Not all women think having large breasts makes them more attractive.

In fact, many women are eager to reduce the size of their breasts to ease the discomfort, posture problems or the embarrassment. For them, just the thought of squeezing into tight clothing, dancing or playing sports can be a nightmare. Breast reductions are performed by Dr. Gul Zikira for patients in our region who are concerned about the effects the excess weight of their breasts will have on their upper body.

In the past, having the size of your breasts reduced meant undergoing surgery that could take up to 8 hours, several days in the hospital, followed by extensive recuperation, significant pain and extensive scars. Now, Dr. Zikira performs Tumescent Liposuction to reduce breast size a few sizes with almost no visible scars. It is done under sedation with local anesthesia in less than 3 hours. Patients go home the same day usually with only minimal discomfort. Some patients resume work in about 1 - 2 days and are back to full activity, including sports and dancing, within a week or two.

Tumescent Liposuction for breast reduction

Tumescent liposuction is the infusion of large volumes of a local anesthesia solution into the breasts. Your surgeon uses a small instrument, called a cannula, to suction away the unwanted fatty tissue. The result is a resculpting of the breast into a more attractive size.

Who are the best candidates for breast liposuction reduction?

The best candidates for this procedure are women who desire a reduction of only a few cup sizes in the size of their breast. Breast asymmetry may also be corrected using this technique. Additional candidates include women who fear general anesthesia, women who can't spare the time of a lengthy recovery, women who have been rejected by their insurance company for a traditional breast reduction and women who have experienced regrowth after a previous procedure.

Is a breast liposuction reduction right for you?

During your consultation with our physician, explain your goals and expectations of the surgery. Your surgeon will assess the nature of your breasts, your expectations, and explain the probable outcome of your procedure. You may be shown several before and after treatment photographs of patients having similar breasts, and your surgeon will explain the treatment you can expect to receive. Often a mammography (X-ray) may be required.

Are there any limitations to breast liposuction reduction?

Yes. With breast lipo-reduction we can only reduce breast size a few cup sizes and we can not guarantee the size and exact shape of your breasts following the procedure. In most cases the height of the nipple will come up about 2 cm and the size of the areola will shrink in proportion to the smaller breast size.

The breast liposuction reduction procedure

Dr. Zikira performs breast reduction by liposuction on an out-patient basis. It is performed using light sedation and tumescent local anesthesia. Several tiny, well-concealed incisions are made in the breast fold, to insert the cannula. The fatty tissue is gently suctioned away. The entire procedure takes three hours or less.

How will I feel after breast liposuction reduction?

Post-operatively, most patients experience minimal discomfort. They are only in the recovery room for about two hours and then they go home. Dressings are worn for the first day or two. Patients are encouraged to resume normal activities as soon as they feel up to it. The results of breast reduction surgery are usually permanent but breast size may change due to weight gain or pregnancy.

Your new figure after breast liposuction reduction

Breast reduction can make a dramatic change in your appearance and your outlook. A breast reduction can make your breasts smaller and firmer. Many patients find new enjoyment in sports, exercise, dancing or even just walking.
