Oncoplastic breast surgery is increasingly preferred method of intervention today. Surgery allows for the removal of mass with clear borders while keeping the appearance within the acceptable standards. The success of breast conserving surgery is evident only after the radiotherapy received. Oncoplastic techniques that allow filling of the defect by shifting the breast tissue are the best option for the treatment. An invasive ductal carcinoma with dimensions of 23 mm × 21 mm, located in the retroareolar area on the upper outer quadrant of the right breast was detected in a 59-year-old postmenopausal female patient. Taking into the consideration of tumor-breast ratio, localization of tumor, the density of the breast and skin features, racquet mammoplasty technique was used. In today’s world, breast cancer is considered to be a chronic disease by the World Health Organization. In a well-staged condition, the surgical intervention must be applied with an acceptable cosmetic appearance.
