Breast Reduction Procedures Explained

Breast reduction mammoplasty is the cosmetic plastic surgery method for reducing the total size of huge breasts. In this type of surgery, the fat, glandular tissue and skin are removed from the breast area. In this type of plastic surgery, a doughnut shape is usually formed over the breast and reduced in size. In some types of breast reduction SA, skin from the thighs and buttocks of the patient is also taken off to provide a flat appearance under clothing. In addition, the nipple and areola are reduced to provide asymmetrical balance.

The most popular type of breast reduction is the modified mammaplasty. It is also known as the noon mammaplasty or the Anguilla mammaplasty. In this type of breast reduction, the nipple and areola are reduced by making an incision in the crease below the nipple and areola. Then, a strip of skin from the back of the areola is folded to cover the lower half of the nipple and Isola.


This type of breast reduction saplings the areola and nipple but leaves the remaining skin intact. In the modified annual breast reduction technique, the cut is made in a horizontal line down to the crease below the nipple and areola. Anguilla technique is performed with the use of a flexible hollow needle. By doing so, there is a possibility of minimal scarring on the patient’s body. However, the procedure may leave scars on the adjacent areas of the chest.

Another type of breast reduction SA sapling technique is the dibdibangno. This is done by making an incision inside the crease just below the nipple and areola. A small hole is made, and the skin is folded so that half of it is exposed on the upper side. The remaining exposed part folds over the fold and is stitched, while the incisions inside are covered with sheets of tissue paper. Finally, the wound would be sewn closed with sutures. If required, the patient may opt for a port or angulation depending on the scar pattern on the chest area.

Another form of modified annual breast reduction SA is the noong sa kanyang. With the modified noong technique, the surgeon makes an incision at the back of the nipple and areola and the base of the breast. The tissue paper is removed, and the exposed skin is folded and stitched on both sides. The entire process is done under anesthesia since this is a more complicated treatment procedure. Unlike the modified noong technique, this treatment also includes skin grafts.
