What Is Liposuction?
Liposuction is a surgical fat removal procedure that is used to contour and enhance the appearance of different areas of the body. Liposuction is performed by using a thin tube called a cannula. Small incisions around the area being treated so the cannula can be inserted. Tumescent fluid may be used to control bleeding, minimize pain, and make the removal of fat easier. The cannula is manipulated to scrape and remove fat from the rest of the tissue and then the fluid and fat is suctioned out through the cannula.
Breast Liposuction for Women
Breast liposuction is an option for breast reduction. The procedure can remove excess fat around the breasts to both reduce size and address sagging to a degree by reducing the weight of the breasts. Breast reduction using liposuction can be used for minimal fat removal for more subtle results as well as significant fat reduction for more dramatic results. Breast liposuction also uses smaller incisions that traditional breast reduction.
Breast liposuction is not an ideal option for women with loose excess skin on their breasts as liposuction cannot tighten loose skin. Breast liposuction does not offer the same ability to reshape the breasts as breast reduction surgery. During your consultation, Dr. Shafer will ask you about what your goals are for your breast reduction procedure in order to determine if breast liposuction is a good option for you.
Breast Liposuction for Men
Liposuction for male breast reduction is an excellent option for men with enlarged breasts or “man boobs” that are struggling to find an effective way to target and eliminate excess fat around their chests. The procedure can make the chest flatter in order to achieve a more masculine appearance. Breast liposuction is also used in cases of gynecomastia along with the surgical removal of excess glandular tissue.
