Depending on the amount of skin removed, most women are back at work after breast lift surgery about a week after the procedure. No heavy lifting or exercise is recommended for 4-6 weeks.
The best way to determine with any certainty if breast augmentation is appropriate for you is to meet with Dr. Priti Patel.
It is possible to breast feed after breast lift as long as the nipple is left attached to the underlying breast tissue. Most women are able to breast feed quite successfully since the ducts are left attached, however it is not guaranteed.
Pregnancy can definitely change a woman’s breasts. We usually recommend that if a patient is going to get pregnant in the next year, she delay breast surgery just because the breast will be different after pregnancy. It is difficult to predict how much a breast will change so we recommend waiting 6 months after pregnancy to schedule surgery. That being said there is no contraindication to pregnancy after an augmentation or lift, however a revision may be needed in the future based on body changes.
We would love to achieve the best outcome for you so its important to be clear about your goals. A full consultation will helpful to discuss all your concerns.
