during pregnancy can minimize or reverse the healing of breast lift.
Likewise, significant weight loss after breast surgery can adversely affect breast appearance.
Breast lift surgery is a surgical procedure with various incision patterns and techniques.
The technique that is suitable for you will be determined by:
Breast size and shape
The size and location of the areolas
Degree of sagging breast
Skin quality and flexibility as much as extra skin amount
There are three common incision examples:
a. Around Areola
b. Breast wrinkles around Areola and vertically downwards
c. Around the areola, vertically down from the nipple fold and horizontally across the nipple fold
Step 3 – Reshaping Your Nipples
After the incisions are made:
Step 4 – Closing the Cuts
After your breasts are reshaped and excess skin removed, the remaining skin is tightened when the incisions are closed.
Some cut lines caused by breast lift surgery are hidden in natural breast folds; Others, however, appear on the surface of the breast. The incision lines are permanent, but in most cases they continue to fade and decrease significantly over time.
Many women want the most scarring possible. However, we recommend incisions that best fit your anatomy.
Listen to your doctor and do not reduce your result by requesting an incision that is not suitable for you.
Stitches are made deep into the breast tissue to create and support newly shaped nozzles. Seams, skin adhesives and / or surgical tape can be used to cover the skin.
Step 5 – Results
Breast lift surgery results are immediately visible.
The decision to have plastic surgery is extremely personal. You should compare the risks and potential complications of breast lift surgery with potential benefits in reaching your goals. You can only make this decision yourself.
You will be asked to sign approval forms to fully understand the risks of breast lift surgery and potential complications.
Breast lift surgery risks include:
Some women may consider a breast implant in addition to breast lift.
An implant can provide improved upper breast fullness or décolleté. Implants can be placed at the same time or as a second procedure.
