ANATOMIC VARIATIONS AND asymmetry in Anterior chest wall in women


Kind of mammary glands in women as in an aesthetic sense and in terms of symmetry depends not only on the condition of breast tissue, but also from the anterior contour of the chest. If reconstructive or Augmentation interventions on the type of mammary glands are strongly influenced by the size, shape and location of implants. Understanding the diversity of forms and degree of asymmetry may help in the planning of surgical treatment to achieve an aesthetically acceptable result.
According to X-ray computed tomography was obtained to assess the prevalence of anatomic changes and the asymmetry of the anterior chest wall in women. These results underscore the importance of evaluating the contour anterior chest wall at the planning stage of rapid increase in breast cancer in
order to achieve predictable aesthetic results.
