Breast uplift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is an aesthetic surgery that aims to raise and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue.
To achieve the best outcomes, the breasts, nipples and areola are repositioned to create a more feminine, youthful appearance with long-lasting results during a breast lift in Turkey.
A breast uplift is meant for women who have sagging or drooping breasts and are dissatisfied with their appearance. This kind of breast surgery is not a substitute for breast augmentation or reduction, but it can be combined to achieve better results.
