The purpose of this study is to determine the efficacy of hyaluronic acid gel injections compared to saline injections in improving scar quality in patients undergoing breast reduction surgery. Hyaluronic acid has been implicated in scarless fetal healing, and the investigators therefore hypothesize that injections of hyaluronic acid gel into breast reduction incisions will improve their appearance compared to injections of saline.

A group of high molecular weight chondroitin sulfate proteoglycans that form aggregates with HYALURONIC ACID.
Materials such as COLLAGEN or HYALURONIC ACID that are injected or deposited into the DERMIS for the purpose of skin augmentation.
Mucoid states characterized by the elevated deposition and accumulation of mucin (mucopolysaccharides) in dermal tissue. The fibroblasts are responsible for the production of acid mucopolysaccharides (GLYCOSAMINOGLYCANS) in the ground substance of the connective tissue system. When fibroblasts produce abnormally large quantities of mucopolysaccharides as hyaluronic acid, chondroitin sulfate, or heparin, they accumulate in large amounts in the dermis.
A natural high-viscosity mucopolysaccharide with alternating beta (1-3) glucuronide and beta (1-4) glucosaminidic bonds. It is found in the UMBILICAL CORD, in VITREOUS BODY and in SYNOVIAL FLUID. A high urinary level is found in PROGERIA.
A therapeutic treatment typically involving INTRA-ARTICULAR INJECTIONS of HYALURONIC ACID and related compounds. The procedure is commonly used in the treatment of OSTEOARTHRITIS with the therapeutic goal to restore the viscoelasticity of SYNOVIAL FLUID, decrease pain, improve mobility and restore the natural protective functions of hyaluronan in the joint.
