If you are happy with the results of your surgery now I think it is likely that you will continue to be happy with it but it is important to wear a supportive bra to try and reduce the risk of further breast droop appearing.I do wish the best of luck and hope you remain happy with the appearance of your bust.AR
Breast Sag After Lift
I'm not able to give you more information about the exact nature of the lift you underwent - most breast lifts involve a pedicle of some description, many will use internal sutures to help shape and structure the internal tissues. I'm sure your surgeon will be happy to fill you in further.
In terms of longevity of result - your breasts will settle into a fairly stable longterm position over the first 3-6months but even beyond that there will be more subtle changes that occur over the first year and a half.
How long will it last? That depends on how you look at things- the fact that the surgery took place and the shape was reset, that will be permanent. However, from post-op-day-one changes begin to take place that affect the shape, firmness and position of the breasts. These will continue for the rest of your life.
In simpler terms however you should expect the significant, positive results of your lift to last 5-7 years or more.
Breast lifts will continue to sag
Breasts can sag again after breast lift if not protected from gravity.
