Breast augmentation is the number one cosmetic surgical procedure performed in the United States every year, however breast lift surgery is growing in popularity. This is because many women are seeking natural-looking results and are not interested in breast implants. While size is not increased, a breast lift can improve the shape and restore fullness to the breasts. This will help give you a tighter and more youthful silhouette.
During a breast lift incisions are made inside the armpit or around the areola of the breast. The skin will then be tightened and excess skin removed and closed with sutures. Recovery is somewhat extensive, in that your chest will be wrapped for several days and drains placed under your skin to prevent a build up of fluid.
You should also expect to experience some swelling, moderate pain and even bruising of your breasts for about a week after the procedure. Most patients are able to resume work and other activities within a few days. However it may be several weeks before you are fully healed.
Breast lift surgery can give you the figure you’ve been missing, but it’s important to understand that a breast lift will not stop the natural process of aging. However a majority of patients are thrilled with their results.
