Oncoplastic mastectomy incisions. Oncoplastic surgery is the application of safe oncological surgery whilst aiming to give the patient a satisfactory cosmetic result. This chapter begins by guiding readers about simple mastectomy incisions which give an optimal cosmetic result when delayed breast reconstruction is likely. Relevant incisions are demonstrated with clear supportive diagrams. The rest of the chapter is devoted to skin and nipple sparing mastectomy incisions that are commonly used and their classification. This chapter also outlines the limitations and restrictions of skin and nipple sparing techniques.
