Severe Weight Loss Leading To Breast Sagginess

Posted On: March 07, 2014 Author: The Office of Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast topics


Four Weeks Post Op

The patient is an Armenian female presenting with severe weight loss which has caused her breasts to sag quite a bit.  Not only a lot of loose skin, but the left breast is significantly wider and larger than the right.  The patient is now post op four weeks after surgery, her sutures have all been removed, she has an excellent result, and the implants are now in the perfect position.  The patient has been started on scar cream.  Patients that have this much skin laxity and loss of breast volume should have both implants placed under the muscle (this patient happened to have a saline high profile implant placed under the muscle) and a full breast lift using the formal anchor scar called the Wise-pattern technique.  She will continue with underwire bra, Dr. Linder Bra at night for sleep, and Bio corneum twice a day.  These patients are excellent candidates for combination breast implants with lifts.
