We present two clinical cases of young women (38 and 25 years old) with gravidic gigantomastia who presented with mastalgia, posture alterations and decreased quality of life, one of which was even complicated by cutaneous necrosis and infection. The treatment was surgical, the techniques used were chosen according to the anatomical characteristics and the clinical status of the patients: Thorek technique for the first case and bilateral mastectomy in the second.
