Abstract: Gestational macromastia is a rare and complex disorder. Establishing an optimal medical and surgical management regimen has been challenging. Medical regimens have included tamoxifen, progesterone, bromocriptine, and testosterone. Surgical therapies have included reduction mammaplasty and mastectomy. This report will highlight the successful medical and surgical management in a woman with severe gestational macromastia.
