Breast augmentations, including lift procedures, are the most commonly requested cosmetic surgery in the United States. Each year, hundreds of thousands of these procedures are completed nationwide. If you’re considering a breast lift procedure to get a high, firm bust line, there are some prerequisites that most good candidates share. Of course, each person is an individual, and these are just general guidelines. The best way to determine if you qualify for a breast lift, breast implants, a tummy tuck, a Mommy Makeover or any other cosmetic surgical procedure is to schedule a consultation at our office in Wellington.
Good Overall Health
Since a breast lift is a surgical procedure, the ideal candidate is in good overall health. If you need to lose weight or have recently recovered from an illness, consult Dr. Nir about what you can do to get ready for elective surgery.
Smoking doesn’t just stain your teeth and make you cough; it also makes healing more difficult. People who smoke cigarettes heal much slower than those who don’t smoke, as well as having an increased risk of complications. If you do smoke, you should quit at least six weeks prior to your surgery to ensure proper healing.
Good candidates for a breast lift also have realistic expectations regarding the results of the procedure. They understand that the procedure will provide them with a higher, perkier bust, but that it won’t give them the breasts they had in their teenage years. Patients who have a good idea of what to expect regarding the outcome tend to be more satisfied with their results in the long run.
Optimal Time to Heal
Healing time is not negotiable after a breast lift. Your body needs at least a few weeks to heal. Although all people are different, you still need to have ample time in your schedule for your recovery.
