Huntington Station Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Charlotte Rhee, Explains the Benefits of the Short Scar or "Lollipop" Breast Reduction
February 27, 2013 (Newswire.com) - Huntington Station, NY For women with troublesome large breasts, breast reduction surgery can be a life-changing procedure. Working to achieve a smaller, more proportionate bust line, Long Island Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Charlotte Rhee, explains how one breast reduction technique is growing more and more popular among her patients.
Traditionally, breast reduction surgery has required three incisions — one around the areola, one from the areola to below the breast and finally, a distinct anchor-shaped incision below the breast," explains Dr. Rhee. "A short-scar, or 'lollipop' breast reduction, eliminates that final incision." Named for its incision pattern, a lollipop breast reduction removes excess tissue and tightens overlying skin to achieve smaller, lighter breasts.
Commenting on the rising popularity of this breast reduction technique, Dr. Rhee added this: "For our practice, lollipop breast procedures are quickly on the rise," reports Dr. Rhee. "In terms of what's driving this trend, we feel it's simply a result of patients loving their results and sharing their success stories with friends and family members."
Asked to speak on a few important benefits of the short-scar approach, Dr. Rhee offered this: "One of the most important advantages of this technique is less post-surgical scarring," reports Dr. Rhee. "Patients can now enjoy dramatic results, without an unsightly inverted-T scar." Dr. Rhee also cited a shorter recovery time and less insult to the body as other potential benefits.
Offering advice to women seeking more information, Dr. Rhee concluded with this: "Uncomfortably large breasts can affect a woman both physically and emotionally. This is why we encourage anyone dealing with the condition to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon in their area and find out more about their treatment options - including the cutting-edge lollipop technique."
