The breast shape and size is effected by the number of pregnancies, breast-feeding and aging. During these events the breast tissue, which includes ligaments, skin, fat and breast gland stretch and sag. The breast tissue looses its support and tends to “sag” and “droop”. This causes more flattening on the upper aspect of the breast with movement of the breast tissue and nipples to a more un-natural and aesthetically lower location.
Before breast lift surgery
Prior to surgery, a medical history is taken in order to evaluate the general health of the patient. A careful examination is also conducted. A mammogram may be required pre-operatively. The physician and the patient discuss the type of anesthesia, the procedure, scar location, scar size, possible risks and complications. Pre-operative instructions may include the elimination of certain drugs and smoking habits.
After breast lift surgery
There are going to be some restriction on the amount and the types of physical activities you may participate for the first 2-3 weeks. There may be a need for special bra to be worn for 2-6 weeks after the surgery to support the breast tissue. There is some discomfort associated with breast lift surgery. You may not be allowed to participate in sports especially contact sports for about 4-6 weeks. There may be some swelling and bruising after surgery, which may last for about 7-10 days.
