A lot of women start considering plastic surgery as a way to improve the shape of their breasts after a major loss of weight. With slimming down breasts change the same way as other parts of the body do, and this fact becomes obvious especially in clothing that fits not quite the way you’d like.
Due to the fact that the body is under the aging process the shape changes and there are fatty tissues that replace firm portions of the breast. Both men and women should concern about their body after significant weight loss because changes that occur are similar.
Loosing much weight within a short period of time leads to the loss of elasticity of the skin, and it is especially typical for the breasts. In such cases the procedure known as mastopexy is recommended. This procedure is aimed at removing the sagging skin in this body part. 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 type of incision necessary for the surgery is determined for every patient individually depending on their needs, goals and desires, and the amount of skin they want to be removed. The brown skin surrounding the nipples (the areola) is what most weight loss patients need to be removed along with some of the other sagging skin of the breast.
While this surgery may be done through a minimally invasive procedure with a scar only around the areola, the degree of skin leniency with weight loss patients make such outcome most uncommon. After the operation the majority of patients can return to their work in a week or so. They can take up their everyday activities three weeks later.
