This 47 year old woman had a prior breast reduction 20 years ago and noted sagging of her breasts. She wanted a fuller appearing breast with a small amount of reduction. Her Wise pattern ( anchor scar) was used and additional skin resected as well as a small amount of extra fat. Some liposuction was also performed. Many woman inquire as to whether a breast reduction will have to repeated later in life. Unless there is a lot more weight gain- the answer is usually not. However- loose saggy skin can be addressed - often with a mastopexy- rather than a formal repeat reduction. The incisions are often the same but the difference is that minimal breast tissue is removed.
