Over time, with the effect of gravity, the gland and fat tissue that make up the structure of the breast begins to sag. Especially after childbirth, the growth of the breast and then shrinking back, especially the emptying of the upper poles, or weight gain and loss increase the rate of breast sagging. Breast sagging is defined as ptosis.

Roughly, when a person looks in the mirror, if the breast tissue is below the bra line, called the inframammary fold, this indicates a ptosis breast. The normal location of the nipple should be 18 to 19 centimeters from the clavicular notch to the nipple, called the nipple aerola complex. When planning, the nipple is tried to be pulled back to the 18-19 range with the technique determined according to the degree of sagging.

There are multiple methods of breast lift. Depending on the degree of ptosis, lollipop scar technique, inverted T technique, donut scar technique or half-moon technique are preferred. While the donut or half-moon technique is preferred by entering only the nipple in patients with mild breast ptosis, the lollipop scar or inverted T technique with scars that continue under the breast is applied in more advanced ptosis.

Breast lift surgery is performed under general anesthesia. Before the operation, preop breast drawings are made, which are as important as the operation in technical terms. The technique to be used in breast lift is determined according to the degree of ptosis. After the drawings suitable for these techniques, the patient is taken to surgery. Breast lift is a more practical and faster intervention compared to many surgical interventions. In general, the recovery period is short and the recovery process is comfortable.
