What is Local Oncoplasty?

Many women can benefit from oncoplastic surgery, or oncoplasty, which offers a more natural breast shape so patients can look and feel more confident after surgery. Oncoplastic surgery combines the latest plastic surgery techniques with breast surgical oncology. When a large lumpectomy is required that will leave the breast distorted, the remaining tissue is shaped to realign the nipple and areola and restore a natural appearance to the breast.

Who usually gets Local Oncoplasty?

Local Oncoplasty is a good option for patients who are candidates for breast conservation therapy or lumpectomy. Oncoplastic breast surgery aims to achieve good aesthetic outcomes for women with breast cancers who would have unacceptable outcomes with other Breast Conserving Surgery techniques, and in addition, enable breast-conserving surgery for larger breast cancers.

What to expect before surgery?

d a get a baseline mammogram. The patient needs to stop smoking for a certain period of time before and after surgery. Avoid taking aspirin, anti-inflammatory drugs and herbal supplements, to control bleeding during surgery.

What happens during surgery?

At the time of lumpectomy, the surgical oncologist, Dr. Monika, will remove the tumor and the lymph nodes. The plastic surgeon will perform a bilateral breast reduction or lift, removing breast tissue from the cancerous breast as well as modifying the normal breast. The procedures generally involve an incision around the nipple and areola, a vertical incision from the nipple to the lower fold of the breast, and a horizontal incision in the fold of the breast. The surgeon will recreate the breast tissue with an implant or other tissue from the body. This technique often is called a skin- and nipple-sparing mastectomy.

After the procedure

These surgeries generally do not involve drains. The doctor might suggest you to wear a supportive bra. They may possibly require one night in the hospital. Recovery time is six weeks, but most people usually feel better and are able to return to work in three to four weeks. It’s important to remember that before cancer, the breasts are not identical—they’re not twins, but sisters. One is typically fuller or larger than the other. After breast cancer surgery, the breasts will not be identical, either. However, at Sakhi Oncology, we work to make them as similar in size and shape as possible.
