Crater deformity question?
« on: February 24, 2013, 11:44:32 AM »
So um I know if you remove too much of the gland in surgery you'll most possibly get a crater deformity.
But what if you had little/no body fat and removed the entire gland? Would you get a crater deformity then? I mean, is there naturally a crater in your pectorals?

The best defense against a crater deformity is to go to an experienced gyne surgeon.  The first and foremost thought in his mind would be to prevent a crater or to deal with it at the time of surgery.  And yes, there is always some tissue in the surrounding area to deal with a crater at the time of surgery.

I would start by seconding Dr.Jacobs. The concept is quite simple remove the appropriate amount of tissue without removing too much. A good analogy would be  having a palette with pigments and then placing the pigments on a canvass to look like the subject you are painting. The concept is very simple, the devil is in the details.
