Abstract:
Breast reduction surgery is a popular procedure that can drastically change a woman's life. Over 100,000 breast reduction procedures are performed in the USA each year. however the use of the supero-medial pedicle technique is still not that common, with the inferior pedicle gaining much more popularity. There are distinct advantages when using the supero-medial pedicle technique including the creation of more upper pole fullness and the reduction in pseudo-ptosis. The technique is relatively easy to learn and can produce excellent results. In this presentation I will outline my technique and describe some tips when performing this surgery.
