Abstract

The use of a total dermoglandular pedicle in 700 cases of reduction mammoplasty are described by this team of authors. They emphasize that their modification of the dermoglandular pedicle provides an extremely reliable blood supply to the areola and is quick and easy to perform. There is no anesthesia of the nipple postoperatively, and the shape of the breast is favorable both in the immediate postoperative period and over the longterm follow-up observation between the years 1979 and 1984.
