Breast reconstruction represents an essential component of Breast Cancer (BC) treatment when mastectomy is indicated. However, comorbidities (i.e. diabetes, immunosuppression, cardiovascular disease etc.), elderly, smoking and radiotherapy could impact on complication rates and surgical choice making standard reconstruction challenging. The Goldilocks Mastectomy (GM) is a good alternative in patients with macromastia and ptotic breast whose clinical status contraindicates more complex surgery. We report the first case of a bilateral one stage nipple-sparing GM in a 76- year old patient with bilateral BC.
