Group A included 30 patients who underwent intra-capsular circum-areolar mastopexy and Group B including another 30 patients who underwent extra-capsular circum-areolar mastopexy. Follow up after complete healing was scheduled at 3, 6, and 12 months post-operative. Frontal and lateral views photography were taken each visit and objective evaluation was carried on by a plastic surgeon not involved in the surgeries. A questionnaire was performed by using the Likert scale to assess patients’ satisfaction.
In group A; the overall rate of complications was 17%, while in group B; the overall rate of complications was 10%. Patients of group A showed overall satisfaction of 4.53±0.69 in comparison to 3.06±0.25 in group B. In group A; objective evaluation, was excellent in 87% while in group B it was excellent in 43%.
