BREAST LIFTING : POST-OPERATIVE CARES
The lifting of hanging breasts takes about two to three hours and you can leave the clinic the same day. During a breast uplift, subcutaneous drains (fine tubes) are sometimes placed to drain off excess wound fluids. These tubes will be removed after about three days.
After the lifting of breasts, you need to wear a support bra during one month. This bra perfectly supports your breasts and is measured on immediately after the breast uplift. The first few weeks after the breast uplift, heavy exertions should be avoided. Most patients go back to work after about a week.
Breast lifting leaves a scar around the nipple and a vertical scar that goes to the breast fold. Our plastic surgeon uses an advanced technique without incisions (and scars) in the breast fold. So, the inverted T or the so-called anchor scar belongs to the past. The aesthetic result is now far more beautiful.
The scars will be reddish at first but they will gradually fade and smoothen. To expedite the healing process after the lifting of hanging breasts, the scars can be carefully massaged with a moisturizing lotion after about two weeks.
It can happen, though only occasionally, that the scar needs to be corrected. It all depends on the surgery technique which was applied. This correction will be done under local anaesthesia and always provides great results.
I had my breast uplift with a little reduction on the 5th September at Clinic Beaucare. I arrived home four days later with the Eurostar and I'm in the meantime back to work now (a week after) feeling somewhat tired and very little pain (not taking any pain killers).
I am healing very well and have had absolutely no problems whatsoever - in fact I am already doing light exercises back at the gym.
I have recommended Clinic BeauCare and their very professional surgeons to all of my friends and I will possibly be looking at coming back later to Brussels for another cosmetic surgery myself.
