I want breast reduction surgery and I am wondering how it all works. Do they just do liposuction to remove the extra fat in your breasts?

A: Breast reduction and liposuction

Occasionally, liposuction can play a role in breast reduction in certain cases. Rarely can an entire breast reduction be done solely with liposuction–only if a patient has very good skin tone and a favorable nipple position. The vast majority of patients with large breasts will require tissue and skin removal which liposuction alone can not achieve. Liposuction can sometimes help improve contour at the sides of the breast near the armpit area in certain cases.

Please consult with a board certified plastic surgeon prior to planning a breast reduction.

Best wishes,
