Changes of the breast are variable among massive weight loss patients. Some patients lose so much volume in their breasts that they require a breast enhancement with an implant. If they also have very lax skin and their nipple areola position is very low, then they may require a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure. Some patients’ breasts remain quite large and require a breast reduction. Again, the surgery has to be individualized for each patient. The surgical procedure usually takes between two to four hours with a recuperation time of one to two weeks.
