For many women, breast reduction can be a life-changing procedure. Very large breasts can result in chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, and they can significantly impede an active lifestyle. Breast reduction can eliminate these issues once and for all.
For some women, Dr. Shuster is able to achieve excellent results using liposuction alone. For the right candidate, this procedure offers a variety of benefits compared to traditional breast reduction:
- Virtually no scar
- Shorter procedure that is completed in approximately one hour
- Shorter recovery period
- Reduced risk of complications
Your Breast Reduction with Liposuction Procedure
Breast reduction with liposuction only eliminates excess fat in the breast region and does not address sagging issues. For this reason, the technique is most effective for women who only need to remove a small amount of excess breast tissue and who have minimal sagging issues.
Your breast reduction with liposuction procedure is performed on an outpatient basis using general anesthesia. Dr. Shuster will inject tumescent fluid into your breasts to reduce surgical bleeding and minimize discomfort. He will make two 6-millimeter incisions on each breast and remove excess fatty tissue using a liposuction procedure. Once the appropriate amount of fat has been removed, the incisions will be closed.
Due to the small incision size, you will only have two tiny scars underneath each breast. In addition, Dr. Shuster is able to maintain a symmetrical breast appearance by removing the exact same amount of fat from each breast. If you currently experience breast asymmetry, this can be corrected by strategically varying the amount of fat removed from each breast.
You should be able to return to work and resume normal activities after a week. However, you’ll need to wait about a month before resuming strenuous exercise.
