During the last few decades, surgeons have had a tendency to reduce the final scars of a mammaplasty; however, the relationship between breast tissue and skin should be a great guide. When a woman demands breast surgery, she desires to improve her appearance regardless of scars. We have had no complaints concerning the extent of the scar, but many concerning the quality and appearance of the scar. Sometimes patients complain about the size or shape of their breasts. If it is necessary to increase the extent of the scar to improve the appearance of the breast, all patients agree with this course of action. Every breast has the scar it deserves.
