Breast Conservation Surgery with Inferior Pedicle Reduction Mammoplasty Followed by Skin-Sparing Mastectomy and Immediate Implant Reconstruction

  • Peter Schrenk


The 28-year-old woman was diagnosed with a 12 mm triple negative G3 breast cancer in the upper outer quadrant of the left breast. Due to positive family history, genetic testing for BRCA1 and 2 genetic mutations was done 2 years ago at another hospital with the result of “unknown variants” but no BRCA 1 or 2 mutations. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy was suggested. Sentinel lymph node biopsy prior to chemotherapy found three negative sentinel nodes. After completion of neoadjuvant chemotherapy, the patient showed a complete clinical and radiological remission.
