Procedures that minimize the resultant scars while achieving comparable results are preferred by patients and greatly enhance their overall satisfaction. Suction mammaplasty-and indeed all short-scar procedures that are performed on the breast, face, and body-rely to variable degrees on harnessing the under-appreciated capability of the skin to shrink or retract. Patients with breast hypertrophy represent a wide spectrum of deformities based on NAC size, shape, and location, skin quality and tone, and breast volume.

Suction mammaplasty represents one of a number of methods of reduction mammaplasty that can be selected according to variations in anatomy, patient desires, and surgeon preference.
