Am I a suitable candidate for a breast lift?
If you are bothered by breasts that have lost their shape and firmness due to factors such as aging, pregnancy, weight fluctuations, or genetics, you may be a suitable candidate for a breast lift. Good candidates are in good overall health, have realistic expectations about the outcome, and understand that a breast lift does not significantly change the size of the breasts. Consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon is crucial to assess your individual case and determine if a breast lift is the right option for you.
Will a breast lift increase the size of my breasts?
A breast lift primarily addresses sagging and reshapes the breasts for a more lifted appearance. While some patients may experience a minor increase in breast volume due to the tightening and repositioning of the breast tissue, a breast lift alone does not significantly change the size or fullness of the breasts. If you desire both a lift and an increase in breast size, a breast lift can be combined with breast augmentation using implants to achieve your desired outcome.
What is the recovery process like after a breast lift?
After a breast lift, you may experience temporary swelling, bruising, and discomfort. You will be required to wear a supportive bra or surgical garment to aid in healing and provide support to the newly lifted breasts. It is important to follow your surgeon's post-operative instructions, including avoiding strenuous activities, heavy lifting, and sleeping on your stomach or side for a specified period. Most patients can return to work within a week or two, depending on their job's physical demands. Full recovery and the final results may take several months as the breasts settle into their new position and the incision lines fade.
