Breast Lift Recovery Calls for Quality Preparation and Aftercare

As you age, parts of your body can alter in shape and composition. Changes are even more likely to occur in your breasts if you’ve lost a significant amount of weight resulting from pregnancy or breastfeeding. One way to improve the shape and appearance of your breasts without the use of breast implants is to have your cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mitchell Kaye, perform a breast lift in Hopkinsville, Kentucky.

The procedure is designed to raise the height of your breasts by removing excess skin, which causes a general tightening of your natural breast tissue. This renews youthful support while improving the overall shape of each breast. Quality preparation and aftercare are essential for a complication-free recovery process.

It’s best to take at least a full week off from work to let your body focus its resources on healing. Most breast lifts are performed on an outpatient basis and require deep sedation. You will need to arrange to have someone drive you home after the treatment. You will also need to avoid strenuous activities while the skin heals. So, it’s a good idea to have someone on hand to help you out.

You will need to abstain from eating or drinking after midnight the evening before the procedure. It’s also a good idea to wear loose-fitting clothes on the day of surgery. This will make redressing afterward easier. We will also provide you with a special postoperative bra.

Your surgeon might insert a small, plastic drainage tube under your skin to help drain some normal minor postoperative bleeding. They will explain to you how to properly care for it and any stitches, bandages, or dressings.

If you are interested in a breast lift and you have preparation and aftercare questions, you should call 866.234.0470 to schedule a consultation at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Kentucky.
