Patients who have long suffered from overly large breasts are delighted to learn that they can significantly reduce breast size without surgery. I perform this liposuction procedure with only tiny incisions that do not even require stitches.
Guilford, CT (PRWEB) November 21, 2012
Robert Langdon, MD, Board-Certified Cosmetic Surgeon and Dermatologist and Medical Director at The Langdon Center for Laser & Cosmetic Surgery will be on WTNH’s Connecticut Style news program to discuss his scar-less breast reduction procedure.
Dr. Langdon states, “Patients who have long suffered from overly large breasts are delighted to learn that they can significantly reduce breast size without surgery. I perform this liposuction procedure with only tiny incisions that do not even require stitches.”
According to Dr. Langdon, the Scar-Less breast reduction is done in the office, with only a local anesthetic, and patients are back to their normal routines within days.
Because larger breasts are mostly composed of fat tissue, a modified liposuction technique can result in significant size reduction. Tumescent anesthetic solution is used to thoroughly (and painlessly) numb the breasts. Then, Dr. Langdon performs liposuction using tiny micro-cannulas throughout the breast. The micro-cannulas are blunt, tube-like instruments that Dr. Langdon gently moves back and forth within the numbed area. Recovery is rapid after the procedure. The small skin incisions heal with little or no scarring, in contrast to the significant scars that result from conventional breast reduction surgery. The breasts contract after the procedure, resulting in a lift effect.
“I look forward to discussing this procedure on WTNH in December. This is a great way to spread the word that breast reduction need not involve invasive surgery and a long recovery period,” said Dr. Langdon.
