BENEFITS OF BREAST REDUCTION
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, more than 96,000 women had breast reduction surgery in a single year. The procedure carries tremendous psychological effects, and women who undergo the surgery tend to be very satisfied with the results.
It is also important to note that this surgery isn’t just for women. Men who have conditions such as gynecomastia (where male breasts are enlarged abnormally) also may seek a breast reduction.
BREAST REDUCTION WITH VERTICAL OR INVERTED T-SCAR
During surgery, Dr. Potparic will make an incision around the nipple, then downward on the breast, in a keyhole form. The excess skin, breast tissue, and fat are removed and your nipple is relocated. Depending on the size of breast and excess skin to be removed, a lollipop incision or inverted-T incision will be used.
