Objective The aim was to determine the esthetic outcome of short scar periareolar inferior pedicle breast reduction (SPAIR) technique. Background SPAIR mammoplasty is an effective method of breast reduction created to reduce the amount of cutaneous scar by half and improves breast shape that is stable overtime. This method is applicable to a wide variety of breast problems ranging from simple ptosis to extremes of macromastia. Patients and methods Twenty female patients aged 30–50 years were enrolled in this prospective clinical study presented at Menoufia University Hospitals and were scheduled for breast reduction surgery after approval of the local ethics committee and after taking an informed written consent. They were all done by the same technique. Results The results obtained using the SPAIR mammoplasty had been satisfying and more esthetic as regards other techniques of breast reduction. The resultant shapes were more rounded in appearance, with excellent projection. The pleasing shape that was created immediately, improved and maintained overtime as the breast settled and resolution of postoperative edema occurs, which is usually completed by 6 months postoperatively. Conclusion The SPAIR mammoplasty is an easily applied and technically straightforward technique for breast reduction and that affords the advantages of esthetic shape, reduced scar burden, and stability.
