Breastreduction

A sagging hypertrophied breast can be reduced and elevated with a breast reduction.[1]

A breast surgery is a medical way to change one's breasts. They can either be elective or necessary, depending on the procedure and circumstances. Different surgeries include a breast reduction, breast augmentation, implant revision, breast lift, breast reconstruction, lumpectomy, or mastectomy.

Types of breast surgeryEdit

ReductionEdit

Reductiontechniques

Two of the most common reduction options are the vertical scar and inferior pedicle techniques.[2]

Main article: Breast reduction

A breast reduction is a surgery that one can receive in order to make the breasts smaller.[3] By this method, fat, skin, and other tissue are removed until the desired breast volume is achieved. The nipples are typically repositioned higher up on the breast mound after this process, so that they match the new, smaller breast size.

There are multiple techniques available to achieve this goal: inferior pedicle, vertical scar, horizontal scar, free nipple-graft, and liposuction-only.

AugmentationEdit

Main article: Breast augmentation

A breast augmentation is a surgery that takes place when one wishes to enlarge his or her breasts. Options include breast implants and fat-graft mammoplasty.[3]

Implant revisionEdit

LiftEdit

A breast lift (also known as "mastopexy") is a procedure intended to reverse breast sagging or drooping (also known as "breast ptosis"). Breast asymmetry may also be fixed, and nipples repositioned. Lifts differ from reductions in that breast volume is not intentionally decreased.

This procedure can be performed using one of many procedures.

ReconstructionEdit

Breast reconstruction includes nipple and areola reconstruction.

LumpectomyEdit

MastectomyEdit
