Macromastia is a condition of abnormal enlargement of the breast in excess of the normal proportion. It can be unilateral or bilateral and generally manifest at puberty when secondary sexual characters start appearing. Other patients may develop this condition at the time of pregnancy (Gestational macromastia). We present a case of young unmarried girl having unilateral macromastia due to polymastia. Unique feature in this case has been presence of two nipple areola complexes over right breast mound, one at normal site and another just superior to the inframammary crease in the line of embryonic milk line. The affected breast was almost double the size of contra lateral breast. Besides she also had bilateral hypertrophy of axillary breasts. Vertical scar reduction mammaplasty along with excision of axillary breasts was successfully carried out with gratifying results.
