Measures after breast lift surgery
Normally, the operation causes only slight pain in the days that follow. In some cases, this can be accompanied by severe swelling and bruising. As a rule, however, these after-effects quickly decrease over the course of the following days and weeks. In addition, your nipples may become less sensitive to touch. In our experience, "normal" sensation may not return for a few months after surgery. A final result can only be assessed around six months after the operation. If tissue areas have hardened, it can take up to two years before an improvement occurs. The situation is similar with breast lift scars, which will disappear over time until they become inconspicuous.
Careful follow-up treatment for a breast lift
If you take it easy, it usually takes less than a week before you feel completely recovered. Most of our patients go back to work after a short time. For the first two weeks after the breast lift, you should definitely sleep on your back to protect your breasts. You can shower or bathe in the usual way after a few days, if your stitches and bandages allow it. Then nothing stands in the way of your usual skin care. The threads in your stitches will either resolve themselves or remain in place for up to five weeks. This supports a fine, barely visible scar formation.
Please note: Once the bandages and threads have been removed and you have largely recovered from the procedure, it is important to wear a brassiere again. The bra should fit perfectly, support your breasts but not constrict them. Wear it 6/3 for at least XNUMX weeks, better even XNUMX months. This prevents excessive scarring because you use the bra to exert even pressure on your chest area. When you are discharged from the clinic, we will tell you what else is important to you, what further measures are necessary for individual aftercare and how many check-ups you should arrange.
