Double incision/Bilateral mastectomy - The double incision technique is effective for individuals with a medium to large amount of breast tissue (cup size C and above, often also recommended for cup size B). In this method, large incisions are made horizontally across each breast, usually below the nipple. The skin is then peeled back so that the mammary glands and fatty tissue can be removed with a scalpel. The muscles of the chest are not touched. Certain areas of harder-to-reach fatty tissue may also be removed via liposuction (such as areas near the armpits). Once the breast tissue has been removed, the excess chest skin is trimmed and the incisions closed, leaving two seams/scars just below the line of the pectoral muscles.


Keyhole/Peri-areolar incision - The keyhole and peri-areolar techniques are effective for individuals with small amounts of breast tissue (cup size A or smaller is ideal; sometimes recommended by certain surgeons for cup size B). They are both done via incisions around the areola (the area of darker skin around the nipple), though the techniques differ slightly. In the keyhole method, a small incision is made along the border of the areola (usually along the bottom), and the breast tissue is removed via a liposuction needle through the incision. The nipple is left attached to the body via a pedicle (a stalk of tissue) in order to maintain sensation. Once the breast tissue has been removed, the incision is closed. The nipple is usually not resized or repositioned.
