Every aspect of a mastopexy is critical, but the one step where the patient has the most control is during the recovery. Mastopexy, otherwise known as breast lift surgery, is a multifaceted cosmetic procedure with several variables that surgically enhances the look and feel of your breasts. The way you approach post-operative recovery and how strictly you adhere to Dr. Brian Eichenberg’s instructions are key factors that contribute to successful results.
After your breast lift, Dr. Eichenberg will remove the bandages in the first few days to examine the incisions and make sure everything is healing properly. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eichenberg will inspect your results and check the color and blood supply around the areolae.
You’ll likely be prescribed medication for pain, and by the second or third week, the stitches will be removed. It is important that you avoid heavy lifting of any kind. The breasts will reach their final post-operative shape within six weeks to six months, depending on the individual and details of the procedure.
