Immediate Reconstruction of Large Ptotic Breasts following Vertical Reduction Pattern Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy.

J Breast Cancer 2021 Apr 29. Epub 2021 Apr 29.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Korea University Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

Purpose: Women with large and/or ptotic breasts are generally not considered candidates for nipple-sparing mastectomy because of concerns regarding the high incidence of postoperative complications including ischemic complications. Therefore, we adopted a vertical skin resection technique for nipple-sparing mastectomy, and obtained satisfactory results following immediate autologous breast reconstruction. In this study, we aimed to describe our operative technique and review its outcomes. Read More

Endoscopic oncoplastic breast surgery represents a minimal invasive approach with the aim of both safe excision of cancer and preserving the breast shape. It has less noticeable scar, excellent cosmetic outcomes, high patient satisfaction rate. Recently, relative long-term follow-up results have been reported to be very safe (Soybir and Fukuma, J Breast Health 11:52-58, 2015; Fan et al. Read More

Revision Breast Reconstruction with Prepectoral Pocket Conversion of Submuscular Breast Implants.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 May;147(5):743e-748e

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine; Twin Cities Plastic Surgery; Section of Plastic Surgery, Virginia Commonwealth University College of Medicine-Inova Branch; and the National Center for Plastic Surgery.

Background: Prepectoral reconstruction using prosthetic devices has demonstrated a notable increase in popularity and confers a number of advantages over subpectoral placement, including minimal animation, no pain secondary to muscle spasm, and less device displacement or malposition. As such, more women with implants in the dual-plane position are seeking a remedy for animation deformities, chronic pain caused by muscle spasm, and implant malposition. The purpose of this study was to review outcomes following the conversion from subpectoral to prepectoral implant placement. Read More

Nipple-Areola Complex Reconstruction Using a Skin Graft and Nipple Sharing after Wise-pattern Central Lumpectomy.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2021 Apr 15;9(4):e3539. Epub 2021 Apr 15.

Northside Hospital Gwinnett, Northside Gwinnett Surgical Associates, Lawrenceville, Ga.

Patients with central breast cancers historically underwent mastectomy, as the aesthetic implications of removing the nipple-areola complex and central breast tissue left disfiguring defects after breast conservation. The introduction of oncoplastic techniques allowed for central lumpectomies in ptotic patients, as the excess skin and gland could be mobilized centrally to fill the defect and even immediately reconstruct a nipple and areola. These reconstructions used excess skin on the Wise pattern vertical limbs to create a nipple, or on a "neopedicle" where both the areola and nipple were reconstructed and then mobilized superiorly into position as would be performed for a conventional mastopexy or reduction.

Skin-Reducing Mastectomy with Immediate Prepectoral Reconstruction: Surgical, Aesthetic, and Patient-Reported Outcomes with and without Dermal Matrices.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2021 May;147(5):1046-1057

From McGill University and the Division of Surgical Oncology, Jewish General Hospital.

Background: Prepectoral breast reconstruction is being increasingly popularized, largely because of technical advances. Patients with ptotic breasts and active cancer require mastectomies through a mastopexy excision pattern to achieve proper pocket control in a prepectoral single-stage operation. This article presents a single-surgeon experience with direct-to-implant, prepectoral reconstruction following skin-reducing mastectomies. Read More

A Novel Technique for Single-stage Reconstruction of Nipple-Areola Complex following Central Lumpectomy.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2021 Feb 16;9(2):e3397. Epub 2021 Feb 16.

Division of Breast and Endocrine Surgery, Department of Surgery, Borås Hospital, Gothenburg, Sweden.

Several oncoplastic techniques have been proposed for subareolar breast cancer, some of which may require contralateral operation for symmetry, or more than one operation for delayed reconstruction of the nipple-areola complex (NAC). We herein developed a simple and effective oncoplastic approach following central quadrantectomy, aiming to achieve the following: (1) preservation of breast shape and contour for patients who are not accepting of a notably smaller breast or bilateral operation; (2) single procedure with advantages of single anesthetic and the ability to reconstruct a breast that has not yet been affected by radiation; (3) no autologous grafts with disadvantage of an extra donor site; (4) creation of natural neo-NAC with only incision within the region of the areola complex; and (5) maintaining long-term nipple projection. In this technique, the medial and lateral peri-areolar flap was advanced and rotated to restore partial neo-NAC, and to fill the defect after central tumor and NAC resection. Read More

Retrospective analysis between complication and nipple areola complex preservation in direct-to-implant breast reconstruction.

Gland Surg 2021 Jan;10(1):290-297

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Yeungnam University Hospital, Yeungnam University College of Medicine, Daegu, Korea.

Background: Since the introduction of skin-sparing mastectomy (SSM), more breast surgeons have been preserving the areola and often nipple areolar complex (NAC) entirely. For better outcomes, more studies are necessary to analyze whether preserving the areola or NAC is unfavorable in breast reconstruction. The aim of this study was to assess the potential risk of areola or NAC preservation in direct-to-implant (DTI) breast reconstruction after SSM. Read More

Staged Approach to Autologous Reconstruction in the Ptotic Breast: A Comparative Study.

Ann Plast Surg 2021 05;86(5S Suppl 3):S395-S402

From the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Stanford University Medical Center, Stanford, CA.

Background: Nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) and autologous breast reconstruction are associated with higher patient satisfaction, quality of life, and aesthetic outcome. For patients with naturally ptotic breasts, this ideal reconstructive treatment of NSM and autologous breast reconstruction poses a challenge. We describe our experience in treating patients with ptotic natural breasts using a 2-staged approach: oncoplastic breast reduction in the first stage followed by nipple-sparing mastectomy and immediate autologous reconstruction in a second stage.

Department of Surgery, Paoli Calmettes Institute & CRCM & Aix Marseille Univ, 232 Bd Ste Marguerite, Marseille, France.

Introduction: Oncological safety, quality of life and cosmetic outcomes seems to be similar between breast conserving surgery (BCS) and mastectomy with immediate breast reconstruction (IBR). We report our experience of IBR for consecutive mastectomies realized in a recent period of four years in order to determined immediate surgical results according to type of mastectomy and type of reconstruction, as mains objectives.

Oncologic Safety of Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy in Patients with Breast Cancer and Tumor-to-Nipple Distance ≤ 1 cm: A Matched Cohort Study.

Ann Surg Oncol 2021 Jan 9. Epub 2021 Jan 9.

Division of Breast Surgery, Department of Surgery, Asan Medical Center, University of Ulsan College of Medicine, Seoul, Republic of Korea.

Background: A short tumor-to-nipple distance (TND) is reported as a strong predictor of nipple-areola complex (NAC) involvement. Eligibility for nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) remains controversial, especially regarding TND. In this study, we compared long-term oncologic outcomes after NSM between patients with a TND ≤ 1 cm and those with a TND > 1 cm. Read More

From the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Division of Surgical Oncology and Breast Services, Cleveland Clinic; and Cereaga Plastic Surgery (private practice).

Background: Despite advances in skin envelope reduction techniques and experienced nipple-sparing mastectomy flap procedures, the rate of nipple malposition and secondary revision in these patients remains high and eligible candidates are limited. In this article, the authors present a novel technique combining skin reduction nipple-sparing mastectomy surgery with single-stage skin-only mastopexy and direct-to-implant reconstruction.
