Breast Reduction – Liposuction, Lipectomy – O.C.

Breast ReductionWomen with excessively large breasts, a condition called macromastia or gigantomastia in the extreme case, may experience a variety of secondary health problems. Many women deal with back and neck pain, skin chaffing, severe sagging of the breast and even psychological depression. Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that can reduce the size and weight of overly large breasts.

Breast reduction may involve incisions, liposuction or a combination of both. When only liposuction is involved, the procedure is called a lipectomy. A lipectomy is ideal for breast reduction when only a minor reduction in volume is needed. The procedure is also a good option if you are concerned about the scarring involved with surgery.
