How painful is breast lift surgery? Under what kind of anesthesia is the surgical procedure performed and how much will the pain last after the mastopexy?
The breast lift procedure is painless as it is performed under general anesthesia, so the patient won't feel anything during surgery. The breast will be sore and sensitive for 2 or 3 days after the procedure, the pain being the strongest during the first 48 hours, but will subside each day being also controlled with pain killer medication. You will also experience bruising and swelling, even numbness around the nipple area as well as shooting pain, but this should disappear within several weeks (around 6 weeks).
Most patients can return to work after two weeks or so, but should definitely avoid strenuous movements and overhead lifting to reduce pain. The Renew Skin & Health Clinic specialist or surgeon will help you with advice and any information necessary for successful, long-term, risk-free results!
