Augmentation Mastopexy: A Five-step Standardized Strategy Approach.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2022 Jun 15;10(6):e4349. Epub 2022 Jun 15.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, Egypt.

Planning a combined procedure requires ensuring an optimal fill of the reduced breast skin envelope, which in turn requires a system to quantify skin excess to ensure that the selected implant achieves that optimal fill. This has led us to develop a five-step approach that a surgical team can use to assess patients scheduled to undergo an augmentation mastopexy and arrive at an optimal surgical strategy.

Methods: This retrospective study included 50 consecutive cases where layered mastopexies combined with augmentation mammaplasties were performed. Read More

Neal Handel

Ann Plast Surg 2022 May 30. Epub 2022 May 30.

From the Division of Plastic Surgery, David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, Los Angeles, CA.

Abstract: Crescent mastopexy is an operation that is often maligned and infrequently used. However, it can be a useful adjunct both in primary augmentation mammaplasty and in secondary breast revision cases. The key to achieving good results with this procedure lies in conceptualizing the operation in 3 dimensions rather than 2. Read More

Modified goldilocks nipple-sparing mastectomy with immediate prepectoral implant-based reconstruction: a case report.

Gland Surg 2022 May;11(5):927-931

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MedStar Georgetown University Hospital, Washington, DC, USA.

Background: Nearly 80% of women who undergo post-mastectomy reconstruction opt for implant-based reconstruction. Preservation of the nipple-areolar complex (NAC) in nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) significantly improves patient satisfaction; however in women with macromastia or breast ptosis, NAC preservation carries an increased risk of nipple ischemia. Traditional options have included free nipple grafts or a staged reconstruction, however in patients with aggressive or multifocal breast cancer, this is not feasible due to the need for timely oncologic resection.

Split Inferior Pedicle: The 1-Stage Augmentation Mastopexy for Grade 3 Ptosis.

Aesthet Surg J Open Forum 2022 14;4:ojac017. Epub 2022 Mar 14.

Department of General Surgery, Weill-Cornell NYP, New York City, NY, USA.

In this article, the authors describe the 1-stage surgical technique that has been used by the senior author since 1990 for all his primary grade 2 and grade 3 augmentation-mastopexies. The article provides a safe, simple, and reproducible approach to a challenging procedure, one that tends to be the most litigious in aesthetic breast surgery. The key points of this technique are simple preoperative markings; the augmentation is performed with a true submuscular placement of smooth implants; and the mastopexy is performed with an inferior pedicle technique with unlimited skin flap undermining and no limitation of nipple elevation.

Mastopexy: with or without Acellular Dermal Matrix?

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2022 Apr 28;10(4):e3952. Epub 2022 Apr 28.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Faculty of Medicine, Cairo University, Egypt.

In the years after unilateral breast reconstruction, the reconstructed breast resists ptosis more than natural breast tissue in the native contralateral breast. As acellular dermal matrix (ADM) becomes fully incorporated into the recipient's anatomy, thus reinforcing the inferior pole of the uplifted breast, we combined our mastopexy cases with ADM in an attempt to reduce the rate of recurrent ptosis.

Method: This was a prospective randomized analysis of a cohort of 24 patients, divided into two groups (A and B); all underwent primary unilateral mastopexy to correct grade III breast ptosis. Read More

Heavy Metals in Breast Implant Capsules and Breast Tissue: Findings from the Systemic Symptoms in Women-Biospecimen Analysis Study: Part 2.

Aesthet Surg J 2022 Apr 26. Epub 2022 Apr 26.

Clinical instructor of surgery, Washington University, St. Louis, MO, USA.

Background: Breast Implant Illness (BII), as described in recent medical literature and by social media, describes a range of symptoms in patients with breast implants for which there are no physical findings or laboratory results that explain their symptoms. The Aesthetic Surgery Education and Research Foundation (ASERF) Biospecimen study utilized a convergent design to prospectively study both qualitative systemic symptom data and quantitative heavy metals analysis of tissue obtained in surgery.

Objectives: Part two of this study aims to determine whether heavy metals are present in the capsules around both saline and silicone implants and if there is a statistical difference in the type or level of these metals between women with or without symptoms. Read More

A Novel Application of the Haemostatic Net in Aesthetic Breast Surgery: A Preliminary Report.

Aesthet Surg J 2022 Mar 16. Epub 2022 Mar 16.

Private practice, London, United Kingdom.

Background: Obtaining optimum breast aesthetics can be challenging in secondary aesthetic breast surgery, particularly with poor quality skin, when downsizing implants and in cases where patients will not accept additional mastopexy scars. Most techniques described in these cases rely on internal suturing and capsulorrhaphy, which can lack precision in tailoring the skin over the internal pocket.

Objectives: The authors present their experience using the haemostatic net to help address a range of challenging breast cases in their practices. Read More

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
