Breast Lift Results
You can expect to feel more comfortable with the shape and position of your breasts, and you’ll see the beautiful, natural results immediately after the surgery. Many women say their breast lift procedure has boosted their confidence and made it easier (and more fun) to shop for clothes. It’s important to remember, however, that no surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity. Variables that may also affect the procedure – and your results – include your age, the size and shape of your breasts, and the condition of your skin.
Preparing for a Breast Lift
Your plastic surgeon will provide detailed instructions to ensure that you are properly prepared for the surgery and the recovery period. You will also receive guidelines on what to eat and drink and whether you need to avoid certain medications or supplements before and after your procedure.
What to expect during a breast lift?
First, you will have a consultation with one of our experienced, board-certified plastic surgeons to determine whether you are a good candidate for a breast lift and to discuss your expectations and options.
There are a number of different techniques for breast lift surgery. All of them involve tightening the skin of the breast and lifting the nipple and areola. Your surgeon will discuss where the scars would need to be placed to achieve this.
Breast Lift Recovery
The surgery is performed under general anaesthesia and you can go home the same day. You’ll experience some post-surgical discomfort, swelling, and bruising for about two weeks, which can be minimized with medication, and you should be able to return to work after a few days. You will also be able to wear a normal bra after the procedure. You should, however, avoid sleeping on your stomach and lifting heavy objects for at least two weeks.
