According to your BMI, you are overweight and because of this may have a higher complication rate. However, if you are healthy and cleared by a doctor, I will sometimes perform this type of procedure on women since it also allows you to start exercising and being more active whereas the size of your breasts now might inhibit this. I perform a liposuction breast lift/reduction known as Breast LipoLift®. This specialized technique spares more nerves and blood supply as well as removes tissue from the areas you don't want such as near the armpit and the lower portion hanging near your stomach. Once I use this to shape the breast, I then remove the excess skin to tighten the breast and create a more proportional silhouette with better cleavage. This procedure is also more accurate than traditional breast lifts or reductions since I use 3D measurements to uncover size asymmetries. During the procedure, I remove exactly what more from the larger side to get as close to symmetry as possible. Since I perform this less invasively the recovery time is faster and drains are not necessary. Over 90% of my patients are out to dinner the next evening taking only Advil and Tylenol if even needed. The size would depend on the proportion of your body versus going for a cup size. It has been proven to have fewer complications than traditional breast reduction and should not affect nipple sensation, mammograms, cancer risk or breastfeeding.
I'm 5'4" and 213 pounds. Am I at a good/healthy weight for a breast reduction?
