With the increasing performance of modified radical mastectomy in the treatment of female breast cancer, satisfactory restoration of contour can be performed by a relatively simple procedure. In a large number of patients, this constitutes the optimal rehabilitation in the appropriate circumstances. It is hoped that with an increasing awareness of the possibility of this type of restoration, the procedure will be more widely applied.
