reduction is required. If you have voluminous breasts and your sagging is excessive, this method will not be
the right method.
Method Applied from the Nipple: In this method, in
order to perform the procedure, the part called the dark areola that surrounds it along with the nipple
located in the middle of the breast is removed by cutting it into a circle. After the procedure that should
be applied to the breast is applied from this area, that is, excess tissues are removed and the breast is
given a new shape, the removed nipple is sewn back to this area and the procedure is completed.
Vertical (Lollipop) Reduction: With this technique, it
is a method that is applied by starting from around your areos and making a straight incision under the
chest. It is mostly applied in cases where moderate reduction is required.
Reduction with an Inverted T-Shaped Incision: In this

incision is made under the breast. This method is also used more often when the breast volume is large and

from the nipple, around the breast and under the breast. The operation takes about 2 hours. Depending on the
breast size, this period may vary.
After the incision is made, excess fat and skin tissues are removed.
Later, the breasts are reshaped and the incisions are closed in a way that suits the aesthetic appearance.

incision that will be made during breast reduction surgery. According to this condition, an inverted
t-shaped incision opens in the breast.
When breast reduction is performed, it is often tried to maintain the
position of the nipple, but in people with excessively large breasts, the ends of the breasts are removed
somewhat by placing them in the appropriate position.

the surgery. After an unsuccessful surgery, the milk ducts may be damaged and the person may lose their
breastfeeding function. Choosing an experienced surgeon is very important in this regard.
