Breast reconstruction with a dermal sling: a systematic review of surgical modifications.

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2018 Dec 17:1-12. Epub 2018 Dec 17.

a Department of clinical sciences , University of Gothenburg. The Sahlgrenska Academy , Gothenburg , Sweden.

A dermal sling (DS) is used to cover the implant with two layers of tissue when immediate breast reconstruction is performed in women with large and ptotic breasts. It works as an autologous acellular dermal matrix/mesh that can be used to control the implant pocket and inframammary fold, without inferring an extra foreign material and higher costs. There is relatively little published about the DS technique. Read More

Nipple-sparing mastectomy with periareolar incision and two-stage reconstruction: Initial analysis of 31 cases.

Breast J 2018 Nov 14;24(6):940-943. Epub 2018 Sep 14.

Mastologist of Ceará Cancer Institute (ICC), Professor of Medical School of Ceará State University (UECE), Fortaleza, Ceará, Brazil.

Surgical treatment of breast cancer has changed considerably over the past four decades, culminating in the substitution of conservative approaches for Halsted's paradigm from 1894. In parallel, many breast reconstruction techniques have been proposed for patients requiring mastectomy with loss of the nipple-areola complex (NAC). Myocutaneous flaps were once the most common form of reconstruction, but recently the use of implants and nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) in one or two stages has gained popularity. Read More

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

The Goniometer Device: Special Equipment Designed for Symmetric Mammoplasty Planning and Photo-Symmetry Analysis Technique.

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.

A New Human-Derived Acellular Dermal Matrix for Breast Reconstruction Available for the European Market: Preliminary Results.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Apr 4;42(2):434-441. Epub 2018 Jan 4.

Breast Surgical Unit, Morgagni - Pierantoni Hospital, 47100, Forlì, Italy.

Introduction: The introduction of acellular dermal matrices (ADMs) contributed to the growing diffusion of direct-to-implant breast reconstruction (DTI-BR) following mastectomy for breast cancer. According to specific legislations, European specialists could not benefit from the use of human-derived ADMs, even though most evidence in the literature are available for this kind of device, showed optimal outcomes in breast reconstruction. The Skin Bank of the Bufalini Hospital (Cesena, Italy) obtained in 2009 the approval for the production and distribution of a new human cadaver-donor-derived ADM (named with the Italian acronym, MODA, for matrice omologa dermica acellulata) from the Italian National Transplant Center and National Health Institute.

Microbial Evaluation in Capsular Contracture of Breast Implants.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2018 01;141(1):23-30

Naples, Italy From the Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, the Department of Experimental Medicine, Section of Virology and Microbiology, Università della Campania Luigi Vanvitelli; the Unit of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Università Federico II; and the Department of Public Health.

Background: Capsular contracture around breast implants is a severe and unpredictable complication experienced by up to 50 percent of patients after breast augmentation and reconstruction, and represents a major cause leading to reoperation. Several lines of evidence point to the involvement of subclinical infections and of bacterial biofilm formation.

Methods: To reduce the incidence of capsular contracture following mammaplasty, the authors studied the correlation between contamination by exogenous and endogenous bacterial flora and the capacity to develop bacterial biofilm in mammary implants. Read More

Safe Plastic Surgery of the Breast II: Saving Nipple Sensation.

Eplasty 2017 21;17:e33. Epub 2017 Nov 21.

The Ohio State University Department of Plastic Surgery, Columbus, OH.

Since its inception, reduction mammoplasty has matured considerably. Primary evolution in clinical research and practice initially focused on developing techniques to preserve tissue viability; breast parenchyma, skin, and nipple tissue that has expanded to include sensation and erectile function play a large role in the physical intimacy of women. Studies regarding primary innervation to the nipple are few and often contradictory. Read More

Nipple-sparing mastectomy as treatment for patients with ductal carcinoma in situ: A 10-year follow-up study.

Breast J 2018 05 15;24(3):298-303. Epub 2017 Nov 15.

Division of Breast Surgery, General Surgery Department, Valencia Oncology Institute, Valencia, Spain.

The objective was to determine the 10-year oncological safety of nipple-sparing mastectomy (NSM) in patients diagnosed with ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). The use of NSM preserves the nipple-areola complex (NAC). As residual fibroglandular breast tissue can remain behind the spared NAC, its use for patient with breast cancer is controversial.

Mammaplasty in patients with large areola: Reducing the nipple-areola complex using intra-areolar incisions.

J Plast Reconstr Aesthet Surg 2018 02 20;71(2):267-269. Epub 2017 Oct 20.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, University Medical Centre Utrecht, Heidelberglaan 10, 3584 CX Utrecht, The Netherlands; Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Groene Hart Ziekenhuis, Bleulandweg 10, 2803 HH Gouda, The Netherlands.

Minimal incision breast reduction techniques resulting in periareolar scars are widely used. However, this technique is less suitable for patients with large areola diameters and relatively small breasts, requiring a modest reduction or lift only. As a result of the large nipple-areola complex larger amounts of skin must be removed in order to resect the complete peripheral areola, increasing the risk of high-riding nipples, breast flattening and incomplete areola resection resulting in a rest on the vertical scar.

Polyurethane Foam Wound Dressing Technique for Areola Skin Graft Stabilization and Nipple Protection After Nipple-Areola Reconstruction.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 Apr 3;42(2):442-446. Epub 2017 Nov 3.

Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Yokohama City University Hospital, 3-9 Fukuura, Kanazawa-ku, Yokohama, Kanagawa, 236-0004, Japan.

We describe a new wound management technique using a soft dressing material to stabilize the areola skin graft and protect the nipple after nipple-areola reconstruction at the final stage of breast reconstruction. We introduced a center-fenestrated multilayered hydrocellular polyurethane foam dressing material that provides adequate pressure and retains a moist environment for a smooth skin graft "take." Moreover, the reconstructed nipple can be monitored at any time through the fenestrated window for adequate blood circulation. Read More

Superomedial pedicle reduction mammaplasty: increased resection weight does not increase nipple necrosis.

J Surg Res 2017 11 28;219:158-164. Epub 2017 Jun 28.

Division of Plastic Surgery, Department of Surgery, University of Florida College of Medicine, Jacksonville, Florida.

Background: The superomedial pedicle (SMP) reduction mammaplasty offers several advantages over more traditional operative techniques, such as retained sensation to the nipple areola complex (NAC) and improved preservation of long-term breast shape. However, many surgeons believe that using the SMP can cause an increase in NAC necrosis rates up to 13.1%, especially in large volume reductions. Read More

Mastopexy on Reconstructed Breast Following Massive Weight Loss: An Innovative Technique Using Dermo-Capsular Flaps.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2018 04 26;42(2):396-399. Epub 2017 Oct 26.

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Unit, Campus Bio-Medico University of Rome, Via Alvaro del Portillo 200, Rome, Italy.

Background: We have developed a dermo-capsular flap mastopexy technique for patients who have experienced massive weight loss after breast reconstruction. The aim of this technique is to lift the inframammary fold, adequately cover the implant, and remove excess skin, elevating the breast and obtaining symmetry with the contralateral breast.

Methods: Between January 2014 and February 2017, we performed this technique on 20 women who were candidates for second-stage breast reconstruction following nipple-sparing mastectomy. Read More

Hyaluronic acid gel filler for nipple enhancement following breast reconstruction.

Cutis 2017 Aug;100(2):107-109

Galderma Laboratories, LP, Fort Worth, Texas, USA.

The loss of the 3-dimensional contour of the nipple-areola complex (NAC) following surgical breast reconstruction is a technical challenge for the physician and a psychological burden for many breast cancer patients. The use of injectable dermal fillers to enhance nipple projection is a simple noninvasive procedure with immediate and adjustable volume results that positively impact patient satisfaction. The utility and safety of injectable hyaluronic acid (HA) gel make it an ideal filler for restoring the natural feel and contour to the delicate structure of the NAC and in some cases may represent a simple solution following breast reconstruction.

Prophylactic Nipple-Sparing Mastectomy and Direct-to-Implant Reconstruction of the Large and Ptotic Breast: Is Preshaping of the Challenging Breast a Key to Success?

Plast Reconstr Surg 2017 Sep;140(3):449-454

Skien, Norway; and Odense/Vejle, Denmark From the Department of Plastic Surgery, Telemark Hospital; the Department of Plastic Surgery, Odense University Hospital; and the Section for Breast Surgery, Department of Surgery, Vejle Lillebaelt Hospital.

Background: Nipple-sparing mastectomy with simultaneous hammock technique direct-to-implant reconstruction is increasingly offered to patients opting for risk-reducing mastectomy. Despite this promising method, patients with macromastia and ptotic breasts remain a challenging group to treat satisfactorily and more often end up undergoing a difficult corrective procedure and experience an unacceptably high rate of failed reconstruction. The authors examined whether targeted preshaping mastopexy/reduction could prepare these patients for a successful nipple-sparing mastectomy/direct-to-implant reconstruction. Read More
