Abstract

We report the results of oncoplastic surgery in a Japanese patient with early breast cancer. Her breasts were ptotic, and her lesion was considered to be suitable for breast-conserving surgery. Oncoplastic surgery involving partial resection of the gland and a horizontal-type mammoplasty was performed. The technique was easy to perform, and the cosmetic outcome was excellent.
