The “B” technique for mastopexy and reduction with and without prosthesis has been used by the author over the last 12 years for all forms of breast ptosis and hypertrophy. It has been used consistently and uniquely in over 1000 cases. Its cosmetic advantages are the short length of the scar, avoidance of a median projection of the scar, and a beautiful roundness in the best cases. The technique proved to be very adaptable to various deformities and is easy to use. The percent of complications is thought to be no greater than that of other techniques.
