Breast Lift Augmentation Recovery

The breast lift augmentation recovery procedure is different for every patient. However, there are some possible negative effects of the surgical operation that may occur within the recovery timeline.

These side effects can be resolved with proper medications and maintenance.

For you to have a clearer understanding about the actual recovery processes after days and weeks of your surgery, it would benefit you to take a look at the following guide:

Breast lift augmentation surgery requires the use of general anesthesia. It is expected that you will wake from your surgery with bandages and garments on your chest. After the surgery, you may feel nausea and possibly other mild problems. However, these are common to all patients who have undergone any types of surgery. Also, it is common to experience grogginess and fatigue for some days after their surgical operation as a result of general anesthesia. Even if you think that you feel alright, you need to let someone drive you home from your surgeon’s office.

You can also expect to have some follow-up visits with your doctor as you heal. If your doctor installed drainage tubes during your surgical operation, these will be removed a few days after your surgery,when your bandages will also be changed.Some Expectations During Breast Lift Augmentation RecoveryYou may experience some discomfort within the first few days after your surgery. To handle these situations, your surgeon will give you some prescriptions for medications. Soreness, redness and mild pain are common complications associated with this procedure. However, these are only normal to the patients who have undergone surgery. Just make sure that the problems you are experiencing are not extremely severe. If something is wrong with your recovery procedures, contact your surgeon at once. Ask your surgeon what would be the best things to do to avoid or get rid of the complications that you are experiencing.

For a quick recovery period, always follow the instructions of your surgeon. To guide you through your recovery program, the following are some of the things that you need to consider:

Take a rest after your surgery. You may sleep and let someone take care of you.

Make sure that all prescriptions are already purchased and located somewhere easily accessible.

Let someone manage all the household chores and don’t do strenuous activitiesThese may cause bleeding and pain on the treated areas.

Don’t skip your meals, and take the prescribed medications on time.

Always eat a healthy diet. Prepare nutritious foods, fluids and crackers so that you can easily have them when you are hungry.

Don’t force yourself to move your arms without full support. This can stretch out the stitches of the incision sites on your treated areas.

Only perform gentle and light physical exercise, like walking, because this helps your physical health condition.

Wear your compression garment after the surgery as suggested by your plastic surgeon.

These things mentioned above must be followed during your recovery period to ensure that you can recover from surgery based on the timeline provided by your plastic surgeon.

Eyelid Surgery (Blepharoplasty)

Blepharoplasty involves cutting out excess skin (and sometimes fat and muscle as well) from either the upper or lower eyelids to reduce the appearance of heavy and droopy eyelids. This operation can significantly rejuvenate the eye and periorbital (around the eyes) area, and “open up” the eye, so more of the iris shows. It usually results in eyes that appear younger and more rested.

As we age, the muscles and skin of the lid and other eye-related structures droop, causing heavy, redundant lids, bags under the eyes and a “hound-dog” look. Not only the eyes, but the forehead and brow can also descend and add to the overall undesirable effect. In these cases, lid surgery alone may not be enough, but can be combined with forehead and brow lifts.

Upper blepharoplasty is very effective in eliminating the extra skin and giving the eyes a fresher and more pleasing appearance. For patients who have puffy bags under their eyes, a lower blepharoplasty may be appropriate. Since this surgery has more potential complications than the upper, the surgical planning and approach are slightly different. Often, the two procedures are done together.Surgery-Upper blepharoplasty

A simple incision is made in the lid, and excess skin (and fat and muscle, if necessary) are removed. The incision is then closed. The resultant scar is usually only minimal, well hidden in the natural creases of the eyelid.

Surgery-Lower blepharoplasty

The approach to lower blepharoplasty is somewhat different than upper. It is generally more prone to problems, especially if too much skin is removed. Excessive resection here can lead to ectropion (eversion, or outward turning, of the lower lid) which gives a tired and sometimes “clownish” look, and can result in dry eyes. Also, lagophthalmos (inability to completely close the lids) can occur. For these reasons, skin and muscle resection, if done at all, is very conservative. Our usual approach is to do a simple removal of herniated fat (removing the excess fat from under the lid that causes bags) and a “pinch resection”, meaning that only as much extra tissue as can be pinched with forceps (without distorting the anatomy of the eye) is removed.

Both these operations are simple, and is usually done under local anesthesia (numbing of the eyelids) along with sedation. Although bruising and swelling are quite common after this surgery, recovery is usually rapid and pain is minimal.
