    Liposuction for Breast Reduction

    Some women have breasts that are too large and heavy, causing pain in their back and shoulders due to the weight that needs to be supported. Liposuction can be used to reduce the breasts and alleviate suffering.  It is a minimally invasive procedure that leaves no scars or marks afterward because the insertion points are so small. Many women have been helped to a better life through this procedure.

    Here is what will happen when you go in for breast reduction liposuction.

    • The breasts will be measured by volume using a beaker.
    • Lines will be drawn on the breast – usually in indelible ink so they don’t wear off before they can be of use. These lines will help the surgeon know where the fat should be removed from.
    • A tiny needle is used to administer anaesthetic at the points where the cannula will be inserted, so you won’t feel much after that. The incisions are called adits.

    The Story of Fat After Liposuction

    As you are probably already aware, liposuction is not a procedure that is done to reduce your weight, even though it is basically taking fat from your body. It is done to give your body a nice, contoured shape. Liposuction is a permanent thing, with no more fat bumps in the area that was treated.  So what happens if you gain weight after the treatment?

    First of all, once a person reaches puberty they have all the fat cells they are going to have; the body does not create new ones.  Fat is stored in your fat cells from the glucose you ingest from meals and snacks. The body converts glucose –or sugar – to fat and stores it if it is not used to produce energy.  When the fat cells are removed during liposuction, no more fat can be stored in that place. This is both good news and bad news.
