Breast Surgery in Patients after Massive Weight Loss

Moustapha Hamdi and Serhan Tuncer

Abstract

Massive weight loss patients present characteristic breast deformities. Most of the techniques developed for correcting typically enlarged or ptotic breasts fail in this patient group, instead more complex and challenging manipulations are usually needed. Selection of the surgical technique is mainly based on the available breast volume. An algorithm for surgical correction of breast deformities following massive weight loss is presented.
