Abstract

Abstract Oncoplastic Breast Surgery (OBS) is becoming an integral part of breast cancer management, but training is difficult and not easily available. We propose a bold management policy: the introduction of the reduction mammaplasty into a Breast Cancer Unit (BCU) as treatment for symptomatic macromastia. This management policy could bring about clear advantages both to patients (larged-breasted patients and those with a breast cancer) and surgeons.
