How Long is Recovery from a No-Scar Breast Reduction?
Unlike traditional surgical breast reduction, your scarless breast reduction will require far less time for recovery. Breast reductions with more significant tissue trauma—large incisions, nipple grafting, skin removal—typically require 1-2 weeks of rest, wound care, and pain management before patients begin to feel like themselves again. With scarless breast reduction at The Langdon Center, recovery is typically 2-3 days. The small incisions made for the cannulas don’t even require stitches to close.
You can be back to work in days rather than weeks. Most activity restrictions such as lifting more than 20 pounds or raising your arms above shoulder height are not necessary. This is often great news for busy professionals, mothers of small children, or women who simply want the benefits of breast reduction without the significant scars. A scarless breast reduction is also an excellent alternative for patients who want to avoid general anesthesia.
What Results Can I Expect from No-Scar Breast Reduction?
Even without surgery, patients of Dr. Langdon’s scarless breast reduction experience a great deal of lift once they’re healed. The liposuction technique is capable of removing a significant amount of weight from the breasts, and even skin that has been stretched can contract and tighten.
Patients report feeling more confident in their appearance, take greater pleasure in their clothing choices, and experience relief of back, shoulder, and neck pain. Many of Dr. Langdon’s patients have said the procedure has changed their lives and they wish they’d done it sooner.
