You can choose one or combine any of the following techniques
The surgeon makes a curved, oblique, or vertical buttonhole at the top of the pectoral muscle and the breast tissue to remove excess skin.
- Double Incision
It applies in the case of large or overhanging breasts or too much loose skin. The surgeon will remove both the breast tissue and excess skin through two major incisions; below the breast and higher above the nipple. They join the two to create one scar. Also, they remove the nipple complex, resized, and then grafted onto the chest in the desired position. They protect the nipples with a surgical sponge for about eight days.
- Inverted –T/T-Anchor
The technique is ideal for patients with medium to large-chested men who want to retain the most sensation in the nipple-areola complex. Just like double incision, the surgeon opens the skin on the chest along two horizontal incisions; the top and bottom pectoral muscle although they don’t affect the muscle. Once the procedure is over, they pull the skin back and remove the breast tissue. In some cases, further liposuction may be necessary for adjusting the contour.
It is ideal for women with small breasts or those with B-sized chests and excellent skin elasticity. Your surgeon makes an incision all around the boarder of the areola then an additional second and larger concentric circle which results in a ring of skin to be removed. Also, the doctor might suggest liposuction and breast tissue where a drawstring method is used to fasten the skin together and connect it to the edges of the areola. In this technique, the nipple stalk remains intact, but some resize the nipple to maintain nerve sensation.
It is ideal for men with small chests. The surgeon makes a small incision along the bottom of the areola and removes the breast tissue using liposuction via the incision. Just like peri-areola, the nipple stalk remains intact, and they resize the nipple to keep the nerve sensation alive.
- Minimal Scar
The minimal scar is perfect for transmen with smaller chests and goo skin elasticity. The surgery involves only a small incision on the side of the chest and part around the areola. It is a minimally-invasive procedure that leaves almost invisible scars after healing. The nipple sensation remains intact making it an ideal choice for a patient. With a revision scan, you can improve results.
