The Procedure

  • Dr. Hasen, operating in our fully-accredited, private surgery suite in Naples, Florida, uses liposuction in a special technique to remove excess fat in the breast while preserving the breast gland, nerves and blood vessels. The liposuction can promote contraction of the skin and molding down around a reduced size of breast gland.
  • General anesthesia can be used and it takes about one to two hours.
  • The only incision is very small (3 mm) and hidden in the crease below the breast.
  • As the breast shrinks and skin contracts, it is moved to a higher and more youthful position on the chest wall.
  • The nipples and areolae become smaller and are elevated to a higher position by the tissue contraction.
  • The only dressing is a surgical bra.
  • This procedure can be combined with other surgeries such as liposuction of the abdomen, flanks, and legs, or a tummy tuck.
  • If you'd like to improve the appearance of your nipples, Dr. Hasen can easily incorporate a nipple reduction into your breast reduction. Using this simple technique, he reduces the size or projection of one or both nipples to improve their appearance.
