Cypriot surgeon, Dr. Georgia Koulermou, was honoured with an award at the International Breast Conference 2022, held recently in London.

Koulermou, a certified cosmetic, reconstructive and oncoplastic surgeon, was awarded for her own technique, called the “Triple Flap”, which combines breast lift and nipple-sparing mastectomy.

“This operation reduces complications and at the same time the mastectomy gives an aesthetic breast lift,” Koulermou said.

The technique, considered an innovation in mastectomy, is designed to be effective for cases where the breast is large.

According to a press release, this is a first-time achievement in medical literature, since previously there was no technique to preserve the nipple in such cases.

Koulermou introduced and described her award-winning technique six years ago and has published it in international scientific journals.
