Background: Oncoplastic surgery is becoming more common, however, only several reports have
been published in Japan. We report the results of simple oncoplastic surgery
for Japanese patients with early breast cancer in the upper quadrant area. Methods: In seven patients with a past
history of breast-feeding and ptotic breasts, we performed oncoplastic surgery
involving partial mastectomy and the resection of excess skin and parenchymal
tissue. Results: None of the
patients received a contralateral operation to produce symmetrical breasts. The
width of the resected excess skin tissue ranged from 20 to 50 mm, with the mean
width being 30mm,
and its length ranged from 50 to 90, with the mean length being 77mm. The width of the resected gland
tissue ranged from 40 to 65 mm, with the mean width being 53mm, and its length ranged from 70 to
100 mm, with the mean length being 97mm. The cosmetic results were excellent. Conclusions: Oncoplastic surgery using spindle shaped-resection was
successfully performed in patients with upper quadrant lesions, and the
cosmetic results were excellent.
