Subglandular-to-Subpectoral Conversion with Mastopexy: The Four-Step Approach.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2022 Feb;149(2):209e-215e

From private practice.

Background: Because of the multiplying number of patients undergoing breast augmentation, nonprimary augmentation mastopexy will be increasingly requested in the future; this operation represents an even more significant challenge than primary augmentation mastopexy. The authors describe a standardized approach for subglandular-to-subpectoral implant pocket conversion in mastopexy that provides a tight neopocket with inferolateral muscular support, which minimizes implant displacement complications and allows operative strategies to reduce the risk of bacterial load on implants.

Methods: The authors' technique proposes the following: (1) modified subpectoral pocket, with muscular inferolateral support for the implant; (2) independent approaches to the submuscular pocket and subglandular (preexisting) pocket; and (3) preestablished four-step surgical sequence. Read More

The "Shirt Pocket" Technique-An Alternative for Augmentation-Mastopexy.

Indian J Plast Surg 2021 Sep 17;54(3):362-366. Epub 2021 Sep 17.

Division of Plastic Surgery of the Federal University of São Paulo, São Paulo, Brazil.

Augmentation-mastopexy is a frequent procedure with high rates of early recurrence of breast ptosis, mainly after subglandular approach. The dual-plane techniques, based on the cranial dissection of the pectoralis, is the most used, but this plane does not cover the inferior pole of the breast. Then, the possibility of a downward dissection of the muscle seems to be more reasonable to retain the implant and improve postoperative results. Read More

Subfascial versus Subglandular Breast Augmentation: A Randomized Prospective Evaluation Considering a 5-Year Follow-Up.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 Oct;148(4):760-770

From the Plastic Surgery Service, Hospital de Clínicas, Federal University of Paraná; private practice; Hospital Erasto Gaertner; and Diagnóstico Avançado por Imagem (Advanced Diagnostic Imaging Center).

Background: Subfascial breast augmentation is becoming popular because of a better understanding of breast anatomy. However, because the subglandular approach is also another popular method, it is critical to assess the influence of the superficial fascia of the pectoralis major muscle on the subfascial and subglandular pockets to determine if one method is superior to another. This study investigated whether there are clinical/radiological differences between subfascial and subglandular pockets following primary breast augmentation. Read More

Relation Between Post-Augmentation Parenchymal Atrophy and Local Tissue Pressure.

Aesthet Surg J 2021 10;41(11):NP1486-NP1495

Division of Mechanical Engineering PUC RIO, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

Background: Breast parenchyma interacts dynamically with an inserted implant, which may lead to local atrophy and sensory involvement, changes in vascular tissue and lactation, and volume reduction over time. The inversely proportional relationship between pressure and volume cannot be stated with certainty; that is, the larger implants having more local pressure would lead to compression, thus leading to atrophy of parenchyma more intensely compared with smaller implants. The objective of this study was to assess and list breast parenchyma volume changes with different pressure levels due to silicone implants of several sizes. Read More

Pectoralis Major Median Myotomy: The Median Cut.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2020 Feb;145(2):330-332

From the Department of Plastic Surgery, Kaplan Medical Center.

Dual-plane breast augmentation offers the advantages of a subpectoral implant location with the ability to expand its use to glandular ptotic and constricted lower pole breasts. Alas, high implant position or very loose breast tissue can lead to a notorious breast shape known as the "waterfall deformity." To prevent many of these undesired deformities, the authors introduce a novel pectoralis major median myotomy they call the "median cut. Read More
