BCT (breast conserving therapy) has become a standard strategy for breast cancer and ensures local control and acceptable cosmetic results. However, an insufficient resection margin may increase local recurrence if too much attention is paid to cosmesis. Here, we describe a simple technique for reconstruction of the defect on the outer upper part of the breast with early breast cancer using thoracodorsal adipofascial flap.
