Liposuction Breast Reduction Los Angeles
Many women with overly large breasts would like to remove volume while retaining (or regaining) a beautiful breast shape. Liposuction breast reduction can be used as a stand-alone procedure or used in conjunction with traditional breast reduction surgery for Beverly Hills, Pasadena and Los Angeles residents.
About Liposuction Breast Reduction
Liposuction breast reduction can be a good procedure for women who only need a reduction, not a lift. This means that going into the procedure the breasts and nipples are in optimal position, have a good natural shape and only need to be reduced in size.
Performed like a normal liposuction procedure, a five millimeter incision is made under each breast that causes discreet scarring. Liposuction requires a skilled physician who understands how to remove volume while not jeopardizing fullness and shape. The procedure typically takes two hours and is performed under general anesthesia, but the patient can go home the same day.
A compression garment is worn after the procedure for approximately four weeks (your physician will tell you how long you need to wear the compression garment) to help support your new breast shape and assist the healing process.
Breast tissue usually swells after liposuction. While you will be able to see the difference in the size of your breasts immediately, it will take several months for your body to heal and for the new size of the breasts to emerge.
About Liposuction in Conjunction with Traditional Methods
Liposuction can also be performed in conjunction with more traditional forms of breast reduction and breast lift surgery, helping to remove unwanted fat. Liposuction is also a great way to get rid of excess fat that can be to the sides of the breasts, near the arm pits.
