What Is Scarless Breast Reduction?

During liposuction, unwanted fat is removed using a suction cannula, or small, slender tube. While this procedure is most often associated with reducing fat in the abdomen, hips, thighs, and buttocks, it can also be used on more delicate areas such as the breasts. 

Although liposuction cannot remove a large volume of unwanted breast tissue and does not provide the lift of breast reduction surgery, it has the advantage of leaving tiny, hidden scars under the breasts and lowers the risk of complications.

Who is an ideal candidate for Scarless breast reduction?

The ideal candidate for liposuction breast reduction is an individual who is concerned about postoperative scarring and the long recovery period associated with traditional breast reduction surgery. Breasts are composed of breast glands and fat cells. For this procedure to be successful, the breasts should have a sufficient amount of fatty tissue that can be suctioned out with liposuction. Glandular breast elements cannot be removed with liposuction. The ideal candidate should have nipples that are in relatively good position and not pointing downwards, as significant breast lift is not achieved with this procedure.

Advantages Of Scarless Breast Reduction

  • Shortened surgery time (60 minutes instead of 3-4 hours)
  • Less trauma to blood vessels and nerves
  • Less pain
  • Shorter recovery time
  • Improved breast symmetry, as the amount of fat removed can be measured precisely

Reasons For Seeking Breast Reduction

There are several reasons why a woman might desire breast reduction. Her breasts may be so large that they compromise the proportions of her figure, limit clothing options, and cause her physical or mental pain. Large breasts can cause bra straps to dig into the shoulders, and the weight of heavy breasts can even affect the spine.

Your In-Depth Consultation

Before your scarless breast reduction, you will undergo a consultation with Dr. Parakh at her Englewood, NJ office. During this first meeting, Dr. Parakh will go over your medical history and discuss your goals for the procedure. You may need to undergo lab work and a physical exam to ensure you are healthy enough for a liposuction breast reduction. Women over 40 or younger women with a family history of breast cancer will need to have a mammogram. 

Dr. Parakh will show you before and after pictures of former patients. If you decide to proceed with the procedure, Dr. Parakh will ask you to stop smoking and stop taking certain anticoagulant drugs or supplements at least two weeks before your treatment, as these medications can make it hard for the blood to clot, interfering with healing.

“My experience with Dr. Parakh has been life changing! She is truly gifted! She performed a scarless breast reduction and changed my life. It has been almost two months and I am amazed every day and so pleased and overjoyed with the results. My procedure was performed on a Thursday, and I was at work on Monday. Activities once dreaded and avoided are now a happy part of my everyday life. She put me completely at ease with her confidence, professionalism, and superb patient care. The hospital staff was also part of the incredible experience. The best care in a hospital I have ever experienced. I traveled a great distance for Dr. Parakh, and it was more than worth every mile. If you’re reading this to choose a Dr. for your procedure, run don’t walk to Dr. Parakh!”

What To Expect During The Procedure

Before the procedure begins, you will receive either general anesthesia or intravenous sedation to keep you comfortable. Dr. Parakh will inject a saline solution, a vasoconstrictor, and a painkiller into the breasts. This solution, called “tumescent”, causes the breasts to swell and grow rigid, rendering them easier to treat.

The vasoconstrictor reduces blood loss by narrowing the blood vessels, and the painkiller enhances comfort. Dr. Parakh will make two tiny incisions in each of the breasts. She will use a 4- or 6-millimeter vacuum cannula to remove the excess fat. After this, she will dress the incisions and fit you with a special bra, which is then covered with a compression garment.

Recovery

Liposuction breast reduction is performed on an outpatient basis, which means you can return home following the procedure. While at home, you will need to change your surgical dressings as necessary. Dr. Parakh will see you after 5 days to make sure all is well. You may experience something called ecchymosis (bruising beneath the skin), but this is normal and fades after about three weeks. The breasts may also be lumpy for a period, but this, too, is normal and will improve in 2-3 weeks

You should be able to go back to work 3-5 days after surgery and return to the gym after about two weeks. Dr. Parakh’s patients are overwhelmingly thrilled with their liposuction breast reduction results. After this procedure, they are free of pain, have higher self-esteem, and can wear the clothes they want.
