Operation: This procedure raises and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin and repositioning the remaining tissue and nipples.
Operation Time (estimate): This procedure takes about 1 to 3 hours.
Anesthesia/Pain Control: The anesthesia that can be used is local with sedation or general.
Location: This is usually an outpatient procedure although depending on the extent of the surgery it may require some inpatient stay.
Side effects (Possible): Some patients may experience temporary bruising, swelling, discomfort, numbness, dry breast skin or permanent scarring.
Complications (Possible): Possible complications may include thick, wide scars, skin loss, infection, unevenly positioned nipples, or permanent loss of feeling in nipples or breast.
Downtime: Patients can go back to work in 1 week or more and participate in strenuous activities in 1 month. It will take several months to a year for scars to fade.
