WHAT SIZE WILL I GO DOWN TO?

CURRENT CUP SIZE

D, DD, DDD, E, F, G, and Up

 

FINAL CUP SIZE

Most patients average a 2-3 cup size difference but it can vary with every patient. We remove enough to relieve your symptoms but leave enough to provide a good breast shape and fit your frame size. C cup is the most common size. At Augusta Plastic Surgery, our surgeons will try to match your preference the best we can.

 

A BREAST LIFT IS INCLUDED WITH EVERY BREAST REDUCTION

REDUCTION AND LIFT

When we perform a breast reduction, we also perform a breast lift to bring the nipples back to a normal position, relieve the pull from sagging, and reduce the rubbing and overlap of breast skin on the upper abdomen.

 

MASTOPEXY INCISIONS

Cresent Incision

 

Probably the least common incision since very little true lift can be obtained. It does slightly lift the nipple position and implants can be placed through the same location if needed.

 

Periareolar (Donut) incision

 

Hidden along the color change of the areola. Can be a very discreet scar in some patients. It can provide several cm of lifting to the nipple and also reduce the excess skin of the breast with a small scar. Implants can be placed through here as well.

 

Vertical (Lolipop) Incision

 

Probably the most common incision since more lifting can be performed with this incision and more sagging breast skin can be removed. Commonly performed with implant placement for more upper pole fullness.

 

Anchor Incision

 

The most traditional scar that can remove the maximum amount of skin and provide the most lifting if needed. Implants can also be used and placed through the same incisions.
