Some fundamental facts on breast reduction and breast lift

How is the breast reduction performed?

Thanks to modern surgical procedures it is often possible to perform the so-called I-incision (or Lejour procedure). In that case the incision is made around the areola – if the nipple has to be be raised – and down vertically from the areola to the infra-mammary fold. If there is very much excess skin an additional horizontal incision is made in the infra-mammary fold (T- or L-incision).
