Quality Preparation and Aftercare Is Essential for a Fast Recovery After a Breast Lift

Posted .

Breast lifts continue to grow in popularity each year for women who would like to restore the youthful appearance of their breasts without the use of artificial breast implants. Here at Artistic Contours our cosmetic surgeons can perform a breast lift in a single outpatient surgery.
The treatment involves removing a small amount of skin and adapting other tissues to tighten and raise your breasts. If you would like, Dr. Mohammad Banki and his associates can also alter the size, shape, and position of your areola during the breast lift.
Quality preparation and aftercare are important to a quick recovery after the breast lift. This calls for significant rest. Ideally, you should try to take at least a full week off from work as well as any other strenuous activities.
At your initial consultation with Dr. Mohammad Banki be sure to let him know about any medical conditions or medications that might increase your bleeding risk. You might also need to stop taking aspirin or certain anti-inflammatory medications before and after the breast lift.
If this is related to a prescription medication you should consult with your primary physician.
You will need to refrain from eating or drinking after midnight during the evening before the breast lift. Wearing loose fitting clothes on the day of the breast augmentation will help make it easier to move and get dressed afterward.
Dr. Mohammad Banki can typically perform a breast augmentation in a single outpatient appointment, where you will need to be fully sedated. Afterward, you will need to have a friend or family member drive you home. It would also be beneficial to have someone at home to lend a hand for a few days while you focus on resting.
Dr. Mohammad Banki might insert a small plastic drainage tube under your skin to help release any minor postoperative bleeding. If so, he will explain to you how to properly care for it and any stitches, bandages, or dressings.
