Özet

Background: Scarring is the most frequent cause of dissatisfaction both for the surgeons and for the patients in breast reduction surgery. Some of the techniques used today use the classic inverted T scar. An inverted T scar is a combination of three separate scars (periareolar, vertical, and inframammary). To the authors' knowledge, no study has investigated the cosmetic outcome of these three scar components separately. The aim of this study was to determine the surgeons' and patients' perspectives on the cosmetic outcome of these three scar components.
