Mammaplasty for patients who have experienced massive weight loss involves some concepts that differ from those that apply to mammaplasty for normal patients. Breast anatomic characteristics make this procedure a very challenging situation. The authors present their experience with a new mammaplasty technique using an extended thoracic wall flap associated with a loop of pectoralis. This procedure is a simple and reproducible method for patients with massive weight loss that results in a pleasing breast shape and long-lasting results.
