Breast Lift Surgery
When performing a breast lift, Dr. Potter will make incisions to remove excess skin, reshape the breast, and reposition it higher on the chest. Depending on the extent of the lift, different types of incisions will be used. Before undergoing surgery, breast lift patients will participate in a thorough evaluation and planning process to determine the best options for them.
Making a complete recovery from breast lift surgery takes four to six weeks, during which time patients may experience soreness and swelling, and should avoid heavy lifting and other strenuous tasks. Most patients are able to return to work after about two weeks. Because smoking affects healing, patients should stop smoking several weeks before surgery, and should avoid smoking during recovery from breast lift surgery.
Dr. Potter is committed to helping his patients achieve a beautiful body contour using breast reduction or breast lift surgery. To schedule a consultation, contact Graystone Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery today.
