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. Our newly designed instrument, that is, the goniometer (TG), aims to ensure metric measurements appropriate for the axes, and it may also be used in circumstances that require angle measurements...

Background: Use of mammoplasty for resection of large non-malignant tumours is not widely described. We aim to determine the optimal tumour to breast size ratio cut-off in this group of patients undergoing mammoplasty which could achieve satisfactory cosmetic outcomes. Methods: Patients who underwent mammoplasty from May 2014 to June 2017 for biopsy-proven large non-malignant tumours were included in the study. The demographics, tumour to breast size ratios, histological features and cosmetic outcomes of these patients were assessed...

Many attempts have been made to augment breasts using injectable materials; however, various complications are associated with these materials. Aquafilling gel (Aquafilling, Poděbrady, Czech Republic) is a new soft tissue filler that has been used as an implant material for the face and lip and recently for breast augmentation. This article describes 3 cases of augmentation mammoplasty using Aquafilling gel, focusing on their complications and radiologic features.

The purpose of this study is to introduce a breast reduction technique designed to reduce the incidence of postoperative nipple-areola complex ischemia and necrosis following reduction mammoplasty, while at the same time allowing all the other goals of breast reduction to be realized. This is achieved through preoperative detection of perforating vessels supplying the nipple-areola complex using a hand-held Doppler. The horizontally based parenchymal pedicle is designed to include these perforators whether originating from the internal mammary artery, lateral thoracic artery or both...

BACKGROUND: Reduction mammoplasty is among the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. The reduction pedicle is traditionally de-epithelialized. Many practitioners propose that preservation of the subdermal blood supply results in improved circulation for the nipple-areolar complex. However, this is a time-consuming step of the procedure. Presumed benefits have not been definitively demonstrated. OBJECTIVE: To evaluate current evidence regarding pedicle de-epithelialization in inferior pedicle reduction mammoplasty...

Background: 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. Our past anatomical study demonstrated that primary innervation to the nipple to come from the lateral branch of the fourth intercostal nerve...

Partial breast irradiation of early breast cancer patients after lumpectomy and the use of endogenous adipose tissue (AT) for breast reconstruction are promising applications to reduce the side effects of breast cancer therapy. This study tries to investigate the possible risks associated with these therapeutic approaches. It also examines the influence of adipose derived stem cells (ADSCs) as part of the breast cancer microenvironment, and endogenous AT on breast cancer cells following radiation therapy. ADSCs, isolated from human reduction mammoplasties of healthy female donors, exhibited multilineage capacity and specific surface markers...

BACKGROUND: Obesity is correlated with an increased risk for developing postmenopausal breast cancer. Since obesity rates continue to rise worldwide, it is important to understand how the obese microenvironment influences normal mammary tissue to increase breast cancer risk. We hypothesized that obesity increases the proportion of luminal progenitor cells, which are thought to be the cells of origin for the most common types of breast cancer, potentially leading to an increased risk for breast cancer...

Background: Despite the efficacy of reduction mammoplasty and demonstration that resection weight does not predict symptomatic relief of macromastia, many insurers still rely on the Schnur scale or predetermined resection weight for reimbursement. Insurers review pathology reports to determine reimbursement. Tissue desiccation and handling decrease specimen weight prior to pathology evaluation. Surgeons often make judgments based on intraoperative weight. Our goal was to determine whether (1) discrepancies exist between intraoperative and pathology weights, and (2) how differences may impact reimbursement and medical practice...

The authors document their experience in the use of synthetic 100% bioresorbable surgical mesh (TIGR Matrix, Novus Scientific, Uppsala, Sweden) in breast reconstruction as well as in breast aesthetic surgery. They performed a retrospective review on patients who underwent implant-based breast reconstruction as well as patients who underwent breast reduction mammoplasty procedures with the use of TIGR Matrix Surgical Mesh. When compared with other synthetic but nonresorbable meshes, it appears to show a potentially lower seroma and infection rates, but most importantly, a lower rate of revisional and mesh explantation surgeries...

INTRODUCTION: Reduction mammoplasty alleviates symptoms of macromastia in various ways. Current study results mainly identify perioperative risk factors for middle aged patients. We investigated a large series of consecutive breast reductions procedures to study whether patients' age at the time of operation is related to the postoperative outcome. METHODS: We retrospectively reviewed all non-oncologic breast reduction procedures at a single institution over a ten year time period, analyzing patients (age, BMI, comorbidities, medication) and operation specific characteristics' (pedicle, nipple-to-sternal notch, resection weight, complications) to identify risk factors related to patients' age at the time of operation...

Primary human mammary epithelial cells have a limited life span which makes it difficult to study them in vitro for most purposes. To overcome this problem, we have developed a cell line that was immortalized using defined genetic elements, and we have characterized this immortalized non-tumorigenic human mammary epithelial cell line to establish it as a potential model system. human mammary epithelial cells were obtained from a healthy individual undergoing reduction mammoplasty at SIU School of Medicine. The cells were transduced with CDK4R24C followed by transduction with human telomerase reverse transcriptase...

Introduction: Bilateral breast reduction surgery is the surgical treatment of bilateral breast hypertrophy. This is one of the most common breast surgery requested by women, and performed by plastic surgeons. The reasons that patients want this surgery are to re-size sagging breasts aesthetically, and to get rid of somatic symptoms such as shoulder, chest, back, and neck pain. We believe that the objective positive effects of breast reduction surgery exist beside aesthetic. In our study, our aim is to elicit positive effects of surgery on lungs, if there are, by making pulmonary function test and carbon monoxide diffusion test before surgery and after 6 months of surgery...

The multi-cancer susceptibility locus at 5p15.33 includes TERT, encoding the telomerase catalytic subunit. Genome-wide association studies (GWAS) have identified six single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) in the TERT promoter associated with decreased breast cancer risk, although the precise causal variants and their mechanisms of action have remained elusive. Luciferase reporter assays indicated that the protective haplotype reduced TERT promoter activity in human mammary epithelial and cancer cells in an estrogen-independent manner...
