Short scar vertical breast reduction surgery in Trinidad refers to operations trying to avoid the long inframammary scar in the design of the skin reduction pattern used to reduce the excess skin during breast reduction surgery in Trinidad.
The procedures provides a vertical scar and a vertical concept – the entire movement of the breast is in an upward direction when short scar vertical breast reduction surgery in Trinidad is performed. This characteristic makes vertical short scar breast reduction surgery also eminently suitable for breast lifting and ptosis (sagging of breasts) correction. In the course of the short scar vertical breast reduction surgery the projection of the breast is also increased and the shape becomes more conical, closer to a youthful ideal.
In general it is thought that short scar vertical breast reduction surgery is not applicable to very enlarged breasts. While there is certainly a limit, we have used short scar vertical breast reduction surgery to perform reductions of 1000gm and more per side. As short scar vertical breast reduction surgery removes by far more breast tissue than skin it relies on a certain degree of skin elasticity so that excess skin not removed during the procedure will eventually shrink down and like a glove again fit the overall reduced breasts. Sometimes it becomes obvious during the short scar vertical breast reduction surgery that this likely will not happen and then a short horizontal skin excision is added, by far shorter than the scar of a standard T or anchor skin closure pattern.
Interestingly, the current literature and our personal experience tell us that nipple sensation, breast feeding capability and scar problems after short scar vertical breast reduction surgery in Trinidad are equivalent to T or anchor closures with an inferior pedicle. I believe that this is true in our own patients if a medial or superomedial instead of a superior pedicle is used in larger reductions performed with short scar vertical breast reduction surgery. This also allows considerable removal of the breast tissue at the lower and lateral aspects of the breasts during short scar vertical breast reduction surgery in Trinidad, which in turn contributes significantly to the avoidance of bottoming out over time and ensures longterm stability of the result.
The main issue patients need to accept is that the result after short scar vertical breast surgery in Trinidad is not immediate. It takes the redundant skin often six to eight weeks to retract and work out the pleats and puckers that remain after leaving more skin than breast tissue behind. We think that this is a small price to pay for a substantially smaller scar and an overall improved breast shape and appearance after short scar vertical breast reduction surgery.
