The tumescent liposuction of the female breast is performed entirely under local anesthetic, resulting in a significant breast reduction and a moderate yet pleasing breast lift. Micro-cannulas allow for breast reduction with minimal postoperative pain, a quick recovery, a quick return to regular activities, and almost no scarring.
Liposuction reduces the size of a woman’s breasts by more than half, but it can also lift them significantly. The lowered weight of the breast allows the natural elastic qualities of the breasts to contract and cause elevation, resulting in a breast lift. The contour of the breasts does not change following tumescent treatment.
Most patients’ surgical scars are not evident following tumescent liposuction with microcannulas for breast reduction. Micro-incision scars typically fade away within a few months. Micro cannulas allow tiny spherical incisions of 1 millimeter (about 1/25 of an inch) in diameter to be made. These tiny incisions leave scars that are less than a millimeter in length and thus nearly undetectable. On the other hand, traditional breast reduction is associated with significantly more extensive and more apparent scars. Patients with darkly pigmented skin should expect small patches of enhanced pigmentation at the incision sites where the microcannula is inserted.
Benefits of breasts liposuction
1) Rapid recovery is one of the benefits of breast reduction by tumescent liposuction with microcannulas.
2) No scars
3) Reduction of 20 to 50% of breast volume.
4) Minimal postoperative issues
Q1 Is breast surgery painful?
A2 Not as painful as you might think. In fact, the pain of recovery is so negligible that over-the-counter pain medications, such as Advil or Tylenol, are adequate to manage any discomfort felt after the surgery.
Q2 What is breast surgery called?
A2 Mastectomy is a surgery in which the entire breast is removed, including all of the breast tissue and sometimes other nearby tissues. There are several different types of mastectomies.
