If you are dissatisfied with your sagging breasts, a breast lift can address the problem for you. However, if you’re a little apprehensive about surgery and want to ensure that you have a healthy experience, it’s important to ask your plastic surgeon – How can I prepare for my breast lift?
Breast lift surgery
A breast lift or mastopexy is surgery that is done to lift droopy breasts, and improve their shape and firmness. The noticeable sagging of the breasts is often due to factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, and the natural passage of time, but breast lift surgery can reverse the descent. During the operation the surgeon will cut away the excess skin, and tighten the remaining skin.
How can I prepare for my breast lift?
As the day of your breast lift approaches, you need to ensure that you make the necessary preparations for surgery. The tips below will help you to have a better surgical experience.
Before surgery doctors generally advise patients to stop taking certain medications that may cause bleeding.
It’s also a good idea to eat healthy and get regular exercise in the weeks ahead of surgery. You’re likely to do better throughout the process and recover faster,if you are healthy.
Also, if you normally smoke or consume alcohol, you will have to completely cut these out in the weeks before surgery. These practices can increase bruising and swelling and delay healing.
In addition to these general guidelines, your plastic surgeon will give you specific pre-operative instructions to follow.
