Breast Oncoplastic Surgery


Breast cancer has emerged as the most prevalent cancer among women in urban areas, with cases rising rapidly. Approximately 1 in 25-30 urban women are at risk of developing breast cancer during their lifetime, a figure significantly higher than that of rural India but lower than the rates in the US and UK. Alarmingly, the incidence of breast cancer is increasing in younger age groups, particularly among women aged 35-45.

While age and family history play a role in breast cancer risk, it’s crucial to note that only 5-10% of cases are attributed to familial factors. Detecting breast cancer early is paramount, as it significantly improves treatment options and outcomes. Though a diagnosis of breast cancer may seem daunting, advancements in early detection methods offer hope for effective treatment.

At Anvesh Cancer Care Hospital, we emphasize the importance of proactive breast health management. Every woman should be vigilant about any changes in their breast tissue, as early detection can save lives. Our dedicated team is committed to providing comprehensive care and support throughout every stage of the breast cancer journey.

Risk factors for Breast Oncoplastic Surgery


Breast oncoplastic surgery is a surgical technique that combines oncologic (cancer treatment) principles with plastic surgery techniques to remove cancerous tissue from the breast while preserving its shape and appearance as much as possible.
Women diagnosed with early-stage breast cancer who require surgical removal of the tumor while aiming to preserve the breast's appearance are suitable candidates for breast oncoplastic surgery. Additionally, women seeking breast conservation therapy may benefit from this approach.
Breast oncoplastic surgery offers several benefits, including improved cosmetic outcomes, reduced risk of deformity or asymmetry, and enhanced psychological well-being by preserving the breast's natural appearance. It also allows for a wider range of tumor excision while maintaining breast shape and function.
Recovery from breast oncoplastic surgery varies depending on the extent of the procedure and individual factors. Generally, patients can expect some discomfort, swelling, and bruising in the treated area, which typically subside within a few weeks. Most individuals can resume normal activities gradually, following their surgeon's recommendations.
As with any surgical procedure, there are potential risks and complications associated with breast oncoplastic surgery. These may include infection, bleeding, scarring, changes in breast sensation, and rare instances of implant complications. However, these risks are minimized when the surgery is performed by experienced surgeons in appropriate medical facilities.
