Skin pleating after Benelli lift
I am 2 weeks past my Benelli lift and have pleating of skin around my areola. I know it's considered common. What is the time frame in which the pleating starts smoothing out?
Thank you for responding!!!!

Benelli lift almost always will leave pleating of skin around the areola, the bigger the areola the pleater.
That will improve within the weeks, I hope the areolas may look better in about 6-8 weeks, but may take 6 months for 100% of the result.

8 weeks to 4 months on average. From MIAMI Dr. Darryl J. Blinski 305 598 0091. But why not ask your chosen surgeon to discuss with you?

Pleating usually resolves once the absorbable sutures are gone and that usually can take unto 6 months. Be patient. Pleating may be persistent if the amount of skin was excessive.
