Gigantomastia is a rare condition that causes excessive growth of the female breasts. The exact cause of gigantomastia is unknown and the condition can occur randomly. It has also been seen to occur during puberty, pregnancy, or after taking certain medications.

Apart from breast heaviness and a larger cup size, other symptoms include breast pain, posture problems, skin fold infections, and back pain. While gigantomastia is considered a noncancerous condition, it can be physically disabling if not treated. In most cases, Gigantomastia is associated with excess skin, nipple ptosis (sagging of the breast), which is why the best treatment in these cases is a liposuction breast reduction and lift.

Liposuction Breast Reduction

A breast reduction using liposuction is a good alternative when the patient refuses breast reduction surgery or in cases associated with mild excess skin and moderate to severe ptosis. A breast reduction using liposuction can be done either under local or general anaesthesia. When it is done under local anaesthesia, we use a numbing mixture with a local anaesthetic, saline, called tumescent, which is a drug that helps to shrink the blood vessels and minimises the bruising and bleeding during the procedure.

The benefits of tumescent versus general anaesthesia are many. Tumescent minimises the risk we experience during general anaesthesia such as deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, blood pressure fluctuation, cardiac incidents, and other risks. Other benefits of awake liposuction are the smaller instruments used, which result in less bruising and trauma and a quicker healing timeframe.

Who Is the Best Candidate for Breast Liposuction?

If you fall into one of the following categories, a breast reduction using liposuction may be right for you:

  • Patients who refuse a standard breast reduction and lift
  • Patients with no or mild ptosis of the breast
  • Patients with minimal excess breast skin

Are your breasts causing you discomfort due to their size? You may benefit from breast reduction using liposuction, which requires less recovery time than a full reduction and lift.

Unrealistic Expectations to Avoid with This Procedure

We have found that some patients may have an unrealistic expectation for the breast reduction with liposuction procedure, which can affect their satisfaction with the results post-surgery. This can include people who have undergone crash dieting prior to the treatment or experienced morbid obesity. Significant surgical liposuction is controversial due to the higher risk of mortality from fluid shifts.

We would also advise against having this procedure if you have trouble with anaesthesia or an allergy to the required medications, or even if you are a patient with a history of bad scarring or keloids.

Complications from Liposuction

Liposuction is a mostly safe procedure, especially in the experienced hands of the team here at Chelsea Cosmetics Melbourne who perform this procedure on a regular basis. That being said, there are risks associated with all surgical procedures and the minor complications related to liposuction can include:

  • Minor complications cover Temporary bruising, Seroma, allergic reactions to drugs, irregularities of the skin, or unevenness, and hematomas
  • Less common side effects include necrotizing fasciitis, infection, and local Anaesthesia risks

Negligible complications do not pose a threat to the patient’s life or affect their bodily functions or interfere with their ability to return to work.

Downtime Required for Breast Liposuction

After the procedure, the breast area will swell due to the fluids injected at the time of the procedure. This swelling will go down gradually over a four-week period. Patients can perform light activities from day three after surgery, but a full recovery is completed in 4-6 weeks.

After the procedure the breast get swollen due to the fluids injected at the time of the procedure and the swelling goes down gradually over four weeks. Patients can perform light activities from day 3 after surgery but full recovery is completed in 4-6 weeks.

During breast liposuction, we remove the fat cells, not just the fat, and that gives the patient permanent results. In case of putting on weight, the fat goes to other areas before going to the areas focused on in this procedure.

Breast liposuction is basically liposuction of the fat part of the breast without affecting the breast glands. It has no known effect on breastfeeding.

Some years after a breast liposuction, some of the dead fat cells calcify and can affect a mammography. New improvements in mammography made it quite easy to safely differentiate the changes that happen after breast liposuction from cancer changes.

A few factors contribute to the amount of skin left after liposuction. The age of the patient is one of the major factors; the younger the patient, the less likely they will be to have sagging skin. The quality of the skin will also be a determining factor, people with lots of stretch marks are more likely to have saggy skin after liposuction. Other factors that contribute to the sagginess of skin include smoking, lack of exercise, and hereditary elements.
Excess skin after breast reduction with liposuction can be addressed by having a breast augmentation or lift (mastopexy) which can be performed in a two-stage procedure

A garment is provided after surgery to help with the swelling and to decrease discomfort. It is advisable to wear the garment for two weeks’ day and night and two more weeks as long as possible.

In some cases where there is no excess skin to start with, we can achieve 2-3 cm lift by applying liposuction on the upper pole of the breast.

Results will become evident after four weeks of the procedure while the maximum results are achieved in 6-9 months.

It is important to keep in mind that the quality of liposuction is more important than the liposuction cost. We will identify the amount of liposuction required in your specific case during your consultation, then offer an exact and tailored quote.



At Chelsea Cosmetics we charge from $3,500 to $5,000 for breast reduction with liposuction.

The surgeon is incredibly attentive like you are his most important patient. He answers your questions at any hour after surgery. Before I decided on Dr Attalla I went to another very well known and publicized cosmetic surgeon. Dr Attalla and his staff have the best bedside manner and Dr Attalla has insisted on keeping an eye on my recovery, always making himself available

I have done both upper and lower blepharoplastry this April at Chelsea Cosmetics. I am so happy with the results now. It takes times to heal so you need patience. My eye areas are so rejuvenated and I enjoy the make up ever than before. I feel I should have done it earlier. Dr Mark listens to your concerns and provides the best advice. Dr Mark and team looks after you. Thank you.
