If you’ve been considering a breast lift, it’s important to take the right steps before you meet your surgeon so that you can get the best results possible.
1. Choose the Right Surgeon
The breast lift is a unique procedure that lifts, tightens and improves symmetry in your breast tissue. This process can require a specialized touch that not every surgeon may have. Because of the high level of skill required to deliver quality breast lift results, you should make sure that you always select a board certified plastic surgeon for your procedure. Board certification is more than just another accolade—it indicates that your surgeon has the experience and training necessary to deliver beautiful and satisfying results.
2. Drop the Bad Habits
The success of your breast lift is impacted by your physical health, skin elasticity and other physical characteristics your surgeon must account for. Bad habits like smoking, alcohol abuse or having a poor diet can weaken your body’s immune system and slow down your recovery. It may also impact your results by reducing your skin’s ability to stretch and remain firm. Ditch the tobacco, alcohol and junk food before your procedure to get the best results.
3. Have Support Ready
Your friends and family should know about your procedure so that you have emotional support if you need it. The last thing you’ll feel like doing during your recovery will be preparing meals or taking care of kids—line up child or pet care beforehand. And while you’re at it, ensure your recovery area is fully stocked with medicine, lotions and easy-to-grab foods to help the healing process go as smoothly as possible.
