Staff of the Center for Postgraduate Medical Education Institute of Medicine and Psychology NSU developed a “Method of three-plane structural conservation mammoplasty for the correction of ptosis on an implant,” for which NSU received a patent for the invention in 2024.

The main difference between the new method and most currently used methods for correcting ptosis (drooping) of the mammary gland is the preserving nature of plastic surgery. The method, patented by Novosibirsk scientists, is aimed at achieving the required aesthetic result without destroying organ tissue and preserving all functions of the mammary gland, including the ability to lactation, sensitivity, etc.

As the developers of the technology themselves note, it combines and creatively reworks the competencies previously accumulated by our medicine, primarily in the Russian school of surgery.

— The patented method takes into account many anatomical aspects, structural features of the vascular network of the mammary gland, its lymph flow, and other parameters. As a result, doctors are able to correct the shape of an organ by manipulating blood vessels and tissues, while maintaining their integrity. And the location of the incision ensures the virtual absence of visible traces of surgery. Yes, this is a complex operation, but it is completely within the capabilities of a qualified surgeon and gives good results,” said one of the authors of the patent, professor at the Center for Postgraduate Medical Education at the Institute of Medicine and Psychology of NSU, MD, leading plastic surgeon at the Avicenna Medical Center » Andrey Viktorovich Kozlov.

He also noted that although such operations are carried out only at Avicenna, which acted as a partner of the university in this study, the technology they created for conservation mammoplasty was presented at a number of Russian and international medical congresses and aroused great interest from the medical community.

Another feature of the received patent is that two of the three patent holders are NSU residents, that is, people receiving postgraduate medical education, which is quite rare. Typically, the authors of such works are more experienced doctors.

“This speaks, first of all, about the fundamental approach and quality of educational work at the Institute of Medicine and Psychology of NSU. And of course, obtaining a patent is the result of joint work with Center for Technology Transfer and Commercialization of NSU and our partner in the person of the Avicenna clinic. As a result, there is both an effective medical technology and a good foundation for further scientific work in this direction among the residents themselves,” Andrei Kozlov is sure.
