Breast Reduction Surgery Incisions

There are several incisions to choose from for breast reduction surgery. The choice of incisions depends on the amount of breast tissue to be removed. We will discuss the options available.

Periareolar incision

  • Resulting scar limited to around the areolar.
  • Best for very small reductions.

Vertical Incision

  • Scar around areolar and underneath
  • Best for moderate reductions and lifting

Inverted T incision

  • Adds horizontal scar in the fold underneath
  • Can handle large breast, and skin excess
