Round block Oncoplastic Breast-Conserving Surgery (OBCS) can cause dilatation of the areola and a sharp periareolar scar that leads to significant asymmetry of the breasts. Here, we modified the round block OBCS by using the tendency of areolar expansion and placing the incision line and de-epithelization of the epidermal layer in the Perimamillar (PM) area rather than in the periareolar area. PM OBCS was indicated for the radical resection of solitary or multifocal malignant tumors (<30 mm) located in any quadrant of the breast. The Breast Q questionnaire, BCCT.core, and Likert scale were used to evaluate the subjective and objective aesthetic results. A prospectively led database of 60 patients was used in this retrospective study. Re-excisions were performed due to involved margins in 5 (8.3%) cases. The median follow-up time was 11 months. In total, 8 (13.3%) grade-I complications and 2 (3.3%) grade-II complications were recorded. The PM OBCS technique did not significantly influence the subjective and objective aesthetic results. High patient satisfaction was observed. The PM OBCS technique is effective Level-I oncoplastic for cT1 breast tumors. Thus, “invisible” surgery could be a realistic expectation. Compared to periareolar de-epithelization, this technique allows better preservation of breast projection.
