Questions to Ask: It’s important to have all your questions addressed before undergoing a breast lift. Here are some key questions to ask Dr Veerle Rotsaert during your consultation:
Breast lift surgery is typically performed under general anaesthesia to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the procedure.
The duration of a breast lift procedure can vary depending on factors such as the extent of correction required and any additional procedures performed in combination. On average, breast lift surgery typically takes approximately two to three hours. Dr. Rotsaert will provide you with a more accurate estimate during your consultation, tailored to your specific needs.
Following a breast lift surgery performed by Dr. Veerle Rotsaert, patients can expect significant improvements in breast shape, position, and overall appearance. The breasts will appear uplifted, rejuvenated, and aesthetically pleasing.
To ensure optimal healing and long-lasting results, it is crucial to follow the post-operative care instructions provided by Dr. Rotsaert’s team. This includes wearing supportive garments, adhering to medication schedules, and attending scheduled follow-up appointments to monitor progress.
The recovery time following breast lift surgery varies from patient to patient. While each individual heals at their own pace, most patients can gradually resume normal activities within a week or two. However, it is crucial to avoid strenuous exercises and heavy lifting for a few weeks to allow your body sufficient time to heal properly.
Scarring is an inherent aspect of any surgical procedure, including breast lift surgery. Nevertheless, Dr. Rotsaert implements advanced surgical techniques and strategic incision placement to minimize scarring and achieve the most discreet outcome possible. Over time, the scars will naturally fade and become less noticeable. Comprehensive scar management instructions and treatments will be provided to promote optimal healing and minimise the visibility of scars.
