Adjusts generous breasts…
Breast hypertrophy is the development of abnormally large breasts, especially compared to the patient’s morphology.This volume excess is generally associated with sagging breasts (breast ptosis) and a degree of asymmetry.
Mammary hypertrophy often involves physical and functional consequences: pain in the neck, shoulders and back; uncomfortable feeling when working out; difficulties in choosing the right clothes, and often significant psychological impact.
A mammaplasty for hypertrophy can be performed as of the end of puberty.
A subsequent pregnancy is definitely possible as well as breastfeeding, but it is advisable to wait at least six months after surgery.
The surgeon performs a resection of the excess of glandular tissue, fat and skin to retain a volume consistent with the silhouette of the patient and in accordance with her wishes. This residual glandular volume is ascended, concentrated and remodeled.
In most cases, I use the "vertical" method, which leaves periareolar and vertical scars, around the areola between the brown and white skin and between the lower pole of the areola and the sub-mammary fold.
Sometimes, when breast hypertrophy is important, the procedure leaves a scar with the shape of an inverted T: periareolar, vertical and an additional horizontal scar hidden in the submammary fold.
In addition to regular pre-operative examinations, a breast screening should be realized.
The operation is performed under general anesthesia and lasts 2 to 3 hours. An anatomopathologic analysis of tissues is systematically carried out.
The patient is hospitalized for two to three days.
