Oncoplastic breast surgery combines the most contemporary surgical techniques with surgical breast oncology, and offers a solution to the deficit caused by the removal of a tumour from the breast area. At Geoplasty Plastic Surgery, we offer guidance and the most advanced methods for oncoplastic breast surgery.
What oncoplastic breast surgery is
When a tumour, either benign or malignant (cancer), is removed from the breast, a deficit is created in the area, which may leave ugly scars, alter the shape of the breast and deform it, resulting in the patient feels uncomfortable with her image.
Oncoplastic breast surgery combines the most contemporary cosmetic surgical techniques with breast surgical oncology and provides the solution to this problem.
Close cooperation is required between the breast surgeon who will remove the tumour and the plastic surgery specialist who will reconstruct the deficit and, in most cases, improve the shape of the breast.
How oncoplastic breast surgery is performed
The top priority of oncoplastic breast surgery is the proper oncologic removal of the lesion.
Initially, the patient must be fully briefed by the general surgeon on the procedure to be followed. Then, the necessary lab and imaging checks are performed.
The action plan is devised while working closely with the plastic surgeon. Prior to surgery, the breast is carefully designed, so that the incisions where the tumour will be removed are identical to the ones used in contemporary plastic surgery for cosmetic breast surgery (breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift).
In this way:
- Proper oncologic removal of the lesion is performed.
- The scars are minimal.
- The possibility of deformity is eliminated.
- The result is natural, in most cases better than before.
Oncoplastic breast surgery is planned in such a way that it takes into account possible postoperative chemotherapies and radiotherapies.
In some cases, revision surgery may be needed at a later date, especially in the form of fat transfer, so that the final result is flawless.
