Traditional Breast Reduction

A more conventional breast reduction combines reducing the volume with a lift, which causes scarring due to the removal of sagging skin. With a liposuction-only approach, volume is reduced without excising any skin, leaving the breasts practically free of post-surgical scars. However, a liposuction breast reduction only targets extra fat in the breasts and does not address sagging that may be occurring.

A Few Facts About Breast Reduction With Liposuction

A breast reduction with liposuction only takes an hour to perform. This technique is more appropriate for women who only require a small amount of excess breast tissue removed. A breast reduction with liposuction does not address sagging breasts. There is much less scarring and recovery time associated with a liposuction breast reduction.
