Abstract :

Introduction: There is possibly no other surgical technique in plastic surgery that has been modified more often than the mammaplasty. Numerous publications have focused on this issue. Regarding the visible scars there are mainly three approaches 1) Periareolar scar, 2) I-scar, and 3) T-scar. Another variable is the pedicle. Since 1996 we use a central pedicle combined with a T-scar with short sub mammary part for most of the cases. Methods: The â�?�?inferior pedicle techniqueâ�? was modified by Dr. Serdar Erenin in 1990. This modified approach is described by a detaching of the inferior part of the pedicle leaving only the central pectoral fascia attached. The blood supply is guaranteed by the intercostal perforators. The main sensory branch to the areola is routinely preserved thus maintaining a sensitive nipple in most cases. Because no dissection from the Nipple-Areola-Complex (NAC) from the gland is necessary, breast feeding after surgery is usually preserved. This pedicle gives a maximum degree of freedom regarding resection and positioning of the gland. Especially the hypertrophic lateral gland parts can be resected extensively down to the pectoral fascia. Results/ Discussion: We overlook more than 1000 mammoplasties performed with this pedicle-technique in the recent 20 years. This technique is not recommended for an inexperienced surgeon due to potential pitfalls in the preparation of the gland. Provided sufficient familiarization with the procedure, however, this technique can be regarded as a safe method for almost all type of breast with excellent results in terms of shape and projection. Generally, breast feeding property and sensation of the NAC are preserved.
