The purpose of study was to retrospectively assess the possibility of simultaneous breast reduction and tumor excision in women with benign tumor and mammary hyperplasia. Performance status of the patient, appropriate operation technique and postoperative results were analyzed. Evaluation was made regarding four patients who underwent simultaneous breast reduction and tumor excision with more than 6 months follow up. The types and locations of the tumor, corresponding operation technique, postoperative complication such as flap necrosis, subjective alteration in sensorium around the nipple-areolar complex and esthetic satisfaction were assessed. Preoperative radiologic examinations, histologic findings of the fine needle aspiration, and postoperative biopsy were equivalent. The histologic types revealed were tubular adenoma, leiomyoma and lipoma(2 cases). The tumor was each located in lower lateral quadrant, subpectoral, inframammary fold, and upper lateral quadrant of breast, respectively. Regarding the location of tumor and status of mammary hyperplasia, each breast reduction was done with superior, inferior and medial pedicle(2 cases). There were no postoperative complications and esthetic satisfaction rate was high in all patients. When accurate diagnosis based on preoperative radiologic and histologic evaluation and appropriate selection of operative technique were done, simultaneous breast reduction with excision of benign tumor showed satisfying outcome without postoperative complication even along with esthetic satisfaction.
