What Is Breast Reduction?

You may be a candidate for breast reduction if your breasts are large, heavy or out of proportion with the rest of your body. Patients who are the best fit for a breast reduction surgery are in good health, do not have any chronic or uncontrolled medical conditions, and have skin that has a good degree of elasticity, so that it will tighten over your smaller breasts after surgery.

Breast reduction can:

Dr. Chapin will meet with you during a one-on-one consultation to discuss the procedure. He will then perform a physical examination of your breasts to determine whether breast reduction is appropriate for you. If you are a candidate for breast reduction surgery, he will present a detailed plan and approach to your surgery. Lastly, realistic expectations will be set for what improvements you can expect post surgery.

Dr. Chapin's Approach To Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is an outpatient procedure performed under anesthesia. The incision pattern that Dr. Chapin selects will depend on several factors, including the size of your breasts, the degree to which the breasts sag, and the location of your nipples. The most common incision patterns include:

  • Donut incision: made circularly around the border of the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple).
  • Keyhole/lollipop incision: made around the edge of the areola, extending vertically down to the breast crease.
  • Anchor incision: made around the lower edge of the areola, vertically down to the crease of the breast and horizontally along the crease.

Through the incision, Dr. Chapin will remove excess tissue and reshape the remaining tissue to create a smaller and firmer breast mound. He will move the nipple and areola higher on the breast mound, and he may reduce the size of the areola. Next, Dr. Chapin will eliminate any remaining excess skin and re-drape the remaining skin more tightly over the newly shaped breast mound. Finally, he will close the incisions with sutures and place surgical dressings over the breasts.
