Bilateral fibroadenosis is a rare, benign disorder, affecting adolescents or women of childbearing age. Choosing the most optimal therapy that manages both the physical and psychological aspects of the disease is a challenge. The goals of the treatment are complete resection of the lesions with optimal cosmesis. Options range from cryoablation, ultrasound-guided vacuum-assisted eradication and simple excision of the lesions to subcutaneous mastectomy with reconstruction. We present a case of a 25-year-old woman with 37 complex fibroadenomas affecting both breasts who was treated with nipple-sparing subcutaneous mastectomy and silicone implant reconstruction to both the surgeons’ and patient’s satisfaction.
