I'm almost 22 years old and I've noticed that my breasts sag badly. Since I first started puberty and started wearing bras, they still became sag-ish. I lost weight over the years, could this be a factor? What's the best solution to fix this problem?
If the breasts are truly "sagging", meaning that the areola/nipple complex appears to be below the inframammary fold, the best available solution is a breast lift. A large percentage of patients will require the placement of an implant at the same time in order to obtain the optimal aesthetic appearance of the breast. A consultation with a board certified surgeon is a must to determine what would be the best choice for your specific problem.
I am considering having plastic surgery on my outer thighs. I seem to have what is called "saddlebags." I had a baby 7 months ago and am still heavier than I would like to be, but even when I was smaller I had this problem. What are the chances that if I have the saddlebags removed, they will return?
It is unlikely that the fat removed by lipoplasty (liposuction) in a specific area will come back again. The only exception is if there is a very significant weight gain.
