Abstract  
The authors describe a new oncoplastic technique for lateral breast lumps. A double lateral submammary incision: elongated S (left) or Z (right) as half moon below and above the natural lateral submammary line allow a large excision of the lump and a reconstruction of the defect with two half flaps brought together in the middle. The complications of this procedure are very few and the cosmetic results are excellent.
Key words:  Breast oncoplasty      Crescent flap      Breast surgery      Lateral incision
