Abstract

A method that minimizes residual scarring following Poland’s syndrome correction by latissimus dorsi muscle transposition and placement of a submuscular breast implant is described. In order to reduce any resulting unsightly scarring and, in particular, eliminate the anterior thoracic scar, both a dorsal S-shape and an axillary incision were made and the muscle flap was raised. A prothesis was then inserted and the muscle flap sutured to the anterior chest wall through an anterior incision symmetrical to the inferior border of the contralateral areola. The latter is a previously undescribed approach that produces good cosmetic results.
