After giving birth to children or breastfeeding, many women notice that their breasts have lost their quality in terms of size, shape, and feeling. As skin loses its elasticity, breasts tend to lose their shape and firmness and began to loosen. All these injuries may also occur over time even without pregnancy due to gravity and weight gain and weight loss. Breast lift or mastopexy is an operation to reform and lift loose breasts, without changing the overall volume of the breasts.
Unlike mastopexy, the main purpose of breast augmentation or reduction is to change breast size or volume. However, in some cases, especially when the breasts are slightly loosed, lifting and appropriate tightness is obtained only through breast augmentation surgery. In this case, you should know that an unacceptable and unexpected increase may occur in breast size, because breast implants have a given volume. In other circumstances, when both breast lifting and augmentation are desired, it is better to perform both procedures simultaneously.
It is wise to postpone breast lifting after giving birth to children and breastfeeding. Although mastopexy is not usually an obstacle for future pregnancies, it may affect breastfeeding. It is important to know that breast lift does not prevent re-loosening of breasts, especially after pregnancy and breastfeeding and the breasts may become loose and more sagged again. Weight loss after surgery leads to breast sagging.
