Breast Lift in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, FL

Due to aging or childbirth, many women find that their breasts have begun to sag and lose their elasticity and firmness. Dr. Robert Brueck performs breast lifts to fundamentally recreate the appearance of “pert” young breasts.

What is a breast lift?

Dr. Brueck will remove the excess skin that creates the sagging appearance, then raises the nipple so it is approximately even with the lower crease of the breast, creating the appearance of a more youthful breast.

If you are good health, and have breasts that have begun to sag, losing their elasticity and firmness, you are a good candidate. A consultation with Dr. Brueck will determine your eligibility for a breast lift in Fort Myers, Cape Coral, Punta Gorda, FL.

How long is recovery from a breast lift in Fort Myers?

You will need to take at least one week off from work or school for a breast lift surgery in Cape Coral, Punta Gorda. Some women need two weeks, but each situation varies. Dr. Brueck will instruct you on follow-up appointments at his Fort Myers office for removing bandages and stitches.

While you recover, you’ll need to stop physical activity for at least one month after surgery. You should also avoid heavy lifting.

After a breast lift, you should expect to feel tired and to have breast pain. This is normal. Dr. Brueck will give you an oral painkiller to ease you through the first few days after surgery. You may be able to return to work after a long 3 or 4 day weekend. I always caution people after any surgery to lay low for a minimum of 4 days – with no lifting, straining, etc. Of course whether you return to work after a long weekend depends on your type of work. If you sit at a computer screen it is not unusual to return to work in 3 or 4 days.
