The Inverted T incision is an incision used in breast reduction surgery which entails the making of three cuts. The first cut is made around the areolas, the second cut is made from the nipples to the bottom of the breast, and the final cut is made horizontally, at the bottom of the breast. The incisions create an anchor shape. The anchor incision is creates the biggest amount of space in the breast, allowing for the extraction of a significant amount of excess fat and tissue.
