The inverted-T skin-reducing mastectomy with implant reconstruction represents a very effective reconstructive and cosmetic option in patients with macromastia.

Abstract

The inverted-T skin-reducing mastectomy with implant reconstruction represents a very effective reconstructive and cosmetic option in patients with macromastia. However, in this subset of patients, the risk of skin flap necrosis, especially at the T-junction, is significant. In this setting, complete implant coverage with viable tissue beneath the mastectomy skin flaps is essential to reduce morbidity. In this article, the authors retrospectively review their series of 16 skin-reducing mastectomy and immediate one-stage implant reconstructions using the submuscular-subfascial pocket, analyzing the reconstructive issues and cosmetic outcomes.
