Scarless Breast Reduction Treatment for Shelby Township | Livonia, Michigan
“Scarless” Breast Reduction (SBR)
What is it?
“Scarless” Breast Reduction (SBR) is the newer and safer method of decreasing breast size that leaves virtually no marks of surgery. SBR has an easy recovery and can be done under local anesthesia. The procedure takes approximately one hour and is done with modern liposuction techniques through micro-incisions. The average patient will achieve a 30% or more size reduction and a modest “lift” of the breast at the same time.
What are the limitations of traditional breast reduction?
Traditional reductions have been associated with several serious risks, including wound problems, ugly scars (such as “anchor” scars or “lollipop” scars), general anesthesia risks such as blood clots and worse, irregular breast shape, and infections.
Who is a good candidate for “Scarless” Breast Reduction?
An ideal “Scarless” Breast Reduction patient wants a significant reduction in breast size without unattractive scars and a prolonged recovery period. It is the preferred method of breast reduction in people who form thick scars or keloids. While it does not result in as much lift as a traditional reduction, patients do achieve some lifting of the breasts.
Can it be performed in a male with a fatty chest?
Yes, in fact, this is one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in males, with excellent results.
Does “Scarless” Breast Reduction hurt?
No. Tumescent anesthesia is used, which renders the treated area completely numb. Mild sedation may be used at the time for a painless, comfortable experience.
How do I know if “Scarless” Breast Reduction will help me achieve my goals?
A consultation with Dr. Kotlus or Dr. Mok is necessary before undergoing the procedure. This consultation will include a medical history, an examination, and a discussion about the most appropriate treatment options.
