What is Peri-Areolar Breast Reduction? Find out more about this common breast reduction technique and whether it is right for you.
Peri-Areolar Incision Breast Reduction
The peri-areolar incision breast reduction method requires the just one incision in each breast. Just as the name implies, this incision goes around the perimeter of the areola. Like the vertical incision method, this method is also used by itself as a method of breast lift surgery. It may also be referred to as the "Benelli" method, after the surgeon who pioneered the method.
Advantages of Peri-Areolar Breast Reduction
The Peri-Areolar incision breast reduction method can also be used in conjunction with the inferior pedicle breast reduction method, in order to reposition the nipple while preserving blood flow and function. This method combines techniques to give multiple benefits. Because the incision is only made around the perimeter or the areola, scarring is often far less noticeable. The "bottomed" or "hollowed out" look that can often occur with other methods is avoided using this technique. You can speak with one of our breast specialists here at the Breast Reduction Center Los Angeles, to see if this method is well suited to you.

This center is such a friendly place I'm so glad I went here. The results of my breast reduction are very good, I am extremely happy! Thanks, Dr. Killen and staff" - M. E.
Peri-areolar Breast Reduction with Body Sculpting Liposuction

Slimming down the upper body helps to keep your breasts looking full and natural, even in their reduced state.

By combining liposuction with your peri-areola breast reduction you can enhance and lift your breasts while slimming your frame for an overall beautiful result.
