If you are concerned about the way you appear or are thinking about cosmetic treatments to boost your confidence, find a good surgeon who will listen to your needs. You may want to ask your doctor for advice on a suitable and reputable doctor or hospital where breast reductions can be performed. At your first consultation, you may want to ask the surgeon about their training and experience. Dr Lanzer can answer any questions or concerns about Breast Reductions or any other treatments you may consider.
AT WHAT AGE CAN ONE HAVE BREAST REDUCTION?
Breast reduction is possible at all ages and is even occasionally performed in the teenage years if the breasts are very large. The restriction is that younger patients tend to have more breast tissue than fat and therefore they may not be able to get as much reduction as compared to someone who is older.
HOW MUCH FAT IS REMOVED WITH BREAST REDUCTION?
Generally, we remove between 400 -700 mL of fat. I have removed up to 2 litres of fat from each breast. Ultimately, it depends on the size of the breast and the texture including if it is made up of mostly fat.
HOW DOES ONE DECIDE IF ONE NEEDS BREAST REDUCTION THROUGH LIPOSUCTION OR MAMMOPLASTY REDUCTION?
In my practice we try and always perform the breast reduction through liposuction Melbourne first as this has the least or no scarring. Mammoplasty surgery involves cutting around the entire nipple and a vertical scar from the nipple down to the fold below the breast and then a further scar across that fold. The chest is not a good area of healing and scars can sometimes be prominent. If patients have very large and drooping breasts then they may have no choice and will have to go on to mammoplasty surgery.
WHAT IS A BREAST LIFT?
Breast lift is actually replacing and moving the areola and nipple complex higher and then removing the excessive loose skin from the lower part of the breast. Breast lifts are performed if patients have a loose and droopy, sagging breast and who do not necessarily want an enlargement or reduction of the breast. Dr. Lanzer was trained in the IDEAL’s first staple method by Dr. Ted Eisenberg in Philadelphia. With this method, staples are initially used to predict how much skin could be removed.
CAN BREAST IMPLANTS BE PERFORMED AT THE SAME TIME AS A BREAST LIFT?
Yes, they can be performed together. However, the procedure is more complicated and this is something you would have to discuss with the doctor.
CAN I BREASTFEED AFTER BREAST REDUCTION?
All surgery to the breast can effect breast feeding. Dr. Lanzer’s experience with breast reduction has been that patients have been able to breast feed following surgery. However, one must keep in mind that many patients with large breasts have difficulty breast feeding even if they do not have surgery of the breast so there is absolutely no guarantee that one can breastfeed. With liposuction Melbourne there is no cutting of the glands under the skin so there is a fair chance that the glands should be still able to work once the patient gets pregnant.
HOW MANY SIZES SMALLER WILL MY BREAST BECOME FOLLOWING LIPOSCULPTURE OF THE BREAST?
There is no way of predicting the exact reduction. It all depends on your starting size and how much fat you have in the breast. Generally speaking, we aim to get to a size C. However, there is such a variation in how people measure and buy bras that one can never really talk about bra sizes in individual cases.
WILL MY BREASTS LOOK BETTER IN A BRA?
Yes, no matter what we do, the breasts will always look fine in a bra. This is something that people will need to take into consideration. as
