Avoiding scars in the inframammary fold and interrupting neurovascular supply to a minimal degree have always been the goals of surgeons who address the problem of voluminous or ptotic breasts. Obviously if the breast can be restored to an acceptable position without skin removal, the results are aesthetically more pleasing and the complications are diminished. This is particularly important to those women who need a breast lift. They are more attuned to aesthetics than our reduction patients, and more critical of scarring. In the technique of breast infolding, the gland is reset at a higher position and the skin incision is limited to only that required to free the gland and infold it on itself.
