Superior Quadrantectomy according to Santanelli

This technique consist of a modification of the "Wise pattern" procedure described for breast reduction of the inferior pole, to allow for a superior quadrant resection esitating in a small volume reduction but with a good final aesthetic result. Final scar line will be positioned along the (medial or lateral) quadrant affected by the tumor, around the nipple and areola complex, vertically down to the inframammary sulcus and along half of it, opposite to the affected side. Both procedures achieves a final result with a natural breast shape, smaller, higher and with scar not visible on the decolleté, which allow to continue wearing dresses and swimming suites with confort.
