As a guide:
Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction is a cosmetic procedure where the amount of fat in the breasts is reduced to give patients a 1-2 cup size reduction. In some cases, a reduction can be more than 2 cup sizes for those with overly large breasts.
Through the use of ultrasound technology (Vaser) during this cosmetic surgery, the excess fat in your breasts is gently melted and suctioned out. This allowing for a smooth and natural result.
The treatment results in firmer, proportionately shaped breasts and allows the natural elastic tissue in the breast to retract and produce a noticeable breast lift without any visible scarring.
Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction is a less intrusive and less invasive procedure than traditional breast surgery.
Tiny incisions are made to allow for the introduction of the cannula. The area to be reshaped is then filled with solution that helps numb the site.
After this, a small probe is then inserted into the breasts. The probe transmits ultrasound energy to melt the fat. This also tightens the skin and heats up fibres causing contraction, and a lift in the breast. The liquified fat is then gently suctioned, to give a smooth, natural result.
This technique benefits the patient as there is virtually no scarring, there is less pain and trauma, as well as a quicker recovery time (though each patient’s experience may vary).
It avoids the ugly, vertical scar of a traditional breast reduction, which can look unappealing in women with dark skin.
|Traditional Breast Reduction||Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction|
|Large ‘lollipop’ scar||Tiny scars, which fade with time|
|Women with mostly glandular breast tissue. (<20 years)||Women with mostly fatty breast tissue (>20 years)|
|General Anaesthesia||Conscious Sedation|
|Results in ‘square’ breasts||Natural shape + Lift|
|Prolonged recovery||Quick recovery|
|2+ cup size reduction||1-2 Cup size reduction (2+ reduction possible)|
During the procedure, you will feel slight pressure on the areas being treated, but you will not feel pain. You will be sedated, relaxed and the area being treated is numbed. There is no need for general anaesthetic.
After the procedure, you may feel slight discomfort. Our patients tell us that it feels similar to sore muscles after a heavy chest workout. We provide you with a script for pain relief after your procedure. Usually patients use pain relief for the next 1-2 days post procedure.
Women who’s breasts are made up of mainly fat rather than breast tissue are the best candidates for this procedure. Our surgeons will be able to tell you whether your breasts are made up of mainly fatty tissue or glandular tissue when you come in for a consultation.
Women over the age of 20 tend to have more fatty tissue in their breasts, which is ideal for Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction. That being said, we have performed this procedure on women under 20 with great results, your suitability can be discussed in your consultation.
Additionally, this surgical procedure is suitable for women who experience shoulder and back pain, as well as other physical discomfort from having large breasts.
It is also important to note that because this procedure works by removing fatty tissue, it is not a means of treating or removing breast cancer.
You will go home on the same day as your procedure. Most of our patients return to work after about 2-4 days, although this can vary from patient to patient. You will have to wear a compression garment for 6 weeks, although this can be hidden underneath regular clothing. You can expect to be back to regular activities after approximately 7 days.
Vaser Liposuction Breast Reduction can reduce your breast size by 1-2 cup sizes (sometimes 2+ is possible), and will keep the shape looking natural. You will also have firmer breasts with a noticeable breast lift.
Vaser Liposuction removes only fatty tissue from the breasts, not the glandular breast tissue. Our doctors can assess the proportions of fatty tissue in your breasts during your consultation.
Studies have shown that Vaser technology has less complications compared to other UAL methods.
There are inherent risks and complications as there are with any surgery. You should be aware of the potential risks and discuss any concerns you may have with your doctor before your surgery is performed.
It is also important to note that post-the operation, you will have some slight bruising and swelling in and around the treatment area.
