Abstract

Summary:

Although much has been written about breast aesthetics, the literature lacks a simple yet systematic and comprehensive approach for preoperative breast assessment. With use of the mnemonic “BFACE,” the breast surgeon will analyze the bony skeleton and the breast footprint, areola, conus, and envelope. The authors present a thorough review of the important parameters that define the ideal breast, and several techniques for perceiving asymmetries more clearly. Strategic surgical planning is enabled by accurate perception.
