Things to Do Before Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery or mastopexy is a solution for sagging or droopy breasts and can result in a more youthful looking bust line. It can be done as a standalone procedure or in conjunction with breast augmentation surgery. Mastopexy removes excess or stretched skin and repositions the nipples appropriately. In addition to raising and reshaping the sagging breasts, a breast lift restore youthful contour and correct asymmetries. If you think that you have any of these issues and that this cosmetic surgery procedure can help, you should find a reliable plastic surgery practice with plastic surgeons that have a good track record in performing this cosmetic breast surgery. Once the surgeon determines that you can go ahead, here are some things that you need to do:

• Discuss your goals with the plastic surgeon. Enquire as whether your aims can be achieved and if not, how far they can be met.
• Ask your surgeon about the steps involved in the surgery and if a particular method is recommended, why it is suitable for you.
• Make sure you understand all the risks and benefits involved in the procedure
• Follow your surgeon’s pre-operative instructions which would include getting medical evaluation, lab test or mammogram, taking certain medications or adjusting the ones you already take, and avoiding certain medications which can increase bleeding and refraining from smoking.
• Ask how long the recovery period will be and make necessary arrangements to deal with it.
• Ask about the measures in place to handle complications that can occur.
• Make sure your surgical procedure is performed in an AAAASF-accredited surgical suite.
• Request to see before and after photos of the doctor’s patients
• Contact former patients for feedback on care and follow-up
• If breastfeeding, ask if the surgery will affect this
• Ask how your lifted breasts will look post-breastfeeding/over time

At a professional plastic surgery practice, the surgeon will use advanced 3D imaging technology to help you visualize the results of your breast lift and make an educated decision.
