Breast Reduction — Norfolk Size Correction

The primary function of a breast reduction is to reduce the size of the breasts by removing excess tissue and skin. Considering every patient is different and the amount of reduction needed depends on the individual, there is more than just one way to execute the surgery. There are several incision options available.

When it comes to the incision for a breast reduction, a patient can opt for a circular pattern around the areola.

A keyhole-shaped pattern is similar to the first one but has an added incision running vertical down to the crease of the breast.

The inverted-T, or anchor-shaped, incision gets its name because it is shaped like an anchor. It is similar to the keyhole, except it also runs along the crease of the breast. This is the most comprehensive incision pattern used for the more dramatic breast reductions.
