Dr. Hoefflin performs a specialized liposculpting technique in which the breasts can be reduced without leaving the visible scars found after traditional breast reduction.
This unique technique of liposuction offers several advantages compared to traditional methods. These include less trauma to the breast, faster recovery, few visible scars, and fewer postoperative complications, improvement in shoulder and neck pain, and more natural appearing and immediate results.

During your consultation, Dr. Hoefflin, will determine if you are an excellent candidate for the scarless breast reduction procedure.
Dr. Hoefflin performs his Los Angeles and Beverly Hills Scarless Los Angeles Breast Reductions as an outpatient procedure under local anesthesia with deep sedation or under general anesthesia, administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. The procedure usually takes between one to two hours. All operations are performed within fully credentialed and state-of-the-art surgical facilities.
Patients are discharged home with light dressings and a comfortable, form-fitted bra. Soft bra support (without underwires) is encouraged for 4 to 6 weeks. Slight to moderate bruising and swelling are common for several weeks. There is a gradual decrease in postoperative swelling over several years. A self-massaging protocol is initiated after several weeks to maintain breast softness. Patients are allowed to shower several days after their procedure.
Our patients are surprisingly free of discomfort due to the long-acting local anesthetic injections and nerve blocks. Pain after this procedure is unusual. Patients tell us they feel much better than expected following their surgery and are able to return to work and social activities within several days. A
Light exercise can be resumed after several weeks and an unrestricted return to all activities within six weeks.

Specific risks and the suitability of a breast reduction procedure for a given individual can be determined at the time of consultation. You can reduce your risk of complications by closely following your surgeon’s instructions both before and after surgery.
