NOWADAYS, PLASTIC SURGERY CAN CORRECT A PTOTIC BREAST USING MINIMAL INCISIONS AND THEREFORE LEAVING ONLY OBSCURE SCARS THAT WILL IDEALLY BECOME BARELY NOTICEABLE IN THE POSTOPERATIVE PERIOD.

The operation

During the operation the breast is lifted and in the case where its volume is not enough, augmentation might be applied in accordance to the consultation and the wishes of the patient.
The operation takes place under general anaesthesia and lasts about 2 hours. It should be noted that advancements in our techniques over the past years have allowed for significantly smaller incisions, something, that compared to older techniques where the scars were impressive in length and could not be easily hidden, is very welcomed by all of our patients.
The patient stays in hospital overnight and returns home the next morning. Afterwards, it is required that a sports bra be worn for a period of 20 to 30 days. Some of the sutures (the non-absorbable ones) are removed routinely two weeks postoperatively.
