Your doctor will explain how to take care of your incisions to ensure proper healing. They may also ask you to wear a compression garment that supports your breast lift. During your recovery, which usually spans about two to three weeks, you should avoid excessive exercise and other motions that might aggravate your scars. Although it is impossible to avoid surgical scars completely, they will fade over time.
While your body is subject to the natural effects of aging, there are some ways to preserve the results of your breast lift, including:
- Maintaining a stable weight
- Avoiding becoming pregnant
- Taking care of your skin and avoiding excessive sun exposure
- Wearing supportive bras, especially during physical activity
By taking care of your body, you can help your results last as long as possible.
