Scarless Breast Reduction Surgery
Who is a Candidate for Scarless Breast Reduction?
Any patient who desires to reduce the size of their breasts may be a candidate for the scarless breast reduction. All potential patients need to be evaluated by our Doctors to make sure that the breast is comprised on a majority of fat and not just all breast tissue before the procedure can be scheduled. Older patients who are overweight with breasts that are large and cause back and shoulder pain are excellent candidates.
How is the Procedure performed?
The procedure is performed under local tumescent anesthesia with 2 small incisions made under each breast. A small cannula is used to reduce the size of the breasts and remove the unwanted fat and breast tissue. This procedure results in a lift of 1-2 inches after the procedure is performed. During the procedure the patient may feel some pressure and minimal discomfort, but this is a well-tolerated procedure when performed in our hands.
What kind of Results can I expect?
Most of our patients are very pleased with the results of this procedure. It has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of all the procedures that we perform in our office. Patients enjoy the fact that they can go back to work in a few days and that the recovery period is very short. They also are very pleased that there is no cutting around the nipple (like traditional breast reduction surgery), and that their nipple sensation remains intact. This is one of the complications of the traditional breast reduction surgery that our patients our happy they don’t have to experience.
What other Options are there for Breast Reduction?
The traditional breast reduction surgery procedure is also an option. This involves a hospital admission and must be done under general anesthesia. This is a much more involved procedure with weeks to months of downtime. It has numerous complications that can occur. We do not offer this procedure, but some of the patients we see aren’t candidates for our scarless breast reduction and will need to be referred to have the traditional procedure performed.
What is the Cost of the Scarless Breast Reduction?
The cost of the scarless breast reduction starts at $5,000 and increases from there depending on the individuals breast size and requirements of each patient. This cost is all inclusive of surgical facility fees, anesthesia, blood work, garment, and arnica to prevent bruising.
