If you have a cosmetic or medical issue that affects the appearance of your breasts, causing them to sag or droop, you may consider getting a breast lift. After the recovery phase, you can enjoy some of the following benefits:
One reason that some people may hesitate to make the leap is the recovery process that follows all plastic surgery procedures. We prepare you for everything in advance and stay in constant contact while you heal. A proper recovery is necessary to achieve the full results of a breast lift.
Before your breast lift, Dr. Deigni will provide your personalized post-operative and recovery procedures during your initial consultation with our clinic. It is important to follow these guidelines exactly. Below are some general guidelines, collected from years of experience, on how you can ensure a smooth recovery from your Houston breast lift procedure.
The most important guideline for your breast lift recovery is to limit as much movement as possible. During the first week, you do not want to be raising your arms above your shoulders, lifting anything heavy, or engaging in any kind of activity that works the chest muscles.
Ideally, you should create a comfortable and relaxing space for yourself. Ensure that you are able to rest completely for at least two to four weeks and do not to engage in any type of strenuous activity – such as working out at the gym – until your plastic surgeon gives you the all clear.
Ensuring a healthy, balanced lifestyle after your breast lift surgery is critical to making your beautiful results last as long as possible. We recommend that you maintain a healthy diet consisting of fresh fruits, green vegetables, whole grains, and lean protein. Make sure you get the recommended daily water intake of eight glasses. We suggest taking a daily multivitamin or supplement to ensure that you are meeting your nutritional needs. This helps not only with the recovery but with maintaining the lifted look for years to come.
We will schedule several follow-up appointments with Dr. Deigni so that he can assess your progress and provide updated information on when you can resume certain activities.
Getting a surgical treatment will require some downtime afterward but it also provides longer-lasting results. Being prepared ahead of time will make the whole post-operative process a lot more bearable.
