Classification Vertical incision Nipple incision O-shaped incision
Image
Feature The most frequently performed surgery Correction possible even with large breast reduction Preserve senses around the nipples Good for breasts that are not too big and not too saggy Incise around the nipples. The most traditional surgery method Makes O-shape around the nipples Effective on large and severely sagging breasts
Advantages Remove sufficient amount of tissues and maintains good shape after the surgery Unnoticeable scars with limited visibility around the nipples Easy to predict the surgery results and preserve nipple functions
Disadvantages Difficult surgery that should be performed by experienced medical specialists to assure less scars and low possibility of complications Less tissue reduction and breasts may become wide and flabby More scars compared to other surgeries
The method of the sagging breast surgery depends on the breast size and ptosis (sagging).
  • If breast volume is small and breast ptosis is not severe, breast augmentation with implants can improve symptoms to some extent.
  • For severe breast ptosis, sagging skin is removed by an incision around the nipples, breast tissues are gathered and fixed into a cone shape to correct the sagging breasts.
  • In the case of gigantomastia and severe breast ptosis, breast reduction should be combined for better results.
