Over the years, the female body endures a span of changes. Whether you have undergone one or more pregnancies, experienced fluctuations in weight, or menopause is approaching, it can make you feel like you don’t know which way is up. One troubling change can occur with your breasts, causing them to lose their perkiness and sag until you think they are headed to your toes. If you are dealing with drooping breasts, breast lift surgery could be the solution for you.
What is Involved During a Breast Lift Procedure?
A breast lift procedure is not the same thing as breast augmentation. Breast lift surgery will not change the size or shape of your breasts. Many women choose to have a combination of both procedures when they are considering cosmetic surgery. A breast lift procedure will lift your breasts into a more youthful position.
What to Expect During Breast Lift Surgery
Breast lift surgery is performed on an outpatient basis. Anesthesia will be provided to make you comfortable. Incisions will be made in your breasts, typically around the areola, and your surgeon will shape and lift your breast tissue. The areola will be raised as well and excess skin will be removed. Your incisions will be closed and you will be monitored closely for an hour or two before you are sent home.
Breast Lift Recovery
After breast lift surgery, someone should drive you home and stay with you for the next 24 hours. You will have bandaging on your incisions. Expect to wear a support bra while your breasts are healing to reduce swelling and discomfort. You will be provided with medication and instructions about restrictions in activity. You should not plan on doing any strenuous exercise or lifting for at least two weeks after your procedure. A follow-up visit will be scheduled to check your progress in healing and discuss your results.
