The inframammary fascial system has been dissected by us in the last 7 years in over 150 reduction mammaplasties or corrections of ptosis, as well as in cadaver dissections. We have found its anatomy to be consistent, notwithstanding differences in its descriptions in the literature. In this presentation, we describe the anatomy of the fascial structures in the inframammary region as described in the literature and as we have found it. We have used our findings to improve our technique of reduction mammaplasty. In our opinion, preservation of the inframammary ligament is essential to avoid postoperative ‘luxation’ of the breast and the high-riding nipple deformity.
