Oncoplastic surgery: A better choice in cancer treatment


What is oncoplastic surgery?

Oncoplastic surgery represents the integration of plastic surgery techniques into breast cancer surgery to achieve aesthetic and cosmetic results, enhancing quality of life of the patients, without compromising control of disease.

The practice of oncoplastic surgery arose back in the 1990’s as the result of plastic surgeons pioneering to introduce improved aesthetic techniques into breast cancer treatment.

In this relatively new surgical specialty, the woman as an individual is treated, not just the cancer. With oncoplastic surgery, the cancer is removed and the cosmetic reconstruction is performed during the same procedure – which is a whole new approach to treating breast cancer.

However, as with all types of surgery, there are both advantages and disadvantages.  Click here to learn more about these and the procedure in general.

This newsletter is the first in a series of newsletters, where we bring focus on the different types of breast cancer surgeries. In-depth knowledge about these surgeries and the techniques behind them is crucial for us when we develop post-surgery bras, as every single bra is targeted the specific needs for post-op compression and support.
