Women that have large, pendulous and often heavy breasts can bring a new proportion and comfort to their body.
An anchor-shaped incision is used to remove fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breasts. This is a fairly involved procedure that may take a few hours to complete. The result is firmer, smaller breasts.
The day after surgery you will want to take it easy. You will wear a support bra for several weeks following the surgery and be instructed to avoid any straining or lifting. You should be back to work in a week and return to normal activities soon after.
