As an alternative to traditional breast reduction surgery, breast reduction can be performed with liposuction to reduce excess breast volume. With liposuction breast reduction, the procedure is shorter and less extensive, resulting in a recovery period that tends to be smoother and easier for patients and virtually no scarring. Because of these factors, breast reduction with liposuction is an effective choice for many patients.
During liposuction breast reduction, the breasts are injected with a solution that provides pain relief and diminishes bleeding. Dr. Birely will make very small incisions in each breast, through which he will remove fatty tissue with a traditional liposuction technique. This approach preserves the nerves and blood vessels and maintains beautiful breast symmetry.
