Common Questions About Breast Lift
As a leading plastic surgeon serving the Miami area for over 20 years, Dr. Ary Krau has met with thousands of women seeking perkier, beautiful breasts through breast lift surgery. As a result, he has heard (and answered) countless questions regarding the procedure. Here, he shares the top five questions women have about breast lift surgery.
Will a Breast Lift Alter the Size of My Breasts?
Breast lift surgery is designed to lift the breasts and remove excess tissue and skin. As a result, breast lift surgery may reduce the size of your breasts, but only slightly. If you want to preserve your current breast size or want to increase it, Dr. Krau can combine breast lift with breast augmentation.
How Do I Prepare for Breast Lift Surgery?
Before your surgery, Dr. Krau will give you a list of instructions on how to prepare for surgery. For example, if you smoke, you will need to quit four weeks prior to your surgery date. You will also need to stop taking certain medications as they can increase complications during surgery. It is also wise to prepare for your breast lift recovery in advance.
How Soon Will I See My Results?
You will see a noticeable change in the position of your breasts immediately after surgery. However, the final results will become more apparent over the next few months as the swelling goes down and your breasts fully heal.
Do I Need Implants Too?
If you desire larger breasts and are bothered by breast sag, you may benefit from a combination procedure. By combining breast lift with implants, you can enjoy breasts that are fuller and rounder throughout the upper pole. A combination procedure also results in perkier breasts and more cleavage.
What Are the Side Effects of Breast Lift Surgery?
The main side effects of breast lift are mild swelling, bruising and soreness. These effects are temporary and usually subside within the first few days of recovery. To help ease discomfort, Dr. Krau can prescribe medication. Although rare, complications are possible. Possible risks include infection and excessive bleeding. As a highly skilled plastic surgeon, Dr. Krau is proud of his low rate of complications. However, he believes every patient should be well-informed on the inherent risks that come with breast lift surgery. He will discuss these complications and risks in detail with you during your initial consultation.
