If you’re thinking about having your breasts lifted, you’re probably wondering if you can still have the procedure without getting breast implants at the same time. The short answer is yes—you absolutely can! While there are many reasons why some women opt to have both procedures done together, there are just as many who have one or the other and don’t feel like they need to do both in order to get the look they want.
Things to consider before opting for a breast lift without implants
Your ideal breast size might be different from what you currently have. If your breasts have always looked and felt great to you, that’s awesome! But if they aren’t as perky or full as you want them to be, don’t fret—you may still want to consider breast lift surgery.
Things to remember when having breast lift surgery
As you’re considering breast lift surgery, there are some things to keep in mind. A breast lift is a fairly common cosmetic procedure that can give patients relief from issues such as drooping breasts and excess skin. But like any procedure, it can also have potential risks if not done properly. It’s important to educate yourself on both before moving forward with treatment plans.
Pre-Surgery Guidelines For Breast Lifts
It is important to follow your plastic surgeon’s pre-surgery guidelines for breast lifts to make sure you are ready for surgery. Make sure you have been exercising and following your diet. Don’t consume any alcohol in the days leading up to surgery as it slows blood flow and delays healing. Do not take ibuprofen or aspirin, as these may thin your blood, which increases bleeding during and after surgery.
Top tips for a successful breast lift without implants
Who is a good candidate for breast lift surgery, and who is not? There are several factors to consider when deciding whether or not you are a good candidate for breast lift surgery.
What is a Breast Lift?
Though lifting and tightening loose or sagging skin is often associated with breast augmentation, breast lifts are also extremely popular procedures. A breast lift is also called mastopexy (which means lifting up your breasts) and involves repositioning and resizing natural breasts. A breast lift is a procedure that focuses on improving the size, shape, position, and symmetry of a woman’s breasts.
What Does the Breast Lift Procedure Entail?
Breast lifts don’t usually require anesthesia and you can go home that same day. The procedure takes about one hour. An incision is made around each nipple, from which excess skin and tissue are removed. The nipples may be repositioned slightly higher on the breast mound to create a more youthful look. This will help reduce the drooping of your breasts with age and weight gain. Sometimes, implants are placed as part of a breast lift; other times, they’re not necessary or preferred.
Post-Surgery Recovery Tips To Follow For A Quick Recovery
Are you recovering from breast lift surgery, but not sure how to handle all of your normal day-to-day responsibilities while your body is healing? There are certain tips and tricks that will allow you to get through recovery without missing a beat. Even though these tips will seem like common sense, some people may not think about them. This list has been created by experienced professionals who have performed hundreds of breast lifts over their careers and have also seen what does and doesn’t work for post-surgery recovery.
