Breast liposuction

Liposuction is fast becoming an extremely popular form of plastic surgery to reduce both the size and weight of a woman’s breasts. The main reason for this is that liposuction is likely to produce less scarring and indeed less physical trauma around the breast area. When performing breast reduction through liposuction, the excess fatty tissues are typically extracted through a medical tube or cannula. This, in turn, can help to decrease the weight and size of the female breasts and will also vastly reduce the risk of complications.

It is important to consider that breast reduction will mainly be performed by a surgeon for health reasons as opposed to cosmetic purposes. A woman who has extremely large breasts can suffer from numerous health problems which include back problems, breathing problems, neck pain, skeletal deformities and skin irritations. The main reason a woman may choose to have breast reduction surgery is to completely avoid or reduce these specific health problems, while helping her to overcome any emotional insecurities she may be going through and finally by improving the overall appearance of her breasts.

Women who are looking to have breast reduction surgery through liposuction will need to have good skin elasticity and their breasts must not be too large. It is recommended that you should be no bigger than a DD. It is vitally important that you have realistic expectations of breast reduction surgery through liposuction. It is also critical that you know exactly what to expect before, during and after the surgical procedure. You should discuss these with your surgeon and understand both the benefits and the potential risks involved with this specific procedure. During your initial consultation with your plastic surgeon, you should ensure that you discuss your full medical history and any current medication or supplements that you are taking.

When you compare breast reduction through liposuction to the other traditional techniques that are used, the benefits are obvious. Should you choose a traditional form of breast reduction surgery, you should be aware that you may suffer with extensive scarring of the breast tissues and the risk of further complications will also increase. However, through the use of liposuction you will actually find that any scarring is relatively minor. In addition to this any scars are typically hidden under the breast fold. When a more traditional form of surgery is used to reduce the size of your breasts, the nipples will often need to be realigned or repositioned, and this can actually prevent some women from being able to breastfeed. You may also find that you suffer from a loss of sensation and feeling in the breasts when taking a more traditional route. If you wish to retain the sensation in both your breasts and nipples, and also your ability to breastfeed, then breast reduction through liposuction is exactly what you need. This procedure will have a minimum impact on breast sensation and your nipples will not be effected in anyway by the surgical procedure.

It is important to remember that any form of surgery will have some potential risks and breast reduction through liposuction is no different. Some of the most common risks associated with liposuction will be anesthesia complications, bleeding and infection. However, these risks are extremely rare and in fact breast reduction through liposuction poses far less risks and a threat and more traditional methods. You will also find that as breast reduction via liposuction is typically performed for medical or health reasons, the vast majority of health insurance companies will actually cover the costs of this specific procedure. Breast liposuction is also available for men and can help to eliminate access tissues from the chest. This will help to provide a more masculine and sculptured appearance. During this form of surgery a surgeon will make small incisions in the crease of the armpit, although this will still produce far less scarring than the traditional reduction methods.

Prior to surgery, your doctor will usually measure and examine your breasts. They may also ask permission to photograph them. This is typically done so that the surgeon can refer back to the photographs during surgery and afterwards as well. Your surgeon should also discuss numerous issues that are likely to affect procedure and these can include your age, the actual size and shape of your breasts and the overall condition of your skin. Although breast reduction by liposuction is a proven and safe technique, this form of surgery is usually best for patients who are not specifically bothered about whether their breasts sag. This is also a fantastic option for any patient who may possibly be suffering from another medical condition such as asthma, diabetes, myasthenia or multiple sclerosis. Breast liposuction can be performed and the patient will not have to worry about a far larger and more traditional operation that has added risks and may be prone to further complications.
