Correction to: Aesth Plast Surg  https://doi.org/10.1007/s00266-018-1095-0

The second to last sentence in the Results section of the Abstract should be corrected to, “At 180-days follow-up, there was a significant improvement in total VAS scores.”

In the Study Population section of Methods, the last sentence should be corrected to, “Exclusion criteria included: pregnancy or lactation; using steroids, or other immune modulators known to affect wound healing; history of radiation of the breast; tattoos in the area of the incision; skin conditions such as cutis laxa, that would result in poor healing or widen scars; patients with a known significant history of hypertrophic scarring or keloids; postsurgical incisions still actively bleeding; exposure of blood vessels, organs, bone or tendon at the base of the reference wound; and incisions > 12 inches (30 cm) maximum linear dimension.”

The first two sentences under Scar Quality and Aesthetic Appearance in Results should be corrected to, “The scar quality and aesthetic appearance as assessed using POSAS (Fig. 3) and VAS (Fig. 4) at 42 and 90 revealed a significantly (p < 0.05) better quality of scarring in the NPWT treatment breasts compared to standard care, using fixation strips. The total VAS score was also significant at 180 days.”
