Recovering from a Breast Lift

Most breast lift patients go home on the day of their procedure.

Discomfort after this procedure lasts an average of 3 to 7 days. Some patients will require drains for 2 to 5 days when implants are also being inserted at the same time.

Breast lift patients should begin walking and stretching on the day of the procedure. Patients should avoid exercise for 4 to 6 weeks, and upper chest exercises for 12 weeks. Most women can return to desk work after 7 to 14 days.

Breast lift patients wear a compression garment for 2 days, followed by a comfortable sports bra. Patients should avoid wearing push-up and underwire bras for 6 to 8 weeks.

Potential Risks and Complications

Every procedure involves inherent risks. Although serious complications are extremely rare, Dr. DuPéré educates every breast lift patient about potential risks.

Those risks can include scarring, opening of the wound, discomfort for several days, bruising around the surgical sites, loss of sensation over the chest skin and, rarely, of the nipples, possible inability to breastfeed, temporary superficial vein inflammation, asymmetry, fluid accumulation (seroma and hematomas), infection, bleeding, nerve and vessel injury, skin necrosis, deep venous thrombosis (clotting), risks related to implants, and general anesthesia-related issues.
