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).

Safvet Ors

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2016 Aug 27;40(4):497-506. Epub 2016 May 27.

SO-EP Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery Clinic, Seyitgazi Mah. Seyyid Burhaneddin Bulv. No: 51/A, 38050, Kayseri, Turkey.

Background: Ptotic breast deformity results from involution of breast parenchyma and leads to a loss of volume, along with a converse laxity of the skin envelope. As the breast tissue descends inferiorly with gravity, there is an apparent volume loss in the upper pole and the central breast, and the lower pole becomes fuller and often wider. This study presents modifications for a well-known mastopexy technique which provides not only autoaugmentation for the breast but also suspension for the breast parenchyma and reduces bottoming-out deformity, and also obtains a regular areola shape in all types of breasts.
