Oncoplastic breast conservation surgery performed by an experienced and expert breast surgeon leads to lower re-excision rates compared to standard breast conservation surgery (therapy).
With this type of surgery, the surgeon performs extensive resection without compromising breast aesthetics.
An excellent surgical outcome with respect to oncoplastic breast conservation surgery for breast cancer requires – the experience, expertise and dexterity of the female breast oncoplastic surgeon. In addition to the technical skills and overall experience of performing complex breast surgeries – the breast oncoplastic surgeon’s other attributes – such as the number of surgeries performed in the past (repetitive ability of performing breast conservation surgeries with precision); dedication of the surgeon and decision-making skills are also indispensable.
A Modern, Experienced Lady Oncoplastic Surgeon Must Follow some Specific and Crucial Steps – including the following:
- Ultrasonography, mammography and Magnetic Imaging-guided local staging of the cancer.
- Comprehensive preoperative study of the tumour with respect to calcifications and localization.
- Selection of the best oncoplastic breast surgical technique based on the decision taken collectively by a multidisciplinary surgery board.
- Selection of surgical technique tailormade according to the patient’s needs.
- Intraoperative ultrasound-guided resection of the tumour.
- Intraoperative radiological and pathological evaluation of the tumour for defining the lesion and margins of resection.
- Defining tumour bed within the excision cavity to guide adjuvant breast radiotherapy.
The above parameters will help in improving both the oncological and cosmetic outcomes of the procedure – keeping the breast aesthetics intact as the excision of healthy breast tissue is kept minimum.
Oncoplastic breast conservation surgery is being increasingly used with exceptional outcomes as the technique helps in extensive resection of breast tissue with safer margins – improving breast aesthetics. Therefore, breast cancer patients who require surgery should consider this option. Breast-conserving surgery is sometimes called lumpectomy, quadrantectomy, partial mastectomy, or segmental mastectomy depending on how much tissue is removed.
