Inferior Pedicle Reduction Mammoplasty: Position of the Nipple Too High
The 36-year-old patient was diagnosed with a 30 mm tumour in the cranial quadrant of the right breast 12 m above the nipple areola complex (NAC) and close to the skin. Core needle biopsy found a triple-negative invasive ductal carcinoma. According to the tumour size and biology, neoadjuvant chemotherapy was suggested. Sentinel node biopsy prior to neoadjuvant chemotherapy found three negative sentinel nodes. After six cycles of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the patient showed a clinical partial remission with the tumour reduced to 15 mm in diameter. The patient had a medium-sized breast with moderate ptosis (Fig. 30.1a, b).
