Breast Reduction is a Plastic Surgical procedure that aims to reduce large breasts by removing excess fat and breast tissue. It is commonly known as a reduction mammaplasty. The technique adds to aesthetic appeal and helps ease discomfort and back pain.
This blog covers the types of breast reduction in Dubai that women with enlarged breasts can opt for to achieve their ideal breast size.
Types of breast reduction surgeries
A few common breast reduction surgeries are:
Anchor or Inverted-T Breast Reduction
This technique involves drawing of three incisions that form an inverted T. First cut is made around the areola, and the second one continues vertically from the center of the areola to the breast crease. The third cut incision is made horizontally along the breast crease.
This technique allows maximum removal of fat and tissues from the breast. Therefore, it gives maximum control to Plastic Surgeons, resulting in more extensive breast reshaping.
It is best for women with large breasts. However, it results in visible scars that take more than one year to fade.
Lollipop or Vertical Breast Reduction
In this technique, a lollipop-shaped incision is made around the areola that extends vertically down the breast’s lower half.
During this procedure, the Plastic Surgeon removes glandular and fat tissues to make breasts narrower and give a reconstructed look.
Since only two incisions are made, vertical breast reduction involves less scarring. But it also leads to less control over the breast and, in turn, less tissue removal than an inverted T. Therefore, it is best for people who aim for moderate breast reduction and are experiencing sagging.
Donut Breast Reduction
This involves a circular incision around the perimeter of the areola and the removal of fat amd breast tissues through this incision. Since the cut is small, only a small portion is accessible to the Plastic Surgeon and, therefore, less breast tissue is removed. It works best for women with mildly large breasts.
No Vertical Scar Breast Reduction
In the “No Vertical Scar Breast Reduction” technique, the Plastic Surgeon makes two incisions: one along the breast crease and the second around the areola perimeter. Then they remove the excess fat tissue to reduce the breast size. .
This technique turns out to be best for people with severe breast-dropping issues who have lost skin elasticity completely and want to avoid large scarring.
Liposuction Breast Reduction
Another popular option is Liposuction. It offers quicker results with minimal scarring.
Here, a Plastic Surgeon makes two small cuts around the breast crease to remove fatty tissues with the help of cannula that suctions the fat cells. However, this technique doesn’t involve eliminating glandular tissues.
This works best for people who require a nominal to moderate reduction in breast size and experience no sagging issues. It only involves reducing breast size – the overall shape, counter, and areola shape remain the same.
