This patient had a shortened scar technique that eliminated the medial (central) component of the under breast scar. The central chest is a region that tends have poor scars. Avoiding the incision here is nice when possible. Not all patients are candidates for a shortened scar. It depends on many factors such as the degree of excess skin and amount of breast tissue.

The fold of fat under the skin was sculpted with liposuction. Breast glandular tissue is not well managed by liposuction and is usually best reduced with excision. Fat of the breast or surrounding regions can be shaped with suction lipectomy. The breasts are three dimensional structures. Liposuction permits contouring of this patients fatty under arm folds.

Any liposuction can cause bruising. Bruising was minimized by using the wet technique. This bruising seen here is typical what Dr. Bermant has seen when using a tumescent method. In breast reduction surgery, superwet or tumescent techniques can result in too much distortion of sculpted tissues. It is a balancing act between distortion and tissue sculpture. Notice the limited swelling after surgery with this tumescent technique.
