This is one reason why Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic offers several types of breast reduction that are aimed to suit each client’s individual circumstances. After choosing the method that best suits you, Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic promises our entire focus and dedication in your treatment.

Main purpose of breast reduction is to expect breast lifting. What causes breasts to develop to an abnormally large size?
01. A larger chest can be due to hormonal secretion. This is not a health hazard and simply arises due to genetics. In this situation, the chest often develops in one’s teenage years.
02. A larger chest can originate from an abnormal and excessive secretion of hormones.
03. Abnormally large breasts can develop due to obesity.
There are four types of incisions for a breast reduction procedure:
Also called as O-shape incision in Korea, since the incision shape is similar to the Korean character 오(called as O). This incision goes through the mandible to the fold under the chest. Typographical incisions are a common method used worldwide and reduces the breast with a more corrective effect. Additionally, the nipple position can be corrected. This incision is used if the chest is too large and sags.
Also called as Lollipop incision. This type of incision reduces the size of the breast to create a more natural shape with the potential to correct sagging breasts. Vertical incision is operable on almost any size and shape of chest. Additionally, it preserves the nipple sensation and allows for breastfeeding.
Also called as donut incision. Areola incision is useful for nearly invisible scarring and preservation of the papillary sensation which makes breastfeeding possible. In addition, it results in one of the shortest surgery times.
This method reduces breast size by removing the fat in one’s chest. It is particularly effective for those with fatty breasts and no sagging due to strong skin elasticity. Liposuction leaves no scars and patients are less likely to experience the loss of papillary sensations. This method has an extremely high satisfaction rate among clients.
Gynecomastia is a common condition which results in enlarged male breast tissue. It can occur in both teenage years or adulthood, due to an imbalance between oestrogen and testosterone. In some cases, symptoms get better as one enters adulthood and therefore this treatment is not recommended for teenagers.
There are three types of chest sizes common among male patients:
This physique has more glandular tissue than fat
This physique has more fat than glandular tissue
This physique has equal amount of glandular tissue and fat
Before carrying out a gynecomastia procedure, your physique will be discussed in detail with Doctor An to choose the best type of operation for your unique shape.
There are two main methods for a gynecomastia procedure:
A minimal incision is made on the areola line to remove fat through ultrasound and laser. For those aiming to achieve a more muscular chest shape, suction surgery is additionally recommended to outline the pectoralis major muscle.
Nipple lifting improves displaced nipples such as those that are elongated, sagging, or oversized. Adjusting the nipple position offers a more balanced and natural appearance.
Lydian Plastic Surgery Clinic typically treats gynecomastia with both liposuction and nipple lifting. However, if you have accumulated chest fat due to obesity, only liposuction is possible. If the position of nipples and areolas are displaced abnormally, only a nipple lifting procedure is recommended. If the symptoms are caused by a combination of the two, both methods can be completed at the same time.
