Breast lift or reduction surgery, by its nature, is done to lift and reduce sagging skin and breast tissue. Over time the skin can become loose again, requiring additional surgery. Newly operated breast lift or reduction patients may start to droop again as soon as five years after their original operation. Sometimes the original surgeon may not have removed enough skin and continued sagginess can be seen within months after the original operation. Other times the patient may have had another pregnancy causing post-partum sagging.
Correction of secondary droopy breasts is easily done through the same incisions as the original operation and will not leave any new scars. Occasionally patients will also elect to change their implant to a larger size, which may in itself overcome some of the droopiness.
Please contact our office if you are from outside the Southern California area for a preliminary telephone conversation with Dr. Moser personally to ascertain if an in-person consultation would be helpful to you.
