Postoperative changes following superior pedicle breast reduction are closely related to the pattern of skin resection. We have observed that the superior pedicle, short horizontal scar breast reduction technique provides a stable breast shape in the long term. We test the validity of our clinical observations through objective analysis of postoperative dimensional changes following superior pedicle, short horizontal scar breast reduction.
