How to Approach Secondary Breast Reduction: International Trends and a Systematic Review of the Literature.

Aesthetic Plast Surg 2021 12 5;45(6):2555-2567. Epub 2021 Apr 5.

Centre of Plastic, Aesthetic, Hand and Reconstructive Surgery, University of Regensburg, Franz-Josef-Strauß-Allee 11, 93053, Regensburg, Germany.

Background: Secondary breast reduction is complex and poses significant challenges to surgeons. Complication rates exceed those of primary reduction, commonly caused by impaired vascular supply of the nipple-areolar complex (NAC). Literature on the topic is scare and provides contradicting recommendations, especially with regard to pedicle choice in cases with unknown primary reduction technique. Read More

Immediate Breast Reconstruction of a Nipple Areolar Lumpectomy Defect With the L-Flap Skin Paddle Breast Reduction Design and Contralateral Reduction Mammoplasty Symmetry Procedure: Optimizing the Oncoplastic Surgery Multispecialty Approach.

Eplasty 2017 31;17:e14. Epub 2017 Mar 31.

Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

We describe a modification of the inferior pedicle reduction mammoplasty for oncoplastic reconstruction of a central tumor defect. Our technique involved a deepithelialized L-shaped medial inferior based flap with removal of lateral breast tissue after central lumpectomy with a contralateral Wise-pattern mastopexy with inferior pedicle for symmetry. This technique is ideal for patients with large, ptotic breasts that desire breast conservation with immediate reconstruction. Read More

Autoaugmentation Mastopexy Modification Prevents Bottoming-Out Deformity and Areola Distortion: A Preliminary Report.

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.

Prospective comparative clinical evaluation of 784 consecutive cases of breast augmentation and vertical mammaplasty, performed individually and in combination.

Eric Swanson

Plast Reconstr Surg 2013 Jul;132(1):30e-45e

Leawood, Kans. From the Swanson Center.

Background: Despite the growing popularity of breast lift surgery, no published study prospectively evaluates mastopexy and augmentation/mastopexy. Several investigators suggest an inordinate risk in combining augmentation and mastopexy, and recommend staging the surgery in some patients. However, no existing study includes the necessary individual and combined treatment cohorts to allow reliable comparisons of safety and efficacy. Read More

Enhancing pedicle safety in mastopexy and breast reduction procedures: the posteroinferomedial pedicle, retaining the medial vertical ligament of Würinger.

Plast Reconstr Surg 2010 Sep;126(3):786-793

Bellville, South Africa From the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Faculty of Health Sciences, University of Stellenbosch.

Background: Nipple necrosis, a potential postoperative complication of breast surgery procedures, should be avoided. Because of the great variation in the blood supply to the nipple, it is advisable to include as many arteries in the pedicle as possible. According to the literature, the perforators of the internal thoracic artery are the most constant and reliable sources of blood to the nipple-areola complex. Read More

Superior pedicle autoaugmentation mastopexy: a review of 34 consecutive patients.

Aesthet Surg J 2010 Mar;30(2):201-10

Northwestern University, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Chicago, Illinois, USA.

Background: The ptotic breast deformity results from two synergistic forces: involution of breast parenchyma leading to a loss of volume, along with a converse laxity of the skin envelope, which becomes inelastic and accommodating. As the breast tissue descends inferiorly on the chest wall 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.

Objectives: The authors propose a technique whereby the superior pedicle vertical mammaplasty technique originally described by Lassus is modified to include transposition of glandular tissue to restore central mound projection while simultaneously narrowing the lower breast base and raising the inframammary crease.

Mastopexy utilizing a dermoglandular hammock flap.

Aesthet Surg J 2005 Jan-Feb;25(1):31-6

Background: Many procedures have been described in the search for the ideal mastopexy technique, ranging from simple cutaneous reduction, with or without glandular remodelling, to the use of dermal flaps fixed to the pectoral fascia, or even the use of silicone mesh or sheets.

Objective: We describe a technique that uses a dermoglandular hammock flap to achieve optimal position and shape of the breast; well located, good quality scars that are as short as possible; and satisfactory early- and long-term results.

Methods: A superior pedicle dermoglandular flap was raised from the lower pole of the breast and transposed to the upper pole. Read More

Periareolar reduction mammaplasty utilizing the inferior dermal pedicle.

T J Lee J S Eom

Aesthetic Plast Surg 1999 Sep-Oct;23(5):331-6

Department of Plastic Surgery, Asan Medical Center, Seoul, Korea.

The critical points which should not be overlooked when performing reduction mammaplasty are to minimize scar on the breast and to ensure a sufficient blood supply for the viability of the nipple-areolar complex. Periareolar reduction mammaplasty has been widely used because it left only one scar around the areola. However, with the typical periareolar reduction mammaplasty technique, it is difficult to remove a large amount of breast tissue and mobilize the remaining breast tissue. Read More

A new technique of reduction mammaplasty: dermis suspension and elimination of medial scars.

M Frey

Br J Plast Surg 1999 Jan;52(1):45-51

Department of Surgery, Medical School, University of Vienna, Austria.

In the last decades new techniques of reduction mammaplasty significantly improved the results obtained and led to a reduced incidence of complications. However, some important problems like the loss of a natural submammary fold and alteration in the shape of the breast with time still remained mostly unsolved and the medial scars in the inverted T techniques are aesthetically unsatisfying. A new strategy for reduction mammaplasty has been developed based on a combination of advantages of other techniques. Read More
