Oncoplastic breast surgery is a transformative procedure aimed at rebuilding the breast after breast cancer surgery. The main goal is rebuilding the breast after breast cancer surgery while prioritizing minimal scarring and preserving natural breast tissue.

With this approach all cancerous tissue is removed while retaining as much healthy tissue as possible. This meticulous approach ensures minimal scarring and a breast that looks as natural as possible post-surgery.

For cases where a tumour is large or in a challenging location, I may utilize breast reduction techniques to optimize the outcome. This can involve nipple repositioning and adjusting breast size to achieve symmetry. If necessary, I also perform surgery on the unaffected breast to ensure both sides match aesthetically.

In situations where tumour removal might compromise breast appearance, alternative options like using tissue from nearby areas, such as LICAP flaps or mastectomy may be considered. Every decision is tailored to the individual’s unique circumstances and preferences.

For those undergoing mastectomy, immediate or delayed reconstruction is available using various techniques such as implant-based reconstruction, flap reconstruction utilizing back muscle, or DIEP flap utilizing abdominal tissue. I understand that not everyone can undergo cancer and reconstructive surgery simultaneously, so I offer flexible approaches to accommodate individual needs.

Combining cancer and reconstructive surgery in one operation offers several benefits, including reduced anaesthesia time and a smoother recovery. Additionally, for those undergoing breast reduction, this approach can enhance the effectiveness of post-surgery radiotherapy, particularly for individuals with larger breasts.

Recovery from oncoplastic surgery typically occurs either on an outpatient basis or with a short hospital stay. Some discomfort and numbness around the breasts and armpits are normal and manageable. I provide comprehensive post-operative instructions, including guidance on drain management and signs of potential complications.
