What are the complications of breast lift surgery?

ANSWER

Breast lift surgery doesn't usually cause any serious health problems. The main three possible issues are bleeding, infection, and scarring. Your surgeon will give you instructions that will help lower your odds of complications, like not smoking, making sure you're off medications that may make bleeding more likely, and taking antibiotics if necessary.

You should also plan for the recovery period. For instance, you'll have to avoid heavy lifting for at least 4 to 6 weeks after your breast lift.
