How Long Does a Breast Reduction Surgery Take?

December 10, 2022

Large breasts can cause much more than an inconvenience. Women with large breasts can experience pain, embarrassment, and trouble doing activities they enjoy. Breast reduction surgery can remove excess volume for smaller, more lifted breasts. 

What is Breast Reduction Surgery?

Breast reduction helps women with large breasts achieve the smaller, more comfortable size they want. Large breasts contain a combination of breast tissue and fat, with fat making up most of the excess volume. A traditional breast reduction requires skin incisions around the areola and under the breast. It is used to surgically remove (excise) excess skin and breast tissue.

How Does No-Scar Breast Reduction Work? 

Traditional breast reduction leaves scars and requires several weeks of recovery. Dr. Langdon performs No-Scar Breast Reduction, a minimally invasive technique, to reduce your breast size significantly and with downtime of only two or three days!. He will inject a combination of saline and local anesthetic into your breasts, then perform liposuction using a micro-cannula and tiny incisions. Without the extra weight, your breasts will rebound and tighten naturally with no significant scarring. 

How Long Does a Breast Reduction Surgery Take?

Dr. Langdon will perform your procedure with local anesthesia, letting you avoid the risks and costs of general anesthesia. The procedure usually takes two to three hours, although each surgery is unique. You will not feel any discomfort during No-Scar Breast Reduction, and recovery happens much more quickly than with a traditional breast reduction. 

What are the Benefits of Breast Reduction?

Women who have breast reduction can experience mental and physical benefits, including:

Be More Active

Large breasts can make jogging or playing sports uncomfortable. After breast reduction, you can engage in all your favorite activities without worrying. 

Feel More Confident

If you have large breasts, you may be used to feeling self-conscious. Breast reduction will make you feel like people notice you, not your breasts. 

Freedom From Pain

Back, neck, and shoulder pain can be a fact of life when you have large breasts. Fortunately, a breast reduction will relieve pain and restore better balance

What is Recovery Like From a Breast Reduction?

Recovery from No-Scar Breast Reduction takes much less time than traditional methods. You might have some minor swelling after the procedure. Most people can go back to work within two or three days. You will only have a few tiny incisions that will mostly heal in one week. 

Am I a Good Candidate for a Breast Reduction?

Good candidates for breast reduction are bothered by the size of their breasts and want to see smaller, more lifted ones. Candidates should have no major health problems and reasonable expectations. Dr. Langdon will determine whether No-Scar Breast Reduction can give you the results you want.  

Dr Langdon changed my life ! From the first consult with his staff nurse Carol, to meeting him and discussing my concerns, and then to the day of the procedure, I felt very at ease and that this was the right procedure for me. I did my research very carefully for the lipo breast reduction and also consulted with other practices before I saw Dr. Langdon. For all you gals out there who want to get the weight of your chest, but aren’t up to the drudgery of having a full breast reduction, do yourself a favor by consulting with Dr Langdon to see if you are a good candidate for this procedure. He made it seamless and easy, and after only one week I am feeling so much lighter. He absolutely knows what he is doing, and is a very pleasant person to boot. The girls in his office are great, and make you feel very welcome. There is no Barbie Doll syndrome there. Thank You Dr Langdon for your work, I now feel that I can continue my goal of weight loss knowing that my body is now more proportional and it will be easier to get out there and work on my goals without carrying all that topside weight!
