Surgical Method

  • Breast reduction surgery involves reduction of Areola, which changed the position of nipples and areola, reduction of breast tissues and resecting of excessive saggy skin. In this surgery, the most important issues for patients are how much breast reduction can be achieved, how much scar will be left behind and how balanced and pretty the resulting shape of breasts will be.
  • Breast reduction surgery involves skin incision and inevitably leaves behind certain scars. These scars can be in circular shapes around areola, vertical line down from nipples and horizontal inward and outward lines at the base of breasts. The smaller the scars, greater the level of satisfaction but then more the amount of breast tissue to be removed, longer the lengths of scars left behind. To more the length of saggy breasts to be lifted, scars tend to be longer. The greater the amount of breast reduction, the longer the length of resulting scars.
  • It is extremely important to have a consultation before surgery on size of breasts and length of scars you can tolerate and decide on the method.
