Breast Reduction and Breast Lift:

         All women dream of having beautiful breasts, but someone has enlarged breasts. The symthomps associated with enlarged breast include upper and mid back pain, neck pain, shoulder pain, shoulder bra strap grooves, postural problems and chronic sweating and rashes beneath the breasts. It is also quite difficult to find clothes that suite for them. The breast reduction surgery is the one of the procedure to decrease the size of the breast. There are three methods of breast reduction and lift:

1. Breast Reduction and Lift by Liposuction

The surgeon will take the liposuction for patients with not too large breasts. The surgeon offers using Ultrasound Assisted Liposuntion (Vaser)
The advantage
- Invisible scar
- Less duration of the surgery comparing to another procedure
- Less recovery time
The disadvantage
- Difficult to control the shape and contour of the breasts, or size relative to the patient's request

2. Breast Reduction and Lift by Incision Scar around Areola (O scar)

This procedure is suitable for large breasts with mild and moderate ptosis. The incision scar is around areola (Figure 1). During this procedure, fat, glandular tissue and the excess skin are removed and cut from the breasts. The nipples will be repositioned and the breasts will be reshaped to get a good body proportion.

The advantage

- Scar around areola (O-scar)
- Incison scar around areola can be hidden

The disadvange

- Folded skins may occur around incision scar, however, they normally disappear within three to five months

3. Breast Reduction and Lift by Inverted T-scar 

          For patients with significantly large breasts, the surgeon will make an incision in the skin that take the form of an inverted T-scar (Picture 2), remove the excess fat and adjust the shape. The size is reduced to the patient’s preference.
