Breast Reduction - Hello,I have had breast reduction surgery one year ago. Left breast is still bigger than right, so I am having liposuction to correct asymmetry. I am wondering if my surgeon could use liposuction on the right breast too, to reduce it, because I would like to have one or half size smaller breasts.

Liposuction is a reasonable choice for slight asymmetry when the problem is excess fat. With breasts, some larger degrees of asymmetry are due to excess breast tissue, not fat. The problem with doing liposuction in this case is that liposuction can't suck out breast tissue. In other words, the benefit of liposuction is limited when it comes to the breasts. Hope that helps.
