Breast Reduction Surgery Techniques

The Surgeon can use one of several different surgical techniques when performing breast mammaplasty. The technique your surgeon will use for any given patient depends on the patient’s existing breast anatomy. Also, the type and quantity of the tissue which will be removed, and the patient’s desired result depend on the anatomy as well. 

Vertical or ‘Lollipop’ Breast Reduction

The best candidates for a vertical breast reduction in Turkey are patients who need a modest reduction in breast size and have more pronounced sagging. There are two separate incision points in this:

The first runs along the side of the areola and the second runs vertically from the bottom of the areola region to the inframammary fold or crease under the breast. This incision route helps the surgeon to clean and remove excess fat, breast tissue, and muscle, reshape the breast for a smaller internal scale. 

Inverted-T or ‘Anchor’ Breast Reduction

Three incisions are used in the inverted-T breast reduction: one around the perimeter of the areola, one vertically from the areola to the breast crease, and one beneath the breast crease. This procedure allows the surgeon to remove the most tissue and change the shape. Also, it is typically used when a patient requires a more severe breast size reduction or has significant asymmetry or sagging to correct.

Scars disappear significantly within the first year or two following surgery with good treatment and can be easily covered by clothes, including a bikini top!
