How is breast lift surgery done?

ANSWER

First, your surgeon will mark the place where your nipple will go. After that, you'll be brought to the operating room, where you'll get medicine to make you sleepy.

Your surgeon will remove extra skin and lift your breast tissue up into the right place. If you're getting implants, the surgeon will put them in and then close and bandage your breasts. You may have tiny drains in your breasts for 24 to 48 hours.
