Many women with excessively large breasts feel physically restricted. Oversized, heavy breasts can cause a lifetime of problems such as limited sports activities. In addition, they can lead to significant spinal issues, back pain, and even emotional problems.
Liposuction cosmetic surgery for the breast can reduce the size of the breasts in a conservative way with less pain, less scarring, less healing time, and dramatic results. This procedure is basically a special variant of liposuction and can mitigate the breast size by up to three cup sizes.

An Innovative, Less Invasive Approach
In traditional breast reduction surgery or mammoplasty, the surgeon makes a substantial T-shaped incision to remove excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin.
On the other hand, in liposuction breast reduction, the surgeon will only make one small incision under each breast fold. The incision will only be large enough to allow a small cannula, or narrow tube, to be inserted, allowing the surgeon to suction out excess fat.
Traditional breast reduction cosmetic surgery can take many hours to complete and will involve a significant recovery period. But the time taken for liposuction of the breast is under an hour. Patients can return to their normal activities within one week.
Breast liposuction is suitable for many breast reduction candidates who may have earlier avoided a surgical procedure due to the risk of sensation loss in the nipple and extreme scarring. Liposuction breast reduction only involves the elimination of the fat portion of the breast. Therefore, it does not pose any risk of sensation loss in the nipple.
Tumescent Liposuction of the Female Breast
Liposuction for reduction of female breasts is undertaken using local anesthesia. This procedure offers patients dramatic breast reduction along with a moderate but satisfactory breast lift
The use of microcannulas enables breast reduction with minimal post-operative pain, faster recovery, and a quick return to normal activities, with almost no scarring.
Liposuction breast reduction cosmetic surgery can reduce the female breast by more than 50 percent in size. The breasts also appear significantly lifted as well. The breast list occurs due to the reduction in the breast weight, which enables the natural elastic qualities of the breast to allow the area to constrict and create elevation.
The breast shape does not alter after tumescent liposuction, they merely look smaller and slightly elevated. After liposuction, the shape of the breasts is merely a smaller version of the shape before liposuction.
The results of breast reduction by liposuction vary between patients. Tumescent breast reduction is undertaken entirely under local anesthesia and is only recommended for certain women. However, for the right candidate, it can offer dramatic results.
Suitable tumescent liposuction breast reduction candidates have breasts with a substantial proportion of fat. For example, women who have experienced menopause typically have breasts with a higher proportion of fat compared to teens. An appropriate candidate for this procedure should also have realistic expectations.
