Stuart Linder, MD, Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, answeredThere are several approaches used today for breast reduction surgery. The most common is the inferior pedicle technique or anchor scar. Tissue is removed from the inner and outer breast and the inferior pedicle is raised superiorly. The vertical LaJour technique also referred to as the lollipop technique may be used in small reductions. Liposuction of the breast is becoming popular but may lead to calcifications and problems with radiographic monitoring of the breast.
