At Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics of Littleton, CO, our board-certified plastic surgeon provides breast and body procedures to assist patients in feeling confident in their appearance and enjoying clothes that fit properly. When women have had a mastectomy done after a cancer diagnosis, they often feel self-conscious about their breasts. Our team can provide oncoplasty to restore the breasts after removal due to cancer.
What Is an Oncoplasty Procedure?
Oncoplasty is a reconstructive surgical technique used to correct or improve the appearance of a person’s body after cancer surgery. The procedure can be performed on any area of the body where cancer has been removed, and the surrounding tissue needs to be improved for cosmetic reasons. This can include areas such as the face, breast, abdomen, arms, or legs. Oncoplasty is not only limited to improving aesthetics but also helps restore physical functions like mobility and sensation in some cases.
Can I Have Oncoplasty Performed After a Mastectomy?
During an oncoplasty procedure, our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lisa Hunsicker of Revalla Plastic Surgery and Medical Aesthetics, uses various techniques to remove excess skin and fat while keeping important breast structures intact. She may also perform contouring procedures like liposuction and tissue reconstruction using techniques such as flap repair. For women who have recently had a mastectomy, Dr. Lisa Hunsicker can recommend an oncoplasty procedure to restore the natural contour of their breasts.
What Are the Benefits of Having an Oncoplasty Procedure?
Oncoplasty has many benefits for patients, including improved cosmetic appearance and functionality. The careful removal of excess skin and fat can help create a smoother and more natural look after cancer surgery. In addition, reconstructive techniques such as flap repair can help reestablish sensation or mobility lost due to cancer treatment. An oncoplasty also serves as a form of emotional healing by helping patients feel better about their bodies after cancer treatment.
