Combination of Würinger's Horizontal Septum and Inferior Pedicle Techniques to Increase Nipple-Areolar Complex Viability During Breast Reduction Surgery.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2017 Dec 11;41(6):1311-1317. Epub 2017 Jul 11.

Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery, Medical Faculty, Bezmialem Vakif University, Adnan Menderes Bulvarı, Fatih/Istanbul, Turkey.

Background: Breast reduction techniques depend on the vascularity of the pedicle. Preserving vascularity of the nipple-areolar complex (NAC) is mandatory for reduction mammoplasties, as the NAC is the most important aesthetic and functional unit of the breast. The inferior pedicle technique is the most common method for breast reduction; however, pedicle length may increase after using this technique and cause problems related to NAC viability in gigantomastic and hypertrophic breasts.

Accordion-style pedicle suspension in inferocentral pedicled mammoplasty.

J Plast Surg Hand Surg 2016 Oct 4;50(5):307-14. Epub 2016 May 4.

a Faculty of Medicine, Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery , Ondokuz Mayis University , Samsun , Turkey.

Objective: In breast reduction surgery, while the primary objective may appear to be decreasing the breast volume, the ultimate goal is to achieve symmetrical, appealing, and sustainable breast cosmesis. To circumvent late-term ptosis following inferior pedicle mammoplasty, methods such as pedicle suspension to the ribs, support with dermal flaps and grafts, and the use of some alloplastic materials have been proposed. This paper presents a method of folding and fixing the inferocentral pedicle on itself and the underlying pectoral fascia. Read More

Increasing options in autologous microsurgical breast reconstruction: four free flaps for 'stacked' bilateral breast reconstruction.

Gland Surg 2016 Apr;5(2):255-60

1 St Andrew's Centre for Plastic Surgery and Burns, Broomfield Hospital, Mid Essex Hospital Services NHS Trust, Chelmsford, UK ; 2 Department of Surgery, Monash University, Monash Medical Centre, Clayton Victoria 3168, Australia.

For autologous breast reconstruction, there are cases where one free flap cannot provide the volume of tissue required, and the concept of 'stacked' bilateral deep inferior epigastric artery (DIEP) flaps was developed, in which hemi-abdominal flaps are raised on each deep inferior epigastric artery (DIEA), and both flaps transferred to the chest. In cases of bilateral breast reconstruction, stacked flaps may be required to achieve volume replacement, however options are not described. We demonstrate the use of stacked free flaps for bilateral breast reconstruction, using one DIEP flap stacked with one transverse upper gracilis (TUG) flap for each side. Read More

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Department of Surgery, Oregon Health and Science University, 3181 Southwest Sam Jackson Park Road, L352A, Portland, OR 97239, USA. Electronic address:

Wise pattern breast reduction remains the most popular method of performing moderate- to large-sized breast reductions in the United States. Shape distortion after breast reduction can be a result of design flaw, execution of technique, or the result of postoperative complications. This article focuses primarily on optimal design and intraoperative techniques for prevention of shape distortion. Read More

Four flap suspension technique for prevention of bottoming out after breast reduction.

Ann Surg Treat Res 2016 Jan 29;90(1):10-5. Epub 2015 Dec 29.

Ankara Training and Research Hospital Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Clinic, Ankara, Turkey.

Purpose: Bottoming-out deformity is accepted as the most important disadvantage of inferior pedicle breast reduction. For prevention of this deformity, different techniques are used in combination with inferior pedicle. In this study, we aimed to prevent bottoming-out deformity by producing an internal bra effect through combination of inferior pedicle technique with 2 superior and 2 inferior dermal flaps that were raised from each side of the pedicle.

Breast Auto-Augmentation: A Versatile Method of Breast Rehabilitation-A Retrospective Series of 107 Procedures.

Arch Plast Surg 2015 Jul 14;42(4):438-45. Epub 2015 Jul 14.

Department of Aesthetic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery, London Breast Institute, London, UK.

Background: Breast auto-augmentation (BAA) using an inferior pedicle dermoglandular flap aims to redistribute the breast tissue in order to increase the fullness in the upper pole and enhance the central projection of the breast at the time of mastopexy in women who want to avoid implants. The procedure achieves mastopexy and an increase in breast volume.

Methods: Between 2003 and 2014, 107 BAA procedures were performed in 53 patients (51 bilateral, 2 unilateral and 3 reoperations) with primary or secondary ptosis of the breast associated with loss of fullness in the upper pole (n=45) or undergoing explantation combined with capsulectomy (n=8).
