Ann Plast Surg 2019 Jan 9. Epub 2019 Jan 9.

Columbia University Vagelos College of Physicians and Surgeons, New York, NY.

Background: Pediatric breast masses cause concern for both the patient and their family, although malignancy represents less than 1% of lesions in this population. No studies have systematically described resection and reconstructive methods for different sizes and locations of pediatric breast fibroadenomas. The aim of this study was to perform a recent systematic review of the literature regarding the surgical resection of pediatric breast fibroadenomas and to propose an algorithm for safe and effective treatment that maximizes both therapeutic and aesthetic goals while acknowledging possible future need for nipple-sparing mastectomy.

Muscle-Splitting Augmentation-Mastopexy: Implant Protection With an Inferior Dermoglandular Flap.

Ann Plast Surg 2019 Feb;82(2):137-144

Hospital Moinhos de Vento, Porto Alegre, Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil.

Simultaneous augmentation-mastopexy can achieve excellent patient and surgeon satisfaction but continues to pose a challenge, with revision rates of up to 25%. Recurrent ptosis and poor overall breast shape are 2 common reasons for reoperation, whereas some of the most feared complications is breast implant exposure, infection, and loss secondary to wound breakdown; excessively large implants or too much tension during closure are possible contributing factors. We describe a technique for augmentation-mastopexy combining a muscle-splitting pocket for implant placement along with an inferior flap, which helps secure the implant in place and provides coverage in case of wound dehiscence.

New Approach to Oncoplastic Breast Conservation: Combining Autologous Volume Replacement and the Wise-pattern Mammaplasty.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2018 Oct 16;6(10):e1987. Epub 2018 Oct 16.

Georgia Breast Surgery, Lawrenceville, Ga.

Background: Oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery describes a set of techniques that allow for generous oncological resection with immediate tumor-specific reconstruction. These techniques are classically divided into either volume displacement (local breast flaps and or reduction mammaplasty/mastopexy strategies) versus volume replacement strategies (transfer of autologous nonbreast tissue from a local or distant site and, less commonly, implant placement). There have been few descriptions of merging these 2 classical approaches to facilitate breast-conserving surgery. Read More

Pain Management and Body Contouring.

Clin Plast Surg 2019 Jan;46(1):33-39

Section of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Yale School of Medicine, PO Box 208062, New Haven, CT 06520-8062, USA. Electronic address:

Body contouring procedure is a catchall that includes mastopexy, abdominoplasty, liposuction, and lower body lift. It is well known that optimal postoperative pain control decreases hospitalization length of stay and promotes early ambulation, which in turn decreases the incidence of complications. There have been many innovations in pain control beyond opiate medications, including prolonged administration of local anesthesia, regional blocks, and the use of a multimodal regimen which utilizes nonopiates.

Why Choose the Septum-Supero-Medial (SSM)-Based Mammaplasty in Patients with Severe Breast Ptosis: An Anatomical Point of View.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Dec 9;42(6):1439-1446. Epub 2018 Jul 9.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Emergency and Organ Transplantation, University of Bari, Piazza Giulio Cesare 11, 70124, Bari, Italy.

Nipple-areola complex (NAC) loss is one of the most devastating complications of mastopexy or breast reduction, and it requires revisional procedures with poor aesthetic outcome. In high-risk patients, a free nipple graft could be a choice, but it is associated with the same aesthetic concerns for both patients and surgeons. We report our experience with the septum-supero-medial-based mammaplasty to treat 22 patients with severe breast ptosis (nipple-to-sternal-notch distance > 40 cm). Read More

Anatomic and terminological description and processing of breast pathologic specimens from oncoplastic large volume displacement surgeries.

Mod Pathol 2018 Jul 15;31(7):1004-1011. Epub 2018 Feb 15.

Department of Surgery, Tufts Medical Center, Boston, MA, USA.

Oncoplastic surgery provides breast cancer patients with greater aesthetic satisfaction without compromising disease-free survival or overall survival rate. Large volume displacement oncoplastic surgical techniques have become increasingly popular as a strategy for improving aesthetic outcomes and extending the option of breast conservation therapy. They often involve breast reduction or mastopexy reconstructive techniques to facilitate resection of large breast volumes on the side of the breast cancer and accompanied with symmetry contralateral breast reductions or mastopexies.

The Use of Poly-4-Hydroxybutyrate (P4HB) Scaffold in the Ptotic Breast: A Multicenter Clinical Study.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Apr;38(5):502-518

Clinical Associate Professor, Department of Plastic Surgery, Indiana University School of Medicine, Indianapolis, IN.

Background: Mastopexy and reduction mammaplasty are often limited by the patient's poor native soft tissue quality, resulting in ptosis recurrence and loss of rejuvenated surgical results. Surgical scaffolds and acellular dermal matrices are used in these procedures to provide physical and mechanical stabilization of weakened or compromised tissue. GalaFLEX scaffold, made from poly-4-hydroxybutyrate (P4HB), is a next-generation product for soft tissue reinforcement that resorbs gradually while aiding tissue regeneration to achieve excellent outcomes.

Secondary Mastopexy After Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy and Staged Subcutaneous Expander/Implant Reconstruction.

Ann Plast Surg 2018 May;80(5):475-480

Background: The acceptance of nipple-sparing mastectomy for the treatment of breast cancer in selected patients has introduced ancillary procedures to improve breast shape, correct ptosis, and enhance breast symmetry. Mastopexy before or at the time of nipple-sparing mastectomy has been performed to correct ptosis, but there have been no reports on secondary Wise pattern mastopexy after completion of staged subcutaneous expander/implant reconstruction.

Methods: Between 2005 and 2015, 155 patients (255 breasts) underwent staged subcutaneous implant/expander-based reconstruction after inframammary nipple-sparing mastectomy. Read More

The Use of Meshed Dermal Autograft in Breast Reconstruction.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Dec 1;42(6):1704-1706. Epub 2018 Feb 1.

Clinic of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Academic Hospital of Udine, Department of Medical Science, University of Udine, Udine, Italy.

The advantages and disadvantages of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) in breast reconstruction have been well documented. ADM is commonly used in breast reconstruction, but it adds cost to the procedure and has been associated with an increased risk of seroma, flap necrosis and infectious complications. A dermal autograft may be a useful alternative to matrices, and it has a lot of advantages: more biocompatible and more likely to be retained as a free graft, low cost, well tolerated, readily available and integrated.

Mastopexy and Mastopexy-Augmentation.

Aesthet Surg J 2018 Mar;38(4):374-384

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Washington University School of Medicine, St. Louis, MO.

Mastopexy and mastopexy-augmentation are aesthetic breast surgeries that seek to create youthful, beautiful appearing breasts. Age, hormonal changes, or weight loss can lead to alterations that require addressing the skin envelope and breast parenchyma. Many surgical approaches have been described including periareolar, vertical, and Wise pattern techniques, but most modern mastopexies include manipulation of the breast parenchyma to improve the longevity of breast ptosis correction.

Surg Innov 2018 Apr 12;25(2):110-114. Epub 2018 Jan 12.

1 Bulent Ecevit University, Zonguldak, Turkey.

Introduction: Preoperative planning is an essential prerequisite for the success of plastic surgery. In procedures such as breast reduction, freehand drawings may be associated with a number of challenges during the determination of axes vertical and parallel to the surgical site. Furthermore, many procedures involve subjective maneuvers, such as attempts aimed at positioning both nipples on the same line and transferring nipple-areola complexes in a well-matched manner.

Flap-Mastopexy in Autologous Breast Reconstruction: Timing and Technique.

Ann Plast Surg 2018 Apr;80(4):328-332

Background: Techniques in breast reconstruction have significantly advanced the possibility to create more natural and aesthetically appealing breasts. Despite thorough preoperative planning and vigilant operative technique, symmetry remains a concern for select patients who have undergone autologous breast reconstruction. Although symmetry procedures of the contralateral breast have been well described in the literature, little has been published regarding secondary revision in the autologous reconstructed breast, leaving uncertainty as to the appropriate timing and technique for revision procedures that will not hinder the viability of the flap.
