The procedure: What to expect
As with all of his plastic surgery procedures, Dr. Fenner will customize your breast reduction to meet your unique needs. He offers three primary techniques: the lollipop, the anchor and liposuction.
The lollipop involves an incision around the areola and down the front of the breast. Through that opening, Dr. Fenner can sculpt smaller, more manageable breasts by removing a limited amount of fat, skin and tissue.
The anchor breast reduction requires incisions around the areola, down the front of the breast, and across the breast crease. Because it is a large incision, it allows Dr. Fenner to remove more tissue and create a comprehensive transformation.
For many of our patients, liposuction is the ideal breast reduction approach. This procedure is popular because it’s less intensive than a traditional breast reduction. However, it is only appropriate if you primarily need to address excess fatty tissue (not glandular development) and you require a subtle adjustment in breast size.
