It’s a complaint many women find difficult to feel sympathy for — large breasts. But for many large-breasted women, their double D cups are, in fact, a bodily burden. Heavy, pendulous breasts can bestow a lifetime of problems for the “well-endowed” — limiting sports activities, and causing significant back pain and spine problems, and even emotional issues.
Fortunately there is an alternative to a top-heavy fate when the support bras prove insufficient — breast reduction surgery. But along with liberation from the added pounds up top, the traditional surgery also brings risks such as permanent scarring and loss of sensation in the breasts.
Enter a new approach to breast reduction, aimed at making the surgery more “user-friendly.” It’s called liposuction breast reduction, and according to some plastic surgeons, the procedure involves less pain, less scarring, less recovery and better results. “The scarless breast reduction is basically a very special variation of liposuction, and what we do is to reduce the breast by anywhere from one to three cup sizes, according to Dr. Ng.
Breaking From Tradition
In the traditionalal breast reduction surgery, called mammaplasty, the surgeon makes a large T-shaped incision to remove excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin. By contrast, with liposuction breast reduction the surgeon makes one small incision under the fold of each breast. The incision is just large enough to fit a tiny cannula, or tube, through which the surgeon sucks out excess fat.
And while the traditional surgery can take up to five hours and nine weeks for full recovery, liposuction breast reduction takes less than an hour with patients back to their full activities within a week.
We make small incisions from the armpit area and from crease below the breasts. It is done under tumensence anaethesia and oral sedation. Fat is removed from around the breasts tissue so it would not damage the breast tissue. The aim is to reduce the amount of fatty tissue only.
Post procedure: There will be some swelling and bruising for 1-2 weeks.

- Lipomatic – Vibroliposuction ( Nutational Infrasonic Liposculpture)
At Alexis Aesthetic we use the latest techknowledge from Vaser liposuction, also called LipoSelection, this is another alternate technology to traditional liposuction. Vaser ultrasonic liposuction is still a process by which fatty deposits are removed from beneath the skin to improve the aesthetics of a particular body part. Optimally, patients who are treated by Vaser liposuction are in good physical condition and are looking for a contouring or body sculpturing as opposed to using liposuction as a way to lose weight.
