Lollipop Breast Reduction
- Category: Breast Reduction Q&A
Lollipop scars on breast reduction are found around the areola, extending vertically down the breast crease.
There is less scarring in the lollipop breast reduction technique because it is less invasive and less disruptive to glandular breast tissues compared to the anchor technique.
The lollipop incision is a type of incision used for breast reduction procedures that's typically performed when less breast tissue and skin are needed to be removed.
It's an incision that goes around the nipple areolar complex that extends vertically down to the crease underneath the breast called the inframammary fold.
It's different from the anchor in that the anchor extends all the way along the inframammary fold. Again, this is an incision that's used primarily in breasts that require less of excision of breast tissue and skin.
