Advances in Breast Surgery
There have been tremendous changes and advances in the surgical and cosmetic aspects of breast surgery. Like many other areas our theme is “less is more.” We now work closely with our plastic surgery colleagues to offer patients a lumpectomy with immediate oncoplasty (reduction and lift) or immediate augmentation.
Women with A and B cup breasts are often excellent candidates for nipple sparing mastectomy. Mastectomy reconstruction can be performed with implants or with tissue.
We are pleased to work with patients and a multi-disciplinary team of plastic surgeons and radiation oncologists to plan the best surgical outcome.
