Advanced Technique, Minimal Downtime
The surgery to correct the problem is usually done under a light general anesthesia. It may be performed by liposuction alone, or a combination of liposuction and open technique. If the open technique is used, an incision is made at the bottom of the areolar and the tissue is removed. The surgery can take 1-2 hours to be performed, and the discomfort is not severe. Usually the sutures dissolve, and the chest is wrapped in a vest or compressive type garment for about 4 weeks. Limited activity with the arms is desired during this period.
Depending on the severity and amount of tissue, the skin may need to be tightened, usually at a second procedure months later. It will take months to see the final result as the skin needs to tighten. Fortunately, with close observation of the instructions given in the office, complications are minimal. Liposuction of the abdomen can be performed at the same time as needed. Rarely, recurrence of the problem can occur.
