Abstract Breast cancer (BC) is accompanied by severe psychological stress in women. The breast volume reduces upon the volume displacement technique remaining unchanged when autologous tissues are used for the volume replacement. LD-flap has become the working standard in the breast plasty. Outcomes of management of 54 patients with III BC stage, referred to the breast surgery departments of tertiary oncological centers in the Russian Federation and Uzbekistan, have been analyzed. 24 patients of them underwent radical tumor resection followed by LD-flap plasty. 30 controls underwent the surgery with no subsequent plasty. In addition to excellent aesthetic outcome the LD-flap plasty resulted in the quality of life improvement without recurrence rate increase and survival rate reduction to be recommended for the post-operative patients’ rehabilitation.
