Breast SurgeryBREAST REDUCTION

Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat and skin for more natural, balanced, and beautiful breast shapes. Large breasts can sometimes cause complications to other areas of the body such as: neck, back, and shoulder pain as well as skin issues. Through this procedure, patients can improve their overall health and regain their confidence.

  2. 2. People with large & sagging breasts
  3. 3. People who are unsatisfied with their breast size/shape

How is Breast Reduction Performed?

There are a variety of surgical methods (incision location) available for breast reduction surgery. Depending on the droopiness and the size of the current breast, areolae, and nipples, the most suitable surgical method will be recommended by the surgeon for each individual patient. The right amount of excess fat and skin will be removed to achieve the best results.

  1. 1 ) Periareolar Incision
    This is the most common and effective method for breast reduction. However, it can be a little difficult to remove a large amount of breast tissue using this method. One advantage is that it leaves less scaring than other methods.

  2. 2 ) Vertical Incision(Lollipop Incision)
    This is an upgraded incisional method using a combination of the periareolar and the anchor pattern incision. It is also known as the ‘Lollipop Incision’.The incision is made along the areola and a vertical incision is made on the bottom part of the breast. This method leaves less scarring than the ‘Anchor Incision’ alone and preserves nipple sensation.

  3. 'O' shape incision
    3) Abdominal Flap (From Abdomen)
    This is the method that can reduce the breast size the most. Although the incision can be covered by the breasts, it may leave some permanent scarring. This method is recommended for those who have excessive breast tissue.
