Oncoplastic surgery of the breast is performed to provide effective oncologic and cosmetic results for breast cancer patients without the need for additional procedures. New technology has allowed for the development of advanced skin-sparing mastectomy procedures that remove the cancerous tissue while leaving the overlying skin intact.
In certain instances, a tumor is located within a segment of breast that can be excised, and the remaining breast tissue is moved or rotated, similar to a breast reduction or lift. This allows the breast to have a natural shape but smaller size after surgery. The other breast can then undergo a reduction procedure to maintain symmetry.
