Liposuction for breast enlargement
Thank you for your question. Based on your photos , I think liposuction alone to the breast would give you a good decrease in cup size. I don't think you need another breast reduction surgery.
Liposuction for breast reduction
In general, liposuction can be a good technique to reduce the size of the breasts if the breast tissue is more fatty than glandular and the nipple-areolar complex is in a good position relative to the breast fold. Liposuction may result in loose skin which could be removed with a skin-only mastopexy or scar revision using you existing scars. This may be a preferable technique to completely re-doing the reduction, especially if you don't have details from you previous surgery such as what pedicle was used to preserve the blood supply to the nipple. Good luck!

Breast reduction - liposuction or breast reduction surgery?
- It truly depends on how much smaller you want your breasts and if you will be happy if the skin is loose.
- If you want a significant redution, then you probably need surgery combined with liposuction.
- If you don't mind looseness and just want the contour reduced - and the increase in size is from fat, then lipousction seems reasonable.
