Prior to the intervention I will make markings on each breast with a black marking pen outlining the place of the new nipple and the amount of skin that I will remove. Don’t use body lotion or crème so that my drawing will not rub off.
There are different techniques that I use: the “anchor-shaped incision”, the “keyhole method” and a combination of the two. All techniques will leave a scare around the nipple. The keyhole method, with a vertical coupe line in the lower part of the breast and of course around the nipple, is only suitable for breasts which aren’t too large and for the breast lift
During the procedure the nipple is moved upwards on a thick pedicle. Then, the tissue from the breast gland underneath the breast is loosened from the breast muscle, after which the excess tissue is removed to the extent necessary. Thereafter the remaining tissue will be shaped into the new, smaller breast. The operation takes 2 hours.
