“For the right patient, a liposuction-based breast reduction can relieve symptoms related to large breasts while improving shape.”
– Dr. Pratt
Historically, breast reduction surgery has involved large incisions around the nipple/areola and under the natural curve of the breast, with permanent, visible scarring. However, in select patients, a minimally invasive technique can achieve comparable results. This “closed” technique (using liposuction) may be an option for those with breasts that aren’t too large or pendulous, those comprised of more fatty tissue than breast tissue, and those with good skin elasticity. Furthermore, SmartLipo™ can be added to further tighten the skin and possibly achieve more lift than using liposuction alone.
The Minimally Invasive Breast Reduction Procedure
The best candidates for minimally invasive breast reduction are women with breasts that contain a large percentage of fat. Liposuction reduces the size of the breasts by eliminating excess fat. The procedure is done under local tumescent anesthesia and the scarring is minimal. There are small incisions made under the breast that are hardly noticeable after surgery. The breast retains its normal sensation and appearance after the breast size reduction.
Recovery from a minimally invasive breast reduction is similar to recovery from liposuction. You will experience swelling and occasional bruising but will otherwise be able to return to normal activities fairly quickly with a supportive bra in place.
