Breast reduction techniques are varied and highly individualized. Depending on your body type and aesthetic concerns, there are a lot of methods to choose from. Incision size, location and the inclusion of liposuction are just a few of the options available for breast reduction techniques. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon like Dr. Lisa Taylor will help you answer any questions you may have.
A big part of what separates breast reduction techniques is the type of incision. There are anchor pattern incisions, lollipop incisions and horizontal scar incisions. There are also free nipple-graft techniques and methods where only liposuction is involved, which is called lipectomy. Some, like the horizontal incision, offer the benefit of less scarring, where other techniques like the lipectomy are specific for women who only need fat removal.
