Unilateral Breast Reduction
Unilateral Breast Reduction

This procedure depicts the major steps involved in a breast reduction using a circumvertical scar approach. This approach was selected for a young patient with primarily breast parenchyma which makes liposuction an ineffective option. Additional attention is given to the process of closing the incisions that reduces inframammary and peri-areolar scaring. Using this surgical series, surgical residents will be able to conceptualize the key steps and tools used in a breast reduction.
