Modern Approach in the Breast Cancer Surgery: Oncoplastic Surgery
MODERN APPROACH IN THE BREAST CANCER SURGERY: ONCOPLASTIC SURGERY. A DIFFERENT APPROACH TO THE BREAST CANCER IN LARGE BREAST-MACROMASTIA: THERAPEUTIC REDUCTION MAMMOPLASTY
Oncoplastic breast surgery is the application of the surgical process to be applied for the breast cancer together with the plastic surgery process that will create a better aesthetic result in the breast. As a result of the oncoplastic surgery applications, it has been shown in many studies that the patients are in a better psychological state after the treatment and that their follow-up can be done without causing serious difficulties and that oncological safety is good.
It is one of the oncoplastic surgery applications in which the breast is reshaped together with the breast conserving surgical process where the diseased area of the breast is removed and the breast is protected.
When the breast cancer occurs in macromastia and ptotic breasts (large and drooping breasts), therapeutic reduction mammoplasty, which is the operation of reducing the opposite breast in order to simultaneously remove the diseased area in the breast and to reduce the breast and provide symmetry, has been widely performed in oncoplastic breast surgery in recent years.
With this surgical technique, the surgical procedure for the breast cancer is safely performed on the patient, while at the same time; the negative effects of large and sagging breasts on women are prevented. In this surgery, the cancerous area in the breast is removed and it is confirmed by the pathology department during the operation that it is removed with a safe surgical margin and then both breasts are reduced by plastic surgery methods. Thus, it is possible to remove the cancerous area in the breast safely and broadly for an aesthetically pleasing result to prevent the negative effects of the large breasts (such as rashes that can be under the breast, back and neck pain, curvature of the spine) and to reduce the toxic effect of radiation therapy during cancer treatment.
“The women diagnosed with the breast cancer should be rewarded with appropriate and precise treatment.”
