Our center has refined a wise-pattern superior and superomedial pedicle breast reduction technique with predictable quality outcomes giving high patient satisfaction and a very low complication or revision rate.
Fifty patients who underwent bilateral superior or superomedial pedicle wise-pattern breast reduction were included in the study. Demographic and perioperative data were collected, as were details of complications. A 21-item postal questionnaire was used to evaluate satisfaction with outcome parameters.
The superomedial pedicle technique was used in 86% reductions, and the superior pedicle in 14%, and the mean weight removed from the breasts was 778 g (range, 244–1766 g). Mean patient satisfaction with outcome parameters, as well as maintenance of shape was excellent, as were mean improvements in symptoms of macromastia. No patient required a revision procedure.
Superior and superomedial pedicle wise-pattern scar reduction mammaplasty with the technique presented predictably gives excellent results and patient satisfaction, with long-term preservation of shape.
