Quick Weight LossQuick weight loss leads to decreased elasticity of skin. The breast suffers from these changes more than other parts of the body. There is a special procedure called mastopexy which helps to get rid of the sagging skin on the breast. The aim of this operation is to get more attractive breast, which looks younger, firmer and doesn't look sagging. It improves the shape, contour and size of the breast. The surgery is performed with regards of individual approach to the patient. Doctor should decide upon the range of issues, such as what skin should be taken away and in what way the surgery should be made. All this is discussed with patient and after that the decision is taken together. In the majority of cases doctors have to remove the skin around areola or on the breast to return its shape after weight loss.
Sometimes the procedure can be finished only with a scar around the areola. However it's not like this when the patient has lost weight because it makes his skin to be flabby. The patients undergoing the surgery can start working again a week later after breast surgery. The process of restoration can take up to 10 days.
Losing Weight and Breasts SizeSkin, however, is not the only part of the breast that becomes affected by considerable weight loss. Breast tissue comes next to suffer from weight reduction, losing a lot of its normally supple and full constitution and becoming sort of deflated and loose. This lost breast volume can be restored by breast augmentation surgery that implies placement of a breast implant. Breast size augmentation is performed for different reasons and it is a surgical operation. Some small incisions around the areola, along the breast fold and in some cases in underarm are done to perform it. There are two choices for implant placement: either under the breast tissue or underneath the pectoralis (chest/breast muscle). Implant placement under breast muscle is the most common choice of weight loss patients allowing for the implant to give a more natural form under the baggy skin.
During this type of surgery either a twilight or general anesthesia are used and the operation itself lasts one or two hours. Reasonable postoperative pain is usually cured by oral medication and the sick leave lasts for 7-10 days.
