Breast Reduction

Techniques used for Breast Reduction

There are various techniques used for Breast Reduction:

  • Vertical Scar technique (lollipop incision)- The vertical-scar reduction mammoplasty is best suited for removing small areas of the skin and small volumes of  tissues leaving short incision scars.
  • Horizontal Scar technique- This is  performed with  a horizontal incision along the inframammary fold and a nipple-areola complex, the potential disadvantages are box-shaped breasts with thick incision scars.
  • Free Nipple-Graft technique- The advantage is the greater volume of breast tissues can be resected. The disadvantage is a breast without a sensitive nipple-areola complex, and without lactation capability.
  • Liposuction-only technique (lipectomy)- The advantages are the small incision-scars required so, a shorter post-operative healing period for the incision scars; the disadvantage is limited breast-reduction.
  • Inverted-T incision- is performed with a incision to the nipple-areola complex, which extends downwards, following the natural curve of the breast hemisphere. This technique effectively reduces the very enlarged breasts of macromastia and gigantomastia.
