Combining a breast lift and augmentation in one surgical session results in only a single recovery period. Your nurse will provide you with detailed post-operative instructions at your pre-operative visit and will review them again prior to your discharge home. Adhering to these instructions is essential for making sure your recovery goes as smoothly as possible.
A special surgical bra will need to be worn during the first part of the recovery process after your breast augmentation with lift. This bra will provide additional support and protection for the healing tissues. Swelling and bruising will be present but should fade away over the coming days.
Recovery time is about two weeks, and most patients take pain medication for a few days. Patients can typically return to work within 1-2 weeks, but heavy lifting, pushing or pulling should be avoided for the first 8-12 weeks following your surgery. Best results can be seen after all swelling has dissipated and the implants have settled.
The Cost of a Breast Lift with Implants
Many procedure details affect the total cost of a breast lift with implants. The cost of the implants plays a role in determining the total price, as do the techniques utilized and the total surgical time.
