Breast Liposuction Cincinnati
Women seeking smaller, more uplifted breasts without the traditional scarring can now choose liposuction only breast reduction. Perfected over the last 15 years, liposuction breast reduction is a much less invasive procedure then standard breast reduction with advantages such as less scarring, less bleeding, shorter operative time, and quicker recovery. In a typical breast reduction large amounts of skin and breast tissue are removed.
In a liposuction only breast reduction only tissue is removed, leaving the skin to contract as it heals. Candidates for this procedure include women with minimal sagginess, small to medium breasts, or very young patients. Liposuction only breast reduction can lead to improvement in breast shape and amount of laxity but cannot achieve the same results as a standard reduction. The procedure is begun by making one or two small, inconspicuous incisions in the breast fold followed by instillation of tumescent fluid. This fluid acts to anesthetize the breast and also constricts the blood vessels resulting in diminished bleeding.
A small canulae (hollow tube) is inserted into the breast and the excess tissue is siphoned away. The entire procedure takes much less time then a traditional reduction typically lasting less then 1 hour. Post-operative healing is relatively easy with some swelling and minimal pain. A sports bra is worn for 2-4 weeks and normal activity may be resumed in 1-2 days. Complications are unusual but can include prolonged swelling, inadequate reduction in size of the breast, and sub optimal correction of laxity of the breast. In rare cases the liposuction is ineffective and the reduction will need to be converted to an open technique. There are no contraindications to having a standard breast reduction following a liposuction only breast reduction if the patient is unhappy with their results.
