Breast Reduction with Liposuction
Excess breast weight and size which causes back and shoulder pain or which is simply not desired can be reduced effectively without scars.
The procedure is tailored to give uneven enlarged breasts a more symmetric appearance. In contrast to traditional procedures, breast liposuction preserves blood vessels and nerves completely. In turn, troublesome complications of traditional breast reduction surgery such as numbness and nipple necrosis are greatly reduced.
Who’s An Ideal Candidate For Breast Reduction with Liposuction?
Breast tissue is comprised of two components: gland tissue and breast tissue. The proportion of gland tissue to fat varies from woman to woman. The ideal candidate for breast liposuction is a woman who has a higher proportion of fat tissue. If you have breast tissue that feels firm, then you tend to have more gland tissue. Whereas if the tissue feels softer than you have more fat tissue.
It’s also important to note that breast liposuction will essentially reduce the size of the breasts but will maintain the shape. Therefore, women who have a nipple areola complex pointed toward the ground, who want to have it rotated upwards so there’s more natural skin that visible when you look at the breast head on, would not be a good candidate for breast liposuction.
Breast Reduction with Liposuction Considerations
Breast reduction by liposuction is done through tiny skin punctures hidden at the breast creases, the axilla and the nipple border. There are no painful stitches, no ugly scars and no need for scar revisions nor frequent office visits to check for wound healing problems.
