  Purpose

Several works show breast hypertrophy as pain cause, postural alterations, dermatitis and decrease of the functional capacity and of the self-esteem. The economical evaluations are destined to esteem the costs in alternative ways of attendance to the health, comparing, for instance, clinical strategies with surgical strategies.

OBJECTIVE: To analyze cost-effectiveness in reduction mammaplasty.

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • The total cost for procedure will be calculated with accuracy through the Brazilian software "TASY". To evaluate the effectiveness will be used the SHORT FORM 36, Visual Analogue Scale, Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire 20 and SHORT FORM-6D [ Time Frame: before the surgery (baseline) ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The total cost for procedure will be calculated with accuracy through the Brazilian software "TASY". To evaluate the effectiveness will be used the SHORT FORM 36, Visual Analogue Scale, Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire 20 and SHORT FORM-6D [ Time Frame: 3 months after surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
  • The total cost for procedure will be calculated with accuracy through the Brazilian software "TASY". To evaluate the effectiveness will be used the SHORT FORM 36, Visual Analogue Scale, Stanford Health Assessment Questionnaire 20 and SHORT FORM-6D [ Time Frame: 6 months after the surgery ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]

Detailed Description:
  1. Design: This is a primary, prospective, analytical, controlled study in humans.
  2. Settings: Data will be collected at the Plastic Surgery and Orthopedic and Traumatology Outpatient Clinics of the Samuel Libânio General Hospital (Hospital das Clínicas Samuel Libânio, HCSL), Pouso Alegre, MG, Brazil, in july/2008-december 2009.
  3. Participants: Fifty women with breast hypertrophy (25 study group and 25 control group) according to the Sacchini index,12 aged 18 to 59 years, were consecutively selected to participate in this study.

    Pregnant women, and patients who gave birth or were breastfeeding less than one year before the beginning of the study, as well as patients with uncontrolled systemic diseases, acute diseases, breast asymmetry, who had undergone breast or spine surgery, and who had body-mass index (BMI) lower than 18.5 kg/m2 (low body weight) or greater than 30 kg/m2 (obese women) were excluded from the study.

  4. Instruments: Pain intensity in the cervical, dorsal and lumbar regions of the back has been assessed using a visual analogue scale (VAS). also will be used SF36, HAQ 20 and SF-6D.
