As the Korean life style is becoming westernized at a rapid pace, the rate of breast cancer is growing at the same time. So, the case of breast reconstruction after mastectomy increases, too. Points of breast reconstruction are symmetry, scar, size, and shape. Especially symmetry and scar are more important than others for Korean. This study is aimed to identify the method of breast reconstruction that accomplished the best results in terms of symmetry and scar. METHODS: A total 15 patients were operated on from March of 2005 to July of 2009. The 5 patients were reconstructed by mammoreduction method after periareolar incision, the 7 patients were reconstructed by pectoralis-major transfer with implant after periareolar incision, and 3 patient were reconstructed by both breast augmentation.
RESULTS
Follow up period was 20.2 months on average and no complications such as breast deformity were observed. In symmetry of breast, the satisfaction score of periareolar approach is 4.4 and the satisfaction score of other approaches are 4.2(p>0.05). But in scar of breast, the satisfaction score of periareolar approach is 4.6 and the satisfaction score of other approaches is 3.4(p<0.05).
