What is Scarless Breast Reduction?

Scarless Breast Reduction Candidates, Salt Lake City, UT, Dr. Yates Scarless breast reduction, also called liposuction breast reduction, uses liposuction to remove excess fat from the breasts. Unlike traditional breast reduction surgery, which involves significant incisions, this method requires only small incisions for the liposuction cannula, meaning less visible scarring and a quicker recovery time.

Who is a Good Candidate for Scarless Breast Reduction?

Let’s explore the key factors that make someone a good candidate for scarless breast reduction.

  • Breast Composition: You are a good candidate if your breasts primarily contain fatty tissue. Liposuction is effective at removing fat but not glandular tissue. If your breasts have a lot of glandular tissue, traditional methods might be more suitable.
  • Breast Size: This method is great for people who want to make their breasts a bit smaller, not a lot smaller. If you require a significant reduction, traditional surgery may provide better results.
  • Skin Elasticity: Good skin elasticity is important for this procedure. After fat removal, your skin needs to shrink and reshape to your new breast size. Younger patients or those with naturally elastic skin usually have better outcomes.
  • General Health: You should be in good overall health, without conditions that could complicate surgery or recovery. Conditions such as diabetes, heart disease, or severe obesity might affect your candidacy.
  • Non-SmokersSmoking can slow down healing and make it more likely for problems to occur. If you smoke, you will need to quit well before and after the procedure to ensure the best possible recovery and results.
  • Realistic Expectations: Scarless breast reduction can significantly improve comfort and appearance, but understanding the limitations and potential results will help you be satisfied.
