Q: What body type is a good candidate for liposuction rather than just a traditional breast reduction? Are younger patients more ideal for liposuction to reduce breast size without a breast lift? What other factors are considered?

A: There is a small subgroup of women with symptomatic breast enlargement who will be candidates for breast reduction with liposuction alone. In general these will be younger women with good skin tone and the nipple should be well positioned on the breast. One should expect a more modest volume reduction with liposuction alone.
