Breast Lift Results: What to Expect

Image of breast lift resultsDr. John Tyrone will thoroughly outline the breast lift results that you can expect at his Jacksonville, FL, practice, well before surgery. During your consultation, the doctor will discuss all treatment options available to you, and address any questions or concerns you may have. Your consultation will help you understand the results you can expect from a breast lift, such as improved contours, perkiness, and firmness.

The doctor will also perform a physical examination during your consultation, and, depending on to what degree your breasts sag, he will recommend the lift technique that he feels will most benefit you. If you have an interest in enlarging your breasts in addition to lifting them, the doctor can also explain the benefits of combining an augmentation with your breast lift.

Results following Surgery

Patients can expect to see noticeable results immediately following their breast lift procedure. Breasts will feel firmer and appear higher on the chest.

Depending upon the technique that the doctor utilizes for your surgery, you may have noticeably visible incision lines on your breasts. While these lines will remain permanently, they will fade over time into thin white lines. The doctor may recommend a cortisone cream that can help reduce the appearance of the scars. During your initial consultation, Dr. Tyrone will explain what kind of scars you can expect with each type of incision.

Patients will see the final results of their surgery after a few months of recovery time. During this period, the breasts will settle into their permanent shape and position as swelling diminishes. For most patients, the results of the procedure last many years.

Dr. Tyrone will combine the highest level of care and artistry during your breast lift procedure to achieve beautiful and long-lasting results.

Maintaining Results

Following a breast lift procedure, patients should do their best to live a healthy lifestyle and maintain a healthy weight. Fluctuations in weight can change the results of breast lift surgery drastically. Patients should also understand that while the surgery effectively turns back time regarding the appearance of their breasts, the effects of aging and gravity will eventually change the breasts.

Dr. Tyrone recommends that any patient considering future pregnancy put off breast lift surgery, as the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause additional sagging of the breasts.

Combining Procedures

Patients should understand that while a breast lift will change the shape and position of the breasts, it will not change the size of the breasts. Patients who want to enlarge their breasts in addition to lifting them may choose to have implants placed during the same procedure.

Combining procedures offers many benefits, including fewer incisions for minimal scarring. Patients will also only have to go through one recovery period, and the cosmetic enhancement achieved through performing both procedures at once will be dramatic.
