Lowering risks related to surgery
Thank you for your question.
In order to minimize your overall risks and complications associated with this or any type of procedure, I recommend you consider loosing weight. Your current BMI is 31 - this makes you obese and more susceptible to the complications you mentioned. I'm afraid the anchor lift is not known to generate long term results. The vertical component of the anchor lift weakens the lower pole of the breast allowing it to fail and hang again. The anchor lift does not have any internal support system to keep breasts high. The Horndeski Method does. It was developed using engineering principles to maximize lift, shape and long term results. Take a look at the video to see what can now be achieved with current breast lift and reduction techniques.
I hope this helps.

For the best results seek the consultation of a plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. They have a website listing all the certified plastic surgeons. Members of the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) will all be board certified in plastic surgery and have demonstrated an interest and special skill in cosmetic plastic surgery as well.
