BreastTite vs Breast Reduction

Women who have larger breasts can experience both physical and psychological pain, making life difficult each day. Not only do these women have difficulty finding clothes that fit, but they can experience chronic pain every day. Several techniques exist to help reduce the amount of fat tissue found in the breasts. Traditional breast reduction procedures have been around for years; these procedures surgically remove fat tissue, leading to significant recovery times. BreastTite is an alternative procedure that uses state-of-the-art technology to safely remove large stores of fat tissue. Here are some other key differences between these similar procedures.

The Technique

Traditional breast reduction procedures physically remove the large stores of fat tissue from beneath the skin. This process can be traumatic to the body, leading to significant recovery times and large amounts of scar tissue left behind. BreastTite, a radio frequency assisted liposuction procedure, uses radio frequency technology that “melts” away the fat tissue before it is safely suctioned through a small incision. The instruments used for this state-of-the-art procedure are minimal in size and will not harm the surrounding area. Traditional breast reduction procedures will leave a significant amount of scar tissue that will remain noticeable.

Benefits of Skin Tightening

Traditional breast reduction procedures are able to remove large stores of fat tissue, leaving you with smaller breasts. BreastTite procedures provide this same benefit while also tightening the skin around the breasts. The radio frequency technology helps induce collagen production, leaving your breasts perkier than ever. Patients who receive traditional breast reductions can have the risk of sagging due to the skin not tightening following the procedure. Older patients are even more susceptible since their skin has less elasticity, resulting in increased sagging.

Recovery Period

Traditional breast reductions have a significant recovery period following the operation. Since the procedure is invasive, requiring surgical cuts the body, it can take up to six weeks to fully recover. BreastTite does not have this extended recovery period, with most patients having fully recovered within a single week. The small incisions are less-invasive, ensuring your body can quickly heal. In fact, most patients will only see a puncture mark following the procedure, and it is virtually unnoticeable and easy to cover up during this recovery period.
