Preparing for Breast Lift Surgery (Mastopexy)

The outstanding and impeccable Dr. Nasir and his team will support and guide the patient through the preparation process. He provides breast lift surgery to patients in New Haven, Westport, Fairfield County, Fairfield, Bridgeport, CT, New York, and surrounding locations across the landscape.


Assessing Patient’s Goals

The patient alone is in the best position to describe why she wants to choose breast lift plastic surgery. She should be forthcoming about what exactly about her breast shape makes her unhappy and whether she is only concerned about the sagging breasts or also about the breast size.

A procedure such as breast lift is a personal journey, and the patient should choose it only when she is fully ready for it. She should have clear aesthetic goals and a positive mindset about the surgery. The breast surgeon will support through this process during the preparatory stage.


Gaining Knowledge about Breast Lift   

As a part of the preparation, the breast lift candidate may consider talking to other women who have received the same procedure in the past and are willing to share their experiences. Certain blogs, internet discussion forums, social media networks, and platforms such as RealSelf offer an opportunity to interact with others and provide practical information about breast lift.

When the patient listens to the first-hand experiences and preparatory tips from others and enlists community support, it will improve her confidence levels and help her prepare well for breast lift surgery.


Health and Fitness

The patient should be having good general health and stable body weight. She should not be having plans for a weight loss program or a pregnancy in the near future. She should preferably maintain a regular exercise and fitness regimen, and eat a healthy diet rich in lean proteins. No one has to be an Olympic athlete or train every day like they are heading into some serious competition but exercise should not foreign to them and they should be moderately healthy.

The surgeon will help her to develop realistic expectations and encourage her to review as many breast lift before and after photographs as possible. As a part of health evaluation, the surgeon may order specialized mammograms in some cases.


Prior to the Surgery

To prepare for breast lift surgery, the patient will have to follow certain guidelines, which may include:

  • Quit smoking for a specified period before and after the surgery to mitigate the risk of complications and slow healing.
  • Avoid taking blood thinners, herbal supplements, vitamins, and certain other medications for a few days as advised by the surgeon.
  • Re-schedule any prescription drugs in consultation with the primary care physician.
  • Arrange for aftercare and transportation to return home after the breast lift surgery.
  • Apply in advance for leave at the workplace for at least one week.
