Breast Reduction Animated Surgery
A Breast Reduction operation does several things:
- It reduces the volume of the breast.
- It elevates the nipple areolar complex, which is a major component of the breast lift.
- It reduces the skin envelope.
- It reshapes the breast as a whole.

How a Breast Reduction is Performed
The most common and most reliable form of the operation results in an "anchor" shaped scar on the breast. Some patients are unclear why this type of incision is needed, and I thought it would be useful to make an animated video to help understand where the scars come from. The nipple areolar complex is moved on a "pedicle" which contains both the blood supply for the nipple as well as sensory nerves. I hope this video improves your understanding of the operation. To see more views of the patient shown in the animation, please visit the photo gallery.
