What kind of incision will I need for a breast reduction?

Answer:

There are several types of incisions that can be used to perform a breast reduction. The two most common are a vertical incision closure, which is shaped like a lollipop.  The incision goes around the border of the areola and then descends in a vertical fashion from the inferior border of the areola down to the breast fold. An inverted “T” incision, or an anchor incision, is the other popular incision closure. This incision goes around the border of the areola and then extends vertically below the areola to the breast fold, unlike the vertical reductions; it also includes an incision along the breast fold.
