The vertical incision surgery technique, also known as the “short scar” or LeJour breast reduction, results in a vertical scar that extends from the areola down to the breast crease. Vertical incision breast reductions are appropriate for women who do not require extensive tissue removal. During this technique the excess skin is not removed, it is instead pleated up and therefore patients who undergo vertical incision breast reductions should be prepared for their breasts to appear wrinkled and lumpy for several months following surgery until the excess skin shrinks and smooths out over time. For this reason the technique is not appropriate for women with extremely large breasts requiring extensive tissue removal.
