Oncoplastic surgery of the breast is performed to provide a mastectomy patient with exceptional medical and cosmetic results from the mastectomy alone, without the need for additional procedures. New technology has allowed for the development of advanced skin-sparing mastectomies that remove cancerous tissue while leaving the overlying skin intact.
Other oncoplastic procedures include breast-conserving surgery that removes the entire tumor, and then displaces nearby breast tissue into the affected area for an improved aesthetic outcome. The benefits to patients are less-invasive cancer treatments and a wider range of reconstruction options, as well as less scarring from surgery.
This multidisciplinary surgical approach provides exceptional medical and cosmetic results.
