Hi there, i have not had any babies yet, so i don't want to risk having breast reduction surgery, which may affect my ability to breast feed. I have heard that reductions can result alot more safely from liposuction, but won't this leave me with sagging breasts?

Scarless breast reduction
Scarless breast reduction using tumescent liposuction can safely and conservatively reduce breast size without leaving sagging skin. A physical exam and demonstration of representative before/after photos should help you decide if this is the best treatment option for you.
When fat is removed, the skin is ultimately more loose and lax. You should now consider a lift or implant to increase the volume of the breast and tighten the skin with a lift. Thank you for your question and good luck with everything.

Scarless Breast REDUCTION
Liposuction of the breast is a wonderful option to avoid the long scars associated with a breast reduction procedure. It is a rapid recovery with minimal pain and tiny scars hidden under the breast. Not all women are candidates for this procedure because of their body build. Please contact a board certified plastic surgeon to see if you are a candidate for this procedure.

Breast reduction via liposuction.
When you go into your surgeon's office for a consultation, you will be advised if breast reduction via liposuction is right for you. It depends on your breasts and while it may be great for some women, it may leave breasts saggy on others.
Sagging breasts after breast reduction with liposuction?
Breast reduction using only liposuction can be considered for a small group of patients. Ideal women for this are:
• Have tight skin
• Desire a small reduction
• Don’t have ptotic (droopy) breasts
• Have more fatty breast tissue (rather than glandular tissue)
If the above conditions are present, than some skin contraction may result and a lifting effect may happen. Keep in mind that the more breast tissue that is removed, the more extra skin remains. So if you are hoping for a significant breast reduction, liposuction may not be the best option for you. Also, in the United States, using liposuction for breast reduction may not be covered by insurance. Finally, make sure you are evaluated by a surgeon who does both types of procedures to make sure the options offered are in your best interest.
1st of all this can help in large breast to a limited degree ,,all depends on the size of the breast ,second you shouldnt have any ptosis or mild ptosis and third you have to have a good skin texture that will have good recoil after the lipo
Liposuction For Breast Reduction Will Make The Breast Somewhat More Saggy
Your assumption about what may happen when liposuction is used for breast reduction is partially correct. As you remove breast tissue, but no skin, with a liposuction method the overall breast will shrink or collapse in size. Since the skin is not being tightened or reduced, as typically occurs in a breast reduction, the breasts will most certainly not become more perky. While the nipple will not sag (it will remain in the same position), the entire breast mound will develop a little of a partially deflated balloon look. In addition, the amount of breast size reduction with liposuction is limited maybe being a 1/2 cup to a full cup at most.

Liposuction alone for Breast Reduction limited
The indications for reducting breasts with liposuction alone are somewhat limited. It depends a great deal on the tone of your skin, the amount of fat in the breasts, and the size of the breasts to begin with. It wouldn't hurt to get a couple of opinions with consultations to be more confident beforehand.
Breast liposuction fact
Breast liposuction delivers super results, though it isn't right for everyone. If you have good skin quality and minimal sagging, you make an ideal candidate for reduction using liposuction alone. Since liposuction stimulates the skin to tighten around the affected area, the breasts actually lift a little bit. The procedure takes about an hour, the recovery takes just a couple of days, and there's virtually no scarring. For young patients with large breasts, a lipo reduction may prevent breast sag from ever occurring!
