While performing the technique, the surgeon can predict the final breast volume and shape, as well as limit sensation loss of the nipple-areola complex (NAC)... Another advantage of this procedure is the improved long-term projection of the breast... Moreover, the technique obtains younger-looking breasts with elevated inframammary folds... However, sensation loss of the NAC has not been reported except one patient... The aim of this letter is to report a unilateral sensation loss of the NAC of a patient who underwent reduction mammaplasty by using superomedial pedicle technique... Complete sensation loss of the right NAC was detected in Semmes-Weinstein monoflaments test... However, loss of sensation of the NAC is a major challange for plastic surgeons... Heine et al. treated 25 gigantomasty patients by using Lejour technique, and reported a reduced NAC sensation in 8 patients (32%)... To the best of our knowledge, unilateral sensation loss of the NAC in superiomedial reduction mammaplasty was not reported before... Actually, we could not understand the reason of this complication and decided to share this case with our colleagues... The authors declare no conflict of interest.

Figure 1: Picture of a 33-year-old female patient who underwent superomedial pedicle reduction mammaplasty. (a) Preoperative frontal view of the right breast, and (b) postoperative 6th month frontal view of the right breast were demonstrated in these figures

Mentions: A 33-year-old female patient without any systemic disease was admitted to our clinic with macromasty (Figure 1a). Her body mass index was 27 kg/m2. The distance between the sternal notch-to-nipple was 30 cm in right breast, and 31 cm in left one before the surgery. The classical superomedial pedicle reduction mammaplasty was performed. A total of 310 g soft tissue was removed in right breast, and 315 g in left one. The NAC transposition was 10 cm in right breast and 11 cm in left breast. No complication was occured during or after the surgery such as hematoma, infection, seroma, wound healing problem or NAC necrosis.
