In some cases, it is done in conjunction with placement of silicone implants.
The surgeon removes excess skin, usually with part of the areola while no breast tissue is removed. The nipple and areola are moved to the highest point and the breast returns to its natural position. The sutures used are usually internal and are absorbed through the skin. The patient should wear a special bra for one month after breast lift. In addition, the patient should avoid strenuous physical exercise, and can return to daily activities after about 10 days.
Breast lift is recommended to be done after completion of breast development. If the patient is overweight, she may need to lose weight before surgery.
Possible complications after surgery may be the occurrence of bleeding, inflammation, or disruption of the wound.
