Inframammary Flap Excision Method in Breast Augmentation: Improving Symmetry of NAC and IMF.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Dec 17;6(12):e2052. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Pusan National University School of Medicine, Busan, Korea.

Background: When we perform a breast augmentation through the inframammary fold (IMF) approach, incision placement at the new IMF is a key element of the planning process. In the majority of the previously published methods, the new IMF was planned based on the nipple-areola complex (NAC) position. However, these methods can lead to asymmetry in the IMF if the NAC is not symmetrical. Read More

Sub-muscular plane for augmentation mammoplasty patients increases silicone gel implant rupture rate.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2018 Nov 22. Epub 2018 Nov 22.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Assaf Harofeh Medical Center, Zerifin 70300, Israel.

Background: Breast augmentation is one of the most common aesthetic procedures performed worldwide. One of the worst associated complications is implant rupture, a topic that will be addressed in the present study. The risk of developing silicone gel breast implant rupture following breast augmentation is associated with multiple factors, including: older generation implant, increased implant age, implant type, specific manufacturer, severe capsular contracture (Baker grade III or IV), and the presence of local symptoms.

Iatrogenic Symmastia: Causes and Suggested Repair Technique.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Aug 21. Epub 2018 Aug 21.

Division of Plastic Surgery, The University of Texas Medical Branch, Galveston, TX.

Background: Various theories exist to explain the etiology of iatrogenic symmastia. Subglandular over-dissection of the medial breast pocket over the sternum, disruption of midline sternal fascia, oversized implant base diameter, and over-dissection of the medial pectoralis muscle attachments to the sternum are popular explanations.

Objective: We hypothesize that the most common risk factor for iatrogenic symmastia is subpectoral breast augmentation. Read More

Endoscopic transaxillary prepectoral conversion for submuscular breast implants.

Arch Plast Surg 2018 Mar 5;45(2):158-164. Epub 2018 Mar 5.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Soonchunhyang University Hospital, Seoul, Korea.

Background: During breast augmentation, the transaxillary approach provides the advantage of allowing the mammary prosthesis to be placed through incisions that are remote from the breast itself, thereby reducing the visibility of postoperative scars. For patients experiencing capsular contracture who do not want additional scars, the previous transaxillary scar can be used for site change and implant exchange.

Methods: This study analyzed 17 patients (34 breasts) with submuscular breast implants with grade III-IV capsular contracture who received treatment from 2010 to 2015. Read More

The waterfall effect in breast augmentation.

Authors:
James Frame

Gland Surg 2017 Apr;6(2):193-202

Faculty of Medical Science, Anglia Ruskin University, Chelmsford, Essex, UK.

The 'waterfall effect' is a descriptive term to indicate a sliding ptosis of parenchymal breast tissue over a fixed or encapsulated implant. It occurs more frequently than surgeons anticipate and especially over the longer term after augmentation. Certain breast implants are more prone to contribute to this problem as are implants placed in submuscular pockets that ride high, especially in women with anatomical musculoskeletal variance or asymmetry.
