How long does the breast lift procedure take and what is the recovery time?

Breast lifts typically take between one and three hours to perform, and are usually carried out as an out-patient – so you don’t even have to have an overnight hospital stay.

At your first consultation your surgeon will discuss with you the exact technique for your surgery as there are a number of ways to do it. Loose skin will be removed from the breast, and the incisions to do this may be made around the colored part of the nipple (the areola) or underneath the breast in the crease where it joins the chest wall. Once the loose skin is removed, the wounds will be stitched closed and allowed to heal.

What is the recovery time for a breast lift?

Recovery time is reasonably short in comparison to other plastic surgery procedures. You will feel sore and stiff after the surgery, but this will start to diminish after a few days. You should be careful not to overstretch and refrain from lifting. You may feel up to going back to work after a week, provided you have a sedentary job. Over the next few weeks you will gradually get better and by 6 weeks should be able to engage in vigorous activity and sports.
