location for the nipple, which will be moved into a higher
position once the excess skin is removed. When it is has been
taken out, the skin around the areola is taken down and the
breast is given a new shape.
Once the process is finishes, stitches
are used to close the incisions and are usually placed in
a vertical line downwards from the nipple, along the lower
crease of the breast.

incisions are used and made in a circular fashion; this way,
doughnut-shaped portions of skin are removed from the breast,
giving it a more youthful looking contour.
