Abstract

We propose the use of a simple device—the flexible curve—to aid trainees with the peri-areolar markings of Lejour's mammoplasty. This cheap and simple, commercially available, wipe clean device can be purchased in any art store and easily adapted for purpose. It assists beginners in the marking of the areola site in vertical mammoplasty and speeds the learning curve needed to make the marks accurately despite great variation in pre-operative breast size and contour. Both authors have found the device incredibly useful in the peri-areolar marking of Lejour's mammoplasty technique. We hope that publication and awareness of the device may assist others to achieve accurate peri-areolar markings with ease.
