Traditional reduction mammoplasties have the simple concern to guarantee the survival of the nipple areola complex after surgery. Little has been done to take care of essential functions in the nipple, especially the erogenous sensation. We have conducted a retrospective study on a cohort of 573 female patients operated using the Total Posterior Pedicle of Moufarrege between 1985 and 1995 to evaluate its effect on the erogenous sensation of the nipple. This study demonstrated the preservation of the erogenous sensation of the nipple in a high proportion of these patients. The physiology of this preservation is explained in regard of the technique details in Moufarrege mammoplasty compared to other techniques. The Moufarrege Total Posterior Pedicle would therefore be a highly reliable reduction technique to ensure the preservation of the erogenous sensation of the nipple.
