New breast reduction techniques involve using liposuction to reduce the size of large, heavy or sagging breasts. Your surgeon will make a small incision in either the armpit or in the crease under the breast. Through this incision, the doctor will insert a long, narrow tube called a cannula, which will be used to break up fatty tissues. Once the excess fat has been removed, the breast size will be decreased and the surrounding skin will eventually shrink to fit its new contours. Though this technique cannot be used to achieve substantial reduction in breast volume, it can provide relief for many women while leaving only two small, inconspicuous scars in appropriately selected patients.
Having large, heavy breasts can bring about many negative and unwanted problems. Breasts that are in proportion with the rest of your body can enhance your self-image as well as improve your physical health. The surgeons at Cosmetic Surgery Associates are committed to helping women enjoy beautiful body contours and decreased physical complications through breast reduction surgery.
