RECOVERY AFTER SURGERY

After your breast lift procedure, dressing or bandages may be applied to your incisions and you will need to wear an elastic bandage or support bra to minimize swelling and support your breast as they heal.  A Small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain excess fluid or blood that may collect
You will be given specific instructions that may include how to care for the surgical site and drains, medications to apply or take orally to aid healing and reduce the potential for infection, specific concerns to look for at the surgical site or in your general health and when to follow up with your surgeon

Be sure to ask your plastic surgeon specific questions about what you can expect during your individual recovery period.
Where will I be taken after my surgery is complete?
What medication will I be given or prescribed after surgery?
Will I have dressings/bandages after surgery?
When will they be removed?
Are stitches removed? When?
When can I resume normal activity and exercise?
When do I return for follow-up care?

RESULTS
The results of your breast lift surgery are immediately visible. Overtime, post surgical swelling will resolve and incision lines will fade. Satisfaction with your new image should continue to grow as you recover from the surgery. The final results of your breast lifts will appear over the next few months as breast shape and position continue to settle. Incision lines are permanent but will continue to fade over time

The results of your breast lift surgery will be long-lasting. Over time, your breasts can continue to change due to aging and gravity. You’ll be able to retain your new look longer if you:
Maintain your weight
Keep a healthy lifestyle

SPECIAL NOTE:
Breast surgery should be entertained after child bearing is completed. Changes that occur in breast during pregnancy can minimize or reverse the improvement a breast lift provides. Likewise, significant weight loss after breast surgery can negatively impact breast appearance.
Following your physician’s instructions is essential to the success of your surgery. It is important that the surgical incisions are not subjected to excessive force, swelling, abrasion, or motion during the time of healing. Your doctor will give you specific instructions on how to care for yourself
