Purpose:

At a national level of 15%, the reoperation rate following augmentation mammaplasty is too high. We are conducting a survey to examine the pre-operative methods by which plastic surgeons determine implant volume, size, shape and location; and to determine if the Mentor "BodyLogic"TM System can successfully improve outcomes. We will evaluate how measurements taken using "BodyLogic"TM influence choice of implant and whether there are any re-operations, particularly for size change. We hypothesize that using this system will help surgeons choose appropriate implants that will decrease the rate of reoperations, especially for size change.


Study summary:

We are planning to survey 10 high volume plastic surgeons that perform at least 10 breast augmentations a month and to collect data on at least 300 patients. The enrollment period will be 3 months. As part of this study, we are having the following steps performed: 1. Complete a 'general preference questionnaire', designed to document current preoperative planning and assessment methods for breast augmentation. 2. For each study patient, a pre-operative "BodyLogic"TM worksheet will be completed. Then, using the provided Implant Selection Booklet, the actual implant will be selected. The surgeon will maintain a key of the patients, and will identify them to the investigators only by subject number, and return these forms in provided stamped, self-addressed envelopes. 3. The patient returns at 1-3 months and 8-12 months for completion of the respective "Body-Logic" post-operative worksheets for each visit and the surgeon will send us the data in the provided envelopes periodically. 4. If during the course of the data collection, the surgeon has to re-operate on any patient, he/she will fill the "re-operative form" and send it to us. 5. Finally, the surgeon will complete a post-study evaluation questionnaire to help us understand how the "BodyLogic"TM System worked for him/her and how it could be improved.
