What is Oncoplastics?
Oncoplastics is a specialised surgical technique which allows trained breast surgeons to address tissue defects that affect the overall aesthetics and feeling of the breasts. A significant amount of planning goes into this type of surgical approach and it is tailored to the individual patient, removing the breast cancer in such a way that minimises the impact on physical look of the breast.
What are the benefits for patients who are suitable for oncoplastic breast surgery?
- Combining these techniques allows appropriate patients to have one general aesthetic for the surgery compared to previously having to undergo a second operation several months later to try and modify the breast.
- It assists in minimising the long-term effects on a patient’s mental wellbeing by aiming to maintain a patient’s femininity
