The “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal” Publishes Dr. John B. Tebbetts’ Study on Mastopexy and Breast Reduction
Acclaimed plastic surgeon John B. Tebbetts, M.D., was recently published in the “Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal” for a study quantifying optimal nipple position and vertical and horizontal skin excess for mastopexy and breast reduction.

Dr. John B. Tebbetts, world renowned innovator in the field of breast augmentation, was recently published in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal". The medical journal published a recent study by Dr. Tebbetts which was aimed at quantifying optimal nipple position and vertical and horizontal skin excess for mastopexy and breast reduction.
Dr. Tebbetts has been published in the "Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Journal" previously for work relating to breast augmentation. His previous publishings recorded the successes of his 24 Hour Recovery® and High Five Measurement® System, as well as dual plane implant placement among other topics.
Dr. Tebbetts revolutionized the method in which breast augmentation is performed. He is the only surgeon to have recorded a zero percent reoperation rate in consecutive series of breast augmentation patients followed for at least three years in an FDA PMA study.
Dr. Tebbetts’ most recently published study followed 124 mastopexy and 122 breast reduction cases with an average follow-up of 4.6 years. Of the 246 patients, only 16 required reoperation, showing a reoperation rate of 6.5 percent. When compared to a study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons which reported an average reoperation rate of 10-13 percent for breast lift patients, Dr. Tebbetts shows positive outcomes.
A common problem among women is the confusion over whether breast augmentation or breast lift is the correct course of action. Dr. Tebbetts’ High Five Measurement® System has resolved this problem. Dr. Tebbetts has researched and developed this method to be based on numbers, which eliminates all the guess work and uses the patient’s body to determine the solution.
Dr. Tebbetts’ work in the field of breast surgery, most recently mastopexy and breast lift, can help define the first steps of a comprehensive process for using objectively defined parameters that surgeons can apply to skin envelope design.
