Purpose : Not only oncologic safety but also satisfactory cosmetic results can be achieved by oncoplastic breast surgery. Authors applied thorcoepigastirc fasciocutaneous flap as oncoplastic surgery for patient with lower or cental portion of breast cancer, to assess the usefulness of this procedure. Patients and methods : A total of thirty-eight patients with lower or central portion of breast cancer underwent a partial mastectomy with immediate thorcoepigastirc fasciocutaneous flap reconstruction. The clinicopathologic factors were analyzed retrospectively and the cosmetic outcomes were evaluated based on 4-point scoring system. Results : The mean follow-up period was 12.2 months and mean tumor size was 1.8 cm. The mean excised breast volume was 67.9 mm3 and the cosmetic result showed excellent in 21 (55.3%) and good in 13 (34.2%). Conclusion : The partial mastectomy with immediate thoracoepigastric fasciocutaneous flap would be a useful oncoplastic surgery for breast cancers which are located in lower or central portion of the breast.
