Breast reduction is an operation to reduce the size of large breasts, particularly if they cause back pain, neck pain or postural problems
Liposuction is an approach to body contouring that removes excess subcutaneous fat through tiny incisions. Liposuction can be used alone or in combination with other procedures for cosmetic, post traumatic, or reconstructive surgery. The distribution of fat is determined by three factors: heredity, metabolism and diet. Heredity determines the location and number of individual fat cells, which are fixed and unchanged after puberty. Metabolism and diet may increase or decrease the amount of fat in each cell, however it will not affect the number of fat cells or their distribution.
It can be performed as a day case. If multiple areas are treated you may require an overnight stay in hospital.
Liposuction is used for removal of fat deposits, because it is the only proven way to reduce fat in localized areas of the body. There
is no way to “spot” reduce or selectively diet away specific areas of localized fat. With liposuction, the actual fat cells are removed, making the procedure permanent. As a result the body will always have less fat in the treated areas. If weight is gained following this procedure, the remaining fat cells will enlarge along with the other fat cells throughout the body, however, your body should retain these improved proportions.
Patients are provided with a compression garment to wear after their surgery. If more than one area is treated with Liposuction, a couple of days off work may be required.Your surgeon will discuss this with you.
