The Areola and T-cut Combination Incision is most commonly used for breast reduction. The Areola and T-cut incision combines the advantages and improves the disadvantages of the existing incision methods for breast reduction. It is considered the best among the developed methods so far. The Areola and T-cut incision is carefully sutured and leaves a minimal scar on the bottom of the breast line and removes the desired amount of breast tissue. Out of all methods, the largest amounts of mammary tissue, fat, and skin are removed after an incision around the areola along with a 4-5cm incision from the areola to the inframammary fold, a boundary of where the breast and the chest meet. This method can be applied to any breast size, allowing a large amount of reduction with a minimum scar. The operation time is relatively reduced, as the incision line is small, resulting in an aesthetically pleasing, round and ample breast shape.
