A sagging hypertrophied breast is reduced and elevated.[1]

A breast reduction is the surgery one can receive in order to make the breasts smaller.



Two of the most common reduction options are the vertical scar and inferior pedicle techniques, the scars of which are illustrated above.[2]

There are multiple different techniques that can result in reduced breast size: inferior pedicle technique, vertical scar technique, horizontal scar technique, free nipple-graft technique, and liposuction-only technique.
