Subcutaneous mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction has recently gained a rising popularity and preservation of the nipple-areola complex further reduces the psychological disability of breast surgery with superior aesthetic results. Unfortunately it is not always technically feasible to preserve the nipple-areola complex in a moderately to severely ptotic breast and therefore this option is precluded to a significant proportion of women. In this case report we are describing a modification of the conventional nipple sparing mastectomy and skin reducing mastectomy which could overcome this issue.
