Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


We have been using the vertical mammaplasty technique with personal adjustments for reduction mammaplasty and glandular resection since 1989. There were 63 cases of aesthetic reduction mammaplasty and mastopexy and 38 cases of reduction mammaplasty and mastopexy contralateral to breast reconstruction with implants and/or autologous tissues performed daring the period from 1989 to 1993. The aim of this work is to discuss the complications, long-term results, and limitations to this technique.
