After weight loss or breastfeeding, most women notice a change in the shape of their breasts. Hanging breasts are due to the loss of elasticity of the breast skin and, to a certain extent, weakness of the chest muscle.
To lift the breast, the skin-envelope has to be reduced, without reducing the volume of the breast gland. This very common procedure is performed under general anesthesia with suture removal after 12 days.
Hospital Admission: Out patient
Recuperation Time: 3 weeks
After dressings are changed on the second day after surgery, the patient will begin to use a post-operative bra, preferably one with an opening at the front with broad elastic bands.
