“Scarless” Breast Reduction
A number of women have such large breasts that they are uncomfortable causing neck, back, and shoulder pain. It is often difficult to exercise or play certain sports. Traditional breast reduction requires scars around the areola, vertically down to the bottom of the breast, and then horizontally under the entire breast out into the armpit. This incision is often called a “key hole” or “anchor” type incision and scar. In 1998, Dr. Popp helped pioneer a “scarless” type of breast reduction using liposuction. 2-3 small puncture holes (small enough not to require stitches) are place around each breast as access points for the reduction. Recovery is quick without drains, sutures, or large incisions. This procedure can even be done under local anesthesia if desired.
