In general, most women choose to undergo a breast lift to restore the appearance of their breasts after pregnancy or after undergoing substantial weight loss. A breast lift can be very effective in reducing sagging to give you the appearance of perkier, more youthful looking breasts. If you are planning on having more children in the future, you may want to wait to have your breast lift since future pregnancies may adversely impact the results of your procedure.
In most cases, you should be able to breastfeed following your breast lift. It is important to discuss any future pregnancy and breastfeeding plans you may have with Dr. Foster at your initial consultation so that he can adjust your procedure accordingly. However, it is important to understand that future pregnancies may counteract the results you have achieved from your procedure. In general, Dr. Foster recommends waiting until you are done having children to undergo a breast lift.
There are several factors which impact how long your breast lift will last, including:
In general, your results should last for a long time. However, it is important to understand that the results are not permanent. Over time, you will experience sagging again due to the forces of gravity. Wearing supportive bras, eating a healthy diet, and avoiding extended sun exposure can help you increase the duration of your results.
At your breast lift consultation, Hartford plastic surgeon Dr. Stanley Foster will measure your breasts and torso to determine the ideal position for your breasts following the procedure. He will then provide you with a detailed explanation of how the procedure will be performed and review all possible risks and complications with you. Your consultation is also an opportunity for you to ask Dr. Foster any questions you may have about the procedure before you decide to move forward.
You will need to rest for several days following your procedure. However, Dr. Foster recommends light movement around the house as soon as you feel up to it. It is important that you do not lift anything over your head for at least 4 weeks after your breast lift, and you should avoid strenuous activity for at least three weeks.
