In addition to supplying comprehensive pre-operative preparation and post-operative recovery information, our doctor provides the following basic guidelines for his breast lift patients following breast lift surgery:

  • Post-operative visit the next day
  • Minimal discomfort without implant OR two days of moderate discomfort with implant
  • Return to work/driving by the fifth day
  • Light exercise at end of two weeks
  • Full exercise at end of one month

Discomfort during recovery can be managed with pain medication if necessary, and it is very important to follow our doctor’s post-operative instructions to help minimize any chance of complications. During the initial stage of recovery, it is recommended that you arrange for a family member or friend to take you home after the operation, help you with any needs the first night, and drive you to your post-operative appointment the next day.
