Breast cancer is the most frequent cancer among women. The emphasis on aesthetic outcomes and quality of life after breast cancer surgery has motivated breast surgeons to develop oncoplastic breast-conserving surgery. Oncoplastic techniques combine oncologic surgery with plastic surgery techniques. The main objective remains oncologic safety. This study investigates the oncological and aesthetic results of these techniques. Mean follow-up varied significantly in included studies, although, it did not exceed six years. The research found no randomized controlled trials. There was great variation in the frequency of margin involvement. Most studies are negatively influenced by methodological shortcomings and the absence of robust design. Established goals of OPS are to broaden indications of breast conservation towards larger tumors by improving aesthetic outcomes. There is a growing demand to standardize various aspects of OPS for implementation into clinical practice. Current evidence on OPS is based on poorly designed and underpowered studies. Research efforts should focus on Level I evidence assessing oncological and aesthetic outcomes of OPS and obtained survival rates.
