Breast Reduction in Fresno by Liposuction
One of the most satisfying procedures for our Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Fresno patients is breast reduction using liposuction. This is the only procedure we perform for which some insurance companies pay. Patients seeking breast reduction once had just the old-style breast reduction surgery as their option. It involves extensive cutting around the nipple, down the front, and underneath the breast. This unsightly scar may improve somewhat with time but never goes away.

- When one breast is much more developed than the other
- For the patient who has very large breasts and has physical problems such as back pain or exercise limitation
- For the patient who is just fed up with having support-type bras with heavy straps
- For the patient who is embarrassed and doesn't like the unwanted attention that accompanies very large breasts
What our patients like most about their breast reduction by lipo is the virtual absence of scars. Most of our patients don't really hate their breasts, but just don't like the size. Breast liposuction not only reduces the volume but generally shrinks the whole breast during the healing and elevates the nipples by up to several inches. Armpit liposuction is included if necessary and our patients love this. Although some women with lots of breast tissue and little fat may require traditional Pasadena breast reduction methods, breast liposuction is a great alternative for the vast majority.
