Choosing to get a breast lift is a life-changing decision. As such, we at Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute try to provide our patients with all the information they require about breast lift risks to make an informed decision that they will not regret.
Breast lift risks range from minor side effects to major complications and a trained breast lift expert should be requested for your surgery. Dr. Mowlavi has performed hundreds and hundreds of breast lift procedures and has never had any major complications.
As with all surgeries with general anesthesia, patients may wake up with dizziness, nausea, vomiting or bruising and soreness from the IV. Another breast lift risk you should be aware of comes unproven techniques such as the doughnut incision.
This promises the results of a traditional breast lift without the vertical incision line but results in several complications. First, this will only allow a maximum lift of 2 cm. It may also result in nipple scarring due to all the tension placed on this area from the incision.
Other breast lift risks include:
- Poor healing or infections of incisions. At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Institute, there is a strict postoperative schedule that minimizes complications involving incisions.
- Numbness or hypersensitivity of the nipples. Breast lift risks involve the possibility of irritating the sensory nerves in your breasts. An experienced surgeon such as Dr. Mowlavi will take extra precautions in these areas to ensure a safe outcome.
- Hematoma formation or bleeding
- Breast asymmetry
Breast lift risks are an important part of deciding whether this surgery is right for you. If you have any additional questions and want to know what Dr. Mowlavi does to eliminate breast lift risks, please contact us for a complimentary consultation.
