Periareolar Breast Lift/ Reduction (Areola) 2007
« on: October 13, 2007, 02:51:34 AM »
New concepts in breast lift and reduction using the simple periareolar scar.  Fashioned from work done for many years in France and South America by Drs Benelli and Sampaio Goes, respectfully. 
 Only 5% of Practices in US offer this technically challenging procedure which serves to reduce the scarring seen with other methods. It is not applicable for the largest reductions or the more extreme lifting situations. 
 We continue to perform these procedures during the past 15 years.  While the lollipop reduction is gaining greater acceptance among surgeons moving from the T scar methodology, the periareolar method is still my choice for all lifts and moderate size reductions. 
 We will be posting some new case photos in the next quarter of 2007 on this exciting limited scar breast surgery. The new website is Southern California Breast Lift and Reduction at   
This method is more advanced than a simple donut breast lift because it involves fashioning an internal bra to help support the breast and a skin repair that incorporates a circular skin closure with permanent blocking suture.
