PURPOSE :

Lifting and plastic surgery of breasts. This procedure is performed in women who are pleased with the size of their breasts, but not with the shape the breasts may have taken due to time, childbearing/breastfeeding, or rapid weight loss.

PROCEDURES :

anesthesia : general
procedure: skin is removed from the area surrounding the auroles, which leaves a small circular scar. This procedure may be combined with breast augmentation or reduction.

POST OPERATIVE CARE :

If breast augmentation or reduction is not performed during this procedure, the patient may resume her normal activities quickly. A special bra must be worn for 4-6 weeks. The stitches are removed 10 days postoperatively.

The patient must quit smoking at least 2 weeks prior to the procedure, and no medications affecting coagulation may be used (ex. Aspirin). The patient must be in overall good health, and laboratory test results must be within normal limits. Emotional unsteadiness and lack of specific expectations (or unrealistic expectations), of the final effect of the procedure on the part of the patient may be contraindications for going ahead with the surgery.
