Anterior chest burns in young females frequently result in complicated problems such as scar contracture, damage to the nipple-areolar complex and breast tissue. Furthermore, an absent breast mound, hypoplasia or disfigurement of developed breasts can result in breast asymmetry and psychological problems. So we presented an alternative procedure that combines burn scar reconstruction and augmentation mammaplasty performed during one operative session. We believe patients who have either smaller natural breasts or burned breast with anterior chest scar contracture can earn both functional and aesthetical benefits via this simultaneous operation.
