Pairing this treatment with Liposuction


Liposuction is a cosmetic technique used to remove excess fat under the skin by suction. It’s often combined with reduction mammoplasty (breast reduction surgery). In cases where breast size is mainly due to fatty tissue, liposuction may be used with excision techniques to remove more substantial amounts of fat. In your consultation, Dr Liew will assess whether liposuction will be necessary for your procedure. This depends on individual condition, breast composition and the amount of reduction required.
