When visiting Envi Plastic Surgery for your consultation, our doctors and staff will go over the procedure with you to clarify any questions you may have.
There are several different techniques used for breast lifts. During your consultation, our doctors will discuss which approach will be best for you. Regardless of the technique it is our doctor’s goal to make the scarring as minimal and inconspicuous as possible. Although it is impossible to perform a breast lift with no scars, for most women the scarring is acceptable as they are hidden along the natural breast contours and over time will fade to your regular skin color.
Because surgery can possibly alter your mammogram it?s a good idea and often required by the doctor to get a mamogram prior to your surgery. You will be provided a set of pre-operative instructions describing how you should prepare for surgery. It?s possible in rare situations that a blood transfusion is necessary so it may be advised to donate a unit of your own blood several weeks prior to surgery. This is typically only recommended for patients with very large breasts.
We will provide a set of pre-operative instructions that describe the steps you need to take to prepare for surgery. This will cover things like activities, foods, and medications to avoid prior to surgery. It?s important that you familiarize yourself with and follow those instructions, and we also recommend arranging for a responsible adult to take you home after the surgery and stay with you the first night if necessary.
Before your procedure, you will meet with our doctors and?anesthesiologist to ask any last-minute questions. The actual surgery typically takes less than 3 hours. Afterwards you?ll be moved into your recovery room which will typically last 1 to 1 1/2 hours before you?ll be discharged.
The procedure requires making an incision around the areola which extends downward along the fold beneath your breast. The excess skin and fatty tissue will then be removed.
During the procedure your nipple and areola will be re-positioned to provide a more youthful result. In most cases this is done without completely separating the nipple from the milk ducts however in some rare circumstances the nipple has to be completely separated from the ducts. In these cases it?s possible that you might experience a loss of nipple/areolar sensation. It?s also likely that you will be unable to breast feed in the future.
After surgery you?ll need to restrict certain activities that involve heavy lifting or vigorous arm movements for up to 4 weeks. Most women return to work approximately 10 ? 14 days after surgery. You?ll be provided with a detailed list activities to avoid and things to be aware of post surgery.
