How to maintain your post-op breasts and possible complications
Keeping your breasts looking great
Certain life events such as pregnancy, weight gain, ageing and gravity can adversely affect the results of your surgery. However, depending on the individual, the results are normally long-lasting. It is important that you maintain a relationship with your surgeon so as to monitor any changes.
If the surgery has been performed properly, your breasts should maintain their postoperative appearance for decades.
The possible complications of a breast lift
Complications with breast lift surgery are infrequent, and your personal risks will be discussed with you during your consultation. However, every procedure does have risks, and complications of surgeries are:
- Negative reaction to the anaesthetic
- Seroma or hematoma (blood or fluid accumulating under the skin that might have to be removed)
- Allergic reaction to medication
- Bleeding or infection
- Blood clots in the lungs or legs
- Unsatisfactory results which can lead to further surgeries
These risks are often minimised through having a certified surgeon and disclosing all your medical information and history to him/her. It is important, to be honest with your surgeon in order to ensure a successful surgery.
