Every step of a breast lift is important, but the one for which you have the biggest impact is your recovery. Breast lifts are a sophisticated cosmetic procedure that surgically enhances the look and feel of your breasts. The way you handle your recovery and how closely you follow instructions outlined for you are big parts of ensuring that your final results are successful.
After your breast lift, the surgeon will remove bandages and any attached drainage tubes within the first few days. A board-certified, experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Andrew Lyos will inspect your results and check the nipple’s color and blood supply. You may be prescribed medication for pain, and by the second or third week, your stitches will be removed. It is important that you abstain from heavy lifting of any kind and take care to avoid impacts to your chest.
If there are any potential side effects or problems, report them immediately.
