In a just published study in Aesthetic Plastic Surgery by Paul Chasan, MD, FACS, founder of Ranch and Coast Plastic Surgery in Del Mar, CA, reductive augmentation is demonstrated to be the best choice for women who want a higher and more round breast after breast reduction surgery.

Although the procedure had been done by Dr. Chasan for many years, it underwent a variety of modifications. The study represents the technique in its most recent form.

“Historically, most breast reduction procedures are prone to bottoming out and lack upper pole fullness,” said Dr. Chasan. “In this article, I review breast shape classifications and describe a one-stage technique for breast reduction combined with breast augmentation called reductive augmentation to solve the problem.”
