Common Breast Reduction Techniques Offered by Plastic Surgeons

Are you considering breast reduction surgery to achieve the silhouette you’ve always desired? Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to reduce the size and volume of excessively large breasts, alleviating physical discomfort and improving the overall quality of life.

If you’re thinking about undergoing this transformative procedure, it’s essential to understand the common techniques offered by plastic surgeons to help you make an informed decision. For the best results and safety, always seek the expertise of a renowned surgeon like Dr. Azra Ashraf, who specializes in breast surgeries.

 The Wise Pattern (Anchor Incision) Technique

The Wise pattern technique is the most commonly used method for breast reduction. This approach involves three incisions: one around the areola, a vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease, and a horizontal incision along the breast crease.

The surgeon removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin and then reshapes the breast to achieve a more proportional and aesthetically pleasing size. This technique is suitable for patients with larger breasts and significant sagging.

 The Vertical Incision (Lollipop) Technique

The vertical incision involves two incisions: one around the areola and a vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease. This method is suitable for moderate breast reductions and offers a more limited scar pattern than the Wise pattern. The surgeon repositions the nipple-areola complex to a higher position, creating a perkier and more youthful appearance.

 The Scarless Breast Reduction (Liposuction-only) Technique

This technique is ideal for patients with fatty breast tissue and minimal sagging. The surgeon uses liposuction to remove excess fat from the breasts, resulting in minimal scarring. The procedure offers a quicker recovery time and is less invasive than traditional breast reduction methods.

 The Circumareolar Technique (Donut or Benelli Breast Lift)

The circumareolar technique involves a circular incision around the edge of the areola. This method is suitable for patients with mild to moderate breast sagging. The surgeon removes a doughnut-shaped area of skin and tissue, tightening the breast and lifting the nipple-areola complex to a higher position.

 The Vertical Scar Reduction Technique

Also known as the LeJour or short scar technique, this method involves a single vertical incision from the areola to the breast crease. The surgeon removes excess breast tissue, fat, and skin through this incision, reshaping and lifting the breast. This technique results in a shorter scar and quicker recovery compared to the Wise pattern technique.
