- 211 Downloads
Breast reduction surgery is known to be more effective than medications, diet, or support bras in relieving the suffering from excessively large breasts. Liposuction-only breast reduction, without surgery, is effective for eliminating symptoms and significantly reduces scarring and complications. The procedure allows women to maintain nipple sensation and the ability to breast-feed. The author describes his technique, results, and new observations over a 2-year period.
The results from the charts and photos of all patients in the study group were retrospectively reviewed.
The patients were very satisfied with the results of their treatment. New observations are detailed. Complications were minimal. No cases of increased ptosis resulted from suction.
Breast liposuction is an excellent technique that reduces scars, complications, recovery, and costs. It is a technique that should be readily available to women in every society.
