Traditional Breast Reduction Surgery Vs Liposuction
Traditional breast reduction surgery is quite a conventional method used to reduce the size of breasts. This procedure also combines the reduction of the breast with a lift which can cause scarring due to the removal of sagging skin from the breast region. The traditional breast reduction surgery takes approximately 3 hours to be completed and is performed after the patient has been administered general anesthetics.
This surgery is different from liposuction. Liposuction involves the removal of fat (reduction of the breast) without excising any skin. Hence, liposuction breast reduction does not leave post-surgical scars on the patient's body. It only targets extra fat present in the breasts and does not address sagging that might be occurring in the patient's breast.

1. Relieves shoulder, neck, and back pain
2. Will make it easier for you to exercise and eliminate annoying chest rashes

Breast Reduction Liposuction Surgery
Breast reduction liposuction is a procedure that only takes about an hour to perform. This surgery is suitable for women who want to remove a small amount of tissue from their breasts. As this surgery does not involve treatment of sagging breasts, there is minimal scarring and the recovery is faster when compared to a traditional breast reduction.
Over the past two decades, Liposuction has swiftly become the most common surgical procedure in plastic surgery. As liposuction is a very efficient way of getting rid of stubborn and excessive body fat, its popularity everywhere in the world is not surprising. Female patients that complain of excess deposits of fat on their breasts are suitable for breast reduction liposuction. Breast liposuction side effects are minimal and have a huge success rate.

Many women would like to reduce their breasts to average size but a few women would like to reduce them even more. The right size for breasts varies from female to female and usually depends on personal preference. The suitable technique for breast reduction depends on personal preference as well as breast composition, physical condition, medical history, and other such factors. A mammogram or ultrasound is also required in some cases to understand the composition of the breasts of a patient better.
If the patient's breast only contains excess fat tissue (instead of excess skin), liposuction is an ideal procedure for them. Liposuction is suitable for patients who want amazing results with minimal scarring and a quicker recovery period.
