QUESTION

After I have Breast Reduction Surgery Will my Breasts Fall Down?

I had breast reduction surgery last year, and my husband always say that my breast are falling down. To me they seem the same. Is it true the breast can come down for a period of time ?

ANSWER

Recurrent breast ptosis

Thanks for your question - Recurrence of breast sag or ptosis can happen after breast reduction. Things that increase the chances of this happening include breast feeding, weight gain and loss and poor tissue quality as well as time. Usually people get the benefit of a lift after a breast reduction that lasts more than a year but there are many factors. Seek advice from your surgeon to discuss your concerns. I hope this helps.
