spair breast reduction
This is from Dr Dennis Hammond's website. He's the creator of this technique to minimize the scar from a breast reduction. I believe it was originally published in the medical literature in 1999, 5 years ago.
What is SPAIR technique?
For years, breast reduction was performed with a long scar which ran along the underside of the breast from the lateral chest wall over to the mid-portion of the sternum. There was an additional scar which ran up the center of the breast and around the nipple and areola. While this operation successfully reduces the size of the breast, it often was associated with unsightly scarring, particularly in the inner and outer portions of the scar under the breast. As well, the shape, which was created at the time of surgery, was often lost as the breast settled creating what is referred to as a "bottomed out" appearance. For this reason, Dr. Hammond has developed a new operation for breast reduction. This procedure takes advantage of the rounded contours of the breast and reduces breast volume while maintaining the beautiful, natural soft curves of the breast. In this technique, tissue is removed from around the nipple and the areola in a semi-circular fashion and the breast is then reshaped in a manner which maintains the natural soft curves running from the outer portion of the breast over to the inner chest wall. Yet at the same time, the breast maintains appropriate and pleasing projection. All this is accomplished with one simple scar that passes around the nipple and areola and then straight down to the inframammary fold. Therefore the wide scar, which previously ran along the underside of the breast, is eliminated. The other significant advantage to this new technique is that the breast maintains its shape over time and creates long-lasting, beautiful results, with less scarring, and a faster recovery with fewer complications.
