Breast Reduction Incision Options

in Albany, NY

How can my procedure be customized?


In some cases, a breast reduction can be performed with liposuction alone. This can help you achieve a subtle reduction that is less invasive and results in no scarring on the front of the breast.

Vertical/Lollipop Incision:

For a more moderate reduction and to improve sagging, patients might require the vertical/lollipop lift. In this technique, an incision is made around the areola and vertically towards the crease underneath the breast. This allows for the removal of excess tissue and skin and the re-positioning of the nipple.

Inverted-T/Anchor Incision:

The inverted-T/Anchor reduction allows for the most dramatic breast reduction and reshaping. For this technique, an incision is made around the areola, vertically towards the breast crease, and along the breast crease. This allows for the most significant tissue and skin reduction and can improve severe sagging and asymmetry.
