Post-Operative Breast Lift Healing
Remember that all surgical procedures carry some degree of risk Any breast operation can result in changes in sensation. #Hypertrophic or #keloid scars can be a problem. The worst are usually under the breast with an #AnchorLift or inverted “T”. These can be treated like all thickened scars with re-excision, laser, kenalog/5-FU injections, creams, silicone strips and other methods to reduce and improve healing.
You can take some time to care for your scars and allow a little more time for healing, but if your concerns continue I would recommend contacting your surgeon right away to schedule an appointment to ensure the healing is progressing properly and no revisions are needed. Best of luck to you!
Breast lift - is bruising normal

Breast lift and implant augmentation bruising
Unfortunately, it is not ideal or normal to have such a large bruise. However, you will likely heal well regardless. Please visit your surgeon ASAP to make sure it is just a bruise and there is no evidence of anything else going on.
Best of luck!
