Breast Reduction

About the treatment

You can both reduce the size of your breasts and achieve a significant breast lift through tumescent liposuction.

The procedure can be done with local anaesthesia and microcannulas, ensuring minimal postoperative pain and a rapid recovery and return to normal activities.

Liposuction can reduce the female breast by more than half, producing lift by removing weight. The process also allows the natural elastic properties of the female breasts to contract and create elevation.

Your breasts won’t change shape but will be smaller and somewhat lifted.

Treatment process

We measure the volume of each breast using the water displacement method and draw lines on your breasts using indelible ink. We then use the tiniest needle possible to inject a small amount of local anaesthetic into the skin.

We carry out liposuction of the breast using microcannulas. These range in diameter from 0.9 mm to 1.8 mm. Once the liposuction is completed, we put super-absorbent pads on the breasts, these absorb the tumescent fluid that drains from the adits.

Aftercare

After a breast liposuction operation, you’ll experience a gradual decrease in swelling over the next eight to 16 weeks. You’ll experience very little bruising thanks to the use of open-drainage and proper compression garments.

You may detect breast lumps after liposuction, but this is temporary. It may last for several weeks after the operation to reduce your breasts. You may be able to find these lumps with your fingers but they won’t be visible, and they are part of the normal healing processes.

FAQs

Will I have surgical scars?
Most patients have no visible surgical scars after breast reduction by tumescent liposuction using microcannulas.

Am I a good candidate?
The best candidates for breast reduction by tumescent liposuction have breasts that contain a large proportion of fat. Women who have gone through menopause typically have breasts that contain a larger proportion of fat than younger women.

Should I get a preoperative mammogram?
It makes sense to consider a mammogram before the operation, both in order to rule out the possibility of existing malignancies and so you establish an up-to-date baseline mammogram.

Cost

Whilst the cost of breast reduction surgery is of course an important factor when considering a procedure, it should by no means be the most important factor.

There are a number of factors that determine the cost of a procedure, the most important being the amount of time and effort required on the surgeon’s part.

When agreeing a cost for your procedure, Dr. Gupta will consider the size of the patient, the size of the area being treated, and the anticipated degree of difficulty of the particular procedure.

Dr. Gupta only works with clients who he feels will benefit from a breast reduction by liposuction procedure.

No client is the same and it is only after the consultation that Dr. Gupta can gauge suitability and then suggest a cost for the procedure.
