Background: Surgeons' decisions impact patient outcomes and implant effects on tissues over time. Tissue assessment systems that provide quantitative, objective data enable objective rather than subjective decisions. First-generation dimensional systems for breast augmentation defined a desired result dimensionally and recommended an implant to force tissues to the desired result. A second-generation system, the TEPID system, defines measurements to match the implant to the patient's tissue… Expand
The Process of Breast Augmentation: Four Sequential Steps for Optimizing Outcomes for Patients
  • W. Adams
  • Medicine
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 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. Expand
Delphi Study Consensus Recommendations: Patient Selection and Preoperative Planning Measurements for Natrelle 410
TLDR
Consensus recommendations for patient selection and preoperative planning in primary breast augmentation with the Natrelle 410 breast implant are developed, designed to optimize surgical outcomes. Expand
Matching the Implant to the Breast: A Systematic Review of Implant Size Selection Systems for Breast Augmentation
TLDR
There is some evidence to support tissue-based planning as a superior approach to implant size selection planning; studies that used tissue- based planning reported lower reoperation rates compared with industry standards and accepted literature values. Expand
Preoperative Assessment Preferences and Reported Reoperation Rates for Size Change in Primary Breast Augmentation: A Survey of ASPS Members
Background: The purpose of this study was to determine the current preferences of plastic surgeons regarding preoperative assessment and their effect on clinical outcome in primary breastExpand
Axillary Endoscopic Breast Augmentation: Processes Derived from a 28-Year Experience to Optimize Outcomes
  • J. Tebbetts
  • Medicine
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 2006
TLDR
A 28-year experience with axillary subpectoral and submammary breast augmentation is reported, and proved processes and surgical techniques that have evolved during that experience are defined. Expand
A decision-making method for breast augmentation based on 25 years of practice
TLDR
Herein, the planning method is presented, which is derived from more than 25 years of experience in aesthetic breast surgery and communication, and lower re-intervention rates are associated with the application of tissue-based planning methods and decision-making systems matching implants to patients’ tissues and breast dimensions. Expand
Breast Implant Selection: Consensus Recommendations Using a Modified Delphi Method
TLDR
Consensus recommendations included ensuring consideration of proper surgical technique and patient tissue and anatomical characteristics, weighing relative expected results of various surface textures, sizes, and degrees of cohesivity, and careful contemplation of the migration risk. Expand
Prospective Outcome Study of 225 Cases of Breast Augmentation
  • E. Swanson
  • Medicine
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 2013
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. Expand
Long-Term Outcomes in Breast Augmentation in Trans-Women: A 20-Year Experience
TLDR
Depending on the various degrees of breast tissue growth due to hormonal therapy, whenever applicable, it is recommended to recommend round, low projection implants with a mean size of 360 cc in the prepectoral pocket. Expand
The Use of An Anthropometric - Based PreOperative System to Choose Implants in Primary Breast Augmentation – An Outcome Analysis
TLDR
The anthropometrically-based system guided surgeons and patients effectively in choosing implants that resulted in high outcome satisfaction rates and no reoperations for size change, especially in difficult cases that have a high risk for poor outcome. Expand

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
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.

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. Expand
Enhancing Patient Outcomes in Aesthetic and Reconstructive Breast Surgery Using Triple Antibiotic Breast Irrigation: Six-Year Prospective Clinical Study
TLDR
Triple antibiotic breast irrigation is clinically associated with a low incidence of capsular contracture compared with other published reports, and its clinical efficacy supports previously published in vitro studies. Expand
Dual plane breast augmentation: optimizing implant-soft-tissue relationships in a wide range of breast types.
  • J. Tebbetts
  • Medicine
  • Plastic and reconstructive surgery
  • 2001
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.

Patient acceptance of adequately filled breast implants using the tilt test.

  • 2000
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.
