Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


The aim in aesthetic breast surgery is to achieve the ideal breast shape while maintaining the symmetry. There are multiple studies in all aspects of aesthetic breast surgery focusing on the preoperative markings and technical details of the procedures to achieve the ideal breast shape; however, to our knowledge, there are no recommendations in the literature mainly focusing on how to maintain the symmetry perioperatively other than operating while the patient is in semisitting position. Herein, we present a simple, practical, and a reliable technique to maintain the symmetry in any aesthetic breast surgery.
