Oncoplastic surgery combining breast conservative treatment (BCT) and plastic surgery techniques may allow more extensive breast resections and improve aesthetic outcomes, but no long-term oncological results have been published. Long-term oncologic results of 148 consecutive BCT with concomitant bilateral plastic surgery have been analysed and were compared to historical data of BCT trials. Median follow-up was 74 months. Complete excision was obtained in 135 patients (91%); focally involved margins in 8 (5%); and close (<2 mm) margins in 5 (3%). Five patients developed ipsilateral recurrence (3%), 19 (13%) developed distant metastasis and 11 patients died (7.53%). Patients with tumours larger than 2 cm were at greater risk of local recurrences and distant metastasis. Long-term oncologic results of BCT with oncoplastic surgery are comparable with the results of BCT randomized trials.
