oncoplastic breast reconstruction

Breast Reconstruction after a lumpectomy is a relatively new area in Breast Cancer. In general, it combines breast reduction techniques with Lumpectomy in order to optimize patient outcomes. With how common Breast Reduction and Lumpectomy are, it was only a matter of time before Serendipity allowed these procedures to be combined.

the advantages

The basic concept of an Oncoplastic Reconstruction is similar to a Breast Reduction – except that in addition to removing the extra weight and volume that is normally done with a Breast Reduction, the tumor is removed as well, thus accomplishing 2 goals at the same time. There are several roles that an Oncoplastic Reconstruction can play in the setting of lumpectomy, for example:

you were considering a breast reduction prior to your diagnosis

you have a large tumor in a small breast

your breast surgeon is concerned about a change in your breast shape after removal of the tumor

there are pre-existing asymmetries or shape issues which could worsen after removal of the tumor

“Oncoplastic Breast Reconstruction offers patients a chance to receive significant symptomatic and aesthetic benefits in addition to the standard surgical treatment of their cancer, and offers a significant silver lining to the breast cancer treatment process.”
