Breast Reduction

Surgical Breast Breast Reduction

Although many women may feel unhappy with small breasts, overly large breasts can also cause dissatisfaction and even physical discomfort, such as back and shoulder pain. But for women interested in breast reduction, the recovery time and resulting scars may be an obstacle. Women who wish to avoid the scarring that results from traditional surgical breast reduction are delighted to learn about Dr. Langdon’s no-scar breast reduction.

What is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction is a surgery to reduce the size of the breasts. This may be for cosmetic reasons or to alleviate discomfort caused by heavy breasts. Overly large breasts can cause skin irritation, headaches, and strain on the neck and back. Some women may also feel that their breast size affects their professional image, restricts their clothing choices, or gets in the way of some of their activities.

No-scar breast reduction with Dr. Langdon can provide substantial volume reduction. Because of the unweighting of the breasts and contraction of the overlying skin, there is also a substantial lift after no-scar breast reduction. This can improve sagging and result in perkier, ideally-sized breasts. However, women who desire a more dramatic lift and will tolerate increased scarring (and a much longer recovery period) may prefer the traditional surgical lift.

Frequently Asked Questions

In women with larger breasts, much of the excess volume is the result of fatty tissue. Just as Dr. Langdon can increase breast size with natural breast augmentation, in which he adds fat to the breasts, he can reduce breast size by removing fat. There is minimal scarring in this scarless breast reduction procedure because Dr. Langdon removes the excess fat by using a special liposuction technique with tiny skin incisions and micro-cannulas.

Because larger breasts are mostly composed of fat tissue, a modified liposuction technique can result in significant size reduction. A tumescent anesthetic solution is used to thoroughly (and painlessly) numb the breasts. Then, Dr. Langdon performs liposuction using tiny micro-cannulas throughout the breast. The micro-cannulas are blunt, tube-like instruments that Dr. Langdon gently moves back and forth within the numbed area. The instrument does not harm breast tissue and removes only fat cells, allowing for rapid recovery after the procedure.

Dr. Langdon’s no-scar breast reduction technique allows for minimal recovery time. Patients typically experience only mild bruising and swelling, which will fade within a few weeks. Most patients can return to work within a few days, whereas conventional breast reduction procedures may require weeks of downtime. 

One of the main benefits of no-scar breast reduction is easier recovery and shorter downtime. Benefits of Dr. Langdon’s no-scar breast reduction include the following:

  • Only safe local anesthesia is used.
  • The procedure is nearly painless.
  • Tiny skin incisions (no stitches are needed) and liposuction instruments are used.
  • The recovery is very rapid: two to three days is typical.
  • Scars are minimal to nonexistent.

You will quickly begin to notice improvements from your breast reduction procedure as swelling fades. No-scar breast reduction can reduce the size and weight of large breasts without scarring for aesthetically pleasing results. These results should be permanent as long as you maintain a steady weight. Gaining weight may increase your breast size.

After breast reduction, many women experience relief from both physical and emotional discomfort caused by overly large breasts. Common complaints include bra straps digging into the skin, rashes, and headaches. For some women, large breasts can also cause embarrassment, make it difficult to wear certain types of clothing, and be an obstacle to certain physical activities. Breast reduction can help make these concerns a thing of the past, boosting your confidence and taking some weight off your shoulders.

A no-scar breast reduction is an excellent option for most women looking to reduce breast size. Ideal candidates are healthy overall and are seeking an alternative to traditional procedures with less scarring and recovery time. For women seeking a significant lifting effect, a more conventional breast reduction procedure may be more appropriate. Dr. Langdon will discuss your goals during your consultation to determine your candidacy and create a treatment plan.
