Is your breast size causing you back or neck pain or general discomfort?
The decision to reduce your breasts can be an emotional one, which is why our expert surgeons at Chelsea Cosmetics provide you with all the information and support you need during this procedure.
There are various reasons why women may consider breast reduction, such as very large breasts and or sagging breasts.
Breast liposuction can help reduce size for large breasts in women.
Breast reduction earlier used to be called mammoplasty.
Mammoplasty used to involve making incisions in areas of the breasts, causing the nipples to elevate and also led to the skin getting loose. It was also a very invasive technique. However, with the introduction of tumescent technique in breast liposuction women no longer need to go through mammoplasty and its disadvantages.
How does breast liposuction work?
Tumescent technique is the latest breakthrough in cosmetic surgery. Unlike mammoplasty where areas of the breasts had to be cut out, this new method of liposuction is much simpler and minimally invasive.
In this technique of breast liposuction, diluted anaesthetic is infused into the treated area. This fluid fills up the fat deposits and starts softening and breaking it down. It also make the area numb. All this makes it easy for your cosmetic surgeon to remove the excess fat.
How Many Cup Sizes Can I Go Down with breast liposuction?
During your consultation our cosmetic surgeon will examine your breasts and determine the size to which they can be reduced during the procedure. You can freely discuss the outcome you desire. However the results and size of reduction can vary for each patient. In tumescent liposuction more size reduction is generally possible in women who have had children, as breasts have more fat after childbirth.
Above all end results always vary based body type and you doctor will give you a realistic picture of the final outcome.
Do breasts sag after breast liposuction?
Sagging breasts is a big concern in women who are considering breast liposuction. During the liposuction procedure tiny canals are formed which constrict and close post surgery. This causes the breasts to become smaller in size and are lighter than before. This results in the breasts becoming smaller, tighter, upright and raised. The extent of breasts raising will depend on how saggy they were prior to the breast liposuction procedure.
Tumescent liposuction, Micro-cannulae and superficial liposuction are the 3 liposuction techniques that are considered the chosen methods for breast liposuction.
It is imperative that we mention that breast liposuction outcomes vary from one patient to another. It is also highly recommended to follow a healthy and balanced diet and exercise regime.
