This procedure is usually best known amongst most women as a serious self-esteem and confidence booster. When performed skillfully, it gives a vibrant and youthful appearance to the breast.

There are various steps that are usually taken during the procedure of the central pedicle breast lift as the procedure takes around 3 hours to complete. The steps within the procedure will be laid out below:

The Consultation With Your Surgeon

Before the surgery, you would have enquired online about what the whole procedure entails. During the last consultation is where you will then tell the surgeon your medical record which will include if you have any allergies or hereditary diseases. 

You will also go through some tests to verify if you are in the right state to continue with the procedure. At this point, the surgeon will make some markings. 

Administering Local Anesthesia

If the results of the tests come satisfactory, the surgeon will then administer local anesthesia which will help numb the pain from any incisions made. 

The Procedure

At this stage, the surgeon will make an incision around the small circular area, in particular the ring of pigmented skin surrounding a nipple. This cut will extend down to the front of the breast, from the bottom of the areola to the crease, and in some cases, it may extend along the sides of the areola depending on the surgeon’s discretion.

After the incisions have been made, the surgeon will then lift and reshape the breasts and align them to the correct position according to the new shape of choosing.

To conclude the process, the surgeon will close your incisions with stitches, sutures, skin grafts, or surgical tape.

What To Expect After Central Pedicle Breast Lift?

Immediately after the surgery., they will be covered by a special gauze and given support through a surgical bra. Excess blood and fluids are then drained out from the incisions.

There is likely to be some swelling and bruising which may take about 14 days after the breast lift surgery to disappear. You are likely to feel some pain around the incisions made and you will likely experience numbness around that area lasting for about 6 weeks. 

Try avoiding doing a lot of exercises like stretching, bending, or even any form of lifting. Avoid laying on your front as this may inflict pain.

Try to keep on your surgical support bra for about 24 hours three or four days a week. You can start wearing a soft bra for a month. In some instances, the surgeon may recommend you use silicone tape or gel to enhance the healing process.

Avoid the sun as you heal. And Try controlling your weight to maximize getting the best and longest-lasting results post-surgery.

    Ana was extremely helpful, friendly and made planning my trip so much easier. I don't know what I would have done without her! Going overseas to a country you've never been to before to get plastic surgery can be scary, having Ana made it a lot less scary knowing you have somebody there that's on your team to help you.

    From start to finish my experience with Flymedi was exceptional. The coordinator, Abud worked hard at finding the right surgeon for me. He was constantly in contact while I was away to ensure everything went smoothly. I honestly could not be happier with the company. Dr Ozge has done an exceptional job too. Thank you Abud for making me feel confident again!

    I highly recommended Mustafa was good assistance all the way through. From airport, hotel, and hospital. The surgeon who conduct the operation did a great job. I was hesitant at first and was scared what would be the result but waking up after the surgery I was surprised by his professionalism. As well as Mustafa was being present every time I needed him out anytime I could contacted him. He never fails. Thanks to Y'ALL guys.
