Liposuction alone as a treatment of breast hypertrophy has been mentioned in the literature for the past decade but has been limited in its application. Our experience in over 350 cases has shown that liposuction breast reduction is an excellent method of breast reduction when applied to the proper patient. The techniques involved in liposuction breast reduction mirror those used in standard liposuction cases, so most plastic surgeons will find the learning curve for this procedure to be very easy. Complications are infrequent and the recovery is rapid and easy. Liposuction breast reduction affords a rapid procedure with minimal complications and easy recovery and can provide a useful alternative to traditional breast reduction surgery in many patients.
