Fat alone is suctioned out of the breast in a similar method to ordinary tumescent liposuction. Dr Lanzer has performed hundreds if not thousands of breasts this way.

Why do women have breast reduction?

The most common reason for breast reduction is pain of the shoulders and back related to the heavy weight of large breasts. Other reasons are a dislike of the large size and feeling self conscious. The reduction is also performed if it interferes with exercise and occasionally for rashes under the breast.

Will I have scars from Breast Reduction Melbourne?

This is one of the main reasons women seek Dr Lanzer’s assistance for breast reduction melbourne. The classic Mammoplasty surgery involves long scars. The chest is notorious for prominent scars and also keloid scars. Dr Lanzer will perform or recommend the surgical lift if there is too much drooping of the breast. Otherwise in the vast majority of cases the liposuction method is all that is required. Their are 2 or 3 small key hole nicks in the majority of reductions. This translates into almost no visible long scars.

What happens to the loose skin?

Nearly everyone we perform breast reduction on asks this question! One would normally expect to be left with an empty bag for the removal of the tissue. What actually happens with the breast reduction via liposuction is that thousands of small cannulae empty spaces are created. Due to the normal elastic nature of the skin together with the compression garments we find that these spaces all close. This means that the entire breasts contracts and becomes smaller. As a result the breast reduction also cause a lift in most cases.Breast Reduction Melbourne pic

How will I know if I am a candidate for the breast reduction just with liposuction?

Ultimately Dr Lanzer will make that decision. It’s based on the following factors:
1) Dr Lanzer will examine the breast to determine if the breast is composed of fat or fibrous breast tissue. So long as there is fat the reduction this way can proceed.
2) patients age plays a role in the amount of fat as does having children. Based on years of performing breast reduction Dr a Lanzer finds that as we age from our mid twenties there is more fat in the breast and this means more reduction is feasible.
3) mammogram X-ray and ultrasound can also help determine how much fat is present.
4) Dr Lanzer will also assess your size in relation to how elevated or droopy is your breast. His experience allows him to predict your result.
5) the amount of reduction requested also plays a role. Dr Lanzer removes on average between 400 ml and 800 ml of fat from each breast. Occasionally it is less and sometimes a lot more. If a lady wants a very large reduction say from a DD or E to a C size then a lot of fat needs to come out to obtain that reduction.
Dr Lanzer will be constantly assessing the breast as he auctions the fat always keeping in mind how much breast reduction is requested versus how much fat has been removed.

Is there anything different about general liposuction and breast reduction via liposuction?

Yes the suction if a breast required removal in multiple deep planes and layers in order to get the most even and natural result.

Does Dr Lanzer use the Vaser or Laser?

No. Since Dr Lanzer is concerned about the risk that all women can develop breast cancer in their life he prefers to avoid any unnecessary effects on the breast like heat or laser. Liposuction does not cause breast cancer. The breast under the X-ray will appear different after any breast reduction procedure and this may be relevant in monitoring breasts especially if there is a strong family history of cancer in the breast.

Why do some women want breast reduction melbourne and others breast implants?

This is an interesting question and relates to pain from heavy weighted breasts, self image and also the life timing. Dr Lanzer finds that many women have had heavy breasts for years if not decades and they just had enough. It’s been likened to carrying 2 bricks all day long. The bra does not always lighten the load. Interestingly almost immediately after the breast reduction with the liposuction the patient notices the breast is lighter and often the neck pain is gone.
