Saggy breast problem
Breast sagging is one of many natural body changes that women experience as they age. The breasts are made up of fat and ligaments, but lack muscle tissue, so their sagging is a natural result.
Aging is the most common cause of sagging breast problems. As a woman ages, the ligaments that make up the breast tissue are stretched and lose their elasticity. As a result, the underlying tissue and fat support system decreases, eliminating breast fullness. These changes can accelerate during menopause.
In women with large breasts, breast sagging is very common due to the pulling force of gravity that lasts for years. Breasts that grow after pregnancy may sag after breast feeding.
In women who smoke, carcinogenic substances eliminate the elastices that provide the elasticity of the skin and sagging accelerates. Weight fluctuations, excessive sun exposure and not supporting the breasts using the right bra can also cause sagging. Whatever the reason is, sagging breasts can lead to despondency and lack of confidence in women. Therefore, it is quite normal for them to apply for breast lift surgery.

If the volume of the breast tissue is sufficient, the breast is positioned correctly after the necessary shape is given and the process is completed.

Breast lift operation usually takes 2-3 hours and one-day stay in hospital after surgery is sufficient.
