Humans don’t really age on the inside – it’s just our bodies! It can be confounding to realize your body is sagging and losing its elasticity when your mind is still as youthful as ever. The discrepancy can be very damaging to your self-esteem. The good news is, you have options. At Front Range Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, we have dedicated ourselves to understanding our patients and giving them the results that boost their confidence and put a smile on their faces when they look in the mirror.
In our last blog, we discussed some frequently-asked questions about a breast lift procedure, which can renew the shape of your breasts when they have lost their elasticity. Today, we have a few more questions to answer!
I want symmetrical breasts – can a lift with implants give me these results?
- The fact is, nobody’s body is symmetrical. In fact, perfectly symmetrical breasts would just highlight the asymmetry of the rest of your body. A Board-Certified plastic surgeon like our Dr. Schutte will be able to deliver results you love – results that are symmetrical and confidence-building.
How long is the recovery from a breast lift?
- It depends on how much skin is removed, but you’ll be back in action anywhere from two to 14 days after your procedure. If you don’t have to do heavy lifting, you can return to normal life faster. If you consistently do heavy lifting, you’re looking at the 14 day range. Otherwise, it’s two to five days of recovery. Your plastic surgeon will give you a custom recovery time you can trust.
A blog answering some questions is no replacement for a face-to-face conversation with a board-certified plastic surgeon. Make an appointment with us to access the extensive experience of Dr. Schutte and his compassionate, knowledgeable staff!
