Advantages of Vertical Incision Breast Reduction
The Vertical Incision or Lollipop breast reduction is best suited to women who only require a moderate amount of tissue removal. Because it requires no incision along the bottom of the breast this method results is less scarring. The vertical incision breast reduction method is most often performed in conjunction with one of the pedicle methods for repositioning of the nipple and areola (nipple-areola complex). These breast reduction methods preserves blood and nerve connection to the nipple and keeps the majority of the patient's milk ducts intact. This reduces the potential for loss of sensation in the nipple and increases the woman's chances of being able to breastfeed in the future.
