PURPOSE: A growing trend in breast reconstruction has been placement of tissue expanders in the pre pectoral space. This is a change from the practice of placement under the pectoralis major with or without an acellular dermal matrix (ADM) sling. The move toward pre pectoral placement with an ADM wrap has the intent of decreasing post-operative pain and decreasing animation deformities. The cosmesis of pre pectoral reconstructions in the setting of post mastectomy radiation has also appeared improved in our early experience, when compared to submuscular reconstructions...

Oncologic and reconstructive advancements in the management of patients with breast cancer and at high risk for breast cancer have led to improved outcomes and decreased patient morbidity. Traditional methods for prosthetic breast reconstructions have utilized total or partial muscle coverage of prosthetic devices. Although effective, placement of devices under the pectoralis major muscle can be associated with increased pain due to muscle spasm and animation deformities. Prepectoral prosthetic breast reconstruction has gained popularity in the plastic surgery community, and long-term outcomes have become available...

Partial resections of the breast are more than 50% of breast oncological surgery. The resulting defect can be substantial and cause meaningful deformity that leads to reduced body image satisfaction of the patients, affecting their ability to cope with the cancer. Parallel to the development of breast oncology techniques, an evolution of breast reconstruction techniques occurred. During the last decade, by using techniques from cosmetic breast surgery (such as breast reductions, augmentations and mastopexies), we can reconstruct extensive partial defects of the breasts at the immediate and delayed setting and achieve symmetrical aesthetic results...

BACKGROUND: Over 175,000 Americans underwent bariatric surgery in 2013 alone, resulting in rapid growth of the massive weight loss population. As obesity is a known risk factor for breast cancer, plastic surgeons are increasingly challenged to reconstruct the breasts of massive weight loss patients after oncologic resection. The goal of this study is to assess the outcomes of autologous breast reconstruction in postbariatric surgery patients at a single institution. METHODS: Patients who underwent autologous breast reconstruction between 2008 and 2014 were identified...

BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Oncoplastic reconstruction allows more patients to become candidates for breast-conserving surgery (BCS). Oncologic resection of a breast lesion is combined with plastic surgical techniques to improve aesthetic results. Choosing the best oncoplastic method is essential to optimize outcomes, improve cosmesis, and minimize postoperative complications. The aim of this study is to present a treatment algorithm incorporating oncoplastic techniques based on diagnosis, tumor size, tumor location, and breast size and shape...

INTRODUCTION: Immediate breast reconstruction (IBR) is routinely offered to improve quality of life for women with breast cancer requiring a mastectomy, but there are concerns that more complex surgery may delay the delivery of adjuvant oncological treatments and compromise long-term oncological outcomes. High-quality evidence, however, is lacking. iBRA-2 is a national prospective multicentre cohort study that aims to investigate the effect of IBR on the delivery of adjuvant therapy. METHODS AND ANALYSIS: Breast and plastic surgery centres in the UK performing mastectomy with or without (±) IBR will be invited to participate in the study through the trainee research collaborative network...

The "Mastotrainer" was introduced as a new concept of simulators for use in surgical training. Simulators of this type are critical as the use of cadavers is limited or prohibited in some countries. The Mastotrainer has proved very useful in training various surgical techniques, with the first version of the simulator being focused on breast augmentation and reconstruction following mastectomy. This current project explores use of a new version of the surgical simulator that can facilitate a broader spectrum of procedures in the training of breast surgeons as well as plastic and reconstructive surgeons in order to achieve better outcomes...

Oncoplastic surgery of the breast has generated great excitement over the past years and has become an integrated component of the surgical treatment of breast cancer. Oncoplastic procedures (OPP) associate the best surgical oncologic principles to achieve wide tumor-free margins with the best principles of plastic surgery to optimize cosmetic outcomes. So, a number of conventional mammoplasty techniques have been adapted to allow reconstruction of resection defects with parenchymal flaps using a variety of different approaches...
