This type of procedure is much more intensive than other types of breast surgeries. In fact, you will likely need to stay at the clinic overnight, or for two nights to make sure everything is healing properly. Under the supervision of clinic staff and surgeons, there is a reduced risk of complications, improperly healed incisions or other problems.
During the procedure, the surgeon will cut the area around the breast’s areola. Through that incision, the surgeon will cut vertically down and below each breast. While inside the skin of the breast, excessive fat and skin will be removed. The areola and nipple will be readjusted to a more natural position. Liposuction is also used to remove unwanted skin or fat.
