Type of Breast Reduction Incisions:

Breast Reduction and Lift

Periareolar Incision

The periareolar incision is a laceration that is made into the epidermis of the breast directly below the lower half of the areola. This laceration is generally used during the breast augmentation cosmetic procedure, boob lift, and when extracting breast implants. Depending on the preference of the patient and the plastic surgeon, this type of incision can be used to place the breast implant either over or under the pectoral muscle. As time passes and the incision begins to heal, the scar will generally blend into the pigment line of the areola.

Keyhole Incision or "Lollipop Incision"

The lollipop incision is less invasive with the benefit of having a fewer amount of scars. The surgeon will compose a lollipop laceration around the areola and down the breast. Once the laceration has been made the surgeon then removes the excess tissue and moves the nipple upwards a few millimeters. subsequently the remaining folds are gathered and the surgeon sutures the inner and outer portions of the breast constructing a support structure pillar. The keyhole incision may not be the best option for those with extremely large breast lines, because it may not produce the best results.

Anchor Incision

Although this technique is the most invasive, it serves the purpose of being performed on the women who experience from Macromastia. This technique consists of 3 different types of incisions. The first incision is formed around the circumference of the areola, also known as the periareolar incision. The second incision that is made is performed in a downward position underneath the areola, also known as the vertical incision, however it extends downward towards the lower area of the breast. The last of the lacerations is made diagonally underneath the breasts and connects to the vertical laceration. This laceration is in the format of an anchor, hence why it is referred to as the anchor incision or the inverted T. The surgeon then extracts the excess tissue betwixt the horizontal incision and the nipple, moves the areola upwards and stitches up the wound. This approach allows a large amount of tissue elimination and it also produces a more natural look.

Male Breast Reduction or Gynecomastia Miami

Male breast reduction or Gynecomastia is a condition in which the imbalance of hormones estrogen and testosterone causes inflammation of breast tissue in boys or men. This condition can affect both breasts, and in some cases it happens unevenly. Males of all ages may develop gynecomastia as a consequence of regular changes in hormone levels. However, other causes are also possible. Men who have this condition can occasionally experience breast pain and may also feel embarrassed. Some of the signs and symptoms of gynecomastia include breast tenderness, and swollen breast gland tissue. You should check with your doctor if you have pain, swelling, nipple discharge, and tenderness.

Several things can upset the hormone balance in patients with gynecomastia which may include natural hormone changes. Testosterone and estrogen levels, responsible for controlling the maintenance and development of sex characteristics in men and women, when too high or out of balance may lead to gynecomastia. Sometimes this condition goes away on its own and at other times male breast reduction or gynecomastia surgery may be needed.

Gynecomastia can sometime impair the individual’s self-confidence and cause emotional discomfort as well. Some men may go as far as avoiding physical intimacy and some physical activities in order to hide their condition. Male breast reduction at a clinic such as Eres Plastic Surgery is often one of the best solutions to treat this condition. An experienced cosmetic surgeon can help your chest have a naturally masculine look. Innovative techniques are employed in order to have less surgery time, a faster recovery, and less scarring.
