Types of Breast Reduction Surgery

There has been considerable evolution in mammoplasty theory and technique over recent years. The top mammoplasty techniques that are available are as follows:

  1. Circumareolar Breast Reduction– A reduction mammoplasty performed with a “doughnut” incision made around the areola only.
  2. Circumvertical Breast Reduction–A “Lollipop” reduction mammoplasty, or short scar mammoplasty with an incision around the areola and a vertical line.
  3. Wise-Pattern Reduction – The more classical “Inverted-T” breast reduction, with an incision around the areola, a vertical line to the inframammary crease, and a horizontal line.
  4. Suction-Assisted Breast Reduction –A mammoplasty performed with liposuction, solely, or in conjunction with the above.

Factors Determining the Technique used for Breast Reduction Surgery:

There are a number of factors that decides the technique for breast reduction surgery as follows:

  • The size of the boos
  • The degree of droop or sag (ptosis)
  • Boobs shape
  • Symmetry
  • The projection and size of the nipple–areolar region
  • The elasticity of the breast skin
  • Physique and body proportion
  • Individual preferences, desires, and goals

The breast reduction technique is decided by the patient’s physiological and anatomical status as well as their desire to receive the procedure must match with the realistic expectation. The incision pattern for the specific technique is ultimately formulated on the basis of the anticipated final balance between the breast “foundation”, consisting of the breast gland and soft tissue, and the elastic properties and size of the “skin bra”. Only with a better understanding between the boobs properties and size of “skin bra” could help in achieving the most beautiful and natural boob’s shape and thus the top mammoplasty procedure results can be obtained.

After completing the mammaplasty, a dressing is applied to the incision. A support bra is advisable to wear in order to minimize the swelling, which also helps in receiving a faster healing process.

A small, thin tube may be temporarily placed under the skin to drain any excess blood or fluid that may collect.

Why Consultation is Important in the Breast Reduction Surgery and what it decides regarding the Procedure?

Receiving consultation is always helpful for the patients seeking any of the cosmetic procedure, however, it is always recommended to go through the primary evaluation with your cosmetic surgeon before proceeding ahead for cosmetic surgery.

The success and safety of your boobs reduction procedure are highly dependent on the consultation process that clears every doubt and confusion related to the mammoplasty.

During your Breast Reduction Surgery be prepared to discuss:

  • Your surgical goals
  • Medical conditions, drug allergies, and medical treatments
  • Current medications, vitamins, herbal supplements, alcohol, tobacco, and drug use
  • Previous surgeries

Your Breast Reduction Surgeon will also:

  • Evaluate your general health status and any pre-existing health conditions or risk factors
  • May take photographs
  • Discuss your procedure options
  • Recommend a course of treatment
  • Discuss likely outcomes of mammoplasty and any risks or potential complications.

One may have a number of questions to ask, but one must introspect each question with respect to the concerned problem, hence, it is good to make a list of important questions before proceeding for the consultative step.


How Should I Prepare for Breast Reduction Surgery?

In order to get ready for the breast reduction surgery, patients are asked for the following Do’s:

  • Get lab testing or a medical evaluation
  • Take certain medications or adjust your current medications
  • Get a baseline mammogram before and another one after the procedure to help detect any future changes in your breast tissue
  • Stop smoking at least 2 weeks before following the procedure
  • Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs, and herbal supplements as they can increase bleeding.


What are the steps followed in Breast Reduction Surgery?

In order to perform the mammoplasty, a simple incision is performed to remove the glandular tissue, excess fat and skin. In some peculiar cases, liposuction is performed to remove the excess fat. If the enlarged breast occurs as a result of only the excess fat and excess skin is not a factor, only a liposuction can be enough to get the results, but the excision technique is required with the conjugation of liposuction when both the factors of excess skin and excess fats are the prime factor behind the enlarged and heavy boobs.

The technique of Breast reduction surgery can be described by the following Factors:

  • Patient’s physiological & anatomical condition
  • Boobs composition
  • Amount of depletion desired
  • Personal preference & surgeon’s recommendation as per the state of the condition.

Step- 1: Anesthesia:

The first step is about giving the general anesthesia to the mammoplasty patients in order to perform the procedure hassle-free.

Step-2: The Incision:

The incision options include the following types:

  1. A Circular pattern around the areola
  2. A keyhole or racquet-shaped pattern with an incision around the areola and vertically down to the boobs crease
  3. An inverted T or anchor-shaped incision pattern

Step-3: Removing Tissue & Repositioning:

After the incision, the re-positioning of the nipple is done. The areola is reduced by excising skin at the perimeter if required.

Underlying boobs tissue is removed, shaped, and lifted.

Step-4: Sutures or closing the incision areas:

The sutures are layered deep within the boobs tissue to create and support the newly shaped breasts sutures, skin adhesives and/or surgical tape close the skin. The sutures are done in such a manner that there won’t be any practical scar that makes it more acceptable to receive the utmost scar less results.

Step-5: Outcomes:

To receive the mammoplasty result one may not have to wait much as it gives immediate results. The healing process concerning the swelling, bruising, pain and scar will resolve over time and the incision line will fade.

The results of the boobs reduction procedure are long-lasting. The achieved results with a new size will help alleviate you from the pain and discomfort associated with mammoplasty.

An Introduction to the process:

Conventional techniques of boob reduction are open methods where the excess tissue is cut and the boobs are lifted and stitched in a normal position. This gives a visible scar on the breast. For an unmarried woman having scars may be unacceptable. In Keyhole technique, the fat component in the large boobs is removed by the most advanced Ultrasonic Liposuction technique from the keyhole using a small cut. This will reduce the size of the boob and the associated heaviness. If the skin tone of the boob is good, there will not be any additional drooping from the procedure. Keyhole technique is suitable for every woman who is seeking the shape of a proportionate boob shape as suited to her body figure.

Ideal candidates for this procedure would be young women with large breasts, good skin tone and only a moderate degree of sagging.
