The superior dermoglandular pedicle technique of breast reduction and its results in 193 reductions are presented. This technique offers aesthetically pleasing results, sensate nipple/areola complex, and safety. The natural shape obtained results from preservation of the superior portion of the breast tissue (where tissue is most needed) while eliminating extensive dissection within the breast. In addition, this technique offers a backup to salvage a vascularly compromised nipple/areola complex.
