Newly Identified Gross Human Anatomy: Eight Paired Vestigial Breast Mounds Run along the Embryological Mammary Ridges in Lean Adults.

Plast Reconstr Surg Glob Open 2021 Oct 14;9(10):e3863. Epub 2021 Oct 14.

Department of Human Development and Family Studies, College of Health and Human Development, Pennsylvania State University, University Park, Pa.

Although isolated accessory breasts have been reported in many locations on the torso, we noted that lean men presenting for liposuction had mounds of fullness in a curvilinear array (axilla to groin) consistent with the configuration of the embryological mammary ridge. We hypothesized that grid mapping and pinch testing would elucidate the pattern of fullness and its relation to the "milk line."

Methods: Twenty lean participants (10 men, 10 women) each underwent standardized photography and grid mapping of anterior torsos. Read More

Johns Hopkins Department of Plastic Surgery, Private Practice, 1304 Bellona Avenue, Lutherville, MD 21093, USA. Electronic address:

Abdominoplasty is the fifth most common cosmetic plastic surgery procedure performed in the United States and combining it with other procedures has become more the norm than the outlier. Liposuction is the most common adjunctive procedure, followed by breast surgery, lower back lift, and thigh lift, in addition to hernia repair and gynecologic procedures. The goal of these combination procedures includes creating more global aesthetic improvement while protecting patients from complications, based on consideration of confounding medical variables and increased risks presented by surgery of prolonged duration and exposure.
