Breast Reduction Mammaplasty Wet Technique

breast reduction with wet tumescent technique is like tumescent suction lipectomyThe wet technique can result in breast sculpture with:

  • Less blood loss and bleeding
  • Less bruising
  • Less swelling after surgery
  • Less after surgery discomfort
  • Lower chance needing drains after surgery

Deep sedation means that patients are heavily sedated and sleeping during their breast reduction surgery.

Breast reduction surgery can be done with a wet Tumescent Technique. A dilute solution of local anesthetic and epinephrine injected early during the operation changes the nature of the surgery. This is similar to the methods used during tumescent liposuction or super-wet suction lipectomy. This is also similar to male breast reduction with tumescent technique (warning graphic images). The wet technique can be adapted for use with breast reduction alone or when liposuction is part of the surgical sculpture.

When Dr. Bermant can use a tumescent or superwet method, there seems to be even less bruising. In breast reduction surgery. Full super-wet or tumescent techniques can result in too much distortion of sculpted tissues. It is a balancing act between distortion and tissue sculpture. Infiltration of the fluid at the end of the operation and then performing liposuction can permit more fluid to be used. However, Dr. Bermant has found using the wet technique before breast reduction surgery has made a major change in that part of the operation.

wet tumescent technique is like the Superwet and tumescent liposuctionAlthough for years Dr. Bermant has been using low blood loss techniques, this method further decreases bleeding during surgery. Less bleeding translates into less swelling and bruising after surgery. When drainage after surgery is limited, after surgery drains may not be necessary decreasing patient inconvenience.

We take pride in the education of our patients, the surgical sculpture, care during and after surgery, and a specific attention to details.
