In recent years the demand for the breast lift procedure has increased considerably, since in women of middle age or older and after pregnancy, there tends to be some flaccidity in the breast area. Even though this procedure has been an alternative to solve this problem and recover firmness, at the moment of making the final decision and setting the date to perform the procedure many women postpone the intervention because of the time involved in recovering to return to their daily activities, they may consider that it’s too long and that their mobility will be limited.

For a more accurate notion, we will give you a guide on milestones during recovery from a breast lift, remember that times may vary between each patient.

3rd day: On the third day after surgery there is moderate pain that can be controlled through medication. There will be swelling and bruising. Wearing a special bra will help minimize discomfort and protect your wounds. The day after the procedure you can take a shower.

1st week: Activities that do not require much effort are allowed, such as returning to work, among other things. Avoid heavy lifting, bowing and any other movement that involves great effort.

2nd week: After this time you can resume many daily activities without discomfort. Any strenuous exercise should continue to be avoided. Wounds in general are already mostly healed.

4th week: At this point, most patients feel well and are already beginning to perform gentle exercises, but any exercise that concentrates on the chest should be avoided..

6th week: You can exercise without restrictions, sleep on your back and, if authorized by the doctor, wear a bra with rods of your choice.

 

You should also take on mind the following for a prompt recovery

  • Follow all instructions provided by your surgeon.
  • Go promptly to all your subsequent consultations.
  • Use the post-surgical garments indicated by your surgeon.
  • Eat light, nutritious foods and drink plenty of water.
  • Consider at least 1 week off from your work activities.
  • Wear wide clothing, especially blouses that do not require too much movement to put on.
  • Choose someone you trust who can give you essential care. Your accompaniment will be necessary the first 24 hours after surgery. If you have young children, you probably need a caregiver to support you in most activities during the first 2-3 days.
  • Adapt the space of your bed so that you are not completely lying down. This helps facilitate the entry and exit of the bed. Avoid sleeping on your stomach or side for 6 weeks after the procedure.
  • Limit any physical movement such as running or jumping until you are completely healed.
  • Avoid leaning or bending over to see your scars as this position could reopen your wounds.

Remember that the result of surgery depends 50% on you and 50% on your doctor. Following the indicated recommendations, you will have a successful recovery with excellent results!

At the beginning of this year we return to take the goals that could be left unfinished in the past year, and a constant is to recover or have the figure that we consider an ideal.

Of course, there are many ways to get it, and although some seem easier than others, they all require great effort. An example of this is to resort cosmetic surgery to correct certain areas and at least as it seems, surgical interventions require investment as long as it is in the hands of professionals.

A practice that has become very popular over the years and that helps people who have a procedure in mind, but do not have the economic possibilities immediately, is the savings system, which provides the necessary amount to carry out the procedure and which can be covered later with payments at certain times, either weekly or biweekly and with a term to be settled between the next 10 or 12 months.

While the payment options seem accessible to the majority pocket, the risks are latent for the following reasons:

  • It is an informal saving, there is no means by which to demand compliance with the agreement.
  • The savings system only returns the money saved, does not generate performance and in some cases an extra payment must be made to the person organizing it.
  • Not all people comply with payments on time, this leads to a delay in the time it is appropriate to pay you to perform the procedure.
  • In some cases, at the beginning of the savings, an advance payment must be made as a “down payment”, which is generally more than half of the final cost.

If you are considering joining any of these savings groups, we recommend that you have to take in mind the aforementioned points so that you achieve your goals with satisfaction. Always consider options and possibilities when considering plastic surgery.

In Baja Plastic Surgery & MedSpa we offer payment facilities without charging interest or having intermediaries.

In recent years, the feminine tendency is to keep the body with that hourglass silhouette, however, it is a difficult silhouette to achieve unless we have a little help …

With this “ boom ” on the pursuit for a flat stomach, a large number of clinics and spas have included in their procedure a treatment called Mesotherapy which promises to help reducing sizes and defining the body contour, while not requiring of surgeries and mentions being a minimally invasive procedure.

The main contribution of mesotherapy is that it helps improve the lymphatic drainage of the fat itself, which helps the loss of a few centimeters.

It must be considered that if your goal is to have a notorious reduction in sizes, mesotherapy will not give these results.

If the objective is to reduce localized fat significantly (between 2 and 3 sizes) the most effective option is laser liposuction, which basically consists of extracting the fat through a cannula accompanied by a laser, which, increase the removal of it by melting adipose tissue.

Whether you opt for a less invasive procedure such as mesotherapy or laser liposuction, always remember to go with professionals in the area, as well as ask for answers to any questions you may have.

In Baja Plastic Surgery we have more than 18 years of experience in cosmetic plastic surgery. Check our photo gallery in the before and after section and witness the transformation.

The thread lift -also known as feather lift- is being used by both women and men who want to have a more luminous or firm skin without having to go through the operating room because this procedure offer a convenient and safe alternative to traditional facelift surgery. It’s a less invasive procedure that can lift the eyebrows, lift the tip of the nose, reaffirm the facial contour and neck, as well as improve some wrinkles.

Pros:

  • Fast application treatment. The session usually lasts about half an hour.

Cons:

However, in Baja Plastic Surgery we use threads made of polypropylene, a biocompatible material that is not reabsorbable by the body, so its effect ranges from 6 to 8 years depending on each patient in particular. Polypropylene is used in various aesthetic and non-aesthetic operations. It is a painless material and is rarely rejected by the body.
  • The treated area can be inflamed, especially if it’s the face. They may also feel discomfort the first few days, but usually disappear in the first week.
