Breast Lift Recovery Tips
The most important thing to remember when planning your breast lift recovery is to follow your surgeon's instructions to the letter. These instructions are often crucial to a healthy outcome, and will be based on extensive experience and your personal health needs.
Personally Researching the Procedure May Improve Results
The American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery recommends a compression garment or soft bra be worn immediately after the breast lift procedure. Other supportive garments may be recommended for up to six weeks following the mastopexy.
As the breast lift does not involve muscle tissue, women may often return to work or normal activities in a few days to a week. More intense activity should be postponed for around six weeks.
One of the best ways to prepare for a successful breast lift recovery is to speak with other women who have had the procedure, either in person or online. Their experiences may prove invaluable in determining what things will work best for you and your body. Having a supportive recovery plan for your time recovering at home is absolutely crucial for the best possible results.
Set up as much support as you can muster at home, having your family or friends help you with little things for the first few days. By avoiding excess strain on your body and allowing yourself to rest, you can help to improve the healing process, leading to a better outward appearance and a healthier body. Do your own research about what recovery techniques and plans will work best for your schedule and lifestyle, so you can create a successful recovery approach.
