Breast Lift Surgery in Turkey


Breast uplift surgery (also known as a breast lift or a mastopexy) is a surgical procedure to reshape and lift the breasts. This is done by removing excess skin, repositioning the nipple and sometimes using a breast implant to restore volume back to the shape of the breast.

If you feel insecure about the size and shape of your breasts, or you’re worried that your breasts are dropping or sagging with age, then breast uplift surgery may help you to restore your breast shape and gain your confidence back.

How to prepare for Breast Lift Surgery?


Before Breast Lift Surgery you will need to schedule a mammogram with your surgeon and give authorization for them to check your medical history so they can assess your eligibility.

It is important to disclose any prescribed medication and use of substances during the consultation as well as lifestyle habits that can affect your eating and exercise routines leading up to the surgery.

The surgeon may suggest you avoid the following before breast lift surgery.

What is the process of Breast Lift Surgery?

Breast uplift surgery usually takes 2-3 hours to complete and is done under general anaesthetic. Depending on the technique, the most common type of uplift will start by the surgeon making a cut around the areola and under the breast.

Then the surgeon will remove skin from around the area around your nipples and/or from under your breasts and re-shape your breasts. Often they’ll reposition your nipples, reducing the size of your areola.

If you’re having a breast enlargement at the same time, your surgeon will insert a breast implant to help give fullness to the upper part of your breast. The surgeon will place the implant directly under your breast tissue or behind your chest muscle. If you’re having a breast reduction at the same time they’ll remove excess tissue.

When the operation is finished, the surgeon will close the cuts with stitches or skin-closure strips. They may wrap your breasts in a supportive dressing or use tape for support.

Breast Lift Costs in Turkey

The cost for Breast Lift Surgery in Turkey is around £1800 which includes all medical fees, VIP transfers from the hotel to the clinic, and hotel accommodation in Turkey. Comparing this to £7,000 – £10,000  in the UK, there is a huge amount to be saved when travelling to Turkey for this procedure.

Aside from excellent pricing, Turkey is renowned for having some of the best aesthetic surgeons and clinics in the world, which makes it the perfect choice for medical tourism.

When choosing a clinic for your breast lift surgery it is important to do thorough research and check the portfolio of the surgeon, expertise, and credentials. The Turkish Ministry of Health ensures surgeons and clinics have the appropriate licences, so make sure the hospital is registered with them and can provide proof of liability insurance.

Recovery from a breast lift procedure

After breast uplift surgery, you’ll need to rest until the anaesthetic has worn off. You’ll be offered pain relief to help with any discomfort you have. You may have thin tubes running out from the wound to drain excess fluid into a bag or bottle. These will be removed when the fluid or blood has stopped draining, usually before you go home.

You’ll probably be able to do light activities after 2 weeks and be back to your normal activities by 6 weeks. Don’t lift anything heavy for several weeks. You’ll be prescribed painkillers by your surgeon to help with any discomfort.

It’s best to wear a bra with no underwiring for a few weeks after the operation, and in some cases a firm dressing or support bra. The surgeon will probably recommend that you wear a firm dressing or support bra for a few weeks while you heal. This will help to stop the weight of your breasts pulling on your healing wounds. A sports bra may be suitable, but you should seek advice from the surgeon.

    Women who have gone through multiple pregnancies, lost the appearance and shape of their breasts, or are worried that their breasts are dropping or sagging with age could be good candidates for breast uplift surgery.

    If a breast lift is done for aesthetic reasons then this cannot be done on the NHS. Hence why many people go privately and look for cost effective options, such as Turkey.

    Turkey can be a good option if you are willing to travel and want to save costs on having surgery done privately. Although Turkey is cheap, this is not an indicator of low quality, as there are many skilled plastic surgeons with international accredications.
