Current brachioplasty techniques include excisional surgery alone or in combination with liposuction. These techniques are associated with poor outcomes, such as residual contour deformities and unfavorable scarring.
Resection and reshaping of the parenchyma are common procedures to produce a natural breast shape in reduction mammaplasty and mastopexy. The challenges of these practices include maintaining sensitivity of the nipple-areola complex (NAC), achieving upper-pole fullness, and preserving an adequate blood supply for patients with massive breast ptosis.
To optimize autologous breast augmentation, a simple and reproducible surgical approach that maximizes the volume of fat transferred to the breast while minimizing the number of sessions and the operating time is needed.
