How is breast reduction performed?

Different techniques are available to perform breast reduction surgery depending on the size of the breast and the patient’s goals. The surgeon removes excess glandular tissue, fat, and skin, relocates the nipple and areola, and reshapes the breast skin envelope before closing the incisions with stitches. Liposuction may be used to contour surrounding areas further while minimizing scars. Many patients return to work within one to three weeks and resume exercise in about a month. Led by our esteemed Chief of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Troy Callahan, our practice is dedicated to delivering exceptional results, personalized care, and improved quality of life for our patients.

Procedure: Achieving a new balance

A breast reduction typically involves removing excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to achieve a more proportionate breast size. The surgical technique may vary depending on your specific circumstances and desired outcome. Dr. Callahan will discuss the incision options with you, which can include:

Anchor incision (Inverted T)

This technique involves three incisions - around the areola, vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and along the natural curve of the breast crease. It allows for significant reshaping and removal of excess tissue.

Lollipop incision (Vertical)

This incision pattern includes an incision around the areola and a vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease. It is suitable for patients with moderate breast reduction needs and provides effective lifting and reshaping.

Donut incision (Peri-Areolar)

This technique involves a single incision around the edge of the areola. It is often chosen for patients with less extensive reduction requirements.
