Breast sagging can be natural, but it can also occur after breastfeeding. Usually, these drooping breasts are operated on both sides at the same time under general anesthesia, but there are cases where people do not want to receive general anesthesia or want to perform under local anesthesia for other reasons.
In our clinic, the treatment of drooping breast can be done under local anesthesia. In that case, due to the limited amount of anesthetic, surgery is performed on each side. Since it is a one-day surgery, you can go home immediately after the surgery.
Surgery for a ptosic (sagging) breast involves removing the skin around the areola, as well as removing the lower part of skin and adipose tissue, depending on the degree of ptosis. In some cases, liposuction is also used (in breasts with high fat content).
