Abstract

Background

Many mastopexy techniques have been described in the literature focusing on the new nipple areolar complex position and the breast deflation treatment, but only few of them detailed the glandular volume redistribution to avoid the use of implants. We describe a mastopexy procedure that brings the maximum of the volume to the central part of the breast. We compare the procedure to a “chignon” hair style way to vulgarize the technique and simplify its comprehension.

Methods

Breast volume is reshaped by the use of a vertical mastopexy and two deepithelized glandular flaps sutured for the first one to the pectoralis major fascia and for the second one to the contralateral flap. A lateral release of two fasciocutaneous flaps allows the final vertical suture.

Results

From January 2011 to January 2016, 30 patients, between 85 operated on for ptotic breasts, were treated with this technique. The follow-up period is from 6 months to 5 years. Esthetic improvement in the breast shape and its projection were achieved in 90%. The illusion of augmentation of the final volume was noticed in 70% of the cases. No complications were noticed during this study.

Conclusion

We describe an easy and reliable technique for breast lift, based on a mastopexy method that changes the architecture of the breast to bring the maximum of its volume to the central part. The technique is rewarding for moderate volumes when the ptosis is more related to a glandular sagging than to a cutaneous looseness and breast deflation.
