Description: Vertical breast reduction can effectively reduce breast volume with shorter length of incisions than with traditional techniques. Incisions and scars are vertically oriented. This technique of short scar breast reduction surgery is useful in selected patients with good skin elasticity of the breast where excess skin is pleated and "bunched-up" into the vertical "lollipop" shaped incision. During the first two months of healing, the excess skin along sutured skin incisions smooth from the weight of the breast. Nevertheless, residual irregularities along the breast incisions may persist requiring minor revisionary surgery. The likelihood of breast feeding following vertical breast reduction surgery is diminished. Nipple sensation often is reduced following vertical breast reduction. Occasionally, revisional surgery is necessary to excised persistent excess tissue at the base of the breast is necessary. Vertical breast reduction surgery can usually be performed as an outpatient procedure. Pattern of skin excision was vertical giving rise to a short vertical scar in the shape of "lollipop" | Vascular circulation to the nipple and areola was preserved by maintaining a superior pedicle of tissue attachment | Quantity of breast excised was of moderate weight (right 727g, left 646g). Photographic documentation was obtained at 2 months and 1 year after surgery. Note that surgical cases of Dr Chen Lee are presented for illustrative and educational purposes only.
