Safe, Surgical Breast Lift & Reduction
Lift Breasts or Reduce Breast Volume
Enhancing your breasts can be accomplished through a variety of different breast operations. While breast augmentations using implants are often the most common, there are other ways to enhance your breasts. For example, breast lifts are an excellent surgery for lifting the breasts into a more youthful position, improving your breast symmetry and shape. Another example is breast reduction for anyone struggling with breasts that are too large in volume to a point that is painful, you can reduce the breast tissue with a reduction surgery. Dr. Altman performs both breast lifts and reductions in his Altman Aesthetic Center Med Spa. With over 20 years of experience, Dr. Altman has perfected this surgery and performs it in such a way that involves LESS pain and NO downtime.

Breast Lift & Reduction: Aftercare & Recovery
After surgery, you will wake up and recover in a quiet room with a dressing on your chest. Often, you will have a dressing over the stitches, such as tape or glue. There will also be some kind of gauze padding and a bra or ACE wrap to support your breasts and provide compression. The doctor will give you detailed instructions on how to take care of your dressing in terms of when to change them, etc.
In general, your first week after surgery will involve some moderate pain in the breasts and around the sides of your chest. Some people report feeling sore, but some medication makes the pain tolerable.
You should take it easy for one week after your surgery. After that, taking short walks, moving slowly, and caring for yourself will help you recover quickly. It is important that you do not exercise or do any vigorous activities during this time. You will need to get plenty of sleep and rest. You should sleep on your back or consider sitting up on a recliner or on a couch with pillows for support until you are fully healed and can return to normal sleeping.
