Correction of breast asymmetry
Sometimes breast development during puberty can be asymmetrical; an important difference in shape and/or volume may exist between the two breasts.
After breast cancer surgery
Today, breast cancer affects one out of nine women. In most cases, treatment implies breast surgery. Reconstructive surgery can reduce the eventual consequences of breast cancer procedures.
Breast volume may be insufficient, following limited development during puberty, or after pregnancy or weight loss. Dissatisfaction with breast size can lead to discomfort or a decrease in self-confidence.
Breast ptosis (drooping or sagging of the female breast) can be changed by several techniques, depending on the degree of ptosis and the desire of the patient.

After consultation and clinical examination, Dr Schaepkens van Riempst will discuss with you the possible treatment(s), each with its advantages, disadvantages and eventual complications. If appropriate, she will give you more information using sketches or pictures.
The final result of aesthetic, plastic and reconstructive surgery can often only be observed at one year after the procedure; during this time, the scars fade, the swelling decreases, the treated area becomes more harmonious and natural.
In the early postopertive period, Dre Schaepkens will see you regularly until healing is complete, followed by three monthly consultations during one year.
