Breast Lift Recovery Guide and Tips

Your Breast Lift Recovery (mastopexy or mastopexy surgery) is based on several factors, including your personal pain threshold and whether or not your breast lift was done as a stand-alone procedure. Your breast lift recovery may be more involved, for example, if you had other plastic surgery procedures such as augmentation with breast implants, breast lift with augmentation or breast reduction performed at the same time as your breast lift. Your surgeon should go over the specific details of your breast lift surgery and recovery with you during your consultation visit and your preoperative appointments.

A Breast Lift is a medical procedure that lifts and reshapes breasts that have lost their shape and firmness as the result of aging, pregnancy, or nursing

There are many steps you can take both pre- and post-op to help manage your recovery and minimise your breast lift risks. Take some time to familiarise yourself with them and discuss them with your surgeon before surgery.

Incision Care During Your Breast Lift Recovery

Dressings or bandages will be applied to your breast lift incisions. Keeping these incisions dry until they have closed is important.

You will need to see your surgeon a few days after your breast lift to change your surgical dressings and possibly remove any stitches. If drains — small, thin tubes that collect any excess blood or fluid — were used, your surgeon will remove them during this same visit.

You will also likely be told to wear a compression garment after your breast lift. During your first postoperative visit, your surgeon will instruct you on when to start wearing a soft, supportive bra instead of the compression garment.

Swelling and Bruising

In general, expect swollen and bruised breasts after your surgery.

You may become swollen for up to three to four months. What helps? A compression garment or a support bra will be recommended for you to wear, as it can reduce swelling and help your breasts during your breast lift recovery. If your breast swelling lingers, consider increasing your fluid intake, consuming less salt and engaging in regular exercise such as walking.

Ask your surgeon what he or she recommends helping minimise bruising. Some homeopathic products such as Arnica montana or bromelain may help reduce both swelling and bruising. Gently applying warm compresses to your breasts may also be helpful. Read our post on supplement to take pre-post surgery to speed up recovery

Does It Hurt?

Most women do report some initial discomfort after breast lift surgery. Your surgeon can prescribe painkillers to help relieve any pain you may feel. Do not take over-the-counter non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen or naproxen after surgery as these drugs increase bleeding risk. You may also experience a temporary loss of sensation in your breasts.

Activity Restrictions During Breast Lift Recovery

Walk around as soon as possible after your breast lift. Early ambulation helps reduce the risk of developing blood clots. That said, do not bend or lift any heavy objects (including your children or pets!) until your doctor tells you it is safe to do so.

You can usually return to work within a week, but this may take longer if you have a physically-demanding job. Most women can resume all normal activities within a few weeks after breast lift surgery, including exercise.

Personal Hygiene

Sponge baths may be necessary until your incisions have closed, and your stitches removed. These days the surgeons will apply waterproof bandages, allowing you to shower as normal. You may not be able to wash your hair for a while because you won’t be permitted to raise your hands above your head. If you must wash your hair, ask for assistance.

Scar Care

Breast lift surgery will involve scars. The scar patterns vary based on the type of breast lift surgery that you choose.

Individual scar-minimizing products may help scars fade. These include silicone sheeting, topical silicone gels and creams and surgical tape. If you have a history of developing problematic scars, discuss these options with your surgeon in advance. It usually takes about six months for your breast lift scars to fade.

Sleeping Tips for Recovery

During your initial breast lift recovery, sleeping may be challenging. Try propping up your back and head with two or three fluffy pillows, or a specially-designed wedge-shaped pillow available at most medical supply stores. This elevation of your upper body can help reduce swelling and pain.

Additionally, a pillow placed under your knees can prevent you from rolling over onto your chest during the night. Some women put pillows alongside them to create a recovery “nest” of sorts for the same reason.

Breast Lift Aftercare Instructions

An important aspect of your breast lift recovery is caring for your healing breasts. Your surgeon should give you specific instructions on what topical medications to apply to your breasts and the oral medications you can take, such as analgesics and antibiotics, to reduce your risk of postsurgical pain and infection.

It is important to monitor your temperature and take your prescribed antibiotics as directed throughout your breast lift recovery. Taking your temperature can help identify an infection in its earliest stages, should one occur.

Your surgeon will also discuss the step-down plan for supportive garments with you. He or she will also let you know when you can start wearing regular and underwire bras again. Jumping the gun on this could result in complications.

Make sure you are clear about everything that is expected of you during your breast lift recovery. Following your surgeon’s instructions carefully will help minimise your risk of complications.

Breast Lift Recovery: What to Have on Hand

Planning ahead for your breast lift recovery can make life much simpler. Since your physical activities will be restricted during recovery, it’s a good time to pamper yourself and catch up on things you haven’t had a chance to enjoy lately.

Stockpile movies or pre-recorded programs you’ve meant to watch, or novels and magazines that have been piling up; all will keep your mind occupied as your body heals. A fully-charged iPod, mobile phone, and laptop can also help you pass time and stay connected during your breast lift recovery.

Recovery can be a challenging time both physically and emotionally. Consider asking friends or family members to call or drop by, but keep in mind that it may be best to schedule these visits several days or more after your surgery. This will give you time to get past the lingering effects of the anesthesia you received and closer to feeling normal again.

Before Surgery..

Before surgery, stock your refrigerator with healthy recovery foods, including pre-made meals, fresh fruits and vegetables, and lots of caffeine-free beverages and water. It’s best to avoid processed foods, which are often high in sodium that can contribute to fluid retention and swelling. Staying well hydrated will not only help your body heal, but it will also flush out residual anesthesia and medications from your system.

As you heal, your arms will have a limited range of motion, so store all the supplies you’ll need during recovery where they’re readily available (that is to say, at counter level, not in overhead or very low cabinets). Remember: no heavy lifting or high reaching until your surgeon clears you!

Finally, be sure to fill any prescriptions from your surgeon beforehand, so they are waiting for you after your surgery. A little forethought can go a long way toward making your breast lift recovery as smooth as possible.

Although our hospitals are in constant pursuit of medical excellence, and our complication rate is very low, we know that every procedure no matter where it is performed has some risk. That is why our group has kicked off the complication and specific medical tourism benefits to further secure our clients’ peace of mind and cope with any unexpected post-procedure situations in the most professional and caring manner. It is also noteworthy that the collaboration with CAP, which is a leading specialty lines insurance broker, reflects our hospital group’s commitment to international standards of excellence in healthcare, as evidenced by accreditation from JCI International, USA. And on our hospitals’ part, we highly value total accountability and strive to optimize patients’ experience in a sustainable and long-term manner, which is true to our “Continuum of Care” philosophy.”

The move will fill a gap in international patients’ healthcare by insuring them against arising medical complications up to 350,000 Baht (Terms & Conditions apply). The plan shall be in force over a period of 90 days from the date of a medical procedure. There is additional expense coverage up to 350,000 Baht for travel and accommodations (should the insured needs to travel back for a revision or corrective procedure). The benefits will automatically apply to any medical tourist or expatriate aged – up to 70 years, who undergoes an elective procedure worth more than 50,000 Baht (based on one single invoice/receipt). Non-elective procedures (e.g. emergency, trauma, accidents and critical care) are excluded. It is remarkable that these benefits are being including for all procedures’ within the package

prices – no surcharge or extra expense on the part of the patients. Medical tourism, as led by Phuket Plastic Surgery Institute (PPSI) and Bangkok-Phuket Dental Center, is expected to benefit greatly from this innovative project. The clients will walk away not only with shining confidence but also with total peace of mind back home.  While in Thailand or once home, they can receive prompt assistance and smooth claims processing anywhere and anytime through 24-hours contact center service.

“As the medical tourism industry grows, healthcare providers are competing for ways to become a premier destination. BDMS Southern Group has determined what matters to the international patients, not only by having excellent medical staff and outcomes but by attending to every patient with the utmost hospitality care and concern. This move will definitely exceed patients’ expectations and provide a level of service that is unsurpassed in the medical tourism industry.  Exciting extra services are also included as part of the benefits program, such as; Electronic Medical Record Storage and Transport Platform, 24/7 Travel Alert and Crisis Management Services,” added Tracy Simons, President of Custom Assurance Placements.
