Breast Reduction Surgery Method
Incision Around the Areola
The boundary of the areola is incised, mammary tissues and fats are removed and the incised area is sutured. As scars remain only around the borders of the areola, this leaves minimum scarring and maintains the natural shape and size of breasts. The surgery is relatively simple and has quick recovery time. The incision around the areola is used for small amount of reduction and young women
Areola and Vertical Combination Incision
The areola and Vertical incision allows removing a lot of mammary tissues and lifts the sagging breasts.
Areola and T-Cut Combination Incision
The Areola and T-cut Combination Incision is most commonly used for breast reduction. The Areola and T-cut incision combines the advantages and improves the disadvantages of the existing incision methods for breast reduction. It is considered the best among the developed methods so far. The Areola and T-cut incision is carefully sutured and leaves a minimal scar on the bottom of the breast line and removes the desired amount of breast tissue. Out of all methods, the largest amounts of mammary tissue, fat, and skin are removed after an incision around the areola along with a 4-5cm incision from the areola to the inframammary fold, a boundary of where the breast and the chest meet. This method can be applied to any breast size, allowing a large amount of reduction with a minimum scar. The operation time is relatively reduced, as the incision line is small, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing, round and ample breast shape.
Compared to other incision methods, this liposuction method does not leave a visible scarring. However, this method does not remove a lot of mammary tissues and fats. Liposuction method is for people who are looking for a moderate change in reducing the breast size.
