Name Optima date 2012-04-16

The vertical incision, which supplements the weaknesses of both the periareolar incision and inverted T method, is acknowledged to be the best method of breast reduction surgery in the world. It has the advantage of allowing for large amounts of removal and leaves only a small scar.

 

However, this procedure requires a doctor with a high level of surgical ability and a lot of experience.

 

Director Lee, Anna of Optima Plastic Surgery Clinic performs precise and safe surgeries and has a wealth of experience having performed surgeries with Dr. Eder and Professor Lejour who establish this surgical method.

 

Vertical incision supplements the weaknesses of periareolar incision and inverted T method

 

At present, the best surgical method in breast reduction surgery is the vertical incision breast reduction surgery. However, the surgical method is very difficult and there are only a handful of doctors who can perform breast reduction surgery using this method and guarantee satisfying results.

Periareolar incision is the method to perform surgery by leaving minimal scarring, but there is a limitation on the size of breasts that can be operated on. In the case of the inverted T method, it is possible to remove great amounts of tissue, but it leaves too big of a scar, so it reduces satisfaction in patients. The breast reduction surgical method that was newly established to have the strengths but not the weaknesses of these two surgeries is the vertical incision (Dr. Lejour method).

 

Surgical method of vertical incision breast reduction surgery (Dr. Lejour method)

 

Dr. Lejour’s method (vertical incision breast reduction surgery) allows for the removal of breast tissue by making a vertical incision of about 4~5cm after incising the areola. It is possible to apply this method regardless of breast size, and only a very small scar is left compared to traditional methods (inverted T incision).

In addition, it is easy to predict surgical results even in the case of big breasts. Also the satisfaction of patient is very high, so Optima Plastic Surgery Clinic performs most surgeries with this vertical incision. It has a high level of difficulty and it is complicated, so it is important to choose a doctor who has abundant experience performing this type of surgery. If a qualified doctor is not chosen, then it is impossible to remove enough tissue and scars may be bigger compared to other methods.

The vertical incision breast reduction surgery was quickly developed by Dr. Lejour of Belgium in the 1980s, since the first attempt in 1964. For this reason, Vertical incision breast reduction surgery is called “Lejour breast reduction surgery”.
