Firming Breast Skin After Explant and No Mastopexy?

61 y/o, very thin. 10 days pot op explant with no Mastopexy done. Is there anything or product to help firm up the breast skin? Any good collegan cream etc.... I know there is no magic in a jar, but anything worth a try? Thank you for any suggestions! I am still wearing a compression sports bra and will continue for awhile longer.

I would recommend continuing to wear a compressive bra during your healing time, which is six months. There are no magical or special creams out there that will actually tone up sagging breast tissue that once was stretched with implants and pregnancy. If after six months you still have issues, I would suggest seeing your plastic surgeon for consultation about a lift. Right now, you need to heal.

The best answer? Compression and time. Give yourself a minimum of 6 months. Unfortunately as you noted, there are no "magic lotions/potions" for skin contracture.

    I would not waste your money on such items promising anything of the sort.  Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast augmentations and breast augmentation revisions each year.  Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.  Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Sorry, but there is no reliable cream/lotion available to help “firm up” the skin. Patience and time are your best friends at this point.

 Best wishes.

Yes an ambulatory surgery will solve the problem practicly any scar/ una operacion pequeña ambulatoria resolveria el problema

please do not  trust in any cream or massage you are going to loose  your money,your own fat transplantation could mask a possible breast cancer by calcification, i would rather choose try please a new technique: click  Google: "mastopexy augmentation 5th generation" and you will realize with draws and videos

Once the skin has lost its elasticity for any reason, age, pregnancy, genetics and implants in your case the only thing that can tighten loose skin is surgery.

There is really nothing that will restore lost elasticity to the breast skin. If there is excess skin, only a breast lift can address that. I can't comment further without at least some photos.An exam by your surgeon will be the superior option for advice.  All the best.
