Can You Reduce Breast Size Without Surgery? - Donald Conway, MD, FACS
It's a complaint many women find difficult to feel sympathy for — large breasts. But for many large-breasted women, their double D cups are, in fact, a bodily burden. Heavy, pendulous breasts can bestow a lifetime of problems for the "well-endowed" — limiting sports activities, and causing significant back pain and spine problems, and even emotional issues. Fortunately there is an alternative to a top-heavy fate when the support bras prove insufficient — breast reduction surgery. But along with liberation from the added pounds up top, the traditional surgery also brings risks such as permanent scarring and loss of sensation in the breasts. Enter a new approach to breast reduction, aimed at making the surgery more "user-friendly.
In fact, having large, heavy breasts can be a literal pain for many women, causing chronic back, neck and shoulder problems or unwanted stares on a day-to-day basis. If you would like nothing more than to get smaller, lighter breasts, chances are you would love to find a way to do it without surgery. This is understandable— breast reduction surgery is a big step. Weight loss can result in smaller breasts if you are carrying excess weight in general and your breasts contain a lot of fatty tissue. First, if you are already fairly lean, losing more weight could negatively impact your health.
Liposuction alone as a treatment of breast hypertrophy has been mentioned in the literature for the past decade but has been limited in its application. Our experience in over cases has shown that liposuction breast reduction is an excellent method of breast reduction when applied to the proper patient. The techniques involved in liposuction breast reduction mirror those used in standard liposuction cases, so most plastic surgeons will find the learning curve for this procedure to be very easy.
