Breast Lift Recovery Time: What to Expect After Surgery

Breast Lift recovery time can vary depending on factors like the type of procedure, the severity of the problem, and the patient’s recovery ability. Some people may need a shorter recovery period while others may require a longer one.

The average recovery time after Breast Lift surgery is 3 to 6 weeks. Usually your pain should be gone, and most swelling should disappear, your scars will start to flatten out over this time period as well.

After this time, you can stop wearing your compression bra and do most of the activities that are normal in your day-to-day life.

What is a Breast Lift and How Does It Affect the Female Body?

A Breast Lift (Mastopexy) is a type of surgery that raises and reshapes the breasts. It can also reduce sagging. It might be done to improve the appearance of breasts or after pregnancy to restore their shape.

Breast lifts are done by an experienced cosmetic surgeon who specializes in this type of procedure. The surgeon will make a small incision around the nipple and remove excess skin and tissue from under the breast, then tighten muscles and tissues so that they support the breast better.

The nipple might be moved up slightly on some occasions, but it will not be made higher than before or change its shape or size.
