Breast Lift surgery is a quite safe and effective procedure that can help you enhance the appearance of droopy breasts and regain a more youthful, uplifted breast contour. But, like any other surgery, Breast Lift also carries some potential risks and unwanted complications, scarring being at the top.
Knowing about the risks and complications associated with the surgery you are planning to undergo is beneficial in a sense it allows you to take preventive measures to avoid those undesirable results. Listed below are some of the common side effects associated with breast lift surgery. Going through them will help you decide if the procedure is right for you.
Infection is one of the most common complications that can arise after any surgery. Not taking proper care of your incisions after breast lift surgery can lead to mild to serious infection. Symptoms of infection generally appear within one to four weeks after the surgery and may include pain, swelling and redness in and around the incisions. In case of severe infection, these symptoms may be accompanied by a discharge and bad smell. The most common symptom of an infection is fever. If you feel your breasts are unusually tender and your body temperature is also not normal, this may be an indication that something is wrong with the incisions. See the doctor immediately to prevent the infection from becoming worse.
Hematoma refers to accumulation of blood below the incisions made by the surgeon to tighten the breast tissues and remove excess skin. This blood, trapped under the sutures can lead to infection causing abnormal pain and swelling. If not treated in time, infection and hematomas could result in formation of hard scar tissues. In worst case scenario, death of skin and tissues can also take place as these blood clots disrupt blood supply to different parts of the breasts. Small hematomas can be easily dispersed in the skin using oral and topical medications as well as gentle massaging. However, larger hematomas may need to be removed surgically.
Reaction to Anesthesia:
Breast lift is a major surgery performed under general anesthesia. Your risk for complications from general anesthesia mainly depends on the type, strength and amount of anesthesia injected into your body, as well on your age and health. Common allergic reactions to anesthesia include nausea, accompanied by severe vomiting and headache. Sore throat and shivering are also possible complications associated with anesthesia. Though adverse reactions to anesthesia are rare, they are possible and include heart attack and stroke, which can be fatal.
The best way to avoid Breast Lift Scars and other complications associated with the surgery is to go for a board-certified plastic surgeon with ample experience of performing breast surgeries.
