Abstract

A large majority of patients who undergo reduction mammaplasty are satisfied with their aesthetic outcome and resolution of preoperative symptoms. Occasionally, patients present with postoperative concerns; these are usually aesthetic in nature and caused by breast scarring, breast asymmetry, and/or breast shape. Inadequate excision and recurrent hypermastia are more complex concerns, which require careful evaluation and treatment. Analysis of both the presenting deformity and the original surgical approach is critical in determining an operative plan. This article discusses the safe approach to revision reduction mammaplasty. Current concepts are discussed and presented. An algorithm for decision-making is presented and discussed.
