Three months ago I had lymph nodes removed as part of breast cancer diagnosis and I understand that it will take a total of 6 months before the costmetic appearance will be fully known. The incision was made on the pectoral muscle and has caused the two sides to be lop sided. I am 50 years old, normal weight and have some sagginess to my skin in that area (pec & axillary). Can liposuction or axillary resectioning be performed to correct this issue if it becomes necessary and if so, what type of doctor (in addition to plastic surgeons) should I look for? Thank you.
Scar revision is possible in this area using traditional scar revision techniques with or without liposuction. A consultation with a plastic surgeon would be your best alternative to determine the best techniques to use to improve the appearance of the area and the proper timing to undergo revision.
