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.

How do I know if I need a Breast Lift?

breast lift thailand

Have you thought about improving the appearance of your breasts? Do you wonder if you need a breast lift? How about a breast augmentation? Or do you need both procedures? How do you know which type of breast-contouring surgery you need? Wow that a lot of questions to get answered huh!

It all depends on whether or not your breast skin needs tightening, if your nipple and areola need lifting, and if you want your breasts to stick out further from your chest.

Some women joke about being able to tuck their breasts into their pants! Most of the time, it is not quite that obvious. Women are the biggest critics of their bodies. You know every fluctuation in your weight. You know when you’ve lost even a little bit of volume from your breasts with weight loss or when your cup size increases with a little weight gain.

And you certainly know when your breasts have lost the perkiness of your teen years. You may not know the medical terminology, but you know that something about your breasts just doesn’t look the same.

There are certain measurements that plastic surgeons use to determine if you need a breast lift, a breast augmentation or a combination of both. Don’t worry – you don’t have to have a medical degree and plastic-surgery training to do these measurements. If you know how to use a tape measure, you can do these measurements, too!

Measurement Instructions

Do you need a Breast Lift

See if you need a Breast Lift

First, you will need to locate your sternal notch. The sternal notch is a groove at the base of your neck. It lies in the middle between your two collar bones (see illustration).Place the “0” of the tape measure at the sternal notch, and then angle the tape at a diagonal in the direction of your nipple. Make note of that number. Repeat the measurement for the other breast.

Do not be alarmed if the measurements are not exactly the same. Some asymmetry of the breasts is quite normal.

Write you measurements on the next page that you determined and then read how to interperpret the results.

How to Interpret Your Measurements
Now for the fun part! You’ve done the measurements, now what do they mean? What type of surgery may you need will depend on two factors:

  • The distance between your nipples and your sternal notch.
  • The location of the majority of your breast tissue in your breast – top versus bottom.

The measurements you take are not absolutes, but are to be used as a general guideline to help you assess your breasts and the amount of sagging or droopiness you may have.

There may be other factors that will guide your plastic surgeon in determining if you need a breast lift, a breast augmentation or a combination of both. By submitting your photos to a Thailand surgeon we can then provide you with a professional recommendation.


If your sternal notch-to-nipple distances are 21 centimetres or less:

AND your breasts are not bottom heavy, you may not need a breast lift.However, if you want your breasts to be larger in size you can augment them with breast implants.

If your sternal notch to nipple distances are 21 centimetres or less:

AND you have breast ptosis/sag (meaning the majority of your breast tissue is at the bottom part of the breast), you may need a breast lift.For a larger breast size, you will need some type of breast enhancement with Breast implants

If your sternal notch-to-nipple distances are around 22 or 23 centimetres:
AND your nipple and areola are in the middle of your breasts (not on the bottom portion), and your breasts are not bottom-heavy, you may not need a breast lift.

For bigger breasts, you’ll need some type of breast augmentation.

If your sternal notch-to-nipple distances are around 22 or 23 centimetres:
AND your nipple points toward the floor or is centered at the bottom part of your breast, you may need a breast lift.
If you desire larger breasts you can have augmentation with implants at the same time as the breast lift.

If your sternal notch-to-nipple distances are 24 centimetres or more:

You will need a breast lift to achieve the look of perky breasts.
For an increase in breast size, implants can be used to augment the breasts

Tighten Your Sagging Breast Naturally

Over your lifetime, the shape and size of your breasts are going to change. When pregnant, they will swell up. When you lose weight, they will go down in size just like the rest of your body. All of these changes in your life can cause the elasticity in your skin to decline, the wall ligaments in your chest to weaken and your breasts to deflate or sag. Even though you aren’t going to be able to correct a large amount of sagging alone, making changes in your lifestyle can help make your breasts appear tighter and fuller.

Get Rid of the Excess Body Fat

At times, the breasts begin sagging because they are simply far too heavy to hold themselves up any longer. Take your time and start losing weight slowly. Don’t lose more than a half kilo or kilo per week. By losing weight slowly, you give your skin the time it needs to shrink down as the size of your breasts decrease.

Build the Pectorals with Strength Training Exercises

You should spend time every day doing some strength training exercises to help boost your pectorals and increase their size. If you have larger muscles, it will help to push the tissue in your breasts forward and fill any excess skin , thus making your breasts appear fuller and tighter. Doing pushups, incline presses and chest flys will help to boost your chest muscles. If you can’t do them every day, aim for at least two times in the week.

Drink Plenty of Water

Increase the amount of water you are taking in to the point where you are drinking a minimum of one Litre of water every day. When skin becomes dehydrated, it loses its elastic and supple nature. By hydrating your skin, it will help to improve elasticity, strength and appearance.

Sports Bras Aren’t Optional

Whenever you go out for a jog, cycling or any other type of exercise, you need to make sure you are wearing a sports bra. Properly supporting your breasts will help to prevent any damage to all of the ligaments that work to keep your breasts in place.

Breast Augmentation Surgery

Spend some time submitting your images to one of our certified plastic surgeon in Thailand about having breast augmentation surgery done. For some women, their sagging breasts are far more severe than others. While the aforementioned tips might help some, surgery is the only option for others. Combining breast augmentation surgery, proper hydration, strength training and weight loss will provide you with the overall shape you desire.

Breasts lift surgery in Thailand can help to put your breasts back where they belong and eliminate the sagging appearance that has plagued you for so long. Even though it might be frustrating now, there is hope when it comes to restoring your breasts to their original position. Once you have the chance to speak with the surgeon when you arrive in Phuket, you can determine what procedure is going to work the best for your specific wants and needs. Before you know it, your breasts will be where they are supposed to be.

Will a breast lift cause scarring?

Scars from Breast Lifts

If you are want your breasts to look perkier, you may be considering breast surgery in Thailand where you can get a breast lift and implants for 1/3 the cost of Australia.

A breast lift is a simple procedure that can allow you to enjoy firm and youthful looking breasts for years to come.

However, you may be concerned about scarring, particularly if you want to get back into your bikini in record time.

All plastic surgeries will leave some scarring, whether you decide to have the procedure done at home or somewhere exotic.

World class surgeons, such as those who operate out of Phuket International Hospital and Bangkok Hospital Phuket, are trained to only leave minimal scarring and to place this in areas that are likely to be concealed by your bra or bikini top so you can enjoy your new look.

You can talk to him or her about your concerns and see which breast lift techniques will work best to get the look you desire.

Most women find their scars begin to fade over time and eventually they may become virtually unnoticeable to the human eye.

Are there any ways to reduce scarring?

If you are concerned about scarring, there are a few ways to limit the marks after surgery.

At first these cars may appear red and lumpy, but you can use cortisone cream to reduce their appearance. It is best to discuss this with your doctor before trying it for yourself.

Keeping your breasts out of the sun – at least for the first few months – may also help to minimise the risk of scarring as the bright sun can cause these to become stronger and more obvious.

Make sure you stay healthy after your breast surgery by attempting light exercise in line with your doctor’s recommendations and eating a balanced diet. These activities will help your body to recover more quickly.

Breast Lifts Improve Breast

A woman’s breasts help define her femininity, and with the vast differences in shape, size, and appearance, breasts further help to define her individualism. Therefore, changes to the breasts can be dissatisfying and make women feel as if they are losing some of their femininity and youthful vitality.

What causes breasts to change shape?

Although there are many factors that can contribute to sagging of the breasts, the ageing process and the effects of gravity play a primary role in these changes. Just like facial skin, the skin around the breast loses its elasticity in response to a gradual breakdown of the skin’s support network, which causes it to become lax. In addition, the suspensory ligaments that attach the breast to the chest wall weaken and stretch in response to gravity.

The breasts also enlarge during pregnancy and breast feeding, which further causes the skin to stretch. As the breasts reduce in size following pregnancy, the skin that was once stretched, is now loose and sags.

Lastly, fluctuations in your weight and even hormonal changes can cause your breasts to change in appearance. In combination, these factors can cause the breast to droop and sag, or in some cases rotate in a downward direction.

Vertical technique

Majority of Cosmetic Surgeons use the vertical technique for all kinds of breast reductions , breast lifts and Breast Lift with Implants. It involves a v-shaped incision that extends around the top of the areola and down the midline of the breast.

Although this procedure is less invasive, as they reduce the scar (no horizontal scar), it also achieves a large degree of lift. This technique gives a better projection of the breast and a long-lasting result compared to the ‘anchor’ technique. Therefore, this type of incision is appropriate for individuals with larger breasts and moderate to severe breast ptosis (drooping).

Breast lift recovery

It is recommend that patients wear a type of compression garment following their procedure. This tight-fitting garment will help to reduce swelling by preventing fluid build up, as well as provide comfort and support as the patient heals. You will likely have to wear the compression garment for several weeks.

Most often surgical drains are present, they along with any bandages will likely be removed within 24 hours, while any dissolvable stitches may stay in place for one to two weeks. You may experience some minor pain, bruising, and swelling, as well as numbness around the areola-all of which should subside in several weeks.

Although you may feel well enough to return to work in approximately one week, you should continue to avoid strenuous activity such as exercise for three or four weeks after your procedure to allow your body sufficient time to heal.It is a requirement that client remain in Phuket for at least 16 days after surgery date for recovery.

Breast lift results

Patients will be able to notice a dramatic difference in the shape and position of their breasts immediately following your procedure and may continue to notice a change in the appearance of their breasts as swelling subsides and they settle into their new positions. In fact, it may take up to one year before the final results from the procedure are apparent.

Although there will be permanent scars following a breast lift, the scars will slowly face to thin white lines with time. It is important to realise that if you become pregnant after having a breast lift, the effects of pregnancy and breast feeding may compromise the results and cause your breasts to sag and change shape.

Although a breast lift cannot stop the ageing process, it can help you not only improve the position of your breast but restore the fuller, shapelier appearance that you desire for years to come.
