Online PR News – 17-June-2011 – – Portsmouth, NH- June 6th, 2011- Dr. Gray first starting performing this scarless procedure in 1996. He recently performed his 1,100th case and stated, â€śThe popularity of breast reduction using liposuction continues to expand. It is very satisfying to see this become an accepted procedure and that so many people, both men and women, have benefited.â€ť Because Dr. Gray is the originator and has the greatest amount of experience, he has been asked to give presentations on his procedure to numerous conferences at the both the American Society of Plastic Surgery and the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
â€śLiposuction is simpler and safer than surgical excision (cutting out tissue), without the 12 inches of scarring from the traditional method. Knowing that patients want shorter recovery and less risk, I realized that liposuction with only 2 small points of insertion would be effective on the breast. The majority of breast is fat, which can easily be removed with liposuctionâ€ť, adds Dr. Gray. â€śWe continue to see patients from all over the country, where it is not offered. My staff has accumulated much experience with this procedure: they have perfected the after care of my patients and has also made it very easy for people to travel to see me.â€ť Dr. Gray remains the plastic surgeon with the most experience in this procedure.
â€śWith fewer insurances companies covering breast reductions, Liposuction Breast Reduction is a much more affordable way to alleviate the painful symptoms of oversized breastsâ€ť, said Dr. Gray. Due to the brief procedure, costs of the operating groom and anesthesia are greatly reduced.
Extremely large breasts cause physical problems caused by the excessive weight of the breasts, such as: back, neck and shoulder pain, headaches, numbness in the hands and arms, indentations in the shoulders from bra straps, poor posture from the downward pull of the weights, spinal curving, and painful rashes under the breasts. Over-sized breasts also cause a host of emotional problems, particularly in for teen-agers, including feelings of self-consciousness, poor body image, depression and difficulty finding clothes that fit and difficulty exercising. On younger patients, such as teen-agers, we request the patient get a mammogram to insure there is enough fat to use this technique.
Patients like the quick return to full activity, a less painful recovery, and the fact that this procedure leaves them with virtually no scarring and relief from the painful symptoms, both emotional and physical, that they had been experiencing.
