There is little technical difficulty in planning incisions and insuring acceptable cosmetic results when lesions and biopsy cavities are subareolar or periareolar. As the distance from the nipple-areolar complex becomes greater, it becomes increasingly more difficult to produce a cosmetic result without compromising the therapeutic aspects of the procedure unless close attention is paid to the technical aspects of flap design. The purpose of this report is to describe a rapid and simple technique that we have developed and employed to assist in the intraoperative planning of mastectomy incisions and closures.
