Abstract

Most women with asymmetric pectus excavatum suffer from hypoplastic breasts. Hence, aesthetic correction of pectus excavatum has to address thoracic wall deformity, breast hypoplasia, and asymmetry.In retrospective series, 21 patients with a diagnosis of pectus excavatum with hypoplastic breasts were corrected using the pectus bar procedure and subpectoral augmentation mammoplasty. Results were assessed by analyzing prospectively collected data and calculating pectus indices from computed tomographic scans. At 12 months postoperatively, cosmetic evaluations were performed by the patients and by an independent, board-certified plastic surgeon using score from 0 (very poor) to 4 (very good).Cosmetic results evaluated by plastic surgeon were good (3.33 ± 0.03) and patient satisfaction was high (3.52 ± 0.03). Furthermore, indices of pectus excavatum were corrected to near normal.The authors consider that the pectus bar procedure with subpectoral augmentation mammoplasty is useful for the aesthetic correction of pectus excavatum with hypoplastic breasts.
