Tips For A Speedy Breast Lift Recovery

How to Quickly Recover From a Breast Lift

When it comes to surgeries, everyone has different reactions and heals at their own pace. It can be scary not to know when you will be 100% back to normal. Nevertheless, our Wall Street Cosmetic Surgery team is here to share tips to improve the breast lift recovery process.

Know Your Medications

After your procedure, you will be prescribed pain medication to help alleviate any discomfort. Once you feel better, you can switch to painkillers such as acetaminophen. We recommend you avoid aspirin, ibuprofen, and naproxen, as they may contribute to blood thinning and cause excessive bleeding. Additionally, you should not take supplements like fish oil or vitamins while recovering.

Set Up Relaxing Areas

As you heal from breast surgery, you must sleep on your back for a few weeks. To speed up the recovery process, you need to allow yourself to have a break from your daily routine. Try to set up two spots where you can sit in a recliner and lay in a bed to rest. Grab your softest blanket, start a new television show series, and relax comfortably in your living room. 

Keep Moving Around

While you should let your body rest, you want to ensure that you don’t end up completely inactive. Even just walking from your bedroom to the kitchen is an acceptable amount of exercise. Taking short walks will keep your heart rate elevated to prevent blood clotting. Moreover, avoid high-intensity activities until your doctor clears you.
