Mammary overdevelopment sometimes occurs during adolescence. Is it right, though, to make incisions—and leave scars—on the bust of an adolescent girl who is just entering adulthood ?

On the principle that deformations lead to malformations, this technique reduces the volume of the breast before the development of major mammary ptosis and its collateral effects, such as spreading of the areolae and thinning of the skin.

Principles of treatment

  • By a single horizontal incision made in the inframammary fold, the posterior part of the gland excess is removed. No excess skin is removed, so as to retain its elasticity.

Indications

  • As a preventive measure against secondary defects, this operation is recommended during adolescence.

Aftercare

  • The operation is most often performed under general anesthetic.

Pain

  • Pain is considered as moderate, and responds well to analgesics.

Results

  • The breast is lighter and positions itself naturally.
