Dr Layt’s Contribution to the Prestigious Medical Journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery® Has Been Published!
The entire team here at The Layt Clinic is proud to announce that the head of our practice, Dr Craig Layt, has recently been published in the prestigious Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery® medical journal! Dr Layt is the co-author of an article entitled: “A Novel Classification of the Inframammary Fold for Use in Primary Breast Augmentation,” which appears in the December, 2021 issue of the publication. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery® is one of the most respected medical journals in the world, and it is the official journal of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS).
The article for which Dr Layt contributed examines the importance of sufficiently evaluating the inframammary fold (the underside, or “crease,” of the breast where the breast tissue meets the chest) when planning breast augmentation surgery. Dr Layt was part of a group of doctors conducting a study that resulted in the development of a new classification system of the inframammary fold. The system is designed to assist plastic surgeons when choosing the best possible surgical technique for individual patients—one that may reduce the risk of post-operative complications affecting the lower pole of the breasts, such as a “double-bubble deformity” or other conditions.
Breast augmentation is one of our most popular procedures and remains a special focus of our practice here at The Layt Clinic. Dr Layt’s considerable experience and expertise with breast enhancement surgery has been shared in a number of publications over the last few years. The latest article is not only a benefit for so many of our patients, but is now also being shared with other doctors across the globe via his research contribution to this fascinating article in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery®!
