Breast reconstruction is a series of surgical procedures performed to recreate a breast. Reconstructions are commonly begun after portions of one or both breasts are removed as part of the treatment for breast cancer at the time of a mastectomy, or later. Oncoplastic Breast Surgery is a combination of the best and latest techniques in plastic surgery and surgery for Breast Cancer. The aim is to provide the best cosmetic outcome. At the time of a lumpectomy, the plastic surgeon will perform a bilateral breast reduction or lift, removing breast tissue from the cancerous breast as well as modifying the normal breast. These procedures generally involve an incision around the nipple and areola, a vertical incision from the nipple to the lower fold of the breast, and a horizontal incision in the fold of the breast. A breast may need to be refashioned for other reasons such as trauma or to correct abnormalities that occur during breast development.
