Breast Liposuction

This is a minimally invasive procedure aimed at decreasing the volume of the breast through removal of breast fatty tissue by liposuction. The procedure involves measurement of the breast volume and planning with the patient the volume that needs removed. It is important to understand that liposuction of the breast does not mean removing all the fatty tissue from the breast as this might cause breast deflation. It means removal of a specific volume not all the breast fat.

Additional Facts

Who is a good candidate for Breast Liposuction?

Healthy patients with realistic expectations who desire smaller breasts for asymmetry, chronic neck, shoulder, back pain and skin irritation

What are Breast Liposuction contraindications?

Severe or uncontrolled systemic diseases, connective tissue disease, malignancy, unrealistic expectations, local skin pathology and pregnancy.

Note: A contraindication is a condition or factor that serves as a reason to withhold a certain medical treatment due to the harm that it would cause the patient.

How is this procedure performed?

The procedure is commonly done under tumescence anesthesia with monitored sedation. Tumescence anesthesia consists of diluted Lidocaine with epinephrine in a crystalloid solution that is infiltrated into the operative area in calculated amounts based on patient’s body weight. This is then followed by making very small incisions hidden under the breast and the armpit. Liposuction cannulas are used to remove planned volume of fat.

How long does the effect last?

Breast reduction by liposuction provides durable long term results, however, significant weight gain, pregnancy and other factors might affect the results of the procedure.

What should I expect during recovery?

Since the area is numb after the procedure, we routinely do not use narcotics for pain control and pain is easily controlled on acetaminophen (Tylenol). Also, since general anesthesia and narcotics are usually avoided, nausea and vomiting are very rare after the procedure. A soft bra or compression garment is usually worn postoperatively for 2-4 weeks or longer. Patients are usually discharged to the care of a responsible adult and recover at home. Light activity and early ambulation are encouraged after the surgery but we recommend avoid upper body exercise and arm lifting above the head. Activities are advanced gradually based on your healing.

Where is the scar?

The incisions are very small and hidden under the breast and the armpit.

I wouldn't go anywhere else!

I have been seeing Dr. Akkary since 2014. The first day I was given his cell number...that has NEVER happened before at any other doctor's office. He is genuine and compassionate and really only wants to help you succeed. I have called him so many times and he has ALWAYS answered my questions. He has performed 2 surgeries on me and I wouldn't go anywhere else! I trust him and his staff completely. They will listen to all of your concerns and explain everything completely!

Great for anything in his speciality

If you are looking for a doctor who will listen to you and explain what & why he’s going to do something, you have found him. He has the added benefit of a wonderful bedside manner minus the arrogance found in doctors ( just because they are doctors, you have met a few if you’re reading this I’m sure). In all he’s a wonderful person who if you’re lucky enough to find him, give him a call. You will have an amazing doctor who is there for you without dodging your call’s no matter how silly you think the question or thought may be ( this isn’t a paid ad I promise, you have his cellphone number incase of anything no matter the time. Sorry, but I’ve never been able to reach a doctor 24-7 without going through a answering service and even then how many times do you get to talk to them? Not many from my experience and I’ve seen more doctors than I care to think about.) he’s always able to answer it or calm your pre surgery nerves. He’s great if you’re looking for anything in his specialty and if I could, he’d be my doctor for everything, but he’s only one person so I will settle for his specific fields.
