Breast Reduction Case #05
Before & After Breast Reduction
Inferior pedicle breast reduction can effectively reduce breast volume and is the most common technique of breast reduction in North America. This traditional technique excises both a horizontal and vertical segment of the breast to yield an “anchor” or “Inverted-T scar” on the breast. While the incision is longer than that of a vertical breast reduction, the possibility of breastfeeding in the future is better. Nerves to the nipples are also better preserved with a higher likelihood of conserving nipple sensation following inferior pedicle breast reduction.
