Breast Reduction Cardiff
Pure Tumescent liposuction can also be used for male and female breast reduction. One of the main advantages of this method of breast reduction compared to others is that no incisions are made, so the patient is not left with any big scars.
Pure tumescent liposuction involves the safe and efficient removal of excess fat with minimal discomfort, quicker healing and immediate long-lasting results.

Breast reduction surgery is carried out under local anaesthetic in our office surgical suite. As well as avoiding the risks and side-effects of general anaesthetic, this makes this form of breast reduction surgery more affordable when compared to other breast reduction procedures.

Breast Reduction Q&A
Tiny incisions are made and a thin tube called a microcannula is inserted under the skin, penetrating the fat between the skin and muscle. The areas of fat to be treated are injected with a large volume of tumescent liquid before liposuction is performed. This solution numbs the area and shrinks capillaries to minimises blood loss. The liquid also causes the compartments of fat to become swollen and firm, allowing the cannula to travel smoothly beneath the skin. The cannula is then pushed and pulled through the fat layer to break up the fat cells which are drawn out by a vacuum. An elastic compression garment is then worn to help the skin contract and heal.
A local anaesthetic and adrenaline solution to prevent bleeding is injected into the tissues to totally numb the area of treatment. This will mean an almost painless fat removal treatment, as well as reduced bleeding. For patients who require relief from fear or anxiety, mild sedation can be given.
Most patients will see some results straight away. However, the appearance of the treated areas will continue to improve in the months after the procedure. Depending on the area treated it can take up to 12 months for the final results to become evident. Once the fat has been removed it is gone for good, and if you follow a healthy diet and exercise plan it will not come back.
Most of the time the skin will retract after any liposuction. Younger skin tends to retract more than more matured skin. The shape and appearance of the breasts after the liposuction will be similar to before the liposuction but smaller. So far we have not seen loose skin after liposuction to the breasts, possibly because the weight of the breast tissues that keep the skin tight after the liposuction.
This will depend on the number and size of areas to be treated, but generally between 1 and 3 hours. However patients will be expected to spend up to 6 hours in the clinic on the day of the surgery.
Patients wear a sports bra for about 1-3 weeks and can usually return to light activities and work 2-3 days after the surgery.
