a minimally invasive and safe breast reduction surgery that can reduce
breasts by up to 50% without scaring or associated risks. The procedure,
called liposculpture breast reduction, takes approximately 90 minutes and
can remove up to 1 liter of fat (more than 3 coke cans!) from each breast
while the patient is awake. Female breast reduction by liposculpture

According to Dr. Alan Bittner, Medical Director of Beverly Hills Liposculpture (http://www.bhliposculpture.com), the busiest liposculpture center in the world, "Breast liposculpture is done in our office in Beverly Hills with local numbing; no general anesthesia or IV sedation is used. Our patients remain awake and alert during the procedure." Most patients report that the procedure is comfortable or is virtually pain free. As a micro-liposculpture specialist, Dr. Bittner uses a gentle technique with instruments that are smaller than an angel hair pasta noodle to remove between 40 to 70% of the fat in the breasts. These smaller instruments lead to more precise results and faster recovery.
"There are many advantages of female breast reduction by liposculpture over traditional breast reduction surgery: No general anesthesia or IV is needed; there are no stitches or unattractive scars, there is very little pain and most patients return to work the following day," says Dr. Alan Bittner.

Women with overly large breasts suffer from a variety of ailments including chronic back, neck and shoulder pain, poor posture, painful gouges in the shoulders from bra strap pressure, restricted levels of activity and low self-esteem. Reduced breasts can improve self-confidence and make it easier to exercise or find clothing. While liposculpture can often reduce breasts by up to 50%, most women find that any reduction above 30% eliminates negative side effects caused by their overly large breasts.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 104,000 traditional breast reduction surgeries were performed in 2006. These traditional surgeries can significantly reduce breast size, but they leave patients with large lifetime scars, areas of numb skin, loss of nipple sensation, and can often interfere with a woman's ability to breast feed. Moreover, since traditional breast reductions utilize general anesthesia, the risks of complications and death is much higher. With Dr. Bittner's innovative, micro-liposculpture procedure, women can reduce their breast sizes to a healthier and more comfortable size, without any scaring, loss of sensation, or longer-term consequences, which can often occur with traditional breast reduction. General anesthesia is replaced with only local numbing, so
the procedure is very safe. In fact, some patients can even drive themselves home.
Dr. Bittner has garnered an international reputation for both the dramatic results he achieves with his cutting edge, micro-liposculpture techniques as well as for his impeccable safety record -- he has not ever had a patient experience a serious complication or infection. He sees patients from almost every continent in the world -- from Asia to Africa -- and at least two or more patients a day fly in to Beverly Hills Liposculpture for their procedures from other States. A video on You Tube of Dr. Bittner performing liposculpture on an awake patient receives over 1000 hits per week.
Focusing his practice solely on liposculpture, Dr. Alan Bittner performs more liposculpture procedures in a day than most surgeons do in a month. As one of the most experienced liposculpture specialists in the world, Dr. Bittner says, "Liposculpture is the new liposuction. Not only is liposculpture safer, but it can permanently remove more fat with smoother results than liposuction and with almost no downtime."
