Macromastia can cause serious psychological problems in women as well as psychosocial problems due to esthetic appearances. For this reason, proper technique in breast reduction surgery yields a dramatic physical and psychological improvement for the patient. Inverted T-scar breast reduction using the inferior pedicle technique is the most commonly used breast reduction method. The most common complication in this technique regards wound healing at the T-junction area. There are no literature reports citing the use of local flaps for the repair of tissue defects in the T-junction area following reduction mammoplasty. In this study, we present a case of using a salvaged local, Limberg-like fasciocutaneous flap for tissue defect repair at the T-junction area after the inverted T-scar reduction mammoplasty using an inferior pedicle.
