Abstract

Oncoplastic breast surgery (OBS), which combines the concepts of oncologic and plastic surgery, is becoming more common worldwide. We report the results of OBS in a Japanese patient with early breast cancer located on the outer lower quadrant area. We performed OBS combining partial mastectomy with immediate breast reshaping using multiple adipofascial cutaneous flaps and free dermal fat graft because she refused any other OBS. We selected three local flaps to repair the defect. Perioperative and postoperative complications were not seen. The cosmetic findings 3 years after surgery were not excellent, but the patient was satisfied with the results. OBS combining partial mastectomy with immediate breast reshaping using a combination of several flaps was successfully performed in a patient with early breast cancer.
