Oversized breasts can cause physical discomfort and also emotional trauma. Large breasts place a heavy weight on the chest wall and restrict regular activities by leading to back, shoulder and neck pain, poor posture, bra-strap shoulder indentations, and chafing or rashes. Breast reduction surgery can resolve this concern. Liposuction breast reduction in Manhattan is minimally-invasive procedure performed using the FDA approved Smartlipo Triplex workstation. The treatment removes excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin, tightens slack tissue, and reduces breast size.
According to American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) statistics, after a 4% decline in 2016, there was a dramatic spike in breast reduction surgeries in 2017, increasing by 11%. Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to result in a breast size in proportion with your body. Breast reduction surgery has been consistently reported as one of the highest patient satisfaction procedures because it addresses both functional and aesthetic concerns and positively impacts a woman’s quality of life. Candidates for this laser liposuction procedure should:
- Be over 21 years of age and have fully developed breasts
- Be bothered by feeling that the breasts are too large
- Have breasts that are not equal in size, that is, one is significantly larger than the other
- Have a significant amount of fatty tissue and excellent skin elasticity
- Be physically and emotionally healthy
- Have realistic expectations about the outcome
The minimally-invasive Smartlipo workstation combines three unique wavelengths – 1064 nm, 1320 nm, and 1440 nm – that can be used individually or blended 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 Triplex offers several advantages over traditional liposuction including minimal scarring, less swelling, bleeding and bruising, faster healing and quicker recovery, and reduced treatment time and patient downtime. With this FDA approved device, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia and patients can return home the same day. However, healing time can get vary from person to person. Moreover, planning well ahead for the post-operative period and following the plastic surgeon’s post-op care instructions is very important to recover smoothly.
One of the major concerns among women patients is if breastfeeding gets affected. Ability to breastfeed will not be affected because there is minimal interference with areola and there is no change in nipple positioning. Some patients experience temporary loss of nipple sensation.
