A breast lift is a procedure designed to raise and reshape sagging breasts. This surgical procedure is ideal for women who have lost volume because of pregnancy or the natural effects of age and want to restore the size and firmness of their breasts.
Breast lifts are typically performed in a brief outpatient procedure, and most patients do not complain of substantial pain during or following breast lift surgery. As with any surgery, however, there will be at least some minor discomfort as your body heals.
In most cases, your post-operative discomfort can be controlled with over-the-counter pain medications. It is normal to feel minor discomfort for at least a few weeks, depending on your general health and the specifics of your procedure.
Some bruising and swelling is likewise to be expected, and should subside within a few days to a couple weeks following your breast lift.
You might also feel sensitivity or even loss of sensation in your breasts following a breast lift. This will likely resolve in a matter of weeks.
As you heal, it’s important to stay in touch with Los Angeles plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim to monitor your progress. Following Dr. Kim’s recovery guidelines will help minimize your pain as your body heals.
