How Is Breast Reduction With Liposculpture Performed?
Breast reduction is performed by making a few small incisions either underneath the breasts or on the sides of the breast. The incisions are made in those places in order to minimize the visibility of the scars. After that, a cannula is inserted into the breasts in order to extract the excess fat. This procedure typically lasts about two or three hours. Local anesthesia is used in most cases.
Is Breast Reduction With Liposculpting Right For Me?
If you want to get liposculpting, then you will need to schedule a consultation with Dr. Edward Zimmerman. He will decide whether you are a good candidate for liposculpting based on your needs and goals. Even though liposculpting has numerous advantages, it is not right for everyone.
Risks of Breast Reduction with Liposculpture
Liposculpture is a very safe procedure, and minimal risks are associated with getting it. Swelling and bruising are very common after getting liposculpting. Some patients may also notice that their breasts are asymmetrical. However, this is temporary.
Patients can expect to experience some soreness, which will typically last about one or two weeks. We may also recommend that patients wear a compression-type bra for 24 to 48 hours after their procedure. Most people are able to return within four or five days of their procedure. Strenuous activity can typically be resumed within one month.
Benefits of Breast Reduction with Liposculpture
Many benefits can be reaped from getting breast reduction with liposculpture. This procedure produces minimal scarring. Patients will also be able to recover faster than they would if they received a traditional breast reduction. As long as a person exercises and eat right, they will be able to maintain the results of liposculpting for life. Furthermore, both men and women can get liposculpting.
Women who get a traditional breast reduction are usually unable to breastfeed because some of the milk ducts are removed. Nipple sensation may also be lost after a breast reduction. However, many women who get liposculpting are still able to breastfeed because only fat is removed.
