Application of periareolar mastopexy technique for giant phyllodes tumor resection in an adolescent female with breast asymmetry: a case report and literature review.

J Egypt Natl Canc Inst 2020 Jun 29;32(1):27. Epub 2020 Jun 29.

General Surgery Department, Faculty of Medicine, Qena University Hospital, South Valley University, Qena, Egypt.

Background: The phyllodes tumors are rare neoplastic disease which exhibits a benign behavior in adolescents female. After resection of a large benign breast tumor, insufficient breast contour may result with nipple areola complex malposition. As symmetry of the breast is psychologically extremely crucial, especially in adolescents, in such cases, an immediate mammoplasty-like breast reduction or mastopexy technique of the affected breast will be necessary to provide symmetry of the bilateral breasts at the initial surgery.

Combined Mastopexy and Augmentation with Autologous Fat Grafting: First Results with Lipopexy.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2020 Feb 25;8(2):e1957. Epub 2020 Feb 25.

Private Practice, Bahía Blanca, Argentina.

Background: The treatment of breast ptosis and gland hypoplasia in a single surgery is a challenging procedure and the result is less predictable. In this surgery, the complications mainly concern the prosthesis, such as implant deflation, capsular contracture, palpability, or malposition. We, therefore, propose a different and new technique that avoids breast prosthesis, combining mastopexy and autologous augmentation with fat grafts. Read More

Simultaneous Augmentation Mastopexy: An Innovative Anatomical Approach-The Fascioglandular Flap for Improved Lower Pole Support.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2020 Apr 9. Epub 2020 Apr 9.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, American University of Beirut Medical Center, Beirut, Lebanon.

Simultaneous breast augmentation and mastopexy is very challenging often considered to be one of the most difficult cosmetic breast surgeries. Although a patient is sometimes better served with 2 separately staged procedures, the demand for single-stage combined augmentation mastopexy is increasing associated with increasing demands for larger implants. Combining these 2 operations presents special problems because of the interplay of opposing forces. Read More

[Concomitant breast surgery with a vertical latero-thoracic incision in continuity with a brachioplasty incision: About twelve (12) cases after massive weight loss].

Ann Chir Plast Esthet 2020 Apr 10;65(2):116-123. Epub 2020 Mar 10.

Service de chirurgie plastique esthétique et reconstructrice, centre hospitalo-universitaire de Strasbourg, hôpital de Hautepierre, avenue Molière, 67200 Strasbourg, France.

Introduction: The need of iterative surgeries, the proximity of two anatomical areas, the combination of an aesthetic surgery with a surgery covered by health insurance are the reasons which motivated the authors to provide a simultaneous procedure on arms and breast in patients achieving massive weight loss. We propose a vertical continuation of the lateral mastopexy incision superiorly, in continuity with a simultaneous brachioplasty incision to treat the excess skin and subcutaneous tissue of the lateral chest wall, either by resection, or by increasing the breast with the patients own autologous tissue.

Methods: Between 2010 and 2017, twelve patients aged between 31 and 56 years, with 42 being the average, have undergone a technique that utilises a vertical continuation of the lateral mastopexy incision superiorly, in continuity with a simultaneous brachioplasty incision: transverse skin incisions and free nipple transplantation for correction of extreme gynaecomastia (2 cases), mastopexy with resection of the excess tissue of the lateral chest wall (8 cases), autologous breast augmentation by the use of intercostal artery perforator flaps (2 cases).

Application of Fat Grafting in Cosmetic Breast Surgery.

Semin Plast Surg 2020 Feb 15;34(1):24-29. Epub 2020 Feb 15.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Michael E. DeBakey Department of Surgery, Baylor College of Medicine, Houston, Texas.

The role of fat grafting to the breasts has evolved in the recent past, gaining several new applications within both reconstructive and aesthetic surgery. Initially used for reconstructive purposes to fill lumpectomy defects or to correct residual contour deformities after breast reconstruction, it has since made its way into cosmetic breast surgery and has grown to encompass a wide variety of new indications. Fat grafting in aesthetic breast surgery may be performed as a form of primary autologous breast augmentation or as an adjunct to implant-based breast augmentation to disguise implant edges.

Lower Pole Mastopexy-Augmentation: Indications and Applications.

Authors:
Marc D Pacifico

Aesthet Surg J 2020 Feb 6. Epub 2020 Feb 6.

Dr Pacifico is a plastic surgeon in private practice in Tunbridge Wells, UK.

Background: Breast augmentation in primary or secondary patients with long lower pole lengths but appropriately sited nipples is at high risk of "bottoming out" following surgery. The lower pole mastopexy-augmentation (LPMA) was developed to correct long lower pole lengths or preempt bottoming out in breasts deemed at risk, avoiding the requirement for periareolar and vertical breast scar, as well as minimizing the requirement for the use of synthetic mesh.

Objectives: The goal of this short report was to analyze outcomes in cases undergoing the LPMA to determine its application and limitations. Read More

SMS-Split Muscle Support: A Reproducible Approach for Breast Implant Stabilization.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2020 Jun 16;44(3):698-705. Epub 2019 Dec 16.

Plastic Surgery Division, Pontifical Catholic University of Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, RS, Brazil.

Background: Recent concerns regarding the association between macrotextured breast implants and anaplastic large cell lymphoma (ALCL) have led to renewed interest in the use of devices with less texturing. Smooth implants appear to have a decreased risk of ALCL; however, low implant adherence has led to questions about implant stabilization and bottoming-out. The senior author has used a split muscle support (SMS) technique to help support the implant infero-laterally in over 380 breast augmentations and augmentation-mastopexy using smooth implants, with a low complication and reoperation rate.

Background: The aim of a mastopexy is to raise the breast projection, tighten the skin envelope, and place the nipples in an optimal position in projection to the inframammary fold. This procedure is often combined with prosthetic implants or an autoimplant. Given the current increasing demand for the use of autologous tissue, we evaluated mastopexies combined with either an autoimplant or prosthetic implant in terms of patient satisfaction and long-term results.

Combined Breast Implant Explantation and Multilevel Mastopexy Technique.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 Sep 30;7(9):e2429. Epub 2019 Sep 30.

Borenstein Plastic Surgery Clinic, Tel-Aviv, Israel.

Patients dissatisfied with their breast implants are faced with 2 options: secondary augmentation or removal of the implants. Simple removal of breast implants often leads to wide, deflated, and laterally displaced breasts which are notoriously difficult to reconstruct. We present a surgical technique that was specifically developed to recreate the breast mound using the wide laterally displaced breast tissue left after breast implant removal. Read More

Can It Be Safe and Aesthetic? An Eight-year Retrospective Review of Mastopexy with Concurrent Breast Augmentation.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2019 Jun 12;7(6):e2272. Epub 2019 Jun 12.

Department of Plastic Surgery, Louisiana State University, New Orleans, La.

Background: The safety of concurrently performing mastopexy and breast augmentation is controversial, due to the risk of breast tissue and nipple neurovascular compromise and overall potential high complications rates. This article describes a concurrent procedure of augmentation with implants and a "Tailor-Tack" mastopexy that consistently achieves an aesthetically pleasing breast with acceptable complication rates.

Methods: This is a retrospective chart review of all consecutive breast augmentations performed concurrently with mastopexy using the "Tailor-Tack" technique by the 2 senior authors (M. Read More

Breast Reduction: 33 Years Using a Single Central Block.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2019 12 3;43(6):1480-1488. Epub 2019 Oct 3.

, Fortaleza, Brazil.

Background: Since 1985, the author has been using the single central block technique for breast reduction and mastopexy, prioritizing the good relation between the final breast shape and the length of the scars, different from other authors who emphasize only the shape of the breast (Peixoto in Plast Reconstr Surg 65(2):217-225, 1980; Aesthet Plast Surg 8:231-236, 1984) and others who have drawn attention to the length of the scars (Arié in Rev Latinoam Cir Plast 3:23-31, 1957; Bozola in Plast Reconstr Surg 85:728-738, 1990; Sepúlveda in Rev Bras Cir 71(1):11-18, 1981). In this study, the author describes the use of a single central block of the mammary tissue and the nipple-areolar complex (NAC), dissected from the skin flaps and based on the superior vascular pedicle for reduction mammoplasty and mastopexy (Erfon et al. in Annals of the international symposium recent advances in plastic surgery, São Paulo, 1989; Hinderer (ed) Plastic surgery, Elsevier, Madrid, 1992; Proceedings of the 65th annual scientific meeting of the American society of plastic and reconstructive surgeons, Dallas, 1996).
