Reduction mammaplasty combining a superomedial pedicle with a circumareolar/vertical pattern skin excision avoids an inferior pedicle that can interfere with vertical scar technique, yet it is flexible enough to allow for a short transverse skin excision. This technique is suitable for small to moderate-size reductions.
