Poland Syndrome. Unilateral Underdevelopment or Absence of Breast Tissue.
Poland Syndrome. Unilateral Breast Lifting and Augmentation of The Other Breast
Poland syndrome (also Poland’s syndrome, Poland’s syndactyly, Poland sequence, and Poland’s anomaly) is a rare birth defect. It is characterized by unilateral underdevelopment or absence of breast tissue, chest muscle (pectoralis) on one side of the body. Sometimes, but not always, webbing of the fingers (cutaneous syndactyly) of the hand on the same side (ipsilateral hand) can be present. The syndrome is mostly common on the right side of body and found more in males than females.
It is usually considered a unilateral condition.
The adjustment is difficult, but the suture lifts created by Dr. Nikolay Serdev help lift the ptotic breast to the level of pectoral muscles. The other one can be augmented, using an appropriate implant. Dr. Serdev places the implant under the muscle of the underdeveloped breast, so as to balance the volume and level of both breasts, as well as the level of both areolas.
