Background: Excessively high reoperation rates in breast augmentation premarket approval studies are a major concern of patients and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. Over the past two decades, reoperation rates have remained between 13 and 20 percent at 3 years in three different premarket approval studies for three different types of implant devices, indicating that high reoperation rates are not device dependent. The hypothesis of this study was that implementing specific peer-reviewed… 
Multisite analysis of 177 consecutive primary breast augmentations: predictors for reoperation.
TLDR
The three year Kaplan-Meier reoperation rate was both lower than the manufacturers' KM 3-year rates for reoperation and capsular contracture and Logistic regression identified only simultaneous mastopexy and preexisting ptosis as predictors of reoperation.

TLDR
This retrospective study showed a low 3-year reoperation rate and a clear understanding of the process of breast augmentation, good informed consent and careful selection of implant size in primary and revision augmentation mammoplasty can potentially reduce reoperations.
Outcomes in Primary Breast Augmentation: A Single Surgeon’s Review of 1539 Consecutive Cases
TLDR
This large series of breast implant patients demonstrates that both implant- and technique-related factors may influence complications and reoperations in breast implant surgery.

TLDR
Breast augmentation improves self-esteem and quality of life and persistent numbness is unusual, and almost all patients (98.7 percent) would repeat the surgery.
A comparison of outcomes involving highly cohesive, form-stable breast implants from two manufacturers in patients undergoing primary breast augmentation.
BACKGROUND Although there have been reports of single-surgeon outcomes with highly cohesive, form-stable silicone gel implants in women undergoing primary breast augmentation, there has been only one
Low Risk Primary Augmentation Mammoplasty and Capsular Contracture using Textured Round Cohesive Silicone Gel implants Revisited . A Long Term Follow Up in a Single Surgeon ' s Practice
Background: Capsular contracture following augmentation mammoplasty is the most common complication requiring revision surgery. However there is a lack of single surgeon's long term follow up
Does the Use of Intraoperative Breast Sizers Increase Complication Rates in Primary Breast Augmentation? A Retrospective Analysis of 416 Consecutive Cases in a Single Institution
TLDR
Good results could be obtained without the use of breast sizers in primary breast augmentation with use of a biodimensional tissue based planning system while eliminating risks of infection and reducing intraoperative time.
The Process of Breast Augmentation: Four Sequential Steps for Optimizing Outcomes for Patients
  • W. Adams
  • Medicine

  • 2008
TLDR
This is the first report that defines and integrates the entire process of breast augmentation comprehensively that is validated by outcomes data and, using this algorithm, patient outcomes in this study were superior to premarket approval clinical trial data.
Secondary augmentation mammaplasties and periprosthetic infection: a three-year retrospective review.
  • U. Khan
  • Medicine

  • 2012
TLDR
In this series of revision and secondary mammaplasty patients from the author's practice, there was no higher incidence of infection seen in secondary augmentation mamMAplasty than was seen in previous studies on primary mammasplasty.
Natrelle style 410 form-stable silicone breast implants: core study results at 6 years.
TLDR
These fifth-generation, form-stable implants represent another option to achieve desired aesthetic outcomes with minimal complications after breast implantation, and are updated through 6 years of study.

TLDR
Applying motion and time study principles to analysis and refinement of instrumentation and surgical techniques resulted in a substantial reduction in perioperative morbidity and a simpler, shorter 24-hour return to full normal activity for 96 percent of the patients undergoing breast augmentation in group 3 compared with groups 1 and 2.
Five Critical Decisions in Breast Augmentation Using Five Measurements in 5 Minutes: The High Five Decision Support Process
TLDR
A third-generation decision support process is defined that prioritizes five critical decisions, identifies five key measurements, and completes all preoperative assessment and operative planning decisions in breast augmentation in 5 minutes or less.
Patient acceptance of adequately filled breast implants using the tilt test.

TLDR
If patients will accept more firmness with an adequatelyfilled implant, regardless of the filler material, surgeons might worry less about recommending an adequately filled implant to patients, and manufacturers might feel more comfortable producing adequately filled implants and redefining fill volumes for underfilled implants.
An approach that integrates patient education and informed consent in breast augmentation.
TLDR
A staged, integrated system of patient education and informed consent that provides information and requires simultaneous, informed consent in stages and organizes the education andinformed consent process so that it is clinically practical and also increases thoroughness and documentation while conserving surgeon time.

TLDR
Specific indications and techniques for a dual plane approach to breast augmentation in several different breast types are described, introducing techniques that combine retromammary and partial retropectoral pocket locations in a single patient to optimize the benefits of each pocket location while limiting the tradeoffs and risks of a single pocket location.

TLDR
The TEPID system is a simple, efficient, and clinically practical method that allows surgeons to base implant selection on clinically quantifiable, individual patient tissue characteristics.
