Breast Reduction Case #07
Before & After Breast Reduction
Free nipple graft techniques used with breast reduction can be used for surgical reduction of the largest breasts. The nipple is usually repositioned as a free graft on the breast. An “Inverted-T” excision of breast tissue is the most common pattern of reduction. All of the breast ducts and nerves are severed from the free nipple graft. Therefore, breastfeeding is not possible and sensation is diminished following free nipple grafting. Furthermore, the nipple may permanently lose its pigmentation.
- An “anchor” or “Inverted-T” scar
