Breast reduction by liposuction and breast lift can be both achieved by tumescent liposuction. Liposuction trims down breast size relative to the quantity of fat removed. Liposuction reduces the size of the breast and allows the natural elastic tissue in the breast to retract and turn out a noticeable breast lift.
Liposuction of the female breast through the use of local anesthetics can produce both a considerable breast reduction and a reasonable but satisfying breast lift. The utilization of microcannulas allows breast reduction with negligible postoperative pain, quick postoperative recovery, rapid return to day-to-day activities, and practically no scaring. Not only can breast reduction by liposuction minimize the female breast by more than fifty percent in volume, the breasts are also lifted to a noticeable extent.
This breast lift is the consequence of the reduced weight of the breast, which let the breasts’ natural elastic properties to tighten and produce elevation. The breasts retain their shape after liposuction, they basically become lesser in size and rather elevated. After liposuction, the breast’s shape is simply a more modest version of the shape before the procedure.
The usage of microcannulas drastically reduces scarring of the tissue from the incisions and liposuction procedure itself. The use of microcannulas allows the use of exceptionally small round incisions that are 1 millimeter (approximately 1/25 of an inch) in diameter. These miniscule incisions create scars that are much smaller than 1 millimeter and therefore hardly visible. In comparison, customary breast reduction by liposuction is linked with much larger scars and more obvious scars. Patients who have natural dark skin can expect to have some tiny blotches of pigmentation at the areas of incision where the microcannula went through the skin. This postoperative side effect usually goes away after 2 to 3 years.
Other older surgical methods for breast reduction, known as surgical-excision breast reduction, entail cutting the breast with a scalpel to excise considerable amounts of breast tissue. Complications attributed to surgical-excision breast reduction include the risk of keloids, asymmetrical sized breasts, abnormal appearance of the skin near the nipple, reduced nipple sensation, and even nipple damage. Other risks consist of bleeding, blood clots or hematoma in the breast, seromas and fat necrosis with cyst formation in the breast, and scarring of the deep breast tissue that can result to mammogram abnormalities. Besides requiring general anesthetics, breast reduction by excision is also linked with considerable pain and protracted recovery.
