Abstract

The inferior pedicle technique of breast reduction is a widely-used safe technique. It has been criticised as prone to producing inferior quadrant fullness, called variously "pseudoptosis" or "bottoming out." Described are the results of a technique of inferior pedicle suspension and plication which overcome these problems.
