LO BRUTTO, C.D.  e  ALVAREZ, F.. Dual plane mammoplasty, is it the election technique?. Cir. plást. iberolatinoam. [online]. 2011, vol.37, n.2, pp.123-130. ISSN 1989-2055.

Since 2004 we have been implementing the dual plane technique for augmentation mammoplasty in all our patients as the best one in primary augmentation mammoplasty, treatment of the capsular contracture and in the resolution of breast malformations, among which the tuberous breast was the most frequent one. This plane allows the prosthesis to stand simultaneously under and over the pectoralis major muscle. We considered 650 bilateral mammoplasties operated between january 2006 and december 2008 using smooth round implants in all cases (Mentor®). The surgery was performed with the aid of local anesthesia as well as sedation. The complication rate was minimum and it was mostly produced by hematomas and breast asymmetries. In our experience the dual plane technique admits a few variations taking into account physiological, pathological and type of breast deformity aspects, with a high rate of success and low risk.
