- Question from Chat: Do you have an opinion about liposuction on the non-affected breast to make it more the size of the breast that has had the lumpectomy?
- Answers - Carolyn Chang In general, I think that if you have a diagnosis of breast cancer, you want to be able to biopsy all of the tissue that comes out of the other breast, because you cannot do that with liposuction. I think that a traditional breast reduction on that side would be a safer alternative. You can't look at the tissue that's removed from the liposuction.
