On the day of your procedure Dr. Cruise and his surgical staff will prep you for surgery and answer any questions you may have, including those regarding your breast lift recovery. To start, general anesthesia or local anesthesia will be used during your breast lift procedure. The decision of which anesthesia that will be used for your procedure will be discussed prior to the day of surgery.
Once the procedure has been completed, Dr. Cruise and his staff will securely bandage your breasts to keep the surgical site protected. After you’ve had time in recovery, you will be released to a friend or family member to go home. You’ll most likely be feeling tired and groggy from the surgery, and any pain will be managed using medication prescribed by Dr. Cruise.
One Week Post-Procedure
Within the first week post-procedure, you will be seen for a follow-up appointment where your bandages will be changed. If you’re healing well and your pain is minimal, you may be able to return to work depending on the nature of your job. While it is important to rest during this time, you’ll want to be sure to get up to move around periodically to prevent blood clots.
