    Air drainage: an essential technique for preventing breast augmentation-related pneumothorax.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2007 Jan-Feb;31(1):19-22
    Rosebank Clinic, P.O. Box 1708, Parklands, 2121, Johannesburg, South Africa.
    Background: Pneumothorax is one of the most poorly understood and least frequently reported complications associated with breast augmentation, yet this complication presents as a dramatic and often extremely distressing event to both the patient and the surgeon. In addition, this complication is associated with an estimated 10% occurrence of medicolegal consequence. A recent survey of 363 Californian Plastic Surgeons concerning the occurrence and outcome of breast augmentation related Pneumothorax suggested that the incidence of this complication could be more prevalent than previously reported.

    Dual plane breast augmentation: optimizing implant-soft-tissue relationships in a wide range of breast types.
    Plast Reconstr Surg 2006 Dec;118(7 Suppl):81S-98S; discussion 99S-102S
    Dallas, Texas, USA.
    In breast augmentation, surgeons usually choose a pocket location for the implant behind breast parenchyma (retromammary), partially behind the pectoralis major muscle (partial retropectoral), or totally behind pectoralis major and serratus (total submuscular). Each of these implant pocket locations has specific indications, but each also has a unique set of tradeoffs. When applied to a wide range of breast types, each pocket location has limitations.

    Maximizing the use of precapsular space and the choice of implant type in breast augmentation mammaplasty revisions: review of 49 consecutive procedures and patient satisfaction assessment.
    Aesthetic Plast Surg 2011 Oct 1;35(5):828-38. Epub 2011 Apr 1.
    Divisione di Chirurgia Plastica e Ricostruttiva, Clinica Ars Medica, Via C. Ferrero di Cambiano, 29, 00191, Roma, Italy.
    Background: Capsular contracture, implant malposition and displacement, breast asymmetry, improper contour, and symmastia may compromise the aesthetic outcome of breast augmentation and usually require surgical correction. Correction of these deformities may be achieved by accommodating a new implant in a novel pocket created in the precapsular space in either the subpectoral or subglandular plane. This article describes a modality to correct adverse results of augmentation mammaplasty and evaluates patient satisfaction. Read More
