The breast lift can be done in an outpatient setting, at a surgery center and occasionally in the office. We use either general or local anesthetic.
After surgery there will be some swelling and discoloration, but this will subside in a few weeks*. Scars will fade after about a year, but may not be noticeable due to the way your breasts are shaped after the procedure*.
You will be able to return to your normal routine after a few days*, but strenuous activity and exercise should be put off for at least a month or until Dr. Haupt tells you it is okay.

In a breast reduction procedure the goal is to make the breast size significantly smaller – so the symptoms that a heavy breast creates on the neck, shoulders and back are alleviated. In a breast lift procedure it keeps the breast approximately the same size, but tightens up the loose skin of the breast, so the shape is improved giving you a more youthful and uplifted look.
Yes you can.
If you are a smoker, It is recommended that you quit smoking 6 weeks before surgery to reduce the risks of smoking related complications. We also recommend no smoking during the healing process.
