If you have overly large breasts that cause physical and emotional discomfort and make it difficult for you to find clothes that fit, then you should consider coming in for breast reduction surgery. It is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures across the world and results in numerous satisfied patients.

Are You an Ideal Candidate for Liposuction-Assisted Short-Scar (Lollipop) Breast Reduction?

You can come in for liposuction-assisted short-scar (lollipop) breast reduction if you:

• Have neck aches, shoulder aches, back aches, and skin irritation under the breasts
• Experience difficulty breathing and have a groove in one or both of your shoulders from your bra strap
• Find it challenging to buy clothing that fits properly
• Have realistic expectations from the surgery
• Have skin that is elastic enough to regain tightness after the surgery

What Does the Procedure Entail?

The surgeon will begin by making surgical markings on the skin of your breast to indicate the areas where the incisions will be made. An areolatome, also referred to as a cookie cutter, is a tool used as a template to mark out the size of the new areola. The diameter of the cutter ranges from 38 to 45mm.

A certified anesthesiologist will administer anesthesia and monitor your vitals closely. The incisions will then be created. The pattern of the incision usually depends on your breast size and the amount of excess tissue to be removed. A lollipop incision is the most commonly used incision. The surgeon will make an incision around the border of your areola that extends vertically down to the crease of the breast.

The surgeon will then proceed to remove the excess glandular and skin tissue with a scalpel from the bottom and lateral parts of the breasts, based on the desired breast size. The upper areas of the breasts are preserved in order to preserve desirable volume and shape. If the breasts are asymmetrical, then more tissue will be removed from the larger one. Liposuction is used to remove the excess fatty tissue in difficult-to-reach areas of the breasts such as the contours under your arms.

How Do Your Prepare for Breast Reduction?

Before the procedure, your will be asked to:

• Stop taking aspirin and other anti-inflammatory drugs, as they can increase the risk of bleeding.
• Stop smoking and consuming other nicotine products at least four weeks before the surgery to promote optimal healing.
• Stay hydrated for safe recovery.
• Stock your fridge with low sodium and high protein foods, especially fresh fruits and vegetables, and premade meals. Avoid food items that contain salt while recovering from the surgery.
