Defect Reconstruction After Breast Conservation Surgery and Radiation with Lipofilling


A 55-year-old patient had a history of neoadjuvant chemotherapy for bilateral breast cancer in both the upper quadrants. Neoadjuvant chemotherapy resulted in a clinically partial remission, and the patient underwent bilateral oncoplastic inferior reduction mammoplasty and radiation (Fig. 52.1a). Due to a large bilateral intraductal carcinoma in situ, the surgery resulted in pronounced tissue defects in both the upper quadrants (Fig. 52.1b). Correction of the postquadrantectomy defects was planned by lipofilling.
