While breast augmentation is one of the top cosmetic procedures in the country, there is another group that goes in for the exact opposite. Breast reduction is a common procedure sought out for a variety of reasons but typically because of the discomfort caused by large breasts. Large breasts have known to cause a wide variety of complications such as skeletal problems, embarrassment, pain, rashes and even respiratory issues.
One of the most popular breast reduction procedures available today is Vertical Incision Breast Reduction Surgery. This is because it offers a certain set of advantages over more traditional procedures.
Procedure and Advantages
- Procedure: This procedure starts with a vertical incision around the areola. Once the incision is made, the breast tissue from the central and lower parts are removed. Following this, the remaining breast tissue is sutured together to give the breasts their desired shape from within. Once that is done, the skin is sutured and closed. The surgery scars remain in the form of a lollipop, descending from the areola to the base of the breast.
There are significant advantages to this procedure, for instance:
- Less obvious scars: The scars from a Vertical Incision Breast Reduction surgery are less obvious compared to the scars that result from an inverted T-Breast Reduction method.
- Better shape: The overall shape of the breasts also turn out to be better. This is because the remaining tissue is used to shape the breasts. The shape is further enhanced by the vertical skin closing procedure. On the whole, the breasts look more natural and youthful than they do in more traditional breast reduction procedures.
