Oncoplastics - Breast Reduction with Lumpectomy

Sometimes a breast reduction may be an option for larger breasted women who have been diagnosed with breast cancer. The lump is removed at the same time as the breast reduction and often the unaffected breast is removed as well. Many factors are considered, such as the specific cancer diagnosis, stage, tumor location, breast size, treatment modalities and personal goals.

Following lumpectomy, a breast reduction will remove excess breast and fatty tissue in one or both breasts, making them smaller, lifted and more proportional to your body. Your size, anatomy and tumor location will dictate what type of surgical approach your plastic surgeon may use. Usually, women are left with a scar around the areola, a vertical incision from the areola to the base of the breast fold and sometimes an additional scar along the breast fold.

Next: Nipple reconstruction

Note about these procedures: When patients come in for a new patient consult, Dr. Burgess will review the various procedures she performs as well as discuss the other options available to patients. She will help guide you towards the reconstructive surgery that most compliments your aesthetic goals, as well as maintain close communication with your other physicians.
