Many women have overly large breasts that pose considerable physical and/or psychological distress. It also restricts their choice of clothes and affects their social life. Liposuction breast reduction could be the solution to addressing this concern and improving self-confidence. The procedure can resolve issues associated with large breasts such as back and neck pain, skin maceration, skin changes, infections, inability to exercise and/or bra straps digging in. However, if you are considering the procedure, there are some important things that you should know.

  • This procedure is not recommended in early teen years as the breasts are still growing. You should wait till your breasts are fully developed before having the procedure. The ideal time may be after age 21.
  • You may be asked to lose excess body weight before the surgery because this can help in providing the best results.
  • In NYC, liposuction breast reduction is performed using the Smartlipo Triplex workstation that combines the power of three laser wavelengths, 1440, 1064 and 1320 nm, for safe and effective removal of excess fat and skin tightening.
  • The procedure involves making tiny incisions to extract fatty tissue under local anesthesia and reshape the breasts. The procedure can also address minor asymmetry.
  • Smartlipo comes with advantages such as minimal downtime, negligible scarring, and minimal complications.
  • Ability to breastfeed will not be affected because there is minimal interference with areola and no change in nipple positioning. Some patients experience temporary loss of nipple sensation.
  • Downtime is minimal for breast reduction liposuction, that is, patients having the on Saturday can return home the same day and get back to work on Monday.

Self magazine reports that a Finnish study found that up to a third of women who seek breast reduction surgery suffer from anxiety, depression, or both. However, the researchers also found that women who undergo the procedure report significantly less depression and higher self-esteem. Another study in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery reported that 80 percent of women who had the procedure rated their results as “very good” or “good” a year post-procedure.

Men have breast reduction surgery too to address gynecomastia, a condition that can cause male breast enlargement. Usually, gynecomastia is caused by certain medications, weight gain, or hormonal imbalances. The impact is largely psychological as those who have the condition feel uncomfortable wearing tight clothing or exposing their bare chests.

Make sure that you discuss your concerns with your plastic surgeon and educate yourself about the procedure to know what exactly will happen during and after the surgery. To enjoy the benefits offered by liposuction breast reduction, choose an AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery facility in NYC. Such facilities would have surgeons who are experts in Smartlipo body contouring. Reliable surgeons will evaluate your concerns and goals, and provide you with a customized solution.
