This patient had the SPAIR Breast Reduction procedure. The SPAIR technique can allow for a prettier breast by decreasing lateral (outer) fullness and creating a more natural looking breast shape, while at the same time decreasing the incisions on the breasts. The incision with the SPAIR technique is around the nipple-areolar complexes (pigmented region around the nipples) with a vertical incision down (like a lollipop).

After surgery, the patient's breast size was more proportionate to the rest of her body frame. The patient is pictured before and one year following surgery.
