Breast Lift with Round Implants Recovery Time
The recovery time for a breast lift with round implants varies depending on the individual and the extent of the surgery. However, most patients can return to work and normal activities within two weeks of the surgery. The surgeon will provide specific instructions for post-operative care, including how to care for the incision site and when to resume physical activity.

How Breast Lift Surgery in Turkey is Performed?
Breast lift with round implants in Turkey is performed under general anesthesia and takes about two to three hours to complete. The surgeon will make an incision on the breast, lift and reshape the breast tissue, and insert the implant. The incision is then closed with sutures or surgical tape.
Consultation for Breast Lift with Round Implants
Your breast lift with round implants process begins with an online consultation. In this stage, our specialists listen to your complaints and your expectations, and they inform you about whether you need a breast lift with round implants or any other/additional procedure. It is important to share all your medical information and visual data you have that may be useful at this stage.
Planning Your Trip and Choosing the Clinic
At this second stage, we will offer a list of clinics or surgeons according to the criteria you provide us. You will examine all of them and then select one of them. Depending on your choice, we start planning your trip and the entire process.
Final Consultation with Your Surgeon
When you arrive at the clinic, you will have a consultation with your surgeon. The surgeon will ask you some questions to try to understand your expectations and concerns and also make you understand what you should expect from your surgery and the potential risks or complications of the procedure.
Your surgeon and the clinic will explain the whole breast lift with round implants process clearly and try to simulate it as much as possible, for you to feel well-prepared.
Before the breast lift with round implants procedure begins, your surgeon will conduct physical and blood tests to make sure that you are in acceptable health status for the process. If you have any condition to be treated before the breast lift with a round implant process, your surgeon will try to eliminate it first.
It is a procedure that is performed under general anesthesia and lasts approximately 2-3 hours depending on the characteristics of the breasts. After breast measurements, implant selection is determined, and the appropriate breast lift technique will be decided based on the extent of flaccid breast skin.
For severe ptosis of the breast (sagging breasts), an "anchor" incision is made. This incision surrounds the perimeter of the areola, extends to the breast crease, and continues horizontally along the breast crease. For moderate sagging breasts, a lollipop incision is made around the perimeter of the areola and extends to the breast crease only.
For slightly sagging breasts, a “donut” or circumareolar incision is made around the perimeter of the areola only. Surgeons choose the best option to consider to minimize scarring. For this reason, the procedure typically begins with the placement of the round implant through a small incision.
This fills the loose skin of the breast and reduces the amount of sagging skin as part of the breast lift. By doing this, the extent of your scar is minimized rather than committing to a large breast lift incision initially followed by implant placement. The implants are generally placed in a dual submuscular plane.
Things You Should Consider After Breast Lift with Round Implants Surgery
- After the surgery, you can expect pain, swelling, and bruising of the breasts. It is also normal for some discharge or water-blood to come out of the wounds in the first 48 hours as it is a fresh wound.
- Micropores or bandages over the incisions should be left until the surgeon removes them. The patient can bathe normally, and after the shower dry the micropores with the hairdryer in cold.
- The postoperative bra should be worn for 4 weeks day and night. It should only be removed during the shower or to wash.
- Apply local cold on breasts for 3 days.
- You may need someone to help you in the shower for the first 48 hours after surgery.
- Do not drive a car in 1 week
- Do not do exertion activities, lift heavy objects or go to the gym for 4 weeks. Remember, if it hurts don't do it.
- Avoid sexual activities for 3 to 4 weeks. Again, very carefully, and if it hurts do not.
- Avoid sleeping on your stomach until the pain subsides.
- Do not expose yourself to the sun for 1 month
- No swimming pool or sea for 1 month
- The breasts may appear somewhat asymmetrical or "high" after surgery due to inflammation. When the inflammation subsides with the days, the breasts will look more symmetrical and natural.
- The patient can feel the sensation of liquid or air inside the breasts. They may also feel bumps or pulls caused by the recovery of damaged nerves. These symptoms are normal and will disappear in the first weeks after surgery.
- For patients predisposed to stretch marks, lubrication of the breast skin is recommended before and after surgery.
What’s The Difference Between Round And Teardrop Implants?
Round implants are symmetrical and can provide more volume to the upper part of the breast. They are often used for women who want a fuller look to their breasts. Teardrop implants, also known as anatomical implants, are shaped like teardrop and are designed to mimic the natural shape of the breast. They are often used for women who want a more natural-looking breast augmentation.
Breast Lift Surgery Results
The results of breast lift with round implants in Turkey are immediate, but the final results may take several months to fully develop. The breasts will be swollen and bruised for several weeks after the surgery, but the swelling will gradually subside, and the breasts will settle into their new shape.
Multiple studies report patients are highly satisfied with breast augmentation with implants.
