There are plenty of ways you can start preparing before your breast lift from our Denver office. It’s a good idea to take a little extra time to do so, since a greater amount of early preparation can make the recovery process easier and less stressful.*
Do Your Homework
The first step in preparation is to know what to expect before the surgery, during the surgery and during the healing process. You can start right after your consultation, in fact. Breast lift surgery is a procedure that leaves most patients very satisfied, but look at before and after photos so you develop some benchmarks for realistic expectations.* Yes, there will be a scar, but know that it should fade considerably over time.* Yes, there will be some soreness, but most women feel it’s worth it in the long run. Knowing what to expect will greatly reduce stress during healing.*
You should also make preparations for coming home well before actually going in for surgery. Make and freeze some casseroles or soups ahead of time so you have one less thing to worry about when you come home. Pay bills early, and take care of any other little things well in advance to reduce any real-life complications you shouldn’t have to deal with during recovery.
Let People Know
Your inner circle should be aware of your procedure so that you have emotional support if you need it (or even just friends willing to bring over dinner). The last thing you want to do is field numerous phone calls asking why you had surgery. Tell any concerned parties well in advance, and designate one spokesperson to fill everyone else in after the procedure.
