Many women experience sagging breasts as they age or after they have had children. For these women, a breast lift may be just what they need to restore their confidence and love their breasts again. When considering getting breast lift surgery, it is important that you ask your doctor questions that will clear up any confusion you may have about the procedure.
Dr. Greenberg is New York-based board-certified plastic surgeon who has been featured on CBS, Fox News, NBC and News 12 Long Island. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the field of cosmetic plastic surgery and will be able to answer all the questions you may have for him during your initial consultation. To make sure that breast lift surgery is right for you, be sure to ask Dr. Greenberg the following questions during your consultation.
What Will Breast Lift Surgery Accomplish?
Before getting breast lift surgery, you will want to create a clear game plan that outlines what the procedure can do for you and your body. Dr. Greenberg will access your current body composition and end goals with the procedure to ensure that it will accomplish all of your needs. At this time, you will discuss implant options and what he can achieve for you regarding size and lift.
Ultimately, breast lift surgery will give your breasts more firmness and perkiness and can reshape overly large areolas if this is a concern for you. You may choose to either go up or down a cup size, depending on your preference.
How Can You Prepare for Breast Lift Surgery?
Dr. Greenberg’s expert team will provide you with detailed instructions to follow before surgery. You may need to stop taking certain medications and abstain from smoking prior to the procedure for best results and minimal complications.
How Long Will Your Implants Last?
It is important that you discuss the longevity of your implants before beginning surgery. Whether or not you want to breastfeed or have more children may affect your decision to get breast lift surgery or wait until you are done having children. You may also want to consider whether you plan to lose or gain any weight as that will affect the look of your implants.
What Can You Expect Before and After Surgery?
Before your surgery, it is important to know you will be under general anesthesia and that your operation will take 1-2 1/2 hours from start to finish. It is an outpatient procedure that may leave you with mild discomfort for 1-3 days following the procedure. To heal properly, you will need to keep your bandages on for 24 hours following the procedure and wear a surgical bra for 3-4 weeks. Your stitches will be removed after 5-7 days by Dr. Greenberg, and you may resume upper body exercises after 3-4 weeks.
