The rate of good outcomes was significantly higher in cases in which a breast splint was used, compared with those that were not treated with a breast splint (7/9, 78.8% versus 4/15, 26.7%: P = 0.028). Three representative postoperative images of breasts for good and bad results in terms of NAC position are shown in the Supplemental Digital Content 1. (See figure, Supplemental Digital Content 1, which displays three representative postoperative images of breasts showing good and bad results in terms of NAC position. https://links.lww.com/PRSGO/B872.)
The material used for the breast splint, DuoActive CGF, did not damage the skin while serving to maintain skin elongation. There were no major skin problems in cases treated with a breast splint.
