Getting ready for the Breast Lift Operation

Before the operation we will ask you to bring a breast ultrasound, if you can’t do it before your arrival to Istanbul please let us know, this way we will fix a breast ultrasound appointment here. We will ask you to not to take vitamins or herbal medication in the last month before the operation. Other information regarding the medication usage will be given you by your health consultant. Since after the operation we will ask you not to carry heavy loads we will ask you not to travel with a heavy luggage. After breast operation it is more comfortable to wear clothes from buttons or zippers from the front side.

Breast Lift Operation

The operation consists in five phases. The beginning phase is the anesthesia, your operation will be performed in general anesthesia. Then the second phase is the incision, in this operation there will be an incision around the areola, vertically down the areola and a horizontal incision in the breast fold. This way doctor will reshape the breast and reposition the areola. The next step is to close the incision. This leads us to the final phase which is seeing the results. Breast lift is an operation that gives the results immediately.
