Plastic Surgery

Oncoplastic breast surgery combines the principles of breast cancer surgery and plastic surgery to achieve a superior aesthetic result.

Oncoplastic breast surgery techniques allow the cancer surgeon to remove more breast tissue with a wider margin around the cancer. Immediately following the cancer removal, the plastic surgeon then uses plastic surgery techniques to optimize the cosmetic outcome.

What can oncoplastic surgery do for me?

Oncoplastic surgery not only removes the cancer, it also prevents undue scarring and deformation of the breast, helping to maintain an aesthetically pleasing breast after all of the treatment for cancer is complete.

What can I expect during oncoplastic breast surgery?

Oncoplastic surgery can usually be performed on an outpatient basis. Recovery is faster and far less painful than for traditional reconstructive surgeries. Additionally, patients can avoid having subsequent revision surgeries, which are often needed with breast implants.
