FAQ-Aesthetic Breast Surgery

What method do you use for reduction mammaplasty? If you use more than one technique, what would determine which technique would be best for the patient?

Answer from Dr. Kremer:

The approach used for breast reduction varies and is based mostly on the size of the patient's breasts, the amount desired to be removed as well as the patient's tissue quality. I use several different technique and personally favour periareolar and vertical mammaplasty approaches, designed to decrease the amount of scarring, to maximize blood supply to the nipple and minimize the risk of damaging sensation to the nipple. However, if a large reduction of breast tissue is necessary, an inverted T-scar will remain, that fortunately for most cases hides nicely below the breast fold and is generally accepted by patients for the trade-off.

For your own safety, I require each patient to undergo a mammography before surgery and the removed breast tissue is being sent to pathology to rule out any forms of so far undetected breast cancer.

Dr. Kremer, I have been considering breast augmentation surgery for quite a while and have a question: do you ever do the armpit insertion, if a patient is suitable. I wish to preserve as much nipple sensation as possible and dislike scars around the nipple. I am 42. Is this too old? Thank You!

Answer from Dr. Kremer:

Breast augmentation in a 42-year-old is not an uncommon procedure. As patient's age, their breasts become more ptotic (droopy) and sometimes an additional breast lift needs to be done. I personally prefer the armpit approach due to my good personal experience with this method while working in the US as this leaves only an almost invisible scar behind.

I almost always use saline-filled prostheses that are being placed underneath the pectoralis muscle. Permanent sensation changes of the nipple hardly ever occur with this method.

I am from Abu Dhabi and plan on visiting Germany this summer. After I am thinking a lot about breast reduction surgery, I would like to ask you what method you use at your center for reduction mammaplasty? If you use more than one technique, what would determine which technique would be best for the patient? Do I need to bring preoperative tests from here?

For your own safety, we require each patient to undergo a mammography before surgery and the removed breast tissue is being sent to pathology to rule out any forms of so far undetected breast cancer. We are cooperating with well respected and well equipped radiology centers and can arrange for the necessary preoperative diagnostics here so that you do not need to undergo these tests in Abu Dhabi.

We look forward to seeing you this summer! Please, arrange to stay around for about 3 weeks after surgery to that we can make sure that the healing process is o.k. before you return to the UAE.
