The most common incision for breast reduction is an “anchor” incision which is made around your areolas, vertically from the areola to the crease of the breast and then horizontally along the bottom crease of the breast. The size of the areola is reduced during the procedure. With limited breast reduction procedures the scar can sometimes be reduced to a “lollipop” type scar.
