Abstract

Treatment of multiple benign breast nodules is sometimes challenging with respect to establishing a surgical plan that achieves both therapeutic and cosmetic goals. Successful application of oncoplastic techniques has been reported in selected cases of benign breast lesions. In this case report, we present the surgical treatment and outcome of a patient with multiple fibroadenomas in ptotic and voluminous breasts. A combined procedure of extensive glandular resection and reduction mammoplasty using a modified vertical pedicle technique was performed on this patient, who desired complete lesion removal, volume reduction, and mastopexy. The cosmetic result was satisfactory at both the short- and mid-term follow-up. In addition, different techniques applied in the treatment of breast fibroadenoma are herein reviewed and discussed.
