Question: Non surgical Symmastia correction?
|Claire101 - Tue Sep 08, 2009 5:36 pm||
Completely stupid idea I'm sure.
I have a mild case of symmastia from my breast augmentation 2 years ago, other than the 'double loaf' look in centre of the implants they are perfect. Would it be at all possible medically, even 1 in a million chance! that if I wore a thong bra religiously and breast massage could the central excess skin diminish?

As you are perhaps fully aware, this is one of the complications following breast augumentation surgery. This complication is more likely in thinner women and especially more likely to occur in women with "pectus excavatum'.I do not know if you had any of these risk factors.
Wearing a Thong Bra or regular massages are extremely unlikely to correct this deformity.
It would be better(in my opinion) to go in for a surgical symmastia correction by a surgeon familiar with 're-do' surgery for this malady. Good luck!
