Is there treatment for loose sensation after breast reductin

Thanks for the query.

The 'loose sensation' as you describe it is due to the extra skin tissue that you have after the removal of the fatty/adipose breast tissue.
The extra skin cannot be completely removed without surgery.
But some exercises to strengthen your pectoral muscles would help in toning the area and prevent any sagging tissue.
However,if the reduction was significant,then exercise will not help.
Then surgery might be the only answer.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any follow up queries I will be available to answer them.
