Since it’s a surgical procedure you need to spend more time gathering as much information as you can before undergoing this procedure, so read on to know everything.
Aim of This Treatment
Following are the goals of breast reduction mammoplasty procedure:
- To reduce the size of the breasts.
- To restore breast symmetry
- To restore self-image and self-esteem
- To create firmer and perkier breasts.

Techniques Used for Breast Reduction
At EuroMed Clinic our highly-experienced breast reduction surgeons can use the following breast reduction techniques to attain the ideal shape and size of the breasts:
1. Anchor Pattern Technique (The Inverted-T Type reduction)
It’s one of the most common and effective techniques used for reducing the size of breasts. In this, the surgeon makes an incision that starts around the nipple and goes down under the breasts. The cut figuratively matches the shape of an anchor which is why it’s called the anchor technique
2. Vertical Incision or Lollipop Pattern Technique (Lejour technique)
The vertical incision also known as the Lollipop pattern or Lejour technique is also very popular for dealing with over-sized breast problems. In this technique, the cut starts around the nipple section and goes all the way straight down, but not under the breasts. The benefit of this technique is that it negates the pull of gravity, helps maintain the shape, and offers many other advantages as well.
3. The Periareolar Reduction
This specific technique is not suitable for extremely oversized breasts. It best works when a small amount of fat or tissue is to be removed for a minor breast size reduction. The incision is made around the areolas. This technique is also effective for restoring breast symmetry.
4. Circular Pattern Technique
In this technique, the incisions are made in a circular way around the areolas and the excess fat or skin tissues are removed from the area.
5. Breast Liposuction
The liposuction technique can also be used to dissolve and then remove the excess fat to reduce the size and weight of the breasts. The reduced size of breasts is directly proportional to the amount of fat removed.
Our breast reduction surgeons always make sure that the incisions that are made are hidden and not visible to the onlooker. Our surgeons are quite familiarized with making these incisions that there is minimum scarring after the procedure. However, if you want to improve the appearance of the scars after breast reduction then you can opt for the Scar Removal Treatment in Dubai.
