  2. Breast Reduction

Function and beauty are simultaneously achieved through breast reduction.

The surgical method for breast reduction surgery varies depending on factors such as the size, shape, location of the areola, and degree of sagging. It's important to note that the complete invisibility of scars is not achievable, so some degree of acceptance of scars is necessary. However, a highly skilled specialist will diagnose and perform the surgery, aiming to find the optimal surgical method that considers both function and aesthetics.

Breast reduction surgery method

The method for breast reduction surgery is determined based on the size and degree of breast sagging. The basic surgical method used is similar to the technique employed in sagging breast surgery. At AB Plastic Surgery, breast ultrasounds are used to enhance the safety of the procedure. Thorough breast examinations are conducted before and after surgery to ensure comprehensive evaluation and proper care.

Breast Reduction Surgery Method

Learn about AB Plastic Surgery's Breast Reduction Surgery Method.

The reduction method for breast reduction surgery is determined based on the size of the breast and the desired outcome.
While the specific technique may vary, the basic surgical incision methods used in breast reduction are similar to those used in breast augmentation.

Areola Incision

Scarring is limited to the area around the areola, resulting in minimal scarring and a quick recovery. However, it is important to note that the areola incision technique requires the circumference of the areola to exceed 4 cm. In cases of severe megamastosis, where the breasts are excessively large, this technique may not be suitable due to the extensive tissue removal required.

It can be applied to breasts of various sizes, ranging from relatively large to small, without compromising nipple sensation or breastfeeding capability.

T Shape Incision

This surgical method involves making an incision in a specific shape from the nipple to the sub-breast fold. The surgery's outcomes are easy to predict and have proven effective, even in cases of severe megamastosis. However, it is important to note that the scar resulting from the surgery is relatively long.
