Breast lift or lift with implants recovery time is approximately 4-6 weeks. During this time, it’s important to refrain from lifting heavy objects and strenuous physical activities.

Following breast lift or breast lift with implants, most patients notice immediate improvements to their overall figure. However, you may also experience bruising and swelling that temporarily obscures your results. In addition, the implants are placed underneath the pectoralis major, the large muscle in your chest.  The muscle will spasm when you wake up from surgery, and the implants will ride very high.  As your body heals, swelling and bruising will resolve, and your new contours will become more visible. Swelling and high implants may take up to 6 months to fully resolve. 

You’ll experience long-lasting results, 10-20 years, from your Baton Rouge, LA breast lift or breast lift with implants procedure by maintaining your healthy diet and exercise regimen.

While you’re researching, save pictures of your favorite “after” results and bring them to your consultation with Dr. Daugherty.
