We present a case report of a 59-year-old patient with a giant lipoma of the left breast, extending to the left arm. She sought medical consultation because it had become heavy and caused pronounced breast asymmetry. The lesion was excised by means of an oncoplastic technique using the superior-medial pedicle wise-pattern breast reduction approach. We concluded that the use of the oncoplastic reduction pattern technique after removal of a giant breast lipoma is highly rewarding, resulting in a smaller-sized breast that is aesthetically more pleasing, has better symmetry with the contralateral breast, and provides relief from functional mass deficit. This technique minimizes the potential for a breast deformity once the tumor is resected.
